There was the whole doubt in latching bit. And then I found a new washing routine. I made a funk-less ACV rinse but then came to the realization that putting ACV in the hair too often was no bueno. I didn't latch/twist for a month and let my hair freeform for a bit. Which was WONDERFUL and so I've decided to not only complete ditch latching period but adopt semi-free forming. I will not always re-twist after washing. I will let my locs do their own thing and twist when I feel like it. And then I dyed one of my locs purple. Not only was it a total waste but it taught me to not color my hair anymore without a professional. THEN I went to my loctician for the first time in 7 months and fell in love all over again. I have decided to get my locs professional done at least every month or as needed.
I have also learned that my locs do a wonderful job in styles. Especially for my active work-out schedule. And so I curled them but did not finger comb the curls out.
You can't see them but I used two rubber bands to pull a few locs up on one side.
Looks like candy curls, uh? Except that one straight loc. There's always one...ha!
Actually, I had a few straight locs. I pinned them with bobby pins and viola!
One day mine will be a long as my homie's.
I am so ridiculously in love with locs that it don't make no sense. You can tell veteran loc'ers are used to the questions and admiration but me? Oh man!! I am forever staring at other peoples' locs and getting all giddy when someone asks about mine. In.sane.
When the curls go away, I will do some comparison posts.
Until then....stay beautiful. I tried to be all artistic with that shot. HA!! #FAIL
