Happy Loc-versary to me!!

Yesterday was my 7 year loc-versary.  Yay!!  I wanted to do a style that I haven't tried before but I didn't get around to it.  I've been super busy with work and family.  But I did get a chance to wash and retwist my hair today. 

This is after I washed with black soap and peppermint castile soap and rinsed with apple cider vinegar.  I let my favorite tingling conditioner sit for an hour .  No more flakes, no more buildup.

I was trying to take this picture by myself but Mr. Sassafras wanted to join in!!  He's so silly.

Look how much my hair has grown! I used my own honey and aloe vera lock gel this time.

I haven't had much time to play in my hair lately.  I was really enjoying the curls because I could just get up and go with them.  Just spritz and run my fingers through it.  I haven't worn my hair without curls in over a month; I don't know what to do.  I'll probably end up rolling it by the end of the week.

When I get some time, I plan to do a feature on my 12 year old son who is rocking his second set of locs.  This set is about 2 years old.  I'm also planning a Q&A about me and my hair so if you have any questions, email me or leave them in the comments.  I may even feature my bestest friend who is currently transitioning, if she lets me.  Or her sister who is about to start locs.  So stay tuned.

Til next time, thanks for reading.


  1. Happy locversary!looking good.Congrats.And your man is hilarious :)

  2. Happy Loc anniversary to you! Your hair is getting long! Congrats!

    My questions for your Q&A are:

    What was the most difficult stage of your locking journey?

    If you were to ever start your locs over, what would you do different with your second set?

    What do you love the most about your locs? Now that you are 7 years locked, are there any changes as far as how you maintain your hair and how you feel about your locs overall?

  3. LOL @ the hubster! I love it! Congrats on 7 years. Wow!!! Keep on being such an inspiration to the rest of us. You are simply beautiful!
