2nd Appointment-Day 32

Ohmigoodness, I loooooooove the hair salon. It's a certain kind of peace that I have never felt in hair salons when I was a permie that I feel now. I can't really explain it. I think it's because I love my loctician so much. I know, I know. I'm bragging about her....again. I so can't help it.


Ms. Tonya looooved how my hair was looking after a month's progress. She wasn't even disgusted with the dandruff like I was. She just scratched my head. For a good 4 minutes. I was in heaven.

And then she washed it. For a good 10 minutes. I was in heaven.

And then she got started. We watched "A Family That Preys" and I forgot how good that movie was. The 6 of us were in their screaming and laughing and just having a good ole' time. And then she put me under the dryer for a good 40 minutes. I spent my time blog hopping on the Berry and reading my "Blogging for Dummies" book [NOTE: Am I not obsessed with blogging/blogs or what?]

40 minutes passed and she gets to removing the silver clips and moisturizing my hair. I anxiously try and take a peek at my hair and she keeps me a head-lock.

Literally....my loctician is a mess, yall.

And then she tells me to close my eyes ,grabs my hand and leads me to the mirror.

"Open them," she says.

And this is what I saw:






Here's a texture shot...



Can you believe this? I mean this was my hair last month.



It looks completely different, right? And so much longer! I loooove it. They are mighty small and as I mentioned before, that is my preference. They almost look like Sister Locks and when they get fuzzy (because I KNOW they will), they won't look so bad.

She used a different method this time. I STARTED off with comb coils but from this point on she will use the palm rolling method to do my locs. And yep....they are officially locs now.

They are just a little too thin. I guess they'll puff up???? I don't know. I was too overwhelmed to ask many questions. I made an appointment for 3 weeks from now instead of 4. Waiting 4 was torture.

I'm excited!

Gorgeous!

They should puff up and shrink a bit(in length) as the hair condenses into a loc. Then they'll slim down again. Just sit back in wonder at the amazing evolution your hair is going to experience!

What in the world??!! Your hair is growing so fast! What are you eating or drinking? You hair will be to your chin and shoulders in a matter of months at the rate you're going...WOW!!!

As for the thickness or as you said thinness of your locks. I promise they will thicken up. They're still coming into their own. Patience....

You are going to have a beautiful head of locs when they thicken up! They won't stay too thin. As the hair actually starts to lock into itself, they will get fatter. Your hair is doing wonderfully!
