Ok I just started locs a month and a half ago but my locs haven't quite loc'd yet. How long does it take for your hair to loc? What do you use to loc your hair with? And what do you do when there is buildup and dandruff in your newly started locs?

other than that, everyone's hair locks at different times. but a year is a MUST for beginners. Nice Dreads is a great book that breaks it down. Most would agree 3-5 years for mature locks that are COMPLETELY LOCKED. AND dandruff? ummm, wash it. you'll find alot of support and tips here for that. we dont believe in stinky dirty hair here. go get you a fishnet stocking cap somwhere if you twist to maintain and it will help hold the pattern while you wash and squeeze the soap out of your hair. you have aot of good questions. a search will lead you to more indepth answers and the link above will help you along that path.
