Was spending $20 for 12oz of pure bottled #aloeveragel I mainly used it for my daily spray and it was good stuff for sure but after the second purchase I knew something needed to change. Now I buy and freeze my own aloe and get the exact same effect except I'm paying a whole lot less! Freezing it ensures zero waste since it can be kept for at least 6 months. And each leaf costs under $2 at Kroger or WM (in my area). 3 aloe leaves renders approx 500ML. 12oz = 354ML so you can do the math on those savings 😊 The only cons are the time it takes, aloe is messy, and the smell isn't my favorite. Can't do too much about the time or mess but adding a few drops of EO does the trick for the smell and that aloe scent does NOT linger after it drys anyway. I posted an instructional video on how I process the aloe a few posts back if you're interested. . . For my daily spray I use water/rose water/aloe/bit of jojoba oil (loose measurements) and have been using it pretty much since the beginning of this #loc#locjourney This is the only "product" I've used other than shampoo and diy flaxseed gel and these loc love it! Especially since I'm not using any conditioners for the first time in my life 😩😩😩 I know it's not for everyone but I thought I'd share something that for sure has worked for me and a way to save some $$$ too 😊 I hope it helps someone #diyaloeveragel Happy growing #locfamily . . #loc#locs #embracethefrizz #semifreeform #semifreeformlocs #babylocs #locjourneybegins #back2roots #backtoyourroots #locs #newlocs #curlylocs #locgoddess #twostrandstarterlocs #starterlocs #protectivestyle #locjourney #twists #locupdate #nat#naturalhaircommunity #longlocs #naturalhairdaily #longnaturalhair #teamnatural #naturalhaircommunity

Set aside goals for yourself.... then go tackle them!!! I’m trying to look success directly in the face!!! 👊🏾 Side note📝: My locs always look so much shorter when I don’t retwist. The shrinkage is real. But Idk 😐 😂 I’m still not retwisting. . . . . . . . . #thicklocs #locs #conscious #locjourney #naturalhair #naturalhairjourney  #PrettyHippieLocs #growth #vib#vibes #manifest #womenwithlocs #menwithlocs #2strandtwistlocs #love #peace #light #vibes #lockings #locqueens #followmyjourney #naturalhairdaily #semifreeform #retwist #thelocdcouple #locdin #iamlocd #loclivin #starterlocheadz #youtubers

👩🏿‍🌾✨Day 20! Made it!😅Today was challenging! No internet in the morning and tired as heck. Putting it off made it harder and almost resulted in missing a day!! Lesson: get it in early and get it done first! Pay yourself precious self care enjoyment time FIRST! 'Cause sometimes tomorrow does not come.👩🏿‍🌾✨🍉🥒🍍🥗🌱🐛🦋🙌🏾🙌🏾🙌🏾 #fitnessathome #livingfoods #fitmoms #vegan #semifreeform #ital

7 wks 🔒"Trust the process" Easier said than done. Most days I wonder if my locs will turn out the way I envisioned them. Did I make them too big or too small? I know they're still babies and have a lot of maturing to do but I get anxious. I know I'm can't be the only one....😫 . . . . #locs #locqueen #blackgirlswithlocs #queenswithlocs #starterlocjourney #locstyles #semifreeform #freeformlocs #starterlocs #two#twostrandtwistlocs #twostrandtwist #womenwithlocs #babylocs #locjourney #loctwist #loclove #dreads #locmaintance #loclife #locdlife #loclivin #locsanddreads #teamlocs #locnation #thelocdroom #locqueensrock #lovelightlocs
