1.5 years and lighter locs!

That's cool! :-) So the close of April will be the end of my 19th month of having a head of fab locs! yay! I love them more and more each day! I've recently been toying with the idea of what it would be like to have my head of curls back, but then I think about all the time I've invested in my locs and snap out of it. quick! I love my hair and can't wait to see what the rest of this year and many more bring!  

So lately I've totally been missing my lighter hair and want to dye my hair but don't want a head full of one color locs! So I was just going to use Sun-In like I did last year, BUT it hasn't been that sunny and warm enough for me yet to go lounge outside and let the sun lighten my hair. Good thing for John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Controlled Lightening Spray!

I LOOOOOOOVE this stuff!!!! All I had to do was spray on and apply heat to activate the formula. Since it's heat activated, I used my blow dryer for like 2-3 minutes after I sprayed it on.  I got it two week's ago and applied it twice that day. I saw a slight change and decided I would do it twice a day for a week. *note - all this heat on my hair made my scalp DRY! so after a couple days of using this spray, I made a nice oil conditioning spray with coconut oil and added Jamaican Black Castor Oil to my shampoo to restore some much needed moisture to my locs!*

Anyways, after using it for a week, see below for the FABULOUS results!!!!!!!!!!!

I love it and can't wait for the sun to get really hot again so I can use Sun-In to go even lighter!
