Believe it or not, my hair is dry in this picture. I was trying to showcase my length without it being fully saturated in water. There is no water in this straight loc look, but there is still some shrinkage. Oh well, it will have to do for now.
On a separate note, I have three locs in my problem area that I mentioned in a previous blog article that had thinned because the locs were too large to support the curl behavior and curl diameter of that area. This is one of the first times that I realized how beneficial the small Sisterlocks that I had asked for originally would have been if my Sisterlocks were done in accordance with the Sisterlocks grid.
Before the wash - my loc styling still looked good right? The Tropical Roots foam really holds my wet sets. I love it!
Oh yeah, the one loc that I used the liquid beeswax on has been wonderful and well behaved. I mentioned this in a previous article on this blog, but I will take an updated picture of that loc in another article coming soon.
And yes, all of my Sisterlocks are still holding on. I believe that because the three thinner locs that I was worried about are surrounded by other locs that support them, they are going to be fine. I am going to go into a hydration centered maintenance mode for about a month or so because I want to focus on health versus styling of my locs.
