MONTH 5 LOC JOURNEY

My locs turned 5 months old! 

Yep, 5 months of not combing my natural hair. I have no complaints.  I don't give much thought to my hair. I want to keep it that way. 

Low manipulation is key. I do favor putting my hair in a side ponytail. This can't be good if I do this too often. When I'm home I just let my hair be free with no hair bands. 

This month I did purchase a few oils per my previous blog post. 

The BB Jamaican Black Castor Oil is my favorite. I love castor oil.   I also purchased the wild growth oil which  can be found at most local beauty supply stores. Extra virgin olive oil is still on my fave list. I love it because it's light weight. 


I haven't dealt with product build-up. I only use shampoo on my hair. At this point of my journey I feel conditioner would not be wise. I can see myself half washing it out on a lazy wash day. I will continue to  stray away from it at the moment. 

I'm only 5 months into my loc journey and I don't feel that it would be beneficial. If I did I would coat my hair with a light conditioner. I didn't do a retwist this month. I have plans for month 6 so I decided to skip it.  In the picture below you can see that I need a retwist, but  it still looks nice! 

So yep, month 6 I will definitely retwist my hair and of course I will have footage.

Tamar Braxton Big Chop

Sooooooo Tamar Braxton cut off all her hair ...




I LOVE IT! 


(Pictures from @Tamarbraxton Instagram)

She looks refreshing! She looks beautiful! She looks confident

(More pics )

Nothing wrong with wearing wigs, but I'm sure Tamar  feels liberated to walk around feeling free. You know when you've been wearing that wig all day and can't wait to hang it back up :) I imagine that's how she feels!  

I bet Vince ... Never mind I'm minding my own business on this one lol.


You look good Tamar!

Bronner Bros Jamaican Black Castor Oil Infused with Rosemary

Sooooooooooooo I started my loc journey using extra virgin olive oil. When I started my natural hair journey back in 2009 Castor oil was my staple. I went to Walmart looking for the Wild growth oil, but my store does not carry that product. I want to thicken up my edges and keep them healthy and strong. 

I was determined to leave with a oil. This one caught my eye and I made the purchase. The cost was $6.97. Not too bad! I usually purchase Castor oil in a small jar or plastic container so it felt weird purchasing it as a spritzer.


 


 


OK so Day 1 thoughts ... 

I'm loving it! It's not messy at all. I spritz my scalp all over and it wasn't sticky. I think this will be a staple. It's also good for your skin! 

Spritzing oil on your skin is so convenient and controlled. 

Will I stop using extra virgin olive oil ? No 

I love both! 

Water and Extra Virgin Olive Oil will be used for my retwist. 

Have you tried this product
