"Roller-Set and Braid-Out at 4 years & 4 months"

Greetings, finally I have gotten around to finally posting stuff about hair :) This is a photo of a roller-set in the front and braid out from the top of my head to the back. Since my hair is getting longer and thicker I can't roll my entire head anymore because my arms get too tired so I thought I would try half and half. I actually like the results, let's see how long it will last (smile).

"Does Length Determine the Weight of Your Locks"

I need some input from my Sisterlock Family. As you can see by this photo I have a lot of locks and they are thick. I wanted to try to let them grow as long as they would but they are almost getting to heavy to wash myself. Today, after I washed my locks, I wanted to do a roller-set because I have not done one in months, but by the time I got to the top of my hair my arms were too tired to finish rolling my entire head so I braided the rest in individual braids. Now I am by no means complaining because I know that I am blessed to have such thick, healthy locks but I wanted to know for those of you who have long locks has the length caused more weight for your hair, especially when wet? Right now it is not a problem when it is dry, but it may be in the future because as it gets longer it seems to be getting fuller and thicker. Those that have long or thick locks, do you wash and style your hair yourself?
One of the main reasons I got locks is so that I can manage my own hair, but I don't know if I will be able to do that if I let it get any longer, but I really want it to be longer (can you say dilema)....I don't know what are you all experiencing?
