So of course I found this forum after I did my locs. I've been reading about all the different methods and my loctician seemed to have used a combination of 3 different methods. She back combed..then did some TnR, then a bit of crotchet (not much). She used a teeny, tiny amount of wax (like literally maybe half a dime size worth for my whole head). Then at the end she flipped and tucked them threw at the root (I think she did this twice and called it boxing them?). They look good and I'm happy with them, but now I'm wondering the best way to go about maintenance. I am suppose to go back in 3 months. My son had his hair done too. This is both of our first times. She told us to palm roll when we can, but it's not totally necessary. Just to make sure they stay separated. I've been reading on here about aloe vera gel. I have a plant, should I just use that when we palm roll? Oh, and she said do not wash for 3 weeks. Then sold me a bar of knotty boy starter soap to use after that.
