I've let my hair lock twice. This time (second time) I started from plaits.

When my hair got about 3 inches long (about a year after I cut my first locs), I plaited it and left it alone except washing.

When it began growing out from the roots, I didn't twist. I decided to tighten with my crochet hooks. That worked a lot better for me because I didn't have to wait until my hair was wet (like with twisting).

Also, the only products I use in my hair are shampoo. I use a little bit of coconut oil around my edges if my skin there gets dry but that's incidental as I'm really putting it on my face.

Five years later, it's several inches below my shoulders and I'm ready to cut it all off again for awhile. I love being able to style it lots of ways but the maintenance is getting to be too time consuming right now.

I also believe old hair holds old energy and I want to release some old energy from my life.
