    2. Friday nights, I apply my DC to damp dirty hair in 10-14 sections using the relaxer method (sans the application brush), cover with a plastic bag and scarf and hit the sack.

    Saturday AM, I let it cool for 15-20 minutes, rinse the DC thoroughly.

    I apply my cowash mix or sulphate-free poo to each section, and massage it into my scalp thoroughly. Rinse well.

    I slather a slippery, silicone-free conditioner into each section, and then detangle slowly with my Denman D3 - starting from the ends and working up to the roots. Rinse 80-90% out.

    Plop for 10-20 minutes.

    Do LCO method and twist.

    I keep my hair in those same 10-14 twists all week, but I usually wear them up in a bun to keep them from rubbing on my clothes and coat and to protect the ends. I also baggy nightly, reapplying only oil or butter when needed.

  2. My name is Nesia Blair and my email address is current hair regimen is cowash every four days using AsIAm coconut cowash followed by apple cider vinegar rinse then use tressemme naturals followng; I also deel condition weekly.After I cowash I then air dry my hair til its 95% dry then I spray my hair with a mixture of water,conditioner, and olive oil then I put in my leave in conditioner. After that I then braid my hair straight back and moisture daily with my spray mixture and leave-in.I also sleep with a satin bonnet nightly and baggy once every four days. I also wear a wig on top of my braids so I do have toto touch and style my natural hair daily and I also braid and wear wigs because I'm doing a 6 month No Heat challenge.

Me: Why did u let so much stuff happen to me today?
God: What do u mean?
Me: Well, I woke up late,
God: Yes
Me: My car took forever to start,
God: Okay
Me: at lunch they made my sandwich wrong & I had to wait,
Me: On the way home, my phone went DEAD, just as I picked up a call.....
God: All right
Me: And to top it all off, when I got home ~I just wanted to soak my feet in my new foot massage & relax. BUT it wouldn't work!!! Nothing went right today! Why did you do that?

God: Let me see, the Death Angel was at your bed this morning & I had to send one of the other angels to battle him for your life. I let you sleep through that.
Me (humbled): OH
GOD: I didn't let you…

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

INTERLOCKING ROTATION | 2 Point vs 4 Point Rotation On Locs

Hi Loves,

I always get asked about how do I interlock my locs and the rotation I used - whether its 2-point or 4-point rotation. Some people also use the term 2-way or 4-way rotation.

In the video below, I illustrate on my own locs, the difference between the two methods. you can then compare for yourself, if there is a difference between the two by looking at my locs.

Do you interlock your locs? Share below which rotation do you use?
