So... I'm tired of detangling my hair.

I'm tired of twist outs. Especially failed twist outs.

I'm considering getting locs. And I suppose this is my very first starting place for information, next to Google and Youtube.

I'm afraid this may sound rude, but I just want to be bluntly honest: Are locs perfect for lazy people? I love the feeling I have when I wear braids and I can just get up and go with very little maintenance. But braids are expensive. I'm thinking locs are a cheaper alternative?

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
One of the main reasons I am considering locs is because I'm thinking they are easier to manage- and they just look cool and fit my personality

I really like this girls locs and I would love to have something like this. I'm not sure where to start or what "sister locs" or "braid locs" or "free form locs" are, but I'm seriously considering just going to a local salon and getting starter locs. I'm assuming that's something all beginners get?
