A Change in Plans
There has been a slight change in my hair plans. After combining my locks a few weeks ago and even sewing the ends of a few, I have now taken the combined locks down and am back to my sister locks. After just a couple weeks of growth, I noticed that my hair was filling in EXTREMELY fast and rather nicely. Not being satisfied with waiting through the process of relocking due to combining, I decided to just take the combined locks apart. Although I love the look of bigger locks I didn't have the patients to go through with the combine :(
I have learned through this trial that if I ever decide to ever cut my locks and start over, I will start with a different method such as comb coils or two strand twists so that I can achieve the larger look from the beginning.
Although I feel bad for not being able to be patient enough to go through with my new plan, I am very satisfied with how my sister locks are looking at this point. If you look at the pictures below, you will see that the thinning area has completely filled in. As the locks were two-strand twisted and the hair grew into the parts, I was able to incorporate that new growth into the locks when I did my re tightening.
My scalp feels wonderful and they look great to me. I have also noticed that the shaft of my locks seem to now be more compact; finally they really feel mature. I am again loving my hair, trying new things like twist outs, braid outs, and up dos.
Until next time,
Lock on wit yo bad self!
