I’ve
decided to lock my hair.  Of course, I’m
too cheap to go to a salon so I’m doing it myself.   My hair locs on its on when its
braided.  How hard can it be?   Pretty hard. 
I had this idea in my head that if I did some mini two strand twists and undid them
then I would be able to start my dreads no problem.  
My Hair right after I took out the twists.  Cute.
Wrong. 
Apparently it’s a long process and when you start with two strand twists
you don’t unbraid them. GASP.  That was a
shocker because two strand twists do not look
like dreads. 

Well…after a few MONTHS
the twists thicken and become dreaded and you palm roll the roots every few
weeks

Hair a few days later…not so cute
In order
to m educate myself, I’m going
to chronicle my journey on the two strand twist method of dread locking on this
blog.  But hey, this is supposed to be a
writer’s blog.  Yes, it is.  I thought about creating a separate blog, but
I ain’t got time for that.  Besides, I only have a few followers.  
So here are some of the questions I need to answer:
  1. Are my
    two strand twists too small?  Do I
    need to evenly part my hair for them to look good?
  2. Should I start over
    with freshly washed hair?
  3. How often and how
    should I wash my hair?
  1. What is
    the best locking gel?
  1. What are
    the best blogs for this information?
  2. How can I keep my
    dreads from being too scalpy?
  3. Is it locs, locks,
    dreads or dreadlocks?
