Focus on Loc Shrinkage
I also braided my hair up one night to get the wavy look. I initially felt the tension on my roots from the braids so I literally had to purposely re-braid my locs slowly and loosely. Any type of tight ponytails or braided loc styling that is pulled even moderately tight can put stress on the locs. I may need to even re-think wet sets.
My focus has been no stress on my tresses. I have not have any problems yet, but I have not had enough length to stretch my imagination with styling my locs. So let me continue to stay conservative with styling for at least another six months, then I can try more fancy options with no tension.
