Hi, wondering if I could get some advice please? I'm only 2.5 weeks into my journey but amazingly my hair is just loving being left alone! I swear intention has something to do with it. However, as it's locking up quickly, I'm facing greater and greater issues with separating. When they first started forming, they were joining together lower down. They were doing this tightly, but there was more room to work with and I got the hang of teasing out individual hairs so as not to damage my hair. Now, it's meshing together tightly from the roots. I spend the whole day (here and there as my arms ache working on just one loc!) separating, go to bed and BAM! The entire back of my hair is all meshed together! I'm not complaining about the amount of work needed at this stage, I'm happy to go with it, it's all part of a bigger journey. My issue is that every day this gets tighter and harder, and I'm getting a panicky feeling when trying to separate as it's getting more and more immovable. I'm worried that I'm heading into not enough time in the day to separate!
When would you start putting beads in? Would this help with keeping them sectioned? I have got two in now.
Tips greatly appreciated. Thank you!
