Compare 3 months, 5 months and 5 year loc progression. I've cut only once. I trimmed between 1-2ins last year. Whoever said afro hair doesn't grow lied. It grows if only you let it. The fringe (bangs) are a loc filler/piece I made myself. Very easy to put in. No sewing/no glue/no pins etc. Your own locs goes through and anchors them. I'll be making some in different colours and lengths for those who want to add a little something or change the appearance of their locs without cutting colouring or altering them too much. More on this later as I've just decided to make it for others.
The last 3 pics were all taken in the 1st year of sisterlocks,when it shrank and poofed out some.
I've discovered I can do simple styles with my length. The style in the top pictures is one of my favourites. I wore it like this whilst I was in Ghana. The heat was nearly unbearable.
