bacombing is awesome. so is twist and rip.
ive had my locks for two years, no wax, minimal work.
they are far from perfect, but full of kinks and personality.
you coulddddd braid, then bacomb. in my oppinion stay away from waxs, and non-veggi based soaps. build up, is no fun. i say do a little bit of all, try different things, depending on your hair type it will be a hit and miss process.
