Number 1: You'll never have locks like those. Everyone's locks are different. You can't force them to look like anyone else's no matter how much you force them to form the way you want. Different textured hair forms differently. The shape of your head is different, so the locks lay differently. There are thousands of factors that go into how your locks will form.
2: Never go back there. The needle they used was a crochet hook. That is the close second in most damaging things you can do to locks next to wax. Check out the recovery forums. Crocheting breaks your hair into smaller and smaller pieces, which in turn makes them more and more frizzy. Which makes you think you need more crocheting. If you leave them alone, hey will fix themselves.
3: You just "got" them. Locks do not form overnight, or in 1 session. any starter method you use will never create locks. Locks are got "gotten", they are grown. On average, it takes about a year to have mature locks. In the first 6 months, you will see a lot of unraveling and untangling. The a lot of reknotting and retangling. It's part of the journey. You HAVE to let this happen. Loops and bumps will form. You may go a little nuts at first not knowing what to do about it. DON'T d anything. this is the sign that they are knotting. If you don't see bumps and loops, they aren't knotting.
4 (But should be 1): Yours look juts fine. They look like what locks should look like in the beginning. Why don't you think you can go out like that? We all go through messy stages. It will last a while, so get used to it. There's no instant cure for messiness. Embrace the fact that your locks look normal. Everyones locks looked like that. Check out the timeline forums. And there is a discussion about the beauty of messy locks on here. Also, look up photo's of the member's Heather, Ixchel, and Sussi. Just to name a few. See how beautiful their hair is and messy too.
5: Just be patient
