I combined a few that would have been too small to be on their own, and I separated and recombined some that were initially 2, 3 or 4 headed dragons. He had huge sections of hair where the locks were super matted together and married. I was able to clean all those sections up and separate the locks. Some of them I left married.
This is what his hair looked like before: (days before wash day)

I always end my rotations going from the 12 to the 6 (think of the directions on the clock). Even if I don’t complete a full rotation I always end this way. That’s how I always know which direction I ended. Hope this helps.you did, but I’m still a bit confused . I’ll be back when it’s time to retighten and save the stress for then lol.
If you mean north, then I do the same. Unless I miscalculate how many rotations I can do on certain locks, then it's usually whatever direction is last before I get back to north, which would be west. I try not to end on south because then the lock would be sticking straight up or close to it. So usually if I can only do three rotations on a particular lock then I would go N, E, and then W or I would just go back N so the locks can lay straight down instead of in a crazy, unflattering direction.I always end my rotations going from the 12 to the 6 (think of the directions on the clock).

Yaaaaaaaassss! I live by both of these! I missed doing it yesterday as planned. I don't always rinse my scalp though....only if I feel like it's extra dry and needs it. I usually just allow my locks to get wet and then seal with oil when I get out the shower.I've really been enjoying water rinses lately. I'm a little sad that I probably won't be able to continue rinsing with water as often once it gets colder out. I'm also noticing that my scalp feels best when I oil it at least a few times a week if not every other day. I haven't bought any more Wild Growth Oil, I've just been using plain coconut oil.
Your hair looks amazing!Some loc pics. I'm almost 23mths loced
I wanna wash my hair, but the way my roots are set up..That’s gonna be a problem! I love getting my hair washed. I have never had a professional loc wash before. From the videos I have seen, a lot of stylists don’t shampoo locs very well.I still haven't done anything to my hair yet. Am I the only one who feels like your scalp isn't really clean unless you do your own shampooing?
