my first attempt at doing locs!

So my boo has locs, and for so long I've wanted him to teach me how to do them because I feel like dreads is the only thing I don't know how to do to natural hair. His sister is actually a hairstylist n she is amazing! She does everything under the sun when it comes to hair;and she's don't some pretty dope styles to his hair. I've been saying for a year that I have to get her to teach me because I knew that was the only way he would let me get my hands in his hair.

I recently bought the Carol's daughter "loc butter" for my (future) twist-outs n his locs. I'm trying to get him into the healthy hair stuff too n he's so supportive and really open to it all. So he finally decided to teach me how to do his locs n let me tell y'all, I was pressed! Lol. So after teaching me with a couple of locs I caught on pretty quickly, and then I went on to twist the rest of his locs.

It took me two days with breaks and stuff tho. That was the most precise, multi-stepped hairstyle I've ever done. Whew! But we both enjoyed the quality time together, watching movies, talking, and listening to Jim Rohn, Les Brown, and Tony Robbins audio's (he's a life coach and we are constantly perfecting our crafts and living our dreams).

The products I used were Carol's Daughter "loc butter" and Garnier Fructis Style "water based shine wax"

Here's the before picture
