    Hi everyone,

    My locs will be 3 years old come February. So they're mature by now. But in the front of my head there was enough hair to start new locs. I created about 4 two-strand twists in the front. What's the best way to care for my mature locs AND my newbies?

    I am not an expert or even experienced seeing as I just started this journey, but I would think that you would care for your newbies in the same way that you cared for your locs when they were new.
    I can't be what you want me to be,
    I can only be, naturally, me. :heart

    I have 2 newbie locs made from my loose hairs...
    I just care for them like I did when my mature locs were new...

    I just braided mine and they're doing they're own thing, but if they unravel I redo the loose parts.

    What is your usual loc routine with your mature locs?
    Did you twist, latch or freeform?

    My maintenance routine consists of palmrolling all my locs every six weeks. I spritz every day with water, rosemary eo, almond and jojoba oils. Now, that its fall, I wash my hair every two weeks. :smug :smug I don't know if I should redo them via braids or keep them as they are considering I wet my hair every day....

    I think if your new locs are not unravelling, them keep them as they are and palm roll them along with your mature locs...

    I'm with alma, I have several little sprouts in my head and I treat them like I treated my starter locs. Most of them are locing now, so they just fall in line with the rest of them, LOL!
