What products do you use, and was it hard finding products that work for you?
I don't really retwist my hair much, but when I did I used a Loc Serum, and Natural Oasis oil. It's not hard to find products, just the RIGHT products for Locs.
How do you prevent build up in your hair?
By using light products. No heavy oils, no grease. And shampooing and conditioning on a consistent basis.
What is your favorite way to style your hair?
Tied back or a messy bun.
Do you have any tips/advice for anyone who want's to start their loc'ing journey?
PATIENCE! And creativity. Get you creative juices flowing to come up with different little way to wear your locs. Especially in the shorter stages.
