    Cool 3 long years, but im still loc'd and loving it

    I am so happy with my locs. It has been a very long time since i posted.
    As of February 22nd I have been loc'd for 3 years. I had actually thought about cutting my locs and going back to my loos hair, but
    i just couldn't do it. I looked in the mirror and saw the growth. my locs are now a little past my neck almost shoulder length. I have been using a new shampoo by Taliah Waajihd , and her herbal conditioner is wonderful with my locs. its so light, and it softens my hair. Between washing i use her moisture cleanse.
    now as far as re twisting i am stuck. I have been using her loc it up gel and its been working well. but i am thinking about trying something else. i just dont know what. I can't use shea butter as my hair hates it. it gets very hard...and crinkly
    I want to use a deep conditioner, but nothing seems to work as well as taliah's herbal conditioner..maybe i can use a warm oil treatment.
    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi, congrats.
    I was never able to use BEP without build up. In fact I started my first set of locks with the locking gel. That was a mess I had to re-do. I tended to stick with the scalp cleanser and clarifier from time to time.

    Herbal teas and aloe vera juice work well for my locks, a touch of jojoba for moisture. I'm good.
