Current state of locking- 5 months

At this point of my locking process at five months, I have learned so much about my hair and my texture because now it is free of products of any kind. Without gels and mooses, flat iron, a comb and a brush, I always thought that I would be lost. My hair has an even stiffer curl than I realized and it has caused my hair to draw up as my hair settles into a holding state. Its a good thing when it comes to daily care because I don't use rollers or a braid out when styling. As a result my hair senses to be grow fuller and wider first and then longer. (Weird)

Sense my last post I have changed my hair care products to Jamaican Mango and Lime http://www.rastagroup.com/. It is a lot cheaper and it's easier to use and available in stores. I would get so pissed rubbing that shampoo bar to get a lather and then rubbing it onto my scalp. I use the JML shampoo only right now but it is nice to know that they offer many different products that can be used in the future. So at five months locked, I'm still learning and watching my weekly progress and looking forward to my six month mark.
How is your process going? Learning anything?

Happy 5 months! You are right there is so much to learn during this locking journey. I love JML products. I've juts recently ran ou tof the shampoo and conditioner. I also use their lock styling lotion which is great for roller sets and braidouts.
Take Care

Your hair always look nice to me.

Brown Buttahfly: Sexy name by the way and would be a very sexy tatoo too. Thank you girl, yes JML is so good smelling stuff.

Yes I had to change the clothes on my blog. I got bored :-)
Thank you for the very sweet comment.

Your locks are looking great. I'm 6 months and am learning more and more daily. I haven't really used any products but will be on the look out for JML products.

Yeah i loving JML at the mo. Do you use the tingle shampoo? I love the way it feels and when i've got a cold seems to clear my head as well.

I guess we'll continue to learn about our hair as time goes by
