I'm finally back with some pictures of my first shampoo and some updated pictures of my 2 week old SLs. I have washed my hair twice in 2 weeks, staying with my regular routine. I have that routine because I have dry scalp and absolutely don't want the "flakes" in my beautiful SLs . . .so far so good. During my second shampoo, I experienced some more slippage with about 4-6 locs and some that totally became undone (about 4 locs). I'm staying patient and inspite of the slippage and undone locs, still enjoying them. I have to remind myself that slippage is expected. I guess it doesn't seems as such a big deal since my hair is thin and blends in with the other locs even without being locked. I do think I will try braiding and banding for my next shampoo to see if I get less undone locs and slippage for the end result. I also notice my hair settling in and growing already. In about 2 more weeks, I will be going for my official follow-up appointment and semi-retightening. Notice the texture in some of the pics. Just imagine . . .I would have never known the joys of my beautiful and unique hair texture had I continued putting that creamy crack in my hair when I didn't need it. Thank God for natural beauty and what he created in me and so many others.
BANDING BEFORE WASH
RIGHT AFTER FIRST WASH
NOTICE THE TEXTURE AND NATURAL SHINE
Until next time . . . . as always Be Blessed and Be Encouraged!!!!!
