Reader Dreadlocks Styles: My Loc Journey From Start To Current
Just starting out with new dreads
I started my dreads in 2009. A month after they were started by my left-handed loctician (hence the reason my locs are twisted counter clockwise) I found out I was 5 weeks pregnant. Let's just say my son had my dreads growing like wildfire.
Dreads were started with what looked like black gel to me. Then I started using Murray's Black Beeswax.
It was just after my locs hit their one year anniversary that I really started to research hair care because as I was looking up loc styles loc care came along with it.
Thats when I learned about the damage black gel does and the build up beeswax causes.
After I gave birth to my son, my hair follicles became dormant again causing my hairline to thin and break off because they were so weak.
I have decided to use all natural products now like shea butter along with Jamaica Mango & Lime Loc Grow to retwist. I have the whole line of the Jamaican Mango & Lime and this is where I am today!
