This is one loc combed out. Look at those curls!!
Look at how much length I've retained.
The shorter loc is actually 2-3 small combed out locs that have been two strand twisted.
That's about 3 small locs combed out, twisted, then released.
I LOVE IT!!
Two strand twist. The rest of my hair is in spiral (pipe cleaner) curls.
Half of the bottom row in 2 two strand twists.
Close up of the twists.
So wish me luck with this. I'm not concerned with the time it's going to take. I should be done by Thanksgiving because I only take down 2-3 locs a day. I'm in no rush really. And I have no pattern planned in which I will work. In the meantime, I've been on youtube looking at loose naturals getting ideas on what to do when I'm done. I'm so EXCITED!! *(Remember 6 months ago when I said I wasn't going to comb out my locs? Check it out here. I'm not changing my mind this time.)*
On a slightly different note, my favorite student has locs. Unfortunately, yesterday was her last day in my class (I work at an alternative school and she's returning to her regular school next week). She let me take a few pictures of her hair. I'll call her JT.
Look how thick and luscious her locs are!!
That's how thick I want my locs to be when I start my new set. Hopefully my new set will be this long when I start them. JT has been growing her locs for almost 2 years. She is one of the few loc'd females I know. Almost every dread head around here is male. We loc'd ladies have to stick together. Anyway, I just wanted to share this young loc'd lovely with you.
Til next time, thanks for reading. Be blessed.
