ONE MONTH BABY LOCS!



It took me three weeks to complete my baby locs. Since I do not have SISTERLOCKS! I will not be counting how many locs I have! I do know I have more locs than I had when I was sisterlocked. This was not done intentionally. As I started parting my hair in the front, I have large and medium locs. Towards the back, they are small and medium.

 
Not perfect parts. That`s OK with me!
   
I did not seal my ends like my SisterLock Consultant did five years ago. I had enough length to leave the ends open. My hair is as unruly as it were the first time I locked. My hair is not neat. It likes to slip and slide. Hair strains like to come out of the patterned loc as they did five years ago! The only difference is that I can take care of my own hair. When my locs slip, I can re-tighten. If a loc comes out of pattern, I`am equipped to place back in to pattern.

 My hair loves to be locked! My scalp is abundant with sebum. My hair is never dry. I do not have to worry about placing anything on it. My new growth is salt and pepper. More salt than pepper. I`am tired of chasing gray. I may just let it be! We shall see!
 
Gray scalp.


God is so good! I have learned so much during my first loc journey! I wear my locs with pride, gray and all!

" All the days of the vow of his separation there shall be no razor come upon his head: until the days br fulfilled, in the which he separateth himself unto the LORD, he shall be holy, and shall let the locks of the hair of his head grow.
                                                   Book of Numbers 6:5 KJV

I love your hair. I sometimes wish that I started my journey at a shorter length to get the full effect but I am sure this wont be my one and only loc journey.

Thank you Cheleski! During those three weeks I sported my wigs! I wear my own hair more than I wear my wigs.
What I learned is my textured hair is mine. What works for me works for me!You can not place everyone's hair or locs in the same box!

Installing locs yourself can be very empowering. I'm sure they will turn out beautiful.
