I am thinking about locing my hair but i want to go the diy route as much as possible. So to all my loced friends: How did you start your locs? How big/small were your parts? Any pics? Do you maintain them yourself or do you go to a professional?

I was thinking of starting with box braids since my texture wont really hold twists for too long, but i would like to see what others are doing.
