2 years: longer locs, red locs

Honestly, time FLEWWWWW by!!! 2 years! 2 years!?!!?!? awesome!!! 

 I know I haven't written on here since May, but I've definitely been taking pictures ever so often to chronicle any cool changes my locs have gone through!  Basically, I've combined all of my locs around my edges since they were a bit too thin.  Also, I haven't twisted my roots or latched my roots since July 2010 O_o wow right!! But I do LOVE it!

Let's see what else, oh, now I can throw my locs up in a myriad of cute ponytails and updos due to gaining some length, finally! :-)

My locs got super blonde this Summer by using the lightening spray and for my locs' 2nd bday, I dyed my locs two different dark shades of red and brown!  I used L'Oreal Superior Preference in 4R and 4W.  I dyed my top half the more richer red color and the bottom half I dyed the dark brown with a red tint.  I left both colors on for 45 minutes - I have NEVER used an entire bottle of hair dye, let alone TWO whole bottles of hair dye!  I was definitely rinsing my locs for over an hour and even rinsed them again tonight for an hour to ensure ALL dye was completely removed.

Oh, also to commemorate 2 years of locing I wrapped one of my dreads in the back in red, gold, and green wire - I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyways, enough chatter - see below for pics of my hair!! Look at that comparison from day one, one year and two years!!!!

Ciao and thanks as always for reading and stopping by!!
