The update is, latching is so over, for now. Seriously, I am obviously doing it wrong. I ended up with wholes at the roots. You know gaps where I was pushing the loc through, not cute honey.
So I had to head on down to Sephora's (look that's my home away from home) and pick up some loc butter by Carol's Daughter to smooth these fly-aways down, and look presentable. I don't mind kinkiness showing, I'm just vain and meticulous when it comes to my hair. So, for now, back to product.
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
