Okay, Okay, It has been a while since I have posted, but please forgive me, it gets really busy around here with the 7 kids! I have been trying to get my business off the ground, and just running this household is a 24hr job!
Anyway, the focus of this post is my youngest son, Justice. His hair is loced and has been for just about a year now too. His locs were started from just about an inch of hair, and it has been interesting to see the transition of his hair.
Here is a pic of his hair in the beginning
The biggest obstacle has been keeping his hair free of lint and debris, because as you can imagine, he is a VERY active boy! I used to spend a lot of time trying to keep his locs neat and in order, but I realized pretty quickly that I just needed to let him go and to not worry too much about it. I found that simple water, a bit of honey if needed, and a lot of ‘leavin it alone’, has done wonders in his growth process. Now that they are formed, I am just latching once every 4-5 months, in fact, this is my MO for every one in the house that has mature locs, myself included.
I am amazed at his growth over the last year! You guys tell me what you think!
