welcome and congrats on starting off right now
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.
its best if they dont
loose tips let water out blunttips hold it in making them take 5 times longer to dry
