Late night photography. He’s one of the reasons I’m always on the move. And that’s one of the reasons I decided to loc my hair, it truly does help me move faster because I don’t have to worry too much about, “What am I gonna do with my hair?” That was one of my least favorite questions to answer 🙄 •

I remember when I couldn’t put my locs in a low bun because the front locs didn’t go all the way back. Growth! It takes time, tho. And even with the low bun I still like it messy 😉 lol  It’s quicker and easier and I be on the go 💨

I forgot to post this BEFORE my post last week. Ha ha, I knew I would, too. Oh well 🤷🏽‍♀️ Welcome to the journey toward 4 years 😊

1️⃣ my fave go to style - the messiest bun 
2️⃣ my next fave, messy bun with some down. @bbsketch helping me celebrate 3 years; he’s very excited about it 😏
3️⃣ my least fave style, a ponytail. I have to mold it for it to look acceptable. And I’m not crazy about how it looks from the side, but, it’s getting there.
4️⃣ the drop down. Had to add this pose because you’ll find it a lot throughout my pix. It really shows how much my front have grown 😊
5️⃣ I can’t show all the good without showing the ugh too. I definitely should have had a retwist by now. Locs are a lil ashy too - blaming it on the winter. •

Been on my loc journey for 3 years now and I’m feeling like it’s just beginning! I’m so glad I decided to keep this locumentary for myself - it’s definitely done its job of helping me to see how far I’ve come since those beginner 2 strand twists. And, according to lots of y’all, it has helped others on their own journeys which makes my heart smile 😊 I am so not an expert! I’m still learning about how to care for my locs while living an active lifestyle. That’s one reason I decided to start this - I never found a lot of info on how to keep locs CLEAN & FRESH while running, working out, etc. Anyways…here are my 3 year old locs in all their uneven glory lol

Pulling my locs back are still my favorite. I’ve been trying not to do it lately because I feel like I do it too much lol. I’ve said it before, I like healthy roots at the edges, but again, it’s definitely time for the #retwist. It’s been uh, 3 months since the last one 😏

It is time for a #retwist! I washed my locs this weekend and ended with a cowash. This did not stop my locs from trying to bind together. I still had to separate them. Oh, did y’all see that Eagles touchdown off the interception? Let’s go Birds 🦅 •

Different Perspectives. I don’t get to see the under view of my hair often. From this pic I see it’s a lil linty - gotta fix that. The other pic is a view from, like if my butt looked up, lol. Again, not a view I see often and it’s nice to see how my “undercolor” comes through. It’s good to see and hear new & different perspectives. We don’t always have to like or agree with them but we will have the opportunity to take something away from the experience of a new perspective. •

Happy New Year! I am still enjoying the freshness of a new year 😊 There are lots of things I’d like to accomplish this year and I’m sure you’re feeling the same! I’m trying to remember that as this new year feeling fades, there’s actually a new day, every day, if we’re blessed to see it! Hopefully we’ll feel the same newness each day God allows us to be here. Each new day is a new opportunity to be a blessing to others and to get some stuff accomplished 👊🏽 it’s also a new day to release the “ugh” stuff and move on to greater! Looks like my locs are moving on from the color I once had, lol. The color at my tips gets shorter and shorter. •

Thank you to all 5,629 of the instafam traveling on this loc journey with me 😘 Y’all liked my summer locs the most - me too. I’m still trying figure out winter locs 😄 @locsbyduafe came through with the most liked pic of 2017 - rightfully so because @syreeta_scott started the journey all lovely for me 😍 Can’t forget the homie @katbkurly for hooking up the retwists - gotta see her real soon 😏  Much love to you all and let’s rock this 2018 by showing love to everyone. I hinted at something coming out soon - 2018 *head nod* •

Late post! My locs are chilling again after a nice period of growth. Haven’t had a retwist in about 4 months. In a month I’ll be 3 years in the game 😊 
Happy Christmas to y’all!
Much love 😘

I always feel the need to explain when my posts are late. I think because consistency is important to me. My goal is to post each weekend and on busier weekends it can be a challenge. That’s it. Busy weekend. That was probably way too much info but I feel better, lol. Thx for reading and enjoying my loc journey with me 😍
