What's New?

Hello loc enthusiasts. What's new? Well I'll tell you...
MY SON!!! He arrived three weeks ago, healthy and happy.  As for me, I'm recovering well and settling into to motherhood.  No glamorous Beyonce-inspired public appearances for me though.  I'm just glad I manage to shower daily.  But I look forward to getting back to my old self soon.

It's a good thing I doubled up on loc maintenance during December and early January because I haven't done a thing to my hair since I went in labor.  By the end of this week, I hope to retwist my hair BEFORE washing it? Why? If I washed it first, separating it would take forever.  Instead, I will mist my hair with water mixed with a teaspoon of conditioner and retwist it.  A few days later I will wash it and retwist with my usual shea butter/oil/gel mixture.  

I must admit, my locs don't look too bad.  They're firming up nicely and I've accepted their fuzzy appearance. With a little makeup, jewelry and a nice outfit (and I haven't worn any of these lately), my locs look rather stylish.  


  1. Congrats on being a new mom! you're hair is amazing! It has grown so fast! And the beauty of locs is "doing something to them" is optional. Be free :-)

  2. Hey, I joined your blog as it's mighty special read through someone's journey. You have inspiring locs that look beautiful.

    Many congratulations for you and your new family!
