Hello Month 5 & Retwist No. 5

Hello Month 5 & Retwist No. 5

I’m still in awe that I’m actually locing my hair, never mind that it’s already been 5 months since my little starter locs were installed. This new loc journey is by far the easiest one yet when compared to learning to care for my relaxed hair and then my natural hair, but it is testing my patience in ways my relaxed hair journey and natural hair journey did not. This time around, the struggling isn’t doubting whether I can do it, or trying to find a whole lineup of products or styles, it’s simply having the patience to watch my...

I may be the only one flabbergasted by this but y’all have to understand that I’ve thought about locing my hair for years, and then 3 months just up and flies by! I totally missed capturing my 2-month mark and kinda-sorta captured my1 month “starterlocaversary” on Instagram. I was painfully aware of the days and weeks right after I had my starter locs installed, and then the days blurred together and 3 months snuck up and swept by. To be...

Retwist No. 3

I was trying to hold out until I’d hit week 5 at least to retwist my hair, but my hair had other ideas. My hair has been growing like a weed and started matting at the roots. I was completely over having to finger-combing my roots to keep my hair from matting so I decided to wash and retwist at week 3. 01. Pre-Cleanse & Shampoo I started off my wash day by spraying my hair with Dr. Locs Pre-Cleanse for a deeper clean to get rid of any buildup. I’ve been pretty good at not overloading my hair with...
