    Unhappy

    Hi, my name is La-Donya I',m 18.. Ive been lurking on here for quite some time and after all of the topics and tips Ive seen- I decided to post! Basically Im living near London in england- the UK in general isnt big on locs/ natural hair/ black people lol- they havent even caught up to US yet. Until I move back to the US or to the caribbean- I'ma need some tips, support and suggestions as Ive started my baby locs (1 week 1 day). I'll be posting pics soon- but since I started with relaxed ends I can guess its going to be a long process! I got inspiration from my auntie (no1 else around me including parents and friends are too big on locs either) so apart from her- I get slightly lost at times. Ive started with TST's and about 3 inches of new growth (my hair which ive just cut to 6 inches from 11!)

    Any advice for newbies? - especially cos theres still relaxed ends from 9 months ago. I've read about waxes and shampooing- there are NO loctitians near me apart from my aunty.. Ive read on sleep methods but I just wanna focus on the fact that my ends are still kinda straight and even tho i rinsed em 2day (under a stocking cap) - any advice will be greatly appreciated. Newbie loc'ers please join in also. Show me love x

    I cant wait to hit the month mark- Im counting days. A good post is the &#39;top products&#39; post- or the loc journeys, which I&#39;ve found helpful. 1 thing that puzzles me is that theres been a lot of advice for not using beeswax- but my aunty uses 100% on her hair and has no build up- and their healthy to the extent of my knowledge..I found some good you tube vids aswell. Cool fotki btw :blush:

    Thank U.
    I just let my hair grow out a little bit. The front and back of my hair was always the hardest to keep twisted.
    So those parts I were able to just cut off. The crown of my head had no issues locking and I tried to unlock that part but I got impatient :unsure: so I just cut them off. So the front of my hair is longer than the back :P
