Ponytails and Two-Strand Twists with a Heart (I guess...)

My very first hairstyle with a heart :)

This style was done on BG "M" about a month ago (I know, I know...don't judge me).  The summer break was coming to an end and her hair was doing some serious shedding (this could have been from all the swimming).  So I wanted to give her a quick and simple style along with a good protein deep conditioning treatment.  I used the Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Replenishing Pak (Deep Penetrating Conditioner) and must say I was definitely pleased.  I left this deep conditioner in her hair about 45 minutes and it took very well to her hair. The hair was soft, moisturized, manageable and in better condition overall. The shedding was also reduced drastically.

**BG "S" Loc Journey: 2nd Loc Set w/ Comb Coils**

After doing additional research I decided to "do-away" with the first set of starter locs (two-strand twists) and decided to start over with comb coils.  Why?  Well, since I will be maintaining BG "S" locs, I thought this would be the best method.  Comb Coils usually turn out with uniform width and length,  two-strand twists on the other hand may form to be different sizes and it takes a little longer for the two-strand twists pattern to go away, in some cases you have to cut the pattern off from the ends once the hair grows out.

After only 2.5 weeks her two-strand twist were already beginning to "loc" together.  Before I decided to take this new loc journey, I made the mistake of applying a spray leave-in conditioner after washing the hair --a big NO NO for the beginning stages of loc'ing.  Needless to say it worked in my favor because the take down process was a breeze since the leave-in aided in detangling the hair.

As I removed a twist, I simply replaced it with a comb coil after detangling that section, some sections were broken down into smaller sections. This was my very first attempt at comb coils and I am very pleased with the outcome.

I learned how to do Comb Coils by watching a video by CHVC

This is a pic of the process...

Products Used:
Rat-tail comb and Angle comb

Spray Bottle (Distilled Water & Rosemary EO)
Single Prong Clips
Taliah Waajid Lock It Up-Tight Hold (Review to Come)
