My crimped locs


Do people even call them that still? Do y'all remember crimp irons? I had one in high school. Which was 99-'03. They were probably so out of style at the time that I had it. Anywhoovers, I kinda dig my locs like this.


And dare I say it, but I loved wearing the braids too. I took them out way too soon. I think they'll make great protective styles. Yes. Even us loc rockers need styles that force us to keep our hands out of our hair and just let it...be.


The ends are tricky though. A lot of them are straight even though I bended them into a rubberband. I also like my roots aren't as frizzy and out of control.


Don't mind the smudged eye liner. It was a super long day. So yes, darlings...that's that. I went from this



To this...


Will definitely be doing this more often. Woot!

Braid outs give me the same problem with the ends, too, so you're not alone.

One of the ways I tried to get around it was to stop braiding from about 1-2" from the end of the locs, then change the braiding pattern (eg. twisting) and/or working the ends back into the braid.

Yeah, beauty is complicated :lol:

You made it look simply fierce, though!

You inspired me with the braid post. Monday night I washed, twisted and braided up my hair and took the braids out on Tuesday morning. I LOVE IT! *whips hair back and forth* Thanks so much for the inspiration!

You made my day! I love the crinkly look, but I wanted something that looked more like a style, so that I could wear it for several days. Gonna try yours this weekend!

They look super cute! Even though crimps aren't the in thing anymore, *give it another 10 years* gaps definitely are...So jealous.
