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:

Dreadlock Journey: Updo Takedown

I took down my previous updo as planned and I’m loving the outcome. I can see the growth already.

Dreadlock Journey: 2 Month Update

Today marks my second month of being loc’d up. I had my hair retwisted and styled on July 18th before I went on vacation to Washington, D.C. (where I had a blast, by the way). I wanted my hair up and away from my face because I knew it’d be hot and we’d be doing a lot of walking.

This is before my retwist, after I took down my previous updo.

This is after my retwist. I’ll probably take this down at the end of the week. Like I stated before, I just wanted it up and away from my face for my vacation.
