Hair... Sisterlocks Update

So I thought I'd shock you all by writing TWO posts on one day (lol) after not writing for ages... AND I thought I'd switch things up by actually writing about  - wait for it.... yes.... HAIR! Lol.

I've had mad bunching since December(ish) and it drove me nuts... but after looking at Naturally Sophia and Clouds in My Coffee blogs, I decided to undo some of the badly bunched locks (as far as the bunched bit) and then plait them to the ends. This resolved that issue but I am sure there must be a better way... OTHER THAN SNIPPING  AWAY AT THE BUNCHED BIT.  Comments welcome of course. Why did I undo/replait them? Because the big fat middles/ends (where the bunching was) couldn't make it through the teeny tiny roots of the lock... so bunching is not a problem if you're palm rolling or twisting, but it's a nightmare if you're interlocking like you do with SLs.

Michelle has been doing my maintenance while I concentrated on growing the baby - many thanks! I've kept up the d-i-y on my edges but who knows when I'll have the energy to take on full retightening sessions again. Maybe in June...or July... or maybe September.... 2012... *grin*

Approaching my 1 year anniversary - gosh time flies! My niece (the one whose hair I envy) pointed out yesterday that I made it past 6 months and that made me laugh because HRH would've bet money that I wouldn't stick with this 'hairstyle' - but I did and I have so there :P (EVEN WHEN I DIDN'T LIKE HOW THEY LOOKED and my hair was falling out!)

Enough chit chat - I'll save that for the official anniversary post. Here are some recent pics. Still looks a bit messy to me- but fuller than when they were first installed (which is VERY good) rofl.

Later!

BajanLily they look amazing! I can't believe how full they are. Now you have me wondering if I should have done these instead of traditional locs.
