14 Months

Hi all I am 14 months into my locks and loving them. Most have sealed and I never have a bad hair day. My hair is recovering from previous bad treatment and becoming thicker. I tried an experiment of washing my hair every week for 8 weeks. Yes you did hear right me and washing my hair in the same sentence! It worked and my hair swelled up more.See picture below.

I am really trying new things and decided to try soft spikes. I used 30 small, long spikes. I spritz my hair first with my own mixture and then left them in over night.
This was the result when I took them out. No styling here.

I then loosely made a style. Family and friends loved it. I will try this one again with more spikes next time.

Well its time to go and for all the locks lovers out there. Remember the best thing for our hair is to: "leave it alone" and you will be rewarded with long, thick, luscious hair. All locks are beautiful but not the same.
Happy locks.

Yes I must confess, I wash my hair every week, otherwise my scalp will itch till kingdom come!!

Definately more body now that you've taken the brave step of washing weekly.

Are you going to continue with it then?

Hi Nubian1 although I did enjoy washing my hair every week it caused slippage like I have never experienced before and when I went for my retightening my scalp was sore even though it took the same 2 1/2 hours. This tells me that neither me or my scalp are ready for weekly washes yet...

My hair (braidlocks) also prefers being washed every second week! So I did it with my 2 year old as well. So far so good.
