    Great thread! I'm still in the baby stages, so I don't have much to offer. But, I'm soaking in all this info.!

    Thank you for starting this thread, Alma! As a newbie, I too am appreciating the wisdom of the loc elders.
    How will your 2019 be different than any other year?

    I use 6-7 oz of water with 1-2 oz of olive oil, 10 drops of sweet almond oil and 10 drops of tea tree oil.

    I found my Essential Oils (EOs) at JoAnn Etc and at Michaels. Look in the section where you find the products to make soap and lotions. A 1 or 2 ounce bottle of this stuff can go a very long way.

    I'd also add:

    - Avoid any product that's completely solid at room temp (beeswax, shea, etc.)

    - Herbal and ACV rinses work wonders!

    - Realize that you only have so much control over the process--regardless of how you start your locs, or how often you retwist, latch, etc., frizz, fuzz and rebellion are all part of it.

    - Water is your hair's best friend!
    I like this list.

    Just one to add:

    Your locs are going to be uniquely beautiful. Don't expect them to look like anyone else's no matter how you start or care for them.

    DITTO! EVERYONE. I GUESS THAT THERE IS NO WRONG ANSWER HERE.

    THE LESS THE BETTER FOR ME. I FEEL THAT MY LOCZ ARE PROGRESSING NICELY AT 2 MONTHS. I AM LUVING EVERY MINUTE OF MY JOURNEY. I ONLY USE WATER AND LIGHT OIL FOR SPRITZING IN THE MORNING; THAT ALL. MAYBE TWICE A MONTH I&#39;LL DO A BRAID OUT USING MY WATER AND LITE OIL PLUS SHEA BUTTER, ALL ORGANIC PRODUCTS. THAT IS IT, MY WHOLE PRODUCT LINE. CHECK ME OUT AT www.microbraidlocz.com

    *sigh*

    If only I knew this tip in my early stages ~ It was only when I realised this much later that I began to enjoy my locs and the journey.

    ~If at any stage you are uncomfortable with what your loctician is doing to your locs, don&#39;t be afraid to be very clear and let them know or change loctician.

    Go with your instincts! They are your locs and you know whats best for them, so don&#39;t let others tell you otherwise. Your loctician should work with you, not against you.

    This is very helpful info. Thanks Alma for getting this discussion started. I realized at four months that water is really my best friend, now I just have to work on the oils to mix in . Hopefully I can find something I like.
    We can&#39;t always choose the thoughts that come to our minds, but we can decide to let them stay and fester or we can push them aside. We have a choice about that.
