Because my locs are almost identical to the locs in the 2nd video, I prefer the locs in the 1st lol Bigger locs look real good once they get some length. It's easy to get impatient with growth. Ain't no weaves, wigs, etc. when you're locking, you just have to wait for it.
I have 235 locs started from two-strand twists that look pretty much just like the ones in the 2nd video except her hair looks a little softer. Retwisting is a NIGHTMARE!!! If you latch locs that small, you risk breakage and that can make them thinner at the root. Not cute. If you palm roll or twist with gel, it takes forever and depending on how active you are and how much you wash, they may not hold.
Any way, 99% of the time I adore my hair but that 1% of the time I want to grab the clippers and shave it off!
Are you thinking about locking OP?
