Hey peeps... Just checking in... I am still keeping up with you guys, but I am just not updating my blog like I should. Life is good, hair is growing, and I am just letting them do what they do. Anywho, here are some pics..
OK my dear locsters, if anyone has a really, and I mean REALLY good clarifying shampoo, please tell me. Since I work out and sweat A LOT in my head, I am wondering if that is what is contributing to my seemingly always dirty scalp. I never had this problem before my workout became so intense. I have tried my old reliables and it is not working for me.
Question two, what do you think would be a good shampoo to rinse paint out of locs? I am going to a HUGE paint party next weekend where they throw paint all over you and I just need to be prepared. The locks aren't getting under a swim cap. I guess I could try and find a really tight loc sock? Thoughts?
Yeah, it's me. I need to do better by my blog, but being a new wife, working, and just enjoying life, I have just not been the little blogger that I use to be. Nothing new to report really (that line sounds so cliche), but my locks are doing their thing and GROWING. Here are a couple of pics I took recently... Anywho, stay loved and stay locked!
I keep saying I am going to do better about posting, but being newly married and working odd hours is just not allowing me to update like I want. Anyway, just checking in to say hello to you guys. Nothing has changed really other than my hair is growing. OH, that previous color test I went through actually worked out. The you can definitely see the red, not as bright, but in all honesty, it's actually just right. Can't really see it in the picture, but definitely up close and in the sun. Anywho, the journey continues!
Well, I am happy to say that my hair is really trying to do its thing. I got my hair retied this past weekend, and I also got a style. You can really tell how much growth you have after a fresh reti. Here is a peek of the style...
It has been a min since I did a product review and mainly because I have been really going the simple route in regards to taking care of my locks. However, I have noticed that my locks have been terribly thirsty and my EOs were not working. I also recently colored my hair and I know the key is to make sure your locks get plenty of love and moisture. I wanted to try Dewdrops mayo-protein recipe, but I needed something that I could use on a daily basis.
So anyway, my hubby had Organic's Hair Mayo Leave In treatment in the bathroom, so I gave it a try. OMG... my dry and brittle ends that seemed to want to pop off are LOVING me now. My locks are feeling sooo much better. It is an instant repair and I just feel like they are alive. I also applied it to my scalp as well so that I could feed the new growth. It's a really lite liquid and it's not heavy AT ALL. It's not creamy and it's nothing you have to rub in or anything. It's as if the locks instantly soak up the solution. To apply, I just added a dab to my hand, and worked it from my roots to the end and just squeezed to make sure that my locks were saturated. I actually use this when I do the twist outs. My crinkles are holding and this is even after a workout. I even sat in the sauna. I figured using this in place of holding mousse would be much better, and it is. So far so good for me and have been using it for a week. Check it out and if you do, let me know what you guys think.

I have gone to get my hair dyed twice PROFESSIONALLY since I have had sisterlocks and I can't seem to get that 'red' going. Do you guys think I would need to have my hair lifted? I so don't want to do that. I went to get my hair dyed today and my stylist and I just KNEW we had the color we wanted… After being rinsed out, nothing compared to what we thought we would see. I am disappointed because it’s almost as if it’s not meant to be. We were BOTH stumped. So, for any of you who have dyed your hair, and it looks similar to the picture of my hair with the color application on AFTER being washed out, please tell me what you did. We are supposed to try it again on the 16th, but something is telling me that it might be too soon to do that. I don’t know. Help :(
Seems like it has been a bit longer. Nonetheless, I hit my two year mark, so I am expecting my hair growth to just take off at this point. I am still loving my hair, not doing much to it, and just letting it be. Anyway, here is a quick shot. Hope you guys are doing well!
