Thanks goldilocs! No, i'm not freeforming but it sure does look that way, huh? I'm in the beginning stages and i don't want to overdo it with the maintenance. I love how they look right now, but i gotta do somethin soon bcuz there are a lot of 'em trying to join together in holy matrimony! :ura

I enjoyed your album.

your hair is beautiful. You started your locs one week before i did and your locs are beautiful. Can you please tell me what do you use to tretwist your new growth? Also can you give me some insight on just exactly how buds are suppose to look. I know everyone&#39;s bud will not be the same. thanx. NICE PICS.

03-07-2004, 12:16 AM
I am so jealous. I started my locs the second week of january and I have yet to see any signs of budding. Congrats!!!! :heart

naps2locs - i like your screen name :) I spritz my hair w/ water and oil as i palmroll my roots. A bud looks like a lump of hair somewhere along the loc.. some ppl bud in the middle, some near the root, some near the ends. You will definitely be able to distinguish the buds when they come along. When u look at the loc, it will look like a snake who has just swallowed a rat. KWIM? When u feel the loc, u will feel the &#39;bump&#39; there. The pics really do explain a lot better than i could. HTH

Red - it&#39;s like one day they were just there, and i couldn&#39;t find anymore. Now they&#39;re all over! They seem to sprout at night while i&#39;m sleeping or whenever i&#39;m not looking :-P . Thanks for the well wishes!
