Growing locks long

I became tired of constantly thinking of what to do with my hair and tried every hairstyle in the book.

Wanted to stand out on my own

The journey started with cutting off and swearing off perms, letting my natural hair grow out and wearing braids. April/2007 was the approximate date and I have been locked up ever since.

The journey was sometimes not that fun but hats and scarves became my friends...at first. Then I saw my patience grow with people, my interest on how things work increase and people constantly stared at the top of my head...instead of the 'girls' below my neckline.

I love them...I will never change my natural hair

However, I'll cut them to a nice comfortable length and do everything imaginable with them. I also have created hair accessories for them, that not only takes the place of never finding hair accessories in the local store, but is also a great stress reliever.

Three months later, hats and scarves became a thing of the past. Instead of covering them up, I let them swing free and beautiful. I love my 'Lovely Locs!'

Starting length for locs...
by: Natasha - MyDreadlocks.com Admin

At least 2" of hair could do it, regardless of the method to start. However many locticians would prefer about 6" to work with.

the best decision i made about my hair
by: shawalli

Off and on for about 14 years, I've been braiding my hair by adding extnsions. After awhile I got tired of sitting in a chair for 8 or 9 hours to get my hair braided. So on February 14 ,2011 I decided to loc my hair. I'll never go back or change my mind. I love my hair like this. Whoever doesn't like it, they'll just have to deal with it.
