Happy 2 months, locs!!

So I didn't realize that Valentine's Day officially made my locs 2 months old.

Awww! It's shocking really. Each month is a milestone. I remember thinking the same thing when I first went natural. I feel so lucky to go through this experience. Many people will never see the amazement that is self-transformation. I've been blessed to experience it with my hair and through weight loss.

Ahhh....and I can't forget the "mental transformation" I went through in my Africana Studies major.

Transformation in any form takes discipline, drive and patience but the rewards are innumerable.

Enough of my motivational preaching.....check out how the locs are looking after 2 months. I took this pictures while creating a make-up look for Clumps of Mascara's FOTD Friday.

How cool is this view?

I say that are shaping up pretty nicely. Later this week I will re-twist them myself just so they can stay looking nice. I need to re-schedule my next appointment since I accidentally scheduled it in the time that I will be in Los Angeles (Raye, got your email...see you at the Grove!).

Oh wait...check out me and my cousin at our friend's birthday party this past weekend. I am going to do a feature on her beautiful natural hair later.

Loves it!

Peace and loc've.
