I always loved the look of really fat locks. SO when I counted how many I had when I first started, I counted 23. They were pretty thin, though. My hair is really thin. SO I decided to congo most of them with others. Now most of them are made up of no less than 2 locks. Some of 6-7. I can't wait till they are super long and it's clear that I only have 15 coming out of my head, but there are still 23 at the tips

The second one I showed and the second to last one are my favorite congos.  The third one I showed with a little stub is probably my favorite lock, though

Nice congos! I like the huge one you showed last.

mine were really mature when I started to let the roots congo.  So, yeah.  They'll always stay separated.  If yours are looser, they have a better chance of coming together completely.  But you'd have to use beads, or wraps, or something to force that along.   Most likely they'd stay separate at the bottom

Do the tips always stay separate while the rest of it joins? I only have one congo and it kind of looks like a forked tongue. I like it though, looks very unique.

heather i would think your far enough along to let em congo tho since some rots are loose i would think once you start it might congo outta control as they gobble eachother up

it's easier to let them congo while they are still zig zaggy.  It's just important to know how big you want them.  Don't let them congo to a size you don't want

so when is a good time to allow congos to form? i have thin hair too but i counted my locs the other day and i have 73. most of them are tiny but they're still zigzaging and shrinking up. i still have a lot of them with 6 inches or more of unknotted hair before it gets to the root. i have a few bigger dreads that i feel are a lot stronger and would like to encourage some congoing. i've never had to do much separating and my hair isn't very clingy though.
