    I love my hair! I only wish I'd done it sooner.

    The maintenance can be tough at times but it's so worth it. Locs take a lot of patience.

    I've had "locs" ( I hate

    I had locs. I no longer refer to them

    as "dread" locs after educating myself on the origins of the name. Anyway I had them for many years. They were just about down to my waist. It made my lifestyle easier. I no longer had to worry about combing and detangling. But after a while I got bored with them. I dyed it...

    And I am tempted to cut them off.

    I hate maintaining it. So my hair is always wrapped. Twisting is annoying.

    The title says it all.

    I have dreads. I had them 4 times, then I chose to cut them off. Now this is the 5th time with dreads and I don't want them cut off. I had these for 3 years now and they were growing fast. It started as a little finger, but now, It's nearly a foot long at the back and my hair is...

    This was the best decision I have made

    for my hair. I am almost 3 years in and they are clean, healthy, and growing very well. I only regret not growing them sooner.

    I was thinking about cutting my lock off,

    All My Locs

    I have long locs. They are almost down to my waist. Unfortunately I have not found anyone to care for them. In NYC you can get your hair done almost anywhere. In Florida you are required to have a braiders license to do locs. Anyone with locs understands that braiding and locking...
