It took me two days to finish this hairstyle because it was my first time trying to crochet myself and I had watched videos on faux locs but got Havana twists and the process may be similar but it wasn't the same.

First things first, there is a lot of controversy on whether to wash with shampoo or co-wash because shampoo strips the hair (Dedicated post on sulphate or no sulphate coming soon).
The theory behind ACV rinses is that it helps to alleviate an itchy scalp, exfoliates the scalp and gives the hair shine.
