#1: Locking a 3-yr old
This is my middle child, Joshua, he's 3.. I'm trying to loc his hair because otherwise his hair is just way unmanageable. I started with 2 strand twists and of course they unravel near the root. What I do for that is palmroll with loc gel on the root, clip, and leave in overnight. The gel I use is the Mango and Lime locking gel, which I notice leaves flakes and actually rust the clips a little and that concerns me because I don't want rust to be on his hair. Any product suggestions or for techniques? Is there something I'm doing wrong or something I'm not doing that I should be doing?
