i don’t care
call me intelligent

that i made you smile
tell me i have something to offer"
rhythmicgrowth asked: hey! Just came across your blog and def going to follow. I love your loc! I'm 3months into my first set and you are inspiration. How long have you been loc'd and just curious how many locs you have. I'm trying to get an idea of the number area of locs that would create the loc thickness I want. Thank you, love, and keep posting!
Thanks so much for the lovely message. My hair has been loc’d for a little over seven years. I have very thick, course hair, and a tighter curl pattern, so my stylist chose to begin my set with wider parts to create “pencil width” locs. I would recommend having a professional loctitian look at your locs, so that they are able to help you better understand how your thickness and texture will affect your locs as they mature. I have always had my hair maintained by a professional stylist using organic shea butter, which has contributed to the health of my locs. More than thickess, you want to ensure that your locs are clean and healthy and everything else will fall into place. You have to begin your loc journey with a good foundation. I am excited that you have chosen to loc your hair…although it is a long and sometimes arduous process, the results can be very rewarding. Please keep me updated!
