    Ok bro. 2years is way more than enough to start locks, your hair is already long enough, what you need to do is find a woman who will lock your hair for you. Unless you want free form locks like J Cole, which then you'll just have to keep letting it grow.

    Also if you're using any type of shampoo/conditioner and with sulfate, stop. Sulfate strips your hair if natural oils which will thin out your hair. Also makes it harder for your hair to lock up naturally.

    If I were you. I'd do the following.
    >make an appointment with a hair lady to start your locks
    Manually locking them is much easier than freeforms since the lady can use all kinds of methods to lock your hair in place until it naturally locks

    Or if you want free forms
    >pick out your hair out while wet
    >completely dry it
    >sponge your hair with that sponge with the holes until you have good twists
    >use your hands to twist the twists harder
    >shower with a shower cap for 2 weeks

    And take the dingle berries out of your hair please.

    I had free form locks for 5 years, started mine about a year in. They always look awkward at first. But if you start them right and keep up with them then they don't look as bad while they are growing

        No problem. Just an FYI some people charge up to 200 for a new customer/lock starting, so just be ready to pay quite a bit. It's worth it though

            Are you not picking it out? Sleeping, hoods, hats press your hair down tightly. If you haven't cut it, then it should be the same length as the top if you pick it out

              That's what im saying its very weird. The bottom part of the back is the same length but the upper part of the back isn't even after picking its quite literally just flat. It's literally disgusting

                Idk. Guess that's just how your hair grows doesn't look that bad though and locks will make any length differences disappear

    looks good dude i got my hair locked when it was way shorter than yours and it was pretty ugly for a while, but you can definitely start. like the other anon said it is kinda a pretty penny, but telling people you have an expensive hair style is pretty sick

    twisting your locks i hear makes your hair heavier and pulls the follicles so it grows faster, so just hurry up and get your shit locked friend

    There really aren't any. You can just do braids with no ends and leave it in for as long as you can bare to.
    >2 years
    >2 FUCKING YEARS
    >It's hardly growing
    You're doing something very wrong. In one year my hair is twice that length unstretched and around mouth stretched. I haven't really been doing the most optimal routine either. Basically just meeking, two-strand twists or braids every month, and biotin. Do you sleep in a bonnet (when it's out like you have it) or du-rag (for more compact styles like braids)? How often do you have it in a protective style? What kind of products (shampoo and conditioner in particular) are you using?

      I do none of those things. I used to wash my hair with a anti dandruff shampoo but someone told me it was bad for hair, so i stopped

    Take supplements that make your hair grow faster such as biotin, 12,000IU D3 per dad, and 2 tablespoons of cod liver oil per day. Probably some other ones too google it.

    You clearly haven't done anything to take care of your hair.

    Detangle it, shampoo, condition, rinse, deep condition and then figure out what you wanna do.
