So... I decided to...

Leave my hair just like it is. For now. I'm not going to comb my locs out this summer. Or any summer. Combing would take more time than I really wanna spend. When (or if) I decide to start a new set of locs, I'm going to cut them off. A fellow blogger, Nessisary, and I have been talking about this for a few weeks now. She suggested I grow my hair out (free form) for a few months then cut the locked part off. This would make more sense to me. I would have a couple of inches of new growth so my afro wouldn't be super short. She suggested free forming for a year but I'm not sure how long I could go without retwisting. But it might be easier for the hair to lock again if it's not too long anyway (just my assumption). It needs to be long enough that it's not easily unraveled. So to those who were worried about me unlocking my locs, don't worry. It's not gonna happen. I may cut them at a later date to restart them but not any time soon.

I AM ready to cut the extra head off of my two (and 3or 4) headed dragons.  I have rubber bands on most of them and I'm really ready to take them off.  I know it's not time and I'm being very impatient.  Oh well.

Til next time, thanks for reading. ;)


  1. Your hair looks great! I'm glad you decided against cutting them off.


  2. Thanks!
    Actually I wasn't going to cut them; I was gonna comb them out so I wouldn't have to cut them. I may cut them off in the future (to start another set) but I don't see that happening anytime soon.

  3. Thanks again for the shoutout Mrs. Honey! I feel ya with the rubberbands, I'm anxious to take off a couple of mine but I want to leave them on there for another month or two. Some have just naturally popped off and I found that the particular loc(s) didn't need them anymore, which was nice, but unless that happens with the others I am letting them be :)
