Loc Journey: Starter Locs with Two Strand Twists- Week 1


Hello and Happy New Year! Let me get straight to the point. I have decided to loc my hair! I have been thinking about doing this for a while now. After watching a hundred(literally) videos on Youtube and doing some research, I am ready to begin this journey. Because I was primarily wearing my hair in twists, the transition to locs shouldn't be too difficult for me. 

Here are the details on how I started: 


  • I deep conditioned, washed, and air-dried my hair in braids(applied some Vitamin E oil to each section). 
  • After air drying for about 1 hour, I proceeded to twist my hair.
  • Before twisting, I applied a nickle amount of vitamin E oil to each section. 
  • I did small(not mini) twists and twisted clockwise.
  • I did block parts and tried to do it in a brick format
  • I have a total of 161 starter locs which were installed on 1/4/2018

To moisturize, I will: 

  • spritz my hair with water which has a few drops of lavender oil in it
  • apply vitamin E oil to each section 
  • Oil my scalp when necessary 
They shrunk a lot and aren't that full. But I KNOW they will probably shrink even more and plump up nicely. Length won't be an issue either. 

I'm not sure when my first wash will be, but it will most likely be in no longer than 4 weeks. I will most likely re-twist then as well, but I will keep you all posted on that. I don't want to "plan" too much and just go with the flow. 

I am excited for this journey and can't wait to see the transformation of my locs. 
I will most definitely document everything on this blog so stay tuned!
