Locks regardless of what type of locks, takes patience. This is not an instant gratification hair style. If you truly want locks, embrace the journey. It is amazing what you will learn about your hair and yourself. I am not against lock extensions at all but I am against...."I don't short hair.". Pardon me, but what length of hair were you born with??? My favorite length when I did the big chop was 2 inches. I have been locked for almost 9 years now and last Friday, I cut off about 3+ inches of locks without any hesitation. It will grow back. It is hair and it is organic. It wants to grow and I allow it to grow. My hair is still long but it was a bit much for me. The bottom line is each and every phase of the locking process is unique in its own way. You will appreciate the journey a lot more when you look back at what it took to get you to your goal. You might even learn a few new things along the way.
Be blessed and keep it real...... naturally!!!
