Guess what?

Yes, I have switched it up again and combed out my locs that were progressing quite nicely. Why did I do it you ask? Well I restarted them using another method. I know you are probably thinking that this chick has hair ADD but honestly, I don't. I am 100% sure that I am locing. but the twists weren't feasible for my lifestyle. Quite a few of them had actually started to loc towards the ends, but the roots were another story. I'm a frequent washer, at least once a week and more often than not, more than once a week. I have scalp issues so washing or at least wetting my hair is a MUST. I just didn't like having to deal with the constant unraveling every time I washed so I decided to start them over using braids. Took me 3 days and I just finished up yesterday. Honestly, I don't like the look as much as I did the twists but this is definitely more manageable for me. (I washed as soon as I finished up with my last braid) Had a shampoo bar that I just had to try. Anyway, it felt lovely to wash and still have my braids intact, no unraveling, no need to re-twist or retighten. Loving it. I just want them to get that Older look too them because they are considerably more "scalpy" looking than my twists were. Anyway, I guess they were born on inauguration Day! Whoo Hoo!

HIL Disease is a real problem

I am suffering from HIL (hand in loc) disease. I mean it's a real issue for me. I can sit and play in my hair for hours on end without even realizing it. I find myself. twirling, pulling massaging and doing all kind of things to my hair. Impatience is another thing that I must overcome. I'm just ready for my hair to loc already. I'm lucky in the sense that I believe with my hair texture, it won't take long for me to loc. I'm guessing by 4 or 5 months I should have progressed fairly well.

My poor babies

I have been neglecting my hair so. I almost became a semi freeformer as I haven't had the time to re-twist. I'm not sure if I mentioned this or not but I redid my twist locs on Christmas day, Took me three days to complete. I was satisfied with them overall but I wanted to make my parting neater. Anyway. I rolled it up using pipe cleaners and had beautiful curls while I was away. Needless to say, my head was itching something terrible so as soon as I came home, I washed it. That was about a week ago. I re-twisted the top and sides but never got around to the back so ya'll know I was looking a hot mess. Last night, I finally got around to finishing my re-twist and now I'm sitting here in some pipe cleaners(make shift curlers) wondering what the end result will be. I also oiled my scalp with coconut oil in an attempt to combat some of the itchies due to dryness.
