6 months today!! Half a year on this #locjourney down 😄 Celebrated with an herbal rinse. I've been using the herbal water I posted about in my daily spray for a week now (few posts back) and my babies have been super soft and moisturized. Dry indoor heat plus the cold weather has been drying them out so I figured I'd try the rinse since it was wash day anyway and maaaaan! Saturating them vs a quick mist has them feeling SO goooood! I'll be adding this to the routine biweekly while its cold out. Not only were the results great, the process was very soothing with aromatherapy benefits. Something I very much needed. Last official retwist was at the end of November, done 3 so far, and I'm thinking about doing one again soon. I don't care about neat parts or anything but the roots could use a little attention...maybe lol 😅 . . One of the best things about this journey is the realization that #loc#locs are possible with minimal guidance and products. Even when it seems like nothing is happening, having patience and doing what's best for YOUR hair WILL eventually pay off. My routine is very simple. Wash every 3-5 days with my favorite #dollylocks Nag Champa shampoo, separate after washing and palmroll as needed (mainly the front & not with every wash), spray daily with water (or herbal water)/distilled rose water/fresh aloe/jojoba oil. When I've retwisted I've palmrolled with a #diyflaxseedgel I posted near the beginning of the journey. Cover at night and keep styling to a minimum. That's it. . . I love that this journey has been simple and 100% organic with many of the products being made in my own kitchen. Every aspect about this journey has been so authentic and I hope this serves to motivate anyone either thinking about starting the journey or trying a simpler routine. . . #sta#starterlocs #locs #6monthslocd #locfamily#embracethefrizz #hairantenna #thankthecreator #semifreeform #semifreeformlocs #blackgirlmagic #babylocs #goddesslocs #herbaltearinse #backtoyourroots #newlocs #curlylocs #locgoddess #twostrandstarterlocs #starterlocs #protectivestyle #messylocs #locupdate #naturalhaircommunity #teenagelocs #longnaturalhair #teamnatural  #naturalhairstyles #teamnaturalhair

Trust your process and decorate it! 📷 @candyloveslocs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ・・・⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Fun look for today 😊 spiced up with some #diyjewelry⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I've found that cornrowing or braiding my hair down before bed tames the frizzies a bit and gives them a nice loose wave that lasts all day (swipe to see better). I've always liked having options with my hair and so glad I still have them with #locs Limited options was one of the main reasons I didn't give them a chance...silly SILLY me! I'm so glad I was open minded enough to start the journey because knowing what I do now, I would've started them a LONG time ago! How many times have I said that 😅 Just another one of the many lesson that having locs teaches, to keep an open mind about things you don't know or understand ❤ I don't plan to over style them since I'm so early on the #loc#locjourney but man have I got so many ideas already 😁 Happy growing #locfamily .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #embracethefrizz #hairantenna #thankthecreator #semifreeform #semifreeformlocs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #babylocs #sta#starterlocss #backtoyourroots #newlocs #curlylocs #locgoddess #twostrandstarterlocs #starterlocs #twists #messylocs #locupdate #naturalhaircommunity #longlocs #teenagelocs⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #naturalhairdaily #longnaturalhair #teamnatural #naturalhairstyles #teamnaturalhair #loclove #locjourney
