My Loc Journey

I started my locs on August 15, 2009 with two-strand-twists. I always figured I'd loc my hair and about a month prior to starting, I decided it was time.

I'm self-maintaining my locs and used and Fotki albums as my research, which really gave me all the info I needed =). Luckily I'd learned a lot about my natural hair in general as a loose nappy, so I had a decent base of knowledge to start with.

My regimen is purposely very simple, please read the description of my Month 1 album if you'd like more info.

Originally I planned to maintain by palmrolling but I'm now looking into latching because I've needed to wash and rinse often to keep my scalp clean.

If you'd like to ask any questions, I'm always willing to help so please do drop me a line. Thanks for stopping by =)

Do the Right Thing!

First Side

I wasn't too picky about the parts, just mainly wanted them the same size. Boy did it swell up fast!
