    Default Revitalize and recommit to my dreadlocks...

    Hey Everyone..hope all is well. I am at 8 yrs ** whoa!** and I wanted to know if any of the older dreadheads had thoughts or advice on how to revitalize dreadlocks at this point. I have thought to cut them back yet want that to be a last resort.
    My locs are pretty healthy yet I just want to give them a boost for the next 8....
    Here's to hoping the veterans will have some words of wisdom for me.

    Thanks bunches...
    My heart is spoken for.

    If your locs are pretty healthy than maybe a little spoiling is in order. Could you do a consult with a good loctician, have a steam treatment and get and areas that may need slight repairs taken care of?
    If your care regime is working well that I'd stock with it.
    Congratulations on 8 years!

    I recently saw a sister who had long 8 yr locs (she was a year behind me), she shaved a side and bobbed it. I really like it. It looks light, bouncy and carefree. It would depend upon your lifestyle. I know that I no longer want heavy, weighted locks down my back that take forever to dry and pick up all kinds of life and lent, so I look for styles that are not burdunsome, yet carefree ( I got to be able to pull a bun look off).

    Besides cutting, color is always fun if you're brave enough? What's your preference?

    Thank you!

    Desdesdes...a little pampering is definitely in order! I started and maintain my dreadlocks so that is a great suggestion.

    KnottyAuthor....No color for me...I am salt and pepper and can't wait for the color I did use to go away...I have been thinking of a cut/trim of several inches.

    Again thank you ladies for responding and some serious food for thought!
    My heart is spoken for.
