Loc Log #22.......21 months

I don't have a lot to report except my hair is still growing like crazy!  I really do love my locs!  Recently, I've started using Jamaican Black Castor Oil, and I must say that it is simply amazing.  I can really see and feel a difference in my hair.  It is very soft, and in some ways thicker at my roots.  I feel like it's a bit stronger considering I have interlocked in about two months.  I'm hoping to interlock this week.....will probably take all week.  Nonetheless, loving the locs! Pictures!

Thinking I may really need to get on the retightening.  But it's cool.....love it anyway.


  1. your locks have come a long way. Looking very full and healthy!

  2. Love the curls!!! What did you use and do? What is your regimen? How do you use the castor oil? Thanks for your response!!

  3. Thanks all! @Felicia These are pipecleaner curls. I don't do this very often because it takes too long! As we speak, I'm sitting under the dryer with rods. It didn't take nearly as long to roll with those. I don't have a regimen set in stone. I shampoo my hair and scalp when I no longer pass the 'finger nail test'. I try to clarify with ACV or a good clarifying shampoo (Paul Mitchell 3) once or twice a month....depending on how much buildup I may have accumulated. As far as the castor oil goes, I mix it with another oil that is lighter such as Jojoba oil and put it on my scalp....maybe once no more than twice a week. Sorry it took so long to respond, I've been dealing with a family illness. Thanks for your patience.
