A very interesting find and My 5yrs 9 month old locs !

Hi all. First off... do people actually STILL read blogs-I mean hair/loc blogs? Ok you do? Cool. MAGIC HAIR ROLLERS: I found these in the £1 shop. They are like soft spike curlers and work along the same principles. It has a zigzag loop in the centre where you pull your hair through to roll it. Then there's a gap at the head to pull the tail through. Neat eh? At £1 per pack (6 in a pack) you can't go wrong. I bought only 2 packs because I already have soft spikes in the very same size and colour as Magic hair rollers. So if you've always wanted to try soft spikes and didn't get them, hurry to the pound shop and get these before they run out! It's great to see the things that appear in the £1 shop of all places.

Here are some pictures of my locs at 5 yrs 9months. Many have been combined. So many that I'm very surprised that it still looks like sisterlocks. Amazing. My retights are now once every 3-4 months. I gave up retightening the top and crown of my head. It seems to be doing better just left alone. I do brush my scalp. Productwise I use very little. I wash with knotty boy liquid dread shampoo. It does not lather, but get's the job done. No sodium whatever sulfates and contains essential oils instead. I rub either sesame oil(not the cooking sesame oil) or coconut oil into my locs when it's still damp. That's it. My scalp and oil don't seem to be friends so I leave well alone.

I still have yet tried soft spikes. I use pipe cleaners. Next month will be 6 years for me :)

I still read blogs lol. Your hair grew very long and pretty. That is the length I will maintain when I get there.

You sound like me. And didnt you tell you that you write for yourself not for readers? Hmmm. It sure get's lonely doesnt it? lol. I still struggle with it and wonder why I bother. On top of that, I'm not one that's big about having followers so it creeps me out to see my new blog already having 1600 reads since July; yet, I can count the comments on maybe 2 hands. I get creeped out by views and no conversations (like we used to). So I open and close my blog as my mood dictates. One day, it may just be permanently closed like Brunslis, not sure yet....anyway these rollers look cool!

Nice find! I might have to take a look myself.

Your locs look beautiful I can't wait for mine to reach that length! I'm almost there...patience...

Lol. It sure feels lonely when you don't get any comments even when folks are reading. Nice to see y'all though. Indeed I'm wondering whether to just maintain this length. I've cut 2 or 3 times since I started sisterlocks. Hmm I'll wait and see...

Forgive me, I can only speak for myself. Often, I don't leave comments because I didn't really think that it mattered much. I so appreciate the time and effort that you bloggers take to share information. My locs would be lost without you and others. Your locs look beautiful. Thank you again.
