    My locs turned 8months on the 27th but that was also my graduation from nursing school and I forgot about my babies lol so sad.
    I did treat them to a gd washing, a perfesional retwist and some loc jewlary a couple days b4 so I think they are pretty happy. I can't wait to make it past 9months thou cause 9 months is when I took down my first set so for me I have to past that mark b4 I feel like i'm really doing something, like i'm really on this journey.
    I'm just me, beautifully!

    Many of you will say no big deal. Others will understand how i struggled with finding the courage to do this. I have a YT video and blog coming about it soon. Long story short, my hair turned into my security blanket. a means to measure my nappy validity. When I chose to shed the blanket, i found myself again. planning to style, wash and care for my hair was turning into a chore again. Lent and build up issues were another thing. The time it takes to keep those locks clean, well, I'm just not interested in 'doing the time'.

    We get spoiled the first 1-3 years locking. When the length kicks in, you better be willing to do the time. By this time,me, like others, are often spoiled from the low maintenance the first few years afforded and planning your free time around hair becomes a must, not an option as your free time gets traded for:soaking, brushing, cleaning, picking, tightening-lent, build up rinses(if you care about having clean locks).....I locked to be free and that freedom has truthfully evaded me for a good year and a half. Into year 7, going into 8 this summer, I'm free again, and thinking of cutting further. But here's a pic. The face-on pics are in my lock album here. I think you have to friend me to see it. Just hit me up, i'll let you in.

    Thanks ya'll, yes the heat is definitely motivating me, lol. ALL that hair crawling under my arm pits and trapped in my clothes here and there was driving my nutzo too. The hype of long hair is ovah' for me, it's nice to get there. Then you do. Then what? At 5 foot 2, it's a lot of weight and I immediately felt lighter in so many ways.

    My QOTD. what song is Himmy listening to as she strikes a pose in her 4 yr anniv pictures? You are grooving! lol! Congrats to you! And I look like your hair twin now! I love your length! And, obviously missed it.
