Yep, I got my fourth retightening and my ends cut...

OK, so... I was going through some things, needed something new, and I was so damn, yep I said it, damn tired of my scraggly ends. I needed some shape, some freedom, and something sassy. I asked my loctitian to cut my hair, and when she started, of course I was acting like a punk, but I like it, and I am glad I got it over with. No more having 2 different textures; mind you, I pressed my hair so much, I had some straight ends, no perm. I will post pictures on how it looks after a wash. This is what it looks like after using sponge rollers.

I will be glad...

when I get some more length. I am getting really tired of the sponge rollers. I mean, well not really, but sometimes I want to put my hair in a pony-tail and it ends up looking like a poon-tail because I have so much skrinkgage. I know, I know, it's apart of the process, BUT DANG! I want options NOW...LOL. My hair is seriously uneven in the middle and I have that breakage split in the crown, which is growing, but I have to constantly pat that area down. I have been so self-conscious about it. I mean, my hair will look soooo full on the side and in part of the front, but then I have to turn around and flatten the back. This was much easier when my hair was pressed out. But, I guess like everyone else I am going to have my good and bad days... I will be glad when I hit the one-year mark. I guess this would help if I knew how to braid my hair back myself. I don't. Oh well. Done being a big baby.

The Bunching Debate...

Are you ladies having issues with 'bunching'? I have read on so many blogs that bunching is not even a real problem and there is NO WAY to get around it. I feel like I have some bunching, but I am comparing my locs to others, and honestly, I don't mind it IF IN FACT I have it. I don't know. Should I be concerned because honestly I am not. Not even a little bit.

Ohhhh snap! The texture of my locs is changing!

So lately I have been following the advice of my loctitian and not using ANY product on my hair. I have only washed it once this month, and I am now a fan of Dr. Bronner's Castile Almond Liquid soap. It's water based and it works PERFECTLY for me. My locs smell great, they feel clean, and I have not had any bad skin reactions to it. Check the Web site out here: Since following her advice, I have noticed that my locs have become thicker, I am not experiencing any slippage, and the texture is changing. I have so much volume now! They are REALLY starting to loc and the locs that were once stringy have become some thick! I am happy and satisfied how my journey is progressing. You can definitely tell the difference between my 'overly pressed' and 'happy' hair. Those ends will be cut in a year or two. I will need to have the locs groomed soon to get rid of the fuzz, but I can live with it for now. Anyway, that is all I have to report. Happy Loc'ing!
