have you ever backcombed your own hair? how did that work for you? (when i say "your own" i mean without the help of a friend). i went to a locktician to get my hair locked but no matter how much maintenence that i did to it, it always unwravelled after a week. then i just kind of ran out of money, so i'm not doing that anymore. i wore a fro for a year until my hair grew a little longer, and now i feel like i should try again. but i don't have any friends or anything that know how, and i'm a (soon-to-be) poor college student, so i want to do it on my own. any advice?
