Just a quick update…I’m so pleased to write that I’ve been having some good hair days lately. I’m not sure if it’s the second year of confidence with my locs, how I’m feeling about my image in general, inevitably approaching the half-century mark, or the fact that my hair is getting longer and fuller…I’m so in love with my locs!
Even though my “brace face” is here to stay (a while longer), my hair even makes wearing braces more tolerable. I missed my last adjustment, so I can kiss the possibility of removal goodbye in time for my 49th birthday. 😩
Thankfully, my locs continue to evolve. I’m noticing how solid the tips are now. They used to be very curly and soft. They have firmed, stiffened even, and appear more mature.
My locs are definitely thick, like a bushy ‘fro…I love the look! I can be ready in five minutes no matter where I’m going. My hair is never an excuse for tardiness or failures to show. I’m where I need to be…always.
Here I am with my cousin, Randy, on a recent cruise to Mexico. We had a ball!
My latest reti finds me happy and my hair healthy. April is doing a splendid job maintaining my retis every six weeks. I remain grateful to my friend, Marsha, for introducing me to her.
The Back of my Locs – post-retightening session on 10/15/17. Getting some hang time now! I’m still only shampooing every two weeks with peppermint Castile soap and every other day spritz of Rose water.
Two more post-reti pics:
I wear my hair styled forward, covering my broad forehead, on most days. The style above is surely a different look, and I’ll probably gravitate toward that look once my hair gets too long to wear bangs.
My Sisterlocks still remain the best hair decision EVER! Until next time…
