Welcome. The coconut oil is going to be too conditioning. For African textured hair, more conditioners are needed, but it will delay progress for your hair type.
Also, I see that some of them are really fat already. I love fat locks, but those ones may seem like the size you want now, but as they mature, they will become enormous. I can tell from the first pic that those 2 will become the size of your wrists, easily.
