    @AR & Mrs Full.
    That's amazing....I remember when you were just researching and nervous . Congrats!

    Since ya'll are 'postin'... Ill give an update to my previous updates.
    For 2019 I'm settled with this set of locks. I experimented alot with the first set of locks; and I learned alot...thus I wrote about it, haha.
    2019 makes my 6th yr of locking. My first set lasted to the 7th yr.

    I have no intention to live life without them. When I get an itch I shave the undercut/sides or trim them down and it freshens things up for me. For now, I keep them at shoulder length. The longest this set has ever been was below braw strap and I chopped them. I dont feel liberated when they get weighty and I'm over proving I get attain length. I just want life to be carefree/hairfree and so far I'm at peace.

    When I took the breather to be lose it was so uncomfortable, distracting and exhausting. So, locked it is. If I ever can't maintain them myself, I"ll have to train one of my sons to tighten then for me, lol. I still wont go to a hairdresser. Life is too short for that.

    Happy New Year all!

    Y'all know what? I totally forgot that I cut 16 of my front locks a few years ago. In 2015 I cut them all down to a few inches and began braiding the front while leaving the rest alone. After a few months I locked them up again. Right now most of my locks are around behind length and I may be cutting them back to my lower back again soon.

    I also just want life to be carefree/hairfree. I don't want to spend all of my time worrying about my hair or trying to style it etc. And I sure ain't got time to spend all day at the beauty shop trying to get them done. I just let them coil up how they want and nurture them as we go.

    Happy 2019 to you also, Knotty Author and to all of you ladies!

    Hi ya'll. Welcome to the sweet spot, 3 years and counting! It is definitely an adventure ladies. Hopefully in a year or two I have stories to tell! Distracted, exhausted but working on it. I surely see a change!
