I’ve just started towel rubbing my hair and spraying with salt water, and after only 24 hours my hair is already beginning to knot up. Just to help it along, once I see it properly locing I will stop.
I am doing it 3 items a day with the towel, and spraying with salt water sparingly because I don’t want to damage my hair, and regularly throughout the day rubbing in an anti-clockwise direction with my hand. However, I’m worried that doing it too much could prevent it from locing as quickly.
My hair is curly (3B) with some waves also (2C), and extremely thick to the point where I look like I have an afro if I don’t get it thinned out often (and ginger, with some light brown, flecks of blond and even some gray) so my hair is literally all over the place. Haha.
Also, will washing it (with water only as I shower everyday and love my hair being wet) every day prevent it from locing?
also my hair grows incredibly quickly, so quickly that if I go and have a hair cut and thinned out, I have to have it cut again in 2-3 weeks because it has grown back to the same, if not more, length and thickness as before having it cut. And everyone else I’ve ever met in my 23 short years, all say they have never met anyone that grows hair so quickly and envy me for it, some even find it weird and crazy and other stuff...apparently hair should grow half and inch a month but mine grows way more than that.
Given that fact, from personal experience with your dreadlocks, how long do you think it’ll take for locs to form properly and dreadlocks to form?
