|Last time as a loose Natural|
|Locs right after install|
*My first wash was surprisingly easy. I bundled them into for sections, braided the sections, and then I went for broke, scrubbing my scalp for all I was worth.
*Then there was the first time retightening... I washed with a stocking cap, and then ended up posting on NP crying that I thought I'd ruined them. This was went I found my loctician, and man has she been a godsend.
* I've dyed them twice.
* I've learned that I stick at trying to style my own hair.
*I've learned that + tender scalp = whole new kind of pain
During the first 2 months I wasn't sure that I was going to make it, but when I did that first wash with no unraveling, I knew that it was the beginning of something wonderful. So today I'm celebrating one year of loving my locs in spite of their desire to do as they please, and also one year of having the patience to let them.
As a gift I'm going to wash them before work lol. I'll do something better after Christmas.
