Yes, I did and I don't feel guilty about it either.
In fact, it was a bit liberating. Don't get it twisted, I'm not thinking of combing out ALL of my locs. In fact, the title is misleading because I only combed out a good 2 inches of a loc. And the only reason I did this was because I was combining 2 locs and needed to 2-strand twist alllll the way down. I've got enough split locs and am trying to avoid forming any more.
So I picked and I combed and before I knew it, I had combed out this much hair...
Awww! I felt all nostalgic rubbing the fro hair between my fingers. I kinda missed it. I say "kinda" because those who remember me during my huge fro days know that I never really liked doing my hair. It just took too much time.
Look at hair I lost just from combing out that little bit.
Yikes. And look at all of that lint. I was amazed, to be honest. Seeing that made me appreciate my locs even more. The fact that they don't shed and can trap lint in them is kinda cool. I mean, the lint itself isn't "cool" but...y'all know what I'm sayin' right?
I had my fun and 2-strand twisted two locs together.
I'm not diggin' this combining/marrying process. My hair seems to be fuzzier than ever. I shouldn't complain about it but ugh... The good news is, washing the hair makes the married locs form together even better. So even though I washed not too long ago, maybe I'll wash again. Hmm....
