2 Years, 7 Months Loc Journey Length Check

For details about my hair right now, check out my previous post:  {{2 Years, 7 Months Loc Update + Combining My Locs}}.

Over time, my hair goals have pretty much stayed the same.  From the beginning, I planned to color my hair each year and my long term goal was to grow my hair beyond butt length.  For the most part, my hair related goals have remained the same.  The biggest difference between then and now is simply time:  three years to be exact!

Lately, most of my time has been spent revamping my shampooing routine to care for my Eczema, both on my skin and scalp.  I have two or three products that I heavily depend on now.  For severe flare ups, I use Selsun Blue Dry & Itchy Scalp shampoo.  To prevent flare ups and to maintain the general health of my scalp, I use Shea Moisture's African Black Soap Body Wash as a shampoo.  And to keep my roots moisturized when my scalp is doing well, I use Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship Shampoo.

In general, all three of the shampoos I mentioned above work great for me, depending on what my needs are.  And most important to me, none of them strip my hair or my scalp of its natural oils.  Since my hair is permanently colored, I rarely use the products for my scalp on the shaft of my hair/locs.  Instead, another set of products is what I use to care for my color treated hair.  For information about how I care for my colored locs and what products I use, visit this post:  {{Hair Products for Colored Locs & Eczema Relief}}.  I also go into depth about my Eczema relief routine.

Below is the video version of my loc update, featuring my length check and a close up look at my locs right now.  Hope you all enjoy!
