    I've been meaning to post but I have had these in for about 3 weeks. Individual crotchet locs around the perimeter and traditional crochet locs in the back. I loved it, also loved wearing them with nothing on my edges for that more 'natural' look. I wouldn't suggest this hairstyle if your hair is long because I had to trim about an 1nch off because my hair was longer than the loc #notcomplaingthough.

    Also nothing like having actual loc'ed sisters compliment your faux locs.

    Been wearing these for the last week (there is one on each side). I re-do them every day without combing or anything. Working on rebraiding only every other day, then more.

    I have been protective styling with three strand twists. I had previously tried teo strand twists but they kept coming out. This method works better. I am going to make them smaller next time.

    Products used:
    - DIY leave in (aloe vera juice, vegetable glycerin, water)
    -DIY shea butter (shea butter, Jojoba oil, black castor oil, extra virgin olive oil and lavender oil)
