Four Years With Microlocs


By Terez Howard

I took these pictures back in October.  My hair is dripping wet from a shampooing.  At that time, I had worn my microlocs for four years.  I only say that in the past tense because now I have had my microlocs for four years and three months.  You didn’t think that I cut out my microlocs.  Did you?  Anyways, life has been extraordinarily busy.  Even though I don’t update often, I have been wearing my locs in several different styles.  I still love them!

I would say that I have come a long way in these past four years.

My Microlocs Have Grown

    By Terez Howard Since I got my iPad, I have been addicted to one particular type of selfie, as you can see below. I feel like I am finally seeing some growth!  My hair has officially reached its longest length now.  I have had my locs for 3 1/2 years.  Although I usually wear curls, which takes away some length, I thought I could show my hair fresh out of the shower.  (Click on any of the photos for a larger image).          Related Posts:No Related Posts

A Random Style On My Locs

  By Terez Howard I was trying to mimic this style that I did on my hair some time back.  Since it was requested that I do a tutorial for it, I wanted to practice the style.  Unfortunately, I could not get my hair to cooperate.  I found it completely impossible to do the French roll style that I did before.  I have no idea what my trick was.   I ended up doing this style on my locs.  I simply rolled them and used bobby pins to secure the roll.  I hid a mass of bobby pins under my hair flower accessory.          Related Posts:A Unique Micro Locs Updo HairstyleI Won A 5K Race!A Sculpted Style

My Microlocs Are 3 Years Old

By Terez Howard On Oct. 29, my microlocs turned 3 years old.  I still love them.  I am due for a retightening as it’s been six weeks since my last retightening.  I plan to complete my retightening next weekend since my schedule has been so busy. What I’ve learned about my hair: I’m not particularly keen on my hair without a curl, curve or wave.  It dries stiff and lifeless.  In the 3-year photos below, I took these shots right out of the shower.  You might notice droplets in my hair. My hair has grown about 3 inches over the past year.  I don’t think that’s particularly impressive, just a fact. My microlocs have just entered a stage where they’re

Remember Kimberly? Check out her Sisterlocks now!

By Terez Howard You might remember Kimberly’s interview last year.  Check out how she’s doing now! How have you been enjoying your Sisterlocks? I absolutely LOVE my Sisterlocks.  The freedom of NOT having to “do” my hair so often is liberating!  I’m a full-time student completing my degree in music education, and hairstyling is not high on my totem pole of to-do’s. Do you have any new developments with your hair? I haven’t had any major developments with my locs besides growth.  I did get them colored by my consultant back in December 2012.  She used the Chi color system, which worked great on my hair.  I thankfully haven’t experienced any drying or breakage. I also stopped banding around May
