|Full+ Free: My Loc Inspiration For This Week.|
I've unraveled some of my locs. It's not a major undertaking, but it has still been a tedious, slow process. I decided to take this route to give me a bit more length to work with after cutting my locs.
A few years ago, I shared Chelsea Jackson's journey to freeing her locs and after consulting with a trusted stylist, I decided to follow the same protocol with a few adjustments.
Since my goal was to free a relatively small amount, the task doesn't seem so daunting. I used conditioner I had on hand to soak the locs and used a rat tail comb and went to work. After one session with the conditioner, I worked with coconut oil and I must say, my hair loves it in every way. I kept a spray bottle of water handy to help with moisture, but I try to keep the water to a minimum.
So that leaves me working to be creative with my hair. This process is like the slowest unbraiding party in history with the same awkward styling options. My go-to style right now is the "pin + ponytail" or the "forget it and scarf it" looks.
|That "scarf it and forget it" look works best for yoga + workouts.|
It was one of those moments when you can see the beginning and the end and appreciate them both.
