WOW!!! is there any one can told me how they done it? what did they used? help me please!!!!


Gor­geous locs and every jour­ney is beau­ti­ful. These pics are so inspir­ing and moti­vat­ing. Out of all the hair­styles in the world, locs are the most beau­ti­ful to me and for me. After tak­ing down my locs (3rd set in 15 years), I’m going back to locs sum­mer 2017.

Ooh, thank you for this post! I’d love to see more posts fea­tur­ing locs & I’m sure I’m not the only one. I’ve had mine for almost 2 years. They start­ed out about the length of the woman 4th from the bot­tom (when hers were brand new). They’re now about the length of pic 2 of the last woman fea­tured. I feel like they’re still super short and I want them to grow more because i’ve nev­er had long hair. But this is for peo­ple who have just start­ed their locs: The truth is, even­tu­al­ly you get so busy liv­ing… Read more »

What an inspi­ra­tional post! Thank you. ? I’ll be loc’d 2 years in August and I have loved every minute includ­ing the strug­gles. I love watch­ing other’s loc jour­neys as it shows me how beau­ti­ful and unique our hair real­ly is. So many dif­fer­ent beau­ti­ful locs around in the UK too. ??

locs are the ulti­mate pro­tec­tive style. It just proves our hair grows just as fast as any oth­er race we just have to learn how to retain length. Its so sim­ple but yet com­pli­cat­ed LOL

Love it!


Yay! I love this post. What I love about locs is that everyone’s hair looks total­ly unique and gor­geous. I have had sis­ter­locks for 6 months and I love them! No more comb­ing, strug­gling, and fight­ing with my hair. All of the expen­sive prod­ucts in my cab­i­net went down to two: sham­poo and jbco. I lit­er­al­ly haven’t bought a hair prod­uct at all this year. Locs are the best style for women with 4b/c hair.
