Two Years Loced Up
Time flies! I can remember when Silver-Straw was talking about starting locs and now he has passed his two year anniversary! Read about his journey here: Journey to Loc and Happy Nattyversary!
Two year anniversary, how do you feel about your hair?
I feel great about it! Still can't believe I didn't start the journey earlier.
What is your current hair care routine? Cleansing, re-twisting, etc. Has anything changed?
I think I've become more lazy :-) I haven't cleansed in a while and I only retwist/intertwine when it's necessary. But I still wash once a week, and moisturize with my daily live-in spray that now only consists of a natural oil and water.
Have you bumped into any hurdles along the way, if so what?
I dry and itchy scalp whenever I've forgot or not been able to use my daily spray. And that re-twisting your own locs is a pain in the ass and shoulder, so I only intertwine now.
Definitely! I really feel like my true self on the outside as within.
Which kind of feedback have you been receiving now that your hair is locked?
Well I've had them for a while now, so those that know me have already put in their 2 cents. So I don't really get feedback nowadays :-(
What is your loc goal? Has it changed?
Nah, it's the same goal; to grow them long enough so that I can't try different undo styles.
Now that you have some length have you tried any styles?
I've only tried one style thus far, and that's the one in the picture.
I think so, but I don't think it directly has to do with me just sporting locs, but more about the way I carry myself as my appearance reflects what's under the hair.
Where do you find your loc inspiration?
Everywhere! Now that I have locs I seem to see them everywhere, on my daily commute and in the media. So the inspiration is all around me.
