Specifically my 9-year old sister Skya. Skya JUST hit her one year loc-i-versary (yayyyyyyy! wooo! get it Sky!!!) and she’s come a long long way since she first started her locs last November.
It’s really amazing how much her locs have grown in the past year! She started them as braids, but they’ve really beefed up and…well…loc’ed and its absolutely gorgeous!!
Thing is, she’s kind of hit that in-between phase where her locs are too long to stay out of her face and too short to pull it back. So I thought I’d write on her behalf to ask **YOU** my darling naturalistas if you have any suggestions for my sister. I’ve got a few thoughts myself, but it takes a village and you are all brilliantly creative with your styling!
A few things to keep in mind with your suggestions:
- She’s got a super active lifestyle with a lot of sports going on after school
- She’s nine (just turned!) and so it’s gotta be 3rd grade appropriate
- It would be GREAT if she could do it herself
- She got locs because she doesn’t love to have her hair done every single day (a.k.a. the style needs to last)
