Walking and Locking







On Sat November 1, I reached my 7th month of locking.

It's crazy just how fast that the time flies when your not wasting time combing and worrying about your hair. At this point I think of my hair as an after thought. It's crazy really compared to how much I did to maintenance my hair prior to locking. I have never curled or rolled my locs at this point yet and I really don't think I intend to until it's very long. I really don't think that it will be noticeable if I did so why bother? Now my hair has stopped slipping and my stiff curl has relaxed some what. At about four months my hair started to curl right up. My locks overnight looked shorter but to me were better because it showed I was making progress. Now when I get up in the morning my hair is an after thought. I put on clothes and get ready and then five minutes before walking out. I style my hair or just set it free to hang. I could never in a million years do that type of stuff when my hair was loose.
Length wise my hair is growing pretty quickly, and has really thickened up too. My hair is now a little past my shoulders with my stiff curl. The sizing of the locks I had installed has remained the same. They have not became larger over time as of yet, so on that only time will tell. I still get some bunching on the ends of my hair that my Specialist works on little by little during my retighting appointments. So at this time I still walking and locking and laughing.

How are your locs doing?
