My Take on Lock Stages -

Hey everybody,

How's it going?

I've just spent ages putting together a long overdue blog post on loc phases  - based on my personal experiences as a loctician...

I've tried to marry up most of the existing terminology with the corresponding stage and used pictures of my clients' locs to illustrate - hope you find it helpful. Read the full post on www.almondavocado.com and find the first bit below.

Sisterlocks Comparisons: Loc stages and changes


How do locs change over the course of 365 days? 2 years? 10 years?

Depending on to whom you speak, locs enter 3-6 phases from birth to maturity. 

For example - here's an inforgraphic that has done the rounds so much I am not certain of the original source.

I don't stick to this terminology ad verbatim but I'll try to tie my classification (based on experience) back to their terminology above.

PHASE 1: NEWBIE, STARTER OR BABY LOCS 

  • Locs are neat and clearly defined but look more like fine braids than locs. 
  • Partings are clearly defined and perfectly visible giving a neat but scalpy look - which some newbies hate, lol  :)
  • The shaft of the newly created loc is several times smaller than the parted square at the base of the loc.
