My Locs Are Two Years Old Today!!

I’ve been loc’d up for 2 years with no regrets. I don’t miss my loose natural hair at all. i wish I would have been brave enough to loc my hair sooner. I receive a lot of compliments on my hair. Most people can’t tell that my hair is actually loc’d, I think it’s due to my texture. My hair is kind of fuzzy and I don’t think it’ll ever change but it makes them unique so I don’t mind it much.

To the left are pictures from day 1 and to the right are pictures from year 2.

Two year milestone: The front of my hair is finally long enough to put into a ponytail.



I am looking forward for many more years to come!

Loc Journey | First Attempt at Loc Petals

This weekend I tried my hand at doing Loc Petals. I am a year and a half into my loc journey. For the past 6 months I’ve been doing my locs myself and this is the first time I tried to do a style besides two strand  twists. Below are the results.





1 Year Loc’d Up

I’ve been heavily medicated all last week so I’m late posting this. May 24th marked 1 year of me being loc’d. I love it to death. I do not regret doing it at all.

The first picture was taken on day 1 of my journey and the second was taken a year later. It’s hard to see any growth because I had my head tilted back on the first picture but you can certainly see the difference in texture.

I decided to have it styled in a mohawk this time around.

First Wash & Retwist on My Own Locs

Since I started my loc journey 4-1/2 months I was getting them professionally retwisted and styled. Due to the government shutdown I was forced to wash and retwist my locs on my own. I’m a contractor with the government and don’t need to spend money unnecessarily until I’m back at work.

Here is how I did it. First, I applied an ACV wash to cleanse my scalp. Then I washed with Dr. Bronner’s Tea Tree Soap (I diluted it with half water). Finally, I applied Nature’s Blessings on the scalp and retwisted with ORS Smooth and Hold Pudding.

Here are the results:
