I noticed you combined in a 2 pt pattern, why not a 4 pt pattern? Would it have been too tight?

@Anon: I didn't have enough new growth to do a complete 4 pt. rotation. I wasn't aiming to do a 2pt. pattern, but just to combine my locs in general first.

Oh I see, thanks for the response, when i combine i usually do a full 4 pt rotation. Good luck on this new journey!

dewdrop, you are such an inspiration! i am with you on the reducing retightening time. what a chore? i used to wonder if i was the only one that thinks it is insane to spend an enormous amount of money and time maintaining NATURAL hair. since i moved to germany i've had to stop trimming the strands because it made my sessions twice as long. nein danke. combining locks, not a bad idea after all. i look forward to your new locs. you're right...if it ain't fun, change it.

I'm so glad that you feel me on this one. It's good to know that we are not alone on this journey.
