4-Day Check In..

I just realized....

I won't be updating this blog THAT often. I mean how much activity can my hair go through? Locing is a process that doesn't happen over night so don't expect daily updates, people. :) 2-3 posts a week at the most. But if you are so desirous of hearing me ramble you know there's always Clumps of Mascara and Rantings of a Rebella!

I don't intend to only talk about my locing process in this blog though. I'll be ranting on other topics like:

-Why I hate the word dreadlocs.
-Why I love my natural hair.
-Why I could care less if you have a perm or not (do you!).
-Why I get sick of people saying that natural hair is unprofessional.
-Why I've never worn a weave/wig.
-Why I think natural hair is a repellent for a lot of Black men.
-Why hair is such a issue for Black women, in general.
-The excuses Black women make about why they won't go natural.

...all kinds of ramblings. And while most will focus on "natural hair and its beauty", I have to say....I am not against perms. I, personally, will never put one in my head again but that's just me. Brown ladies are beautiful regardless how our hair looks.

So yeah....that's that. I thought I'd do a quick 4-Day Check In....


Why is my hair so bare here? Yikes! I'm not diggin' this. And that coil with the gold tip is the one that is usually soaked AFTER a strenuous work-out. That baby coil has survived thus far but it will only be a matter of time....

And then here's the back...


Look at those crazy fine hairs. I know they will cause me some trouble as I get deeper into the locin' process. And look at the one coil unraveling!


Yikes! I've since re-twisted it but I am going to hate having to do this after every work-out.

And..bring on the fuzzies!



I've been warned about the attack of the fuzzies (thanks Kia) but didn't know that they would arrive so early. I didn't even pull out the WELCOME mat. LOL. My loctician has said "Leave your hair alone"...but I can't help it. I just--have to--re-twist some of these.

And as for as moisturizing....the gloss/oil is working perfectly. No itchies or anything!

Has it been 2 months yet?

Until next time...

Peace and loc've.

don't worry about the bare spots. they will fill in. mine still are and my locs are 3yrs old. relax about all that stuff and just let your hair do what it's gonna do.

i hate the term dreadlocks too. ain't a damn thing dreadful about my locs! I can't wait for your rants!

I've just recently decided to go natural and am definitely going to do locs. Since my hair is already short (about 1 inch) I'm waiting to let it grow out naturally. I'm looking forward to following your journey.

The bare areas will fill in once your hair starts growing... Your locks are coming along nicely!

If I workout after a retightening my scalp gets fuzzier quicker since I'm sweating so..it's all good though...

I definitely look forward to reading about the topics you've mentioned!
