1 BS wash 2 locking up shampoo washes and home made sea salt spray once a day or a beach session instead! X) Locs are starting to form all over maybe 5 to 7 and 4 really good ones out of those. I bought a tam or slouch beanie 100% acrylic 2 days ago and it works awesome for the frizz puts it all back into separate locs and makes a few new knot each time! i have been sleeping with it and letting my hair get blown around so it gets frizzy then throw on the tam and POW! KNOTTY CENTRAL!
