My First Retie – Starter Locs

Welcome to the blog!

I did my first retie!

It took 5 days on and off. I was more conscious about the front since it was my first time. I knew I wanted to do 4 point rotations so I watched some videos and got to it.

What I Used

  • A crochet needle (Update: I use a loc tool now)
  • Spray bottle with water
  • Coconut oil (Update: I use grape seed oil)
  • Jamaican Black Castor oil

I stayed in the mirror for the front and by the time I got to the back I was watching tv and chilling. I finished 1 am on a Saturday and I felt so proud of myself. After I finished I moisturized my hair and that’s it.

Here are before pics of the back!

And after.

I definitely have some learning to do but I will get better the more I do it. Do you retighten your hair?
