6 Year Loc Journey Update

People often assume that if you have fine hair, or thin hair as many people call it, that you can’t have thick locs. I’m proof that you can. In my recent video, I am sharing updates on my loc journey with fine hair and thick locs. You’ll see (and hear) what innovations (read: obstacles) I’m currently facing with my locs, what products I’m using, and get the “final” say on if these shears will be put to use.




While you’re here, I’m curious where you are in your loc journey! In the comments, share your current length goal and whether you‘lol cut your locs when you reach that goal.

June 2022 makes 20 yrs I’ve been loc’d. I’ve cut my hair often… initially cut was when they first reached passed my waist they’d got cut to my shoulders. Now, I cut them at least once a year, or about every 8 or 9 months to keep them just below my shoulders, or armpit length. I don’t have a final length goal as I’ve achieved that multiple times… and the last goal was to grow them out for my wedding on Aug, but I couldn’t do it! I was trying to save my pandemic length but they got too long, and they snatched and pulled the front of my hairline from the weight and wearing them pulled back in a ponytail. So I just cut them in May to my armpits.

Armpit length is a great length, like just enough hair for styles and comfort.
