I trimmed my locs!
The visit to my loctician was amazing of course. I'll be back to see her in a few weeks as I plan to do a complete salon feature. You know, interview her, take pictures and maybe do a video. I just found out that she has a Facebook page. I want to wake it up a bit so I'll be bugging Mrs. LaTonya soon about ways I can help her do that. You know...since I do undercover social media marketing and all. *pops collar*
But anyway, I got my locs trimmed and I couldn't be happier. They really feel like a new set of locs and I couldn't thank my loctician enough for recommending the trim. Here's what happened...
I know when you think of trim you think of cutting some length, right? Wellllls, I got my locs pruned. I've heard of this term from several loc rockers. Of course you have your radicals that think that pruning the locs is a no no. You know me. Do whatever works for YOU. Pruning my locs has given my locs such a cleaner and frizz-free look. I've been dealing with frizzy locs for so long that I considered the loose hair to be the norm. My loctician assured me that the frizzy hair will not loc. And she's right. I mean, after 2 years shouldn't it have already loc'd anyway?
Look at the difference pruning made...
I was floored when she asked me take a peek. My locs just felt...better. And looked better. Don't get me wrong, I actually had no problem with the frizz but I love how much better they look. Mrs. LaTonya took her time and pruned each loc. She also trimmed a few.
Don't think I'm sad about loosing the fuzz because I'm not. It was time. My locs look much neater and I am so so happy about it.
And I did some photo editing to this one but I think it looks so cool.
I'm a happy kiddo right now. I found a video on YouTube that goes into detail about what pruning is. My loctician took a different approach. She used professional scissors for one. She recommended that I do this when I felt the need to do so. For some it is twice a year and others maybe only once a year.
I'll be back with a post on my hair detox. Let's just say I feel like I have a new set of locs. My loctician revived them. I love her.
