Taking Consultant Karen’s advice to the fullest, I spent 1.5 hours or so of my time on Saturday evening putting my hair into loc knots. I was not allowing myself to be deterred given the short length of my hair. In some instances, I used a rubber band to keep the lock knots in place. I used no product– just water in a spray bottle to dampen my hair. (I followed Kalia-Dewdrop and or Kreyola‘s tutorials… [Kalia-dewdrop’s video really helps!).
What resulted was a very curly ‘do. I loved it.
I received compliments all day. My hair was so bouncy. I missed the curly look and am glad my hair is out of the “too weird to curl” phase. If I can keep this up, I can definitely get through this weird textured phase!
