your locks are gorgeous
I'm going explore combining my locs. they're thinner than I thought they would be.
I loved hair dew for my loose hair since it was super moisturizing. I would avoid it if your hair is still not fully locked since that would probably keep it from locking fully. I’m curious about build up too but if anybody is willing to experiment I have a bottle ready to dilute lol
I love, love, love your locs and That u-shape in the back. I want it!
Making it my 2020 goal to experiment with hairstyles. This is a braidout I did a few weeks ago.
Like the hair, love the skin...you’re glowing.
YOUR LOCS ARE GORGEOUS!!!
Beautiful!!! I can't wait until I can play with styles
Lol y’all are observant! I didn’t realize my hair had any type of shape thank you
Thank you so much! Yes now that they are more uniform I can finally get some loc jewelry or try something cool lol! There were so many bulges, knots, and swelling that I could get an accurate loc size during the initial stages.
that wen oil can not be replicated. I tried and failed miserably The good news is that a little goes a long way and the bottle lasts about 1.5-2 years since I’m not heavy handed.
Thank you! You will be there in no time!
Wash day vs 48 hours later. My hair is 95% dry in the first pic and completely dry in the second.
I air dried by putting my hair in a high bun and wrapping a scarf around the actual bun (not my entire head) super tight to squeeze all of the water excess. I repeat it again to change the wet scarf out and leave in on while I’m sleep. Crazy how the slightest amount of water can make a difference in volume and length.
@Cattypus1 that’s why I didn’t realize I had any type of shape. Once it’s fully dried the roots, back, and side layers shrink up.
@BillsBackerz67 your locs are everything. So beautiful.
I like your braidout. How long did you leave the braids in to set your locks?
You’re so kind thank you. They look better in pics. In person meh lol
*Insert "lies, fairy tales and fallacies" GIF here.*
I couldn’t take the gray anymore so I did a rinse this weekend. Much, much better.
ION, one of my loc inspirations cut her locs. She looks beautiful but I couldn’t help but pour out a lil leave in for her cut locs.
Thank you! I left the braids in for a day and used Motions setting foam and water to make the curls last.
Check out this youtuber! She is installing her microlocks herself. I’m amazed at how in depth she is about the process and can’t wait to see her end results!
She is doing an amazing job! My inner nerd loves all of the math she used to figure out her loc sizes and how she should part her hair.
Right! It is so precise the way she is doing it. I can’t wait for her to upload the rest of her videos. This is good for those who want Sisterlocks but don’t want to pay the price and are willing to do this process.
I would have loved this when I started my loc journey. I wanted Sisterlocks but couldn't afford the install at the time. I wanted microlocks but the loctitian talked me out of it, saying she didn't recommend getting them that small. She said that micros that small would have a high probability of breakage.
It's been almost 6 years since I loc'd. I love my hair but sometimes I wonder if I should have gone with my first mind, and do microlocks.
Another woman that started their own Microlocks she maintains her hair by going to a Sisterlock consultant.
Your hair is beautiful!!
This is amazing work!!!! And she's so precise and calculated... I love it! I subscribed to her channel. I have to see how the final install turns out. So far her hair is amazing. It almost made me want Sisterlocks again. But I am NOT about that life right now.
Her hair is beautiful also. I love her color, too. But Iono if I believe her when she said she just picked up hair and started braiding. With that grid???? On what planet, sis? If that is the truth, then she got skills!
Got the ok to stop braiding and banding, finally! But why am I sitting here sectioning my hair to twist and band the ends before this wash? It’s become a habit, I guess.
What do you guys do with your hair at night? I usually tie a scarf but I’ve been waking up lately with headaches from the scarf or my locs caught under dh’s arm. A few of my bonnets cause headaches now too. Last night I put all my hair on top of my head and used a loc sock to hold that in place. That was ok. Just curious if there is something else I can try. I will not sleep without covering my hair. DH is too wild of a sleeper to not cover my hair at all.
I get tension headaches easily. Silk pillow case. Dassit.
Just came to peek my head in
Y’all hair is looking mighty fine
Yay!!! No more braiding and banding! I know you must be relieved. I usually sleep with a neck gaiter on my locks and then I tie a scarf over that to keep it in place.
I have a smooth satin type pillowcase that I used in the past when I had SLs but I hardly use it anymore. I think when my hair gets super long I might switch back to that and just a headband or neck gaiter on my edges.
hey girl!!! We're still saving you a seat!
