I'm Henrique, I live in Rio de Janeiro - Brazil.
I'm starting my locking journey and I might need some help with questions that been frying my mind. I was using a sponge to naturally section them and get some good afro looking at the first stage then I started to fingertwist what the sponge had sectioned.
I will show you guys a couple of pictures of how my hair looks right now. The thing is, I want my dreads to be sectioned and healthly, without any major need of products or whatever, I want them to be legit.
So, the first question is, can I section it with my own fingers or using a comb would be the best way?
Is it late (By how the pictures look) to use the comb?
Would it be better if I combtiwst them Asap? Or can I just use the comb to section them and maybe finger twist ?
Should I start using gel to get them "harder" or maybe "stuck"?
How long will it take for me to actually see my hair locking (Judging by my hair texture and size)?
I wish my locks look something similar to this (about the size/thickness) http://www.mens-hairstyle.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/Natural-Afro-American-Hair-With-Dreadlocks.jpg
But I do know my locks will not look like these at all, mine will be unique and thats why I want to do it myself without any type of "professional" assistance. Because it's what I call a journey, having it done by me and maybe a little help of my girlfriend
