Lock paw

Lately, I have not been able to keep my hands out of my hair!!  I have lock paw like I did when I first started locking.  In doing so, I have un-combined some of the locs that I combined when I last retwisted.  I know, crazy, right?!  The rubber bands and 3 headed dragons were driving me insane.  I've gotten used to the two strand twist look but the rubber bands have got to go!!  I'm not even sure what I was trying to accomplish with all the combining I did.  I think it was for thicker locs but only a few were really thin and needed to be combined.  But oh well, I've un-combined some of them but not all.  I didn't realize just how much combining I did in the first place because I still have a lot of rubber bands left.  :(

I've also noticed some 'bumps' on my locs.  Do you have these?
I don't know what these bumps are.  Not all of my locs have them but a lot of them do.  Are these buds? I never really paid much attention to the stages my locs went through other than when they were mature, so I have no idea what buds look like.  Here's another picture:
I will probably wash my hair tomorrow.  I'm thinking about doing bantu knots so I can have some loose curls.  I have a job fair to go to Friday and I want my hair to look nice.  I'll definitely keep you posted.

Til next time, thanks for reading.  Be blessed.


  1. I have one or two of those, it isn't really budding i just look at it is a kind of bump or weird dent in the lock lol.

  2. I have a ton of those bumps. Some locs have them the entire length of the loc. Some locs don't have any. Oh well, it adds character. LOL!

  3. a LOT of my locs have the bumps and lumps on them. no clue what causes them, but i love it! it makes my hair look more like locs and less like perfectly uniforn braids.
