    Default Detangle before starting?

    Peace.
    I'm looking to start locs from about 10-14 inches of loose hair. I'm thinking I want to grab and twist/roll to start and then allow them to do their own thing with no manipulation (not sure if that would be considered free form). I wear my hair in a shrunken very tangled fro most days. So my question is, should I detangle to start the locs or is that counter productive? Should I just grab and twist knots, tangles and all?
    Thanks in advance.

    I wouldn't advise twisting without detangling first.

    Think about it. (Or if you have time, try it...) With your hair in a shrunken 'fro, how easy do you think it would be for you to grab your hair section by section and roll those sections or put them into a set of twists?

    If doing that is easy for you, then never mind. However, in my opinion, natural hair is easier to manipulate once it's been detangled.
