Washing 'de locs!
Yesterday I washed my hair. Yaaay! Washing my hair is always a nice little treat. I'm trying to tweak my routine so that I can do it more often. I would LOVE to wash once a week.
Does anyone with locs do that? Hmm...
Anywhoovers....so my Oyin Handmade shipment hadn't come in yet (it came today...HA!) so I picked up some shampoo and conditioner that was a STAPLE when I first went natural back in like....'05.
Yeah, SLS and 'cones and parabens galore but my hair has ALWAYS loved this stuff. I used the conditioner virtually everyday when I did wash-n-go's. I wanted to give it a whirl on the locs.
First I scratched my head like mad and brought all of the dandruff to the surface.
It's not a pretty job but it has to get done.
And then conditioner....
There is something awfully cool about conditioner filled locs. I kinda love it.
I then braided the locs down and sat under the dryer for like an hour.
I shall post results in the next day or so. The loc'ies celebrate their 11th month b-day!!
