From June 22nd- day one till NOW, um, July 3rd... it's been a week and a half since I've had my WHOLE head dreaded.. and I am lovin' every minute of it.
I even got a COMPLIMENT on my locs today at IHop!
Washing time is cut 3/4.. I only wash my hair like once a week, with about 2 Tbsp baking soda dissolved in about a quart of water scrubbed into scalp. I rinse it with clean water and then pour over a mix of about 2 Tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar with about 4 Tbsp Sea Salt dissolved.. Let that soak infor about 10 minutes (then I wash my body etc)... then I rinse with clean water and squeeze out the excess.. Then Iwrap it up in a towel for a bit.. then take it down and shake.
Right now they are still semi-frizzy, and have all sorts of lovely loops, lumps, bumps, and swirls.. Some stick out in odd places, and some are flatish. I love every one of them.
Ideveloped bangs as a result of this..
And have grown feathers :D
I am still awaiting the arrivalof my tam fromEtsy, and stillworking on making some more clay beads (this time I will NOT use Mod Podge to Gloss them) *** my efforts resulted in very sticky beads!**
I sometimes sleep with a bandannaover them, sometimes I don't.
Ioccasionally spray them with lemon juice when I'm outside to lighten them some.
I have a few wood and glass beads in them as of now, and currently theyare pulled back in alow pony....
I am in search of new ways to wear them.... Up, etc..
Also looking intoother means of decoration and dying.. with henna...... etc.
Potential YouTube video coming soon!
