I really dont like talking about myself so i will keep this short. Ive loved locks since i was about 9 and back combed my first ones with the help of dread head HQ's kit at age 12. What a waste of money!! i wish i could take a bat to the owner of that site's face!
Next i went to a local Jamaican salon and had my hair twisted for about $150-$200. the lady doing this said she had lots of experience with doing this on white people and taht the method works. I was told not to wash my hair for something like 3 months. Well needless to say it was all in vain. The twists came out and i was back to having straight (dirty) hair.
Back combed again not using any wax which worked out just fine until i had to get my first job. CUT. and have been doing neglect/natural ever since. I cut once more for work a couple years ago and have just kept my hair straight letting it grow in the hopes of getting a job that can support me which allows locks. I have finally found such a position as a trucker. Thank the lord!
So i am back to not using shampoo/conditioner or combing my hair. To me the natural way is the only way to go. It just feels right, like god himself put the knots where they should go. But at the end of the day its all just hair, i dont care how long it takes to lock or even if it locks at all (even though it does) i just love long hair and not doing anything more than washing it to take care of it. The result is nice healthy locks full of life. Thick ones, thin ones, flat ones, ones with loops i love them all!!
