Getting ‘em locs: 5 stages of transitioning

Do you know that dreadlocks go through different stages before they become the beautiful locs that you see?

If you didn’t know that, you are about to get schooled.

Stage 1: Starter

This is also referred to as ‘baby locs’. This is obviously when you are just starting out and it usually spans 3-6 months, depending on how fast your hair grows. At this point, your hair may keep coming undone when washing so you would have to re-twist.

Stage 2: Budding

This is the point where the hair begins looking puffy. Many find it hellish. You will still need to keep re-twisting here. Experts say that you should not forget to keep shampooing at this stage to avoid buildup.

Stage 3: Teen

Finally, it begins to look like proper locs. At this point though, it may stick out in different directions because it is too short to lie down (depending on your hair texture and method of locking). When you shampoo, the locks don’t come loose anymore.

Stage 4: Maturity

You think this should be the final stage? It is not. Here, the new growth of hair naturally locks and lies easily on its own. For some, it happens about a year into the journey. 

Stage 5: Rooted

Now, this is the final stage. You reach it years after you first locked your hair. They are much longer and you can trim them to the length that suits you. All you have to do now is to maintain the neat look and keep the hair hydrated. Mind you, if you were not taking care of the locs all the while, at this point, it will start breaking.

How did you enjoy the crash lesson?
