My locks were looking bad for 6 months so...i sat in front of the mirror, took up my chinese double sided tooth comb, picked out a lock and started to re-backcomb. I rubbed the tip in between my finger and thumb, ripped it apart, folded it in half then pushed it through the middle of the lock and palm rolled the hell out of it. Results? It looked so much better without my curly ends that i did every lock on the left side of my head until 3am in the morning. I slept then woke up at 1pm to continue.
