Can you guys give me an idea what the average loctician charges for a wash and retwist for each visit while your hair is locing? I have been seeing a loctician for the past few weeks and I love her work but it is rather expensive...I am considering searching for another loctician but if what my current loctician is charging is the norm then i will bite the bullet and stay where I am...thanks

I opted not to use her, but my proposed loctician was gonna charge $60 for the initial 'do and $15 every 4 weeks for maintenance. I decided to go for it on my own, though.

my 'tician charged 65 for the initial and 35 for maitenance. however, I only went to her to get them started. I maintain my own locs.

$65 for wash/condition and latching. I only go about once every 2 months. Otherwise I just wash and retwist at home.

My original start price was $45 for 2-strand twist and $50 every 4 weeks for maintenance. I figure once I get the hang of doing it myself - I'll maintain them (more than likely after the first 6 months).

wow-$15 buck sounds great. I paid $65 for the inital twists but I will be maintaing myself because the maintenance prices is the same.

<span style='color:purple'>the maintenance does not seem complicated.........i decided to start doing my own hair. i noticed a lot of the members here handle their own. i figure if there is a problem i can ask my "tician" or refer to the board! either way i can&#39;t go wrong...........</span>

I started with a loctician but the prices aren&#39;t relevant cuz I was at home in Barbados at the time but I maintain them myself and its not so hard. It takes a long time initially but I&#39;ve gotten palm rolling and retwisting down to 1/2 hour to 45 mins max after washing. the only thing I miss is the feeling of being pampered but then I think of all the money I didn&#39;t spend and I am quite content!

I am stylistically challenged but I manage to palm roll my locs and they look pretty decent. If you don&#39;t want to palm roll, search this site and check out rockinlocs&#39;s site to find out about latching and other ways to maintain.
