Yep today is my birthday, and my locs are 3 months away from the 2 years mark... I cannot complain. I celebrated over the weekend by going out with 3 of my favorite ladies. The hair is a day old perm rod set (I sweated a lot of the curl out with my tipsy dancing).
I washed my locs last night... no big deal. Then I tried something new... I set my locs on perm rods. Those damned things hurt! Seriously I just took them out ~10 minutes ago, and my scalp is TENDER. I like the tighter curl that they produce, and can't wait to incorporate the resulting curls(will be doing another set next week) into my birthday look.
I can't say that there was much too it, I used gray/pink rods on damp locs. No gel or setting product, and NO HEAT. I really do despise my hooded dryer, but it serves it's purpose. I'm thinking my hair looks like curly fries.
