It’s a week later!! I actually had intentions to update a few days ago but with the holidays going on and traveling I just got a little behind. I hope that you all had a very happy holiday season!
The comb coils are…still a mess if you ask me. LOL, I realize that I was perhaps a little over-dramatic with the last update. I guess it’s because I keep forgetting that growing locs is a progress…and they won’t necessarily be “perfectly neat” ALL the time.
I get it now….thanks yall for your encouraging words.
Here’s what I’m looking like now:
I’ve learned to get over the fuzziness. I really can’t do any thing about it. My plan is to do some re-twisting before I head to Atlanta in a few days. I will also cleanse my scalp with Sea Breeze because my scalp has been itching like crazy! And I won’t even talk about the dandruff. I would love a GOOD wash but I know if I do that, the comb coils will drop.
I have finally figured out how to keep the sweat off of my face when I work-out!
Duh! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this earlier. My sweatband has been instrumental in helping keep my hair drier when I work-out. Which is extremely important because before my coils would literally be soaking. Glad I eliminated that frustration because I was feeling just AWFUL about it.
So my plan for the upcoming week:
I will use Q-tips soaked in Seabreeze and
gently massage the scalp
Massage scalp with hair serum
I am still using my Tangy Grape hair oil!
I can’t get enough of it.
Re-twist coils that are un-coiling
I will use 100% aloe vera gel to do this.
Bottom line: I need to do a better job at taking care of my hair. This has always been a struggle for me. I loooove my hair but I have never spent a lot of time maintaining it–even when I had a perm. I vow to spend more time on my hair and caring for it more. I can’t expect to have beautifully healthy locs if I don’t DO anything to promote that.
So….Imma do better. 🙂
Peace and loc’ve.
Someone asked what Sisterlocks were…..check out this site. Beautiful, uh? It’s a way to loc loose hair with a tool. They can take hours to do but are amazingly versatile. I would have liked to start locing this way but I’m learning to love my comb coils more and more every day.
