Month six - W O W!!!

**6 month pics**

OK!!! What! 6 months! CRAZY!!! and Amazing :-)

Six month hair stuff:
- ok, as always.....I LOOOOOOOOVE my hair! just thought I'd let you know!
- my hair is still getting thick *check that 3rd picture*
- see that last pic? yeah well I haven't done anything to my roots...and don't plan on it! ha! I'm letting my hair just.be. and it is wonderful!
- I'm still using all natural hair stuff *that coconut oil is my absolute favorite*, except when I use a clarifying shampoo :(
- Lush BIG is still one of my favorites, but I recently started back using my mop c hydrating shampoo. I used this stuff when I rocked my curls because it is 1. organic 2. hydrating 3. sulfate-free 4. preserves color (which was important to me since I had platinum blonde hair!)  5. it has mango, black currant & orange - the cirtus-y scent is perfect after my morning workouts!
- ***BIG UPDATE*** ok, so recently I've noticed my hair is getting stiffer and harder *yippee* my hair is starting to condense! WOOP!!! it's so cool just to see the transformations my hair goes through, seemingly over night!
- the condensation isn't up the whole loc, just yet, but it is hard  in some places and not as flexible as the rest of the loc!!! I was super excited to notice this cool change in my hair! Also the tips of my locs are definitely sealing and getting hard

So that's it! Just some quick updates!

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. Wow...great progress girl... Your locs remind me so much of mine. Our hair texture is similar. I need 2 be more like you and let my locs be. Some of mine are very subborn.

  2. hey calimama!!! You need a blog! lol or some pictures!! :-)

    My hair is just chillin! I do such minimal, if any styling lol! I pull one side up with a clip or bobby pin and call it a day.

    It really is quite libertating just letting my hair be :-)

  3. I know I need a blog....Im just to lazy to get it going..lol...I have pixs on Fotki under the name Calimama check me out if you get a chance. I agree it's very liberating to have care free hair. I absolutely love it! Wake up fluff and mist and thats it!...lol...I've been using Lush BIG shampoo. I really, really, like it but it's expensive. Plus they ship it here and that makes it even higher. So I don't know if I'll continue to use it. Do you condition? I do sometimes, but not every time I wash. Keep posting I'll be back!

  4. Oh yeah...I made my own nappy loc latching tool out of a wal mart yarn needle. I can't believe I did it....lol..it's metal I made they eye bigger and cut the length. And only $1.43..compared to $15.00 nappy loc tool. My yarn needle and the nappy loc tool look almost the same: )

  5. You know what, I started using other shampoos when my sample (finally) ran out of Lush Big lol! But I am going this weekend to get the tub because that shampoo really, truly was the best for my hair! I say if your hair loves it, keep using it!

    My tool i made I stopped using after I tried a re-ti with it the second time loL! I just used my fingers, plus it was way faster!
