Regimen: Wash locs biweekly with Suave clarifying shampoo, hot oil treatment using nothing but olive oil. I was using Organics twist and loc gel for retwists but I don't like it. To me, it leaves build up so I just retwist with water and oil. I only retwist about every 8 weeks but if I don't feel like it then, I won't. That's the beauty of having locs. Freedom means just that. Why fret over what products to use and often to retwist your locs? That was the same mentally that owned me when I was relaxed. That's only my opinion though. If you've been around as a natural for awhile, you know exactly what I mean, newbies will come to know this if you don't already.

Peace, blessings, and love to all my beautiful sistas and brothas!!!


Update:
As of June 7, 2010 my locs are no longer!! I have decided to go on a new journey. This was a very confusing decision to make. I needed a change and there was no way that I was going back to the creamy crack so after racking my brain, I decided to go for it. I cut my locs in half and picked out the remaining. Initially, I started in the middle of my head so I could maintain a ponytail while at work. On the weekend, I decided to cut the remaining locs and get it done. It took 6 days but I am now free from locs and loving my loose naps!!!

***Update***

After wearing my hair loose for a bit over a year, I am ready for my babies!! I really, really, really missed my locs. Did I say really? LOL! I started from two strand twists this time versus comb coils the first go round. I am loving this already.

Now don't get me wrong, I did love my loose hair; gorgeous fros, lovely twist outs, chunky twists...There is just so much work that goes into the maintenance of a loose natural. Much respect to those of you who have done the work and put in the time but for me........I'M BACK BABY!!!!
