    Sigh, my life.

    Whenever I cut my locs, the ends attract lint. WHYYYY!! Think I'll search the board for a solution b/c EVA-REE-THING has been addressed on NP!

    I'm at work, and just went for breakfast. While waiting for my order I notice a white woman with brown, teal, purple and blonde locs and think to myself....those look disgusting.

    Then I wondered if people looking at my hair thought the same thing.

    Then I shook my head because....hell naw.

    I have one loc that I placed in a really awkward spot and I think it will cause problems in the future. I put it right at the corner of my forehead that is made up of pure baby hair (edges), which of course has a very short terminal length. I notice that after I wash my hair and my roots come undone, it leaves this particular loc hanging by a thread because the short little hairs don't reach all the way into the loc. I have to retwist often to keep the little short hairs meshed into the locs. This is the only loc I use gel on. I interlock it every so often as well. Today I noticed it was particularly bad. The loc was hanging on by a few strands. By the time I wrapped the hairs around the base of the loc, it looked normal size again. I knew when I made this locs that it was in a bad spot but moving it would have required more adjustments in the parting of the surrounding locs so I just went with it. I regret that now.

    ...my mother wants me to cut a lock and give it to her for her head. I think the thought is great-the fear of having a 'gap' makes me hyperventilate.

    but...


    ...I am looking for a lock specialist to give me a fly cut. I'm in Tampa, FL now and this heat is more than a notion. My neck feels strained again from the extra weight and I want my hair cut back NOW. I'm looking for pictures of lock cuts and a stylist. help!

    I would start with shaving the back. If I do that, then, perfect. I'll have a couple of rows to donate to mom!

    I loced my hair! I'm almost two months in and I've been spending time in this forum reading, reading and reading some more. There is so much information and I have only made it back to posts from 2009 If only most of the pictures and links still worked. Anyway, I'm glad NP is still kickin'.

    Carry on.

    The first pic is from the day I put my two strand twists in. I don't have a grid pattern. I just "grabbed and go'ed".
    Second pic is after my first wash one week later.








    I love my locs so much.

    Based on the delivery of their comments on how small my locs were, I sensed a veiled distaste towards the size of them from the vendors who were selling loc jewelry. I think I got a discount on the piece that I bought, but I'm glad I decided against buying anything else from them.

    I've also been contemplating an undercut for a while. It would take away some of the hair weight I'm carrying. Let me know if or how it goes.
