Recently, I celebrated 2 years of embracing this loc journey. I’ve had a wonderful journey with my hair and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I’ve seen my hair grow and become stronger and healthier. In the past year, I’ve colored, had a few styles and adapted a pretty steady routine. Some of the key things I do:
- Don’t wash my hair as often as I used to.
- I oil my scalp regularly and massage my scalp
- I don’t pull my edges very often (if at all)
- I deep condition.
If I had to choose, I would say that I like when my hair is not manicured, to a degree. I mostly like to keep my front locs looking semi-manicured (meaning it doesn’t have to look like a fresh retwist), and sometimes not even retwist the rest of my locs. I have grown more accustomed to letting them hang free as opposed to rocking many styles ( I can say that I have had one professionally done, and a few I have done on my own). I feel like my locs are as carefree and unique as I am, and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Happy 2 years to me, and here’s to many, many more!
