22 month locs

Wednesday, May 18, 2011


Sigh. I'm still worried about my weak roots. I haven't twisted my hair in over 2 months to see if my hair will thicken. I also started using castor oil to see if that will help thicken my hair. By the way I had no idea that castor oil is what us Haitians call huile maskreti...I used to pick the seeds for the grown ups when I was a kid in Haiti. Memories

Anyway. My edges are thinning. Maybe it's in my imagination but I've heard stories of locs breaking and I'm afraid that will happen to me soon if I don't do anything about it...




On a good note, a good friend of mine will sew a few of them together for me so hopefully that will ease my worries. I can't believe I'm 2 months shy away from celebrating my 2 years growing locs. Time flies... I started styling them a bit lately






J'adore the versatility of rocking locs. There's so much that you can do.

Well that's it folks. That's all I can say for now. Have a good night!

Thanks for sharing this update! I just re-started my locs, so I'll be paying extra close attention to these specific posts from here on out.

Good luck with the weak loc...I know the first time I had my locs, I pulled two or three locs completely out of my head after about two years. It was slightly traumatic, but it didn't make my hair look any different in the long run. But I wasn't consciously paying attention to the process then either, so maybe I just never noticed a difference.

It's not easy to tell from the pictures that any locs are in danger of popping off. Maybe you're fretting too much!

Seem like I did fret too much lol. My friend sewed a couple for me but said they weren't in danger. I guess I didn't realize the parts were small thus the locs grew smaller than the other...Goes to show that I'm still learning on my journey...
