Yay! I love this post. What I love about locs is that everyone’s hair looks totally unique and gorgeous. I have had sisterlocks for 6 months and I love them! No more combing, struggling, and fighting with my hair. All of the expensive products in my cabinet went down to two: shampoo and jbco. I literally haven’t bought a hair product at all this year. Locs are the best style for women with 4b/c hair.

What an inspirational post! Thank you. ? I’ll be loc’d 2 years in August and I have loved every minute including the struggles. I love watching other’s loc journeys as it shows me how beautiful and unique our hair really is. So many different beautiful locs around in the UK too. ??

They started out about the length of the woman 4th from the bottom (when hers were brand new). They’re now about the length of pic 2 of the last woman featured. I feel like they’re still super short and I want them to grow more because i’ve never had long hair. But this is for people who have just started their locs: The truth is, eventually you get so busy living… Read more »

Gorgeous locs and every journey is beautiful. These pics are so inspiring and motivating. Out of all the hairstyles in the world, locs are the most beautiful to me and for me. After taking down my locs (3rd set in 15 years), I’m going back to locs summer 2017.
