    Smile Finally Did It ... Locs!

    After two+ months of research, I finally started my locs on May 24, 2014! Between this website, YouTube, various articles/blogs, and the book, Nice Dreads, I felt I was ready to start my new hair chapter. I did it at home with the help of my best friend. I've started with two strand twists, and used a gel I concocted with an aloe vera gel base, coconut, argon, and olive oils, then topped off with lemongrass eo. It took forever (but doing it at home that can happen - taking a lot of breaks! lol). I decided to start a blog documenting my journey. When I get it started, I'll be sure to share. I'm excited to start my journey and look forward to where it leads.

    That is fantastic! I can't wait to see your blog and pictures as you make your way. Seems so many of us are now doing some things we always wanted to do...

    I am sooo excited for you! I have gone back and forth with locs but never have been able to make that commitment again. One day I will be ready (again). Can't wait to see your journey!
