Things people do not tell you:
1. When you are transitioning
For some hair, there is no amount of gel in the world that would create tiny little gorgeous curls like these. I am telling you, it is not about technique, it is about ability of your hair to do it or not. You may be better off waiting for a few months and doing a cute braid out like this.
2. When you are a veteran
You begin to wonder about locs even if you never previously considered them an option. It will happen.....just wait!
3. When you are a blogger
Try saying thank you every single time you receive a compliment. I mean every single time. I mean, do not ever get used to people being nice to you, assume it is normal and not thank them for being kind. There is a very selfish reason for this because it is a lovely antidote to the odd bit of negativity that you will receive because if you are doing a good job, you will have to say thank you many more times than you will have to frown.
