My Locs First Birthday!




Its my locs first birthday! I never thought I would ever be locked! I loves seeing dread heads including my son! I just needed non-traditional locs for a non-traditional woman. I saw small locs for the first time in my life, a year and two months ago. Maybe before that, I was not paying attention to locs. Living in a city, where locs are abundant, I `am not sure why I did not have a small locs sighting.

When I first locked, my co-workers could not believe their eyes! I never wore one particular hairstyle for more than two weeks. I have braided, flat twist, dyed, weaved, french rolled, finger waved, and everything else you can do to hair! One co-worker said " No! Not the Diva! " My co-workers made a bet that I would not last three months! Here I`am! Locked for one year!


There were times that I was not happy with my locs. I had slippage, unravelling, and bunching issues! I almost took my locs down twice. The last time, my family at lovinlocs came to my rescue! Thank God, I came to my senses. I would have been very disappointed sistah! My dreadlocks journey has humbled me. It has made me develop patience. In this instant gratification world, I have literally slowed down to smell the roses!

Even though I do not agree with the cult like practices of sisterlocks, I do have to give them credit for my decision to lock. If it were not for those small locks, I would probably still be addicted to the creamy white crack!

Truly love my locs! I would not trade my journey for my locs for nothing in the world!

Happy locvesary!. You've come a long way. I believe your locs will really take off in your 2nd year. IA give credit where it is due. I too am thankful to sls for bringing these here tiny locs to my attention although I'm not in favour certain of their practices.

Congratulations! Because of your generosity, I was able to cross over that hump that delayed my transition to the locked side. I just celebrated 3 months braidlocked on the 23rd of Nov, heading toward month 4 in just a few weeks.

IA with you and Anethia-ofo on giving credit where it is do but I don't get into dogma of any kind. It only serves to restrict freedom. We've already spent way too long in bondage.

Congrats and again thank you so much for what you do. I'm eternally grateful.

Thanks for all the info! I am a DIYer too, thanks to you! I saw your video on interlocking on youtube and decided I didn't need to spend $450 to get SLs installed!

Much love to you!
