My Locs FAQ

How Long Have you Been Loc’d?

I have been loc’d for almost 4 years this January 2017. I started in 2013 after being natural for a 3 years. Before I would go back and forth between perming and pressing my hair. I also wore a ton of wigs and weaves to mask the breakage I was experiencing. I started with my locs with comb twists that I did myself.

How Long Did It Take to Loc You Hair?

It took a good 6 months. I was actually shocked, my hair is a very tight 4c. There is a curl but it’s teeny tiny. I thought my hair would be perfect for locing but it still took a while.


How Often Do You Maintain Your Locs?

I typically retwist my own locs every month or so. I wash them every week, but I don’t always retwist. It takes forever. I have only had my locs professionally done a few times.


How Many Locs Do You Have?

I have no idea. I don’t really understand why people count. I have a lot of locs. Some think they are sisterlocks but they are not.
