I only did it to a few in the very beginning.  Once they matured you can't tell the difference between them and any other free-formed locks, except at the root.  

I was sucked into the idea that you had to do it when I first started.  I ended up breaking so many hairs and actually growing a nasty callus on my palm that took years to go away.  That's how hard I did it.  The result was 4-5 really mature looking super long locks that were 5-6 inches longer than the rest of my hair.  It looked awful for a long time until the rest of my hair naturally caught up.  Luckily none of those locks fell out from the root damage, and probably wont, because I have babied those ever since to help strengthen the root.

And now, looking back at it, it was unbelievably unnatural to mess with my hair that much, and it totally went against they point of locks and the reason I started growing them.  I'm lazy and didn't want to have to mess with my hair every day.

-i never palm rolled in my life ..still not even sure how to..i mean i get the concept but the  actually doing it thing just seems so ..alien to me so unnatural  that i cant get the signal from my brain to my hands to actually accomplish it ..so i never bothered

its funny how kb/dhhq say palm rolling is esential and should be done all the time (cause with wax in them nothing at all will happen if you dont palm roll)  and even suggest u palm roll till u feel heat

and smell burning hao=ir!

I palm-rolled in the beginning, and it only made them look neat for like 10 minutes. And admittedly that was because of it being compressed into the wax. If I palm-rolled now it wouldn't look any different cos it's just...dreaded. All the undreaded or looser hair would still stick out. Thanks for the video though, it's cool of you to make a video showing the differences in the thickness of the roots just from the palm-rolling.
