"Enjoy this length while you can. Sooner or later your locs will be so long that it will take more effort and time to style them."
Okay, yeah....I can see how that's true.
Before I put them up in a style I washed and re-twisted them. I washed with Heads and Shoulders 2-in-1. Thank you Rayna for this suggestion! I was afraid about the SLSs and parabens but at this point I'm more concerned about keeping the dandruff/itchies down to a minimum so who really cares about a paraben or two. I'll do a formal review on that but it was a pleasant experience. The locs weren't stripped and check this---no build-up!!!!
I palm rolled, clipped, sat and under the dryer for 30 minutes or so. It's my Mommy in that picture. Hi Mommy!
I'm having a "before anyone else gets to the office" photos hoot. Don't mind me.
So glad to be back to palm rolling! I am also using Organics Twist and Loc gel. I'll do a review on this too. I've been using this gel for years. It is great! I won't be using any butter based/creamy products anymore. It's either this stuff or aloe vera gel which is just as good!
I am soooo not a phone talker. So when I actually have to talk to people I am always a wee bit annoyed. Close friends: that don't mean y'all so don't trip. LOL!
Later that evening I got my first style. You ready for this...it's bad ass!
Yeah, y'all did know I had skills like that, did you? LOL..lemme stop lyin'. I most certainly did NOT do this. The lovely Corline hooked me up with this style. Look how intricate it is. We've got basket weaving in the back..
Twists on each side...
A pony tail above the basket weave...
A classy wave swoop in the front which can also be re-arranged to a hump or bang...
Home girl hooked me up, did she not? I've hailed her as my regular 'last minute' loc stylist. She created this on her own. Extremely skilled, uh? I think I'm going to be seeing her again this Friday. I could get used to this.
