Check that vid out. Part 2 is coming soon. When you separate, don't separate all the way to your scalp. Just enough so the body of the locks aren't connected. You should always have a messy tangled rats nest around the roots
Straight hair doesn't necessarily knot slower than kinky hair. Eagle knows so Japanese guy who's hair locked up in weeks.
There are 1001 factors that go into how fast hair knots. How kinky or curly it is to start is only one of them.
I hope, now that you started, you can't see your scalp like in this pic
hahaha....yep I know. I have straight hair which would make the knotting longer compared to kinky hair. so, what i did here was I had my hair in curls so I can get the knotting a few weeks faster compared to if I had just my normal straight hair. It did the trick actually. i was trying to upload some of the photos I have but my connection is so slow... its over a month now since I did the twist N rip a few days after i did this curl thing.
What exactly is going on there? It looks unbelievably uncomfortable. What's the goo that is in your hair? Or is it just wet? I have to tel you, that there is nothing you should ever do to "prep" you hair for locks
