Guest Post: Loc rockin' at 2 months

Hello Loc Rocker readers. My name is Courtney and I have been loc'ing for two months. While its only been two months it feels like forever! I say this because so many things has happened in this short time. By this I mean FRIZZ and I'm trying to keep it under control.

Welp, I learned early that this is impossible! I I have what I call the Alphalfa syndrome , locs sticking up everywhere! It has been LIBERATING to just let go. I came in a little reluctant because this process is brand new.After being a lurker on blogs I have gained this new confidence with my hair and I am sooo excited to see the future changes.

These photos are week after re twisting. Also walking in the rain and working out like a mad woman wont help the frizzyness. [ is it time to start latching??] Im learning to go with it as time goes on. I don't have a regimen in particular but I do religiously keep my scalp moisturized with my home made rosemary/ olive oil. Every Friday after cleaning my scalp with Organic Root stimulator cleanser, I warm up the oil and massage my scalp , wet a towel then microwave it for 2 mins and let it sit for 5 mins. [ soo relaxing] Im a DIY penny pitching kinda girl so I re twist myself using Organic root stimulator Gel and Shea butter.

I am looking forward to see more newbie loc'ers like myself here on Loc Rocker. I want to see more methods and encouragement from us.

Got questions for Courtney? Feel free to comment in this post and she will answer!
