My One-Year Anniversary of Braidlocs!
I made it y'all! On August 8, 2018, I celebrated my one-year lociversary. The year really flew by and save for a few issues, I'm really happy I decided to commit to locing my hair. This has probably been the easiest hair maintenance year of my life since I started doing my own hair in the fourth grade.
I did a seven-month update back in February and not much has changed since then. I've gotten a little more length (I can now put my hair into a solid ponytail!) and keeping aware of lint and perimeter build up. I've simplified my routine further, by not using any oils. I simply wash once a week and spritz my hair daily with water that has a few drops of essentials oils. I've also noticed that the braid pattern on some of my locs in the kitchen area (the nape of the neck) is starting to disappear!
I'm looking forward to year two! Watch my update below for more details and to see the park where I take my daily walks.
