Locs’ 3 year Locaversary
Hey yaw!! I know I’ve been MIA again but it certainly wasn’t on purpose. I have gotten alot done since my last post, turns out I got pregnant within weeks of my last post, not to mention I had a 5 month old, a 2 year old and an 8 year old already, so if my husband and I weren’t busy already…. The pregnancy seemed pretty overwhelming for me at that time. As some of you know, I own a few businesses and at the time I found out I was pregnant, I was in the midst of starting another, one of which would be the most profitable of all….. So instead of slowing down a bit and taking it easy, of course I just put faith in God, juggled it all and God as well as my family and I made it work. I’m saying all that to say that, I’m healthy, happy and highly favored. Regarding my locs, these babies are growing like a weed!! I guess low maintenance and prenatal pill will do that!

MONTH 9 & 10
Unfortunately I am uploading this video very late I have already been loc’d for over a year now but I thought this deserved to still be shown. This video features both my 9 month loc update where I did a few temporary faux locs for color and length as well as my 10 month update where show more of the length.
In this video, I’m giving an update on my 8 month locs and I briefly discuss my water only re-twist, natural hair lightener and why I don’t condition my locs.
In this video, I discuss the progress I have had in my locs thus far.
This video features my progress thus far after being loc’d for 6 months as well as my updated retwist routine and my go-to style for this length.
In this video I give an update on my hair thus far, 5 months after starting my loc journey.(although its late, I was 5 months on 3.28.15) I also talk about how I did marley twists on my locs for our album release party.
In this video I give an update on my hair thus far, 4 months after starting my loc journey. I also talk about “splitting locs,” a technique use to slip the size of a loc in half.
In this video, I discuss my night routine for my starter locs. I have listed the specific products below.
In this video I discuss my 3 month locaversary, update as well as how I wash and re-twist my hair. I also go over the products I use which I have listed below.
In this video I discuss why I believe the best time to loc hair is in/or before the start of the winter months. I also go over my go-to style and protective/ winter styles which I do between re-twists, during cold months and how I mask the fuzzy period. Don’t expect an “ugly stage” from me hunty because theres nothing “ugly” or “dreadful” about my locs!
I get a re-twist every 4-5 weeks, which I go to the shop for, mainly because I would rather them do my shampoo. Between re-twists, I do what I call a mid-month re-twist to refresh the perimeter. I decided to do mid-month re-twists as a response to the friction of the bonnet that rubbed against the perimeter/ edges of my locs which left them with a dull appearance.
Here you can see the 2-3 rows I re-twisted during my mid-month re-twist.
Here you can see (or not) where and why I stopped after that 4th row, it’s just not necessary.

My locs are not necessarily growing down, (in length) because they are starting to thicken up and look fuller.

1 Month Locversary: In this video I’m discussing my 1st re-twist, budding locs, growth and wearing my wig as a protective style!

I love your journey so far, the locs are looking wonderful. It seem to be growing fairly quickly. How often for the retwist in the beginning & will it work twist well with very fine thin hair? Thanks Cuz, love the whole website.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! Up until now I’ve gotten them retwisted once a month, but I think im going to start with the every 2 weeks now.
