Month 3 Loc Update


I totally forgot it was time for my retwist. I ended up retwisting  my Locs close to week 6. I decided for now, that I will retwist every 4 weeks.

I learned a lot about my hair this month. I found out that I have to keep my Starter Locs separated; otherwise I will have to incorporate Loc popping. 

Loc popping is ... http://curlynugrowth.com/prevent-locs-from-tangling/  that's right check out the link! I'm a newbie and this is where I found my info on separating my locs. πŸ’•


Here's a few pics from Month 3

Month 2 Loc Journey Update

I thought I posted a Month 2 update, but apparently not! Month 2 was a chill month. I'm starting this journey off differently. I am no longer trying to come up with the next style. I don't want to cause any tension to my starter locs. 


I finally experienced frizz and I embraced it. I actually like the frizz! In my loose natural hair days; you would not hear me say this too often lol. I would manipulate the frizz for a defined twist or braid out. 

Here's a few pics from Month 2

WORKING OUT?



I don't feel like working out!

It feels forced when I try!

Why? πŸ˜‚ 

I know the benefits of exercising. I also know it's all in my mind. I have been very busy working and trying to meet other goals that I have neglected the importance of incorporating exercising back into my lifestyle. 


Facts! 

OK, there are things that we can do to jump start a fit lifestyle.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE BEEN DOING LATELY; (BABY STEPS LOL)

I have been working out when I feel like it.  Sometimes it's once or twice a week. However, I do have children and they keep me pretty active. I have incorporated more vegetables into my meals and  just by doing that I have seen great results and I have way more energy!


I will end this blog with a flashback of my fit lifestyle as a reminder to get back to what's important!



                      Do you work out?

Faux Locs inspired me to stop putting off my Loc journey


Faux Locs inspired me to stop putting off my loc journey. I could keep installing faux Locs, but I can't keep applying that type of tension on my hair and definitely not on my edges. After taking them out it still took a few months to start my loc journey. 

This length could take years

Hair used to install my faux locs


Here's the video installing my faux locs: 

In my early YouTube years, no style would  last more than 4 weeks.  I enjoyed trying different styles. If you are considering Locs try faux locs. Crochet  styles worked great for me. I braid my foundation the night before and I install the hair the next day. 

Have you tried Faux locs? 

I started my loc journey 10/4/2017 Take a look:
