Fixing Bunched Locs

So yesterday I was playing in my hair, as per usual, and came across a few bumpy, thick locs! At first i thought, maybe it's budding, but upon closer inspection I saw that my locs were all bunched *sad face* I didn't know how I was going to fix them, but I knew they were going to get fixed! So, I took a paper clip and unfolded it and went to work! Below is the progress:

These are close-ups of a couple of my bunched locs:

After I picked the hair out with a paperclip, this is what my hair looked like:

These are my locs, interlocked back together:

It was crazy to see how much my hair has grown! Plus, it was nice to play in my loose hair, even if it were only for a few minutes!

So that's it! Still loving my hair, but ofcourse and excited to see two more at the front, top of my head looking like they are trying to loc, FABULOUS!

Bantu Knots Comparison

So I just did my hair for the evening in bantu knots and noticed as I was doing them, I had to put alot more in since my hair was getting real thick! *happy face* I decided to take a picture and was elated to find I had taken a picture of my bantu knots in October! Below are the comparison shots:

This is from 10/25:

This one is from 12/15 - what a difference!

My hair is definitely thickening up and I'm all too thrilled! I love this style because when I wake up, I just undo the knots and have cute little crinkly locs! :-)

2 months!

So! It's officially 2 months *grin* I am LOVING my hair each and every day! My hair REALLY fits me! I wish I started sooner, but of course! Each day I look in the mirror and smile at the progress my hair is making! I love the fuzzies! LOVE them! They give each loc character!

Day 1, 2 weeks, 2 months - back of head comparison

I am excited that my hair is filling in and getting thicker because I can do different styles! When I first got my hair done, I could only pin it up with a bobby pin or curl it with my curlers.  Now I can gather the front and pull it back and it has volume, lol! (It's the little things that make me happy!)

So since my last post, I haven't used any products on my hair and haven't done a retightening! Over the past 7 days I've washed/rinsed my hair in the morning and I LOVE the results! I think I will continue to do this! It makes my hair fuller and I love the little curlies at the ends of my locs :-)

I think I'm going to go through the end of the year with out a re-ti, or product(Sea salt loc tightening spray)! My hair just likes water, so it should be cool! Um, that's about it for now! No budding or anything like that to report, but all in due time!
