Locing my hair
It was roughly 2.5 years ago that my Godmother asked me to stop cutting my hair. I’ve been rocking my natural hair for around six years now. I LOVED my loose natural hair however it required patience and time that I was no longer willing to give. I didn’t want to perm my hair straight and cutting wasn’t an option. As a result, I started searching for other alternatives. I decided the best fit for me was microlocs.
Right?? I am actually locing my hair.
On 3/19/16… I started my loc journey. I went to a loctician who put my hair into 2 strand twists…about 310-ish. I am now 9 months & 2 weeks into my journey. I have loved watching the transitions in my hair. I am being patient but can’t lie….I am ready for my hair to be loc’d so I can truly wash and go. My hair is extremely soft and curly. I’m imagining my hair will not be fully loc’d until 1.5 years or so.
Locing my hair was a *huge* decision but one that I feel peace and happiness with… I love my hair! Below is a picture of my loose natural hair before the twists were placed.
