    Soo, decided to cut my locks back to APL - blunt cut not layered. They had reached mid-back. A bit too long for me and I never did anything with them but fling them in a ponytail. Think my personal ideal length may be BSL...

    I haven't been on this site in YEARS. I HAD two set of locks. I had that set for 5 years, second set I cut off when it was only a year in. Now I'm thinking about starting them over...

    just need to decide what method I'm going to use.

    You sound almost identical to me (haven't been on the site in a long time either!) I had 2 lock sets, first was 6 years and second was a little over a year. Now its about 7 years since I cut off set 2 and I am seriously thinking of starting again. I was thinking of starting with braids and then semi freeform? Kind of over the whole super manicured locs thing but I still want small locs though... I started with two strand for my first set and braids for my second and I like how twists looked a little better but braids held up better to washing. Idk. Decisions, decisions.
    Yet another natural hair journey...

    I'm another person who hasn't been on this site in years (was literally one of the orignals---shout out to anyone reading this who remembers when we use to all hang out on naturallycurly.com and nappyhair.com!!). Anyhow, I had locs for about a year that were started with TSTs, then I cut that set off about 3.5 years ago because I wanted to play in my hair.
    Anyhow, I've decided that I'm ready for locs again. I put my hair in small (not micro) braids last weekend. Braids are a better way for me to start considering my lifestyle (I have to wash/rinse my hair a lot). After 15 years of being natural, I think I'm done playing in my hair and actually have the patience to go through the locking process now.

    I have been online looking at pics of locs and I have even viewed a few YouTube videos. I feel a lot like I did when I first went natural, hence my return to Nappturality after such a long time awat. I have noticed that I tend to think a LOT about how my locs will turn out when they're matured and what phases I will go through in order to get there. I have lots of frizz and oddly enough, I think I LIKE it. I see a lot of pictures of super neat locs and I kinda feel like I might have to get over that due to my scalp condition (significant dermatitis and sensitive scalp overall) which does not allow me to do a lot of super tight twisting AND requires that I shampoo at LEAST once weekly. This will be interesting to say the least.

    Whatever I do with my natural hair, I believe that (for me) locs are the wiser choice.

    I'm almost giddy excited looking forward to this weekend so I can give my locs a spa day. It's been so long, at least 3 to 4 years since I've done this (shame on me). I can't believe how much I take my locs for granted now, when I was so anxious in the beginning for them to form and grow. It's been almost 8 1/2 years now and I find I get irritated with the length but am still reluctant to cut....at least not until my 10 year mark.
