Veteran Loc'ers Chime In: Karen from Natural Beautiful Hair

If you are a loc'er or a fan of locs and NOT following Karen's blog Natural Beautiful Hair, pull yourself together! Her locs are just soooo beautiful and her blog is nothing short of inspiration and pride of natural hair. Loves it!

1. How old are your locs?
I have been growing my hair for about 7 years.

2. Have you ever thought about cutting them? If so, why?
The current length of my loc’s reaches my mid back. I think when it gets to the point where it gets too long to be comfortable; I will consider give then a trim of a couple of inches. But my main concern would be if they are too heavy or if they cause headaches. Otherwise, I am in no rush to cut my hair. 

3. Have you ever combined your locs? Why or why not?
I have not combined my loc’s. I just really like a uniformed look, and prefer to have all of my loc’s be their own individual selves. But I have seen women with combined loc’s/dreads that are beautiful.

4. Fill in the blank: It frustrates me when my locs ________.
It frustrates me when a loc falls off!!! Ha ha….  Luckily so far it has only happened at home. But can you imagine that happening at a meeting at work! This only happens when I have a weak loc that I did not repair in time. So I try to make sure that I check for any loc's that are thinning out and repair them, so none of them break off.

5. Fill in the blank: I love when my locs ___________.
I love when my locs they are clean, light and smell fresh.

6: Any words of wisdom for struggling loc'ers?
Have patience and just  know that even though there are rough days, that it will all be worth it if you stick with it. Please always cover your loc’s/dreads at night and keep your hair moisturized. Your hair will love you for it. 

Loc Rocker loves you, Karen!! Thanks for being such an inspiration to us all!
