My Loc Journey: 1 Month Update

a Milestone Worth Celebrating

I don’t know about you but I am simply just ecstatic. As you know I embarked on my loc journey about a month a go now. First, going into this again I knew that it would be a bit tough to get into the swing of things again. I had my doubts but my focus was to make it to a month. That was my short term goal that I started with, and yes I started small. I didn’t want to rush anything or discourage myself in anyway.

Throughout this experience within a month I have learned a great deal on what works for me.

Retwist

I am particularly annoyed by the way my hair tends to look matted. So I have made it a point to retwist my hair every 3-4 weeks tops. This would allow for new growth to grow and be retwisted with my existing locs. It has proven useful for me so far.

Retwist 1 month

My occasional obssessive retwist

Some people say that it is bad to retwist you hair but so much when you are trying to loc your hair. Well everyone doesn’t always have the best of luck when it comes to locking. For instance before my hair started to even loc up it would occasionally untwist itself. This caused me great frustration but I pushed forward. Retwisting my hair more than most but wishing that my locs would stay and now they have.

Products

Diy Hair Overnight Mist

  • Witch Hazel
  • African Pride Oil
  • Water (Avoid for 4C Hair)

I soon realized that this remedy would not be the same as before. When I first attempted this and I sprayed the mist in my hair they immediately began to unravel. Of course I mean today of all days but of course it was okay because I had already planned to retwist.

By eliminating the water I prevent further frizz up unless it’s new growth of course. I moisturize my hair with just a mixture of oil and witch hazel.

Loads of Fun

This journey so far has been amazing. I have met a great deal of new people within the loc community. If you are considering the locs then I would strongly encourage you too. Locs is the best decision I have ever made again that is . (lol) I literally get up in the morning and have to do niothing but my girls hair. This is a win win for me and the kids.

I know as Moms we strive to be the best we can be in all things. When it comes to hair we sometimes fall short. There are so many products and choices out there for “Natural Hair”, but which one should you choose?

I myself have been in a constant battle with this for quite some time reaching out to moms, trying new products. It wasn’t until recently that I came across a product that I fell in love with and that worked miracles for my girls.

What exactly is biracial?

Biracial is just simply a term utilize here and now in society in which refers to two races.

How can you manage your little ones hair

  • If dry, wet hair and apply moisturizer
  • Apply your favorite Products for styling

What are some good products for biracial hair?

I myself do believe that there are hair products that were made mainly for biracial hair and there is always someone coming out with something. That neither here nor there chceck out some of my suggestions and leave a comment if they work for you.

  • Not you mothers
  • Shea Moisture
  • Carols Daughter
  • Cantu

Now remember cruelty free is always the way to go when looking for products because I don’t know about you but I would rather have my product tested in a human vs. animal. The “Not you mother” line produces products that are first tested on humans. Not that it;’s mandatory because everyone has there own preference, simply just letting you guys in on what I look for.

Not sure which product to use?

We all face this problem and I have come across a product that I am excited about and have constantly been ranting over. I want to be clear this may not work for everyone but it works for me and this proud mama bear is going to share my secret with you.

This whole line in just indescribable I love that they are all natural.

Now as I said this works for my girls and I love it, the smell is wonderful but if your still undecided I would check out this blog to learn more about this product. Research is always a good method to go about this I mean as moms where would we be if we didn’t research.

I hope this has really helped you and I look forward to sharing more with you.
