I know it's because I'm in my feelings, cause this week was like but I kinda wanna take my locs down and wait until my hair gets longer, then put them back in. My face looks huge, my hair length is not complimentary, and I'm tired of wearing headband, wraps and stuff. Maybe I should put a style over them.
I do flat twist-outs and I mainly use water or my tea sprays. Mousse only gave me an itchy scalp that I could tell, but maybe I wasn't using a good mousse hahaI'm mad late but my locks turned 4 years old last month. I didn't really do anything special to celebrate. Thought about doing two strand twists that I could convert to a twist out but after thinking about execution after wash day I said nah...
I do wanna do it one day though. And it's time for some new color for spring as well.
I wanted to ask...those of you who do twists and twist outs, do you use some type of setting lotion/mousse for definition and hold or just plain water/twisting on damp hair?
Also decided to not interloc from ends to roots. I'm just gonna go with the flow. If I feel like converting the braids to twists, that's fine but if I don't, that's fine too. In a year or so, if I don't like them I'll just take them down and redo them.Starting on my retie in bits and pieces. I've been using my fingers to retie because I can't put them down and lose them. Of course that means it's not as snug lol.
Hey y’all. I have been demoted to lurk status. A medical treatment has caused me to lose my hair. Never fear, it will grow back. I cut my locs off when they were hanging by a thread. I saved them so maybe I’ll reattach them once my hair grows back. Anyway, I still love to see locs and all the progress y’all are making so keep the pics coming.
I'm still existing on this mortal plane lol Do you think it could be the air or water that's causing the dryness?How is everyone doing? It's been a while since I've checked in. I'm dealing with some serious dryness lately, I don't know why. I'm going to try to do a DC this weekend.

The lab work sounds like a good idea. Sometimes we're deficient in minerals we don't even think about lol.I'm not sure. It may be something that my loctitian uses. I know that I had some breakage a while back but I think it may have came from the rubber bands that she used for the styles. I'm thinking about getting some lab work done. A fitness coach suggested that I should get this done. I'm almost 50 now so we need to see if I'm having any vitamin deficiencies or possibly hormones (menopause,?)
Thank you so much! I love them too. I was just telling one of my friends on Facebook the other day that I think I have finally reached the "can't tell me ish" phase of lock lengthI love your locs!
It looks good! I have yet to try these. How long did this style last for you?I haven’t checked in in a while. I had pipe cleaner curls last month. Here’s a pic of me with a Facebook friend at an event:

Hey y’all I haven’t posted in a minute but I’ve been paying attention to some beautiful locs. Here are a couple of pics just to show you where I’ve been and where I am on this journey. First pic is one of the last pics right before I cut them off in April 2022. I was 3 & 1/2 years loced:View attachment 484407
