    Your locs are still babies they will loc when they are ready to, there is no set period, just relax, be patient and enjoy. Welcome to locdom! I've been locked for 4 years, one of my strands took 2 years to loc.

    Yep, I agree with Denny, your babies are still just that...babies. Give em time. I'm looking at 2 years and I still have one or two or three, that just refuse to completely loc. Rebellious, I tell ya...rebellious. Just sit back and enjoy the ride. They will loc when they are good and ready (at least that's what mine keep telling me).
    Thank you, Jah!!!! Thank you!!!!

    I updated my picture album here on NP ya'll. Year 4! What a blessing to be a loc sistah!

    I hate these rebellious locs. I have some on top that refuse to loc. I agree that you should just enjoy them and let them do their thing.
    Quit tripping on what you're wearing on your behind and get some education in your head.

    I agree with the others that you should let them do there thing.
    ....BUT.....
    I was in a similar position with locs on the side of myhair that would not loc (they were loose to the very tip or came out altogether). I was not that patient...so what i did is I VERY LOOSELY braided them (there were like two on both sides of my head, next to my ear) and then latched from tip of the hair to the root. Now, they're fine. I'm not sure if it made much of a difference, but I was rinsing alot and a bit frustrated that these four just wouldnt get with the program.
