I still answered them. Below are some of the few that I’ve gotten over the past few months.
My emailed answers were a lot longer because I have a problem with giving short answers
to ANYTHING. Ha!
any products that you started at the beginning
of your journey that you STILL use?
infancy. I loved castile soap (here’s why I stopped using it) but haven’t used it on my locs
in over a year. Mind you, I am NOT a product junkie and have never been one. I stick to
products that I like but I’m still a sucker for trying new thing; but only when my old products
have run out. But I have tried several shampoos over the months. My favorite shampoo in
life will always be Peter Lamas’ Purifying Shampoo but honey, that’s an expensive shampoo
and mama be on a budget. So yeah. I’m using different products all the time.
year and a half. I miss her dearly and my locs could probably using the
professional pampering. When I started locs, I didn’t want to be dependent
on a professional so I’m glad to know that I can wash, style and maintain
my locs on my own.
(in Summer of 2011) a few loc rockers and I came up with the idea to
freeform during the summer. It was a fantastic idea and anyone who
wanted to join us and refrain from retwisting or interlocking their roots
during the summer were welcome to join us. It was a great journey and
gave many of us an appreciation for our afro roots. That said, I’ll probably
do it again this year. I did some freeforming throughout 2012 so it won’t
be so much of a “challenge” for me any more. But I really do enjoy not
retwisting my hair in the summer.
400 of them. But I have no desire in keeping them
anymore. I want larger locks but don’t want to
have to start my journey over because my locs
are 3 years old. Is there something I can do?
I currently palmroll to maintain my locs.
with a loctician on that one. While I combined my locs, I did so at a
time when they weren’t yet mature. I would imagine that combining
mature locs may be a little more of a challenge. But it certainly isn’t
impossible. I would definitely refer to a loctician regarding this question.
start locs but everyone is telling me it’s best to start
them in a salon. I’ve had natural hair for natural
hair for 7 years and feel confident that I can start
my locs on my own doing 2-strand twists. What
do you think?
you can can handle starting your own locs. The hardest part would be
making sure that you’ve parted your hair evenly -if you care about
that kind of thing. Some loc rockers feel better doing their own hair
and if by all means you trust yourself, than I say go for it. I believe
all styles and all textures of hair can be maintained outside of the salon.
Thanks for the support, y’all!
