Why I Started Locs and Answers to Questions I’ve Received Lately

I had just taken out my box braids

so it was wash day.

And it was Sunday— so that was it

For my plans for the day.

By the time I was done

With my routine

I didn’t want to air dry it,

Because it wouldn’t be dry before bed;

So I used my diffuser.

And. I was just Fed Up.

My curls didn’t turn out

The way I wanted.

And I was just Sick of

Trying to figure the exact

Amount of product

And in what sequence

In order for my curls to come out juust Right.

So I said ya know what,

I don’t wanna do anything

With my hair anymore.

I’m going to loc it.

Not too long after that did I get starter locs /

comb coils.

After two weeks I did freak out

Like I want to comb them out—

My hair won’t loc right.

I talked to a few loc queens

And they reassured me.

Appreciate them!

Plus two weeks

is always when

I’m in the mood

For a hair change,

So it was a typical

#mood to me to change, but

then I bounced back and

I haven’t looked back

Or missed my curls at all

Since then.

I’m almost four months loc’ing in

And I’m committed to the journey,

Enjoying every stage.

Here are some short and sweet answers to a few questions I’ve received lately…

1- I started with comb coils

2- I waited one month for my first wash/ re-twist

3- My loctician uses the palm rolling method

4- Yes you can comb locs out, and here are two lovelies who have: @curlsofpoetry & @nessashani

5- Not sure the color of my hair- It was dyed red/orange last year and I just let it fade grow out and I’ve used temp dye before and so now it’s brown and blonde

6- I’m really enjoying this #locjourney‼️ — Day by day I feel more Me and I understand why people with locs say they feel more Free #locdnotbound

7- Rose water mixed with vitamin e, tea tree oil and peppermint spray

8- I have 97 #babylocs almost 4 months
