In between the rigors of my first year homeschooling my daughter, I have managed to eek out a few pictures of my micro locs at 2 years old. I did a roller set on Nov. 1, and these photos show the results. I used magnetic rollers, the same ones I used in my 29 Styles Challenge. Because my micro locs are much denser than before and a bit longer, I found that I needed to use more rollers than ever. I think I had nearly 50 in my head. And no, I do not sleep in those! It would be impossible. I put them in my damp hair in the morning and removed them for an evening out. They were too heavy and very uncomfortable for those eight or so hours. In fact, right after I put them in, I vowed to never use them in my locs again… not at this length. I also purchased Lock Loops, which I’m looking forward to trying.
I’m very pleased with my growth and the size of my locs. Below, you can see my hair at 2 years, 1 year and 2 days.
