Not Quite

Last night, I was catching up on some blog archive posts, and I started grabbing at my hair and randomly twisting. I definitely need another inch or so before I think they could really start some locs. I'll probably wait until after the new year.

I had no intentions of twisting my whole head. Next thing you know:

So, I threw my scarf on and went to bed. They didn't look half bad this morning. I decided not to conditioner wash in the shower like I normally do. Instead I just took them out and fluffed with my fingers.

Had I actually been PLANNING this, I would have used a hair butter and would have done them all on damp hair. I just started haphazardly doing this after I did my scalp massage with oil. I had oil in my hair, and eventually did dampen and re-twist some of them, but I prefer the results from butters. I also would have deep conditioned.

Anywho, this is how we look going to work today:

Your hair has grown alot since the last pic I saw! You will be a loc length before you know it.
You have a good day too!

I wish I hadn't cut it back down in August, but at that time I hadn't decided to loc. I think by January I'll be good to go. :)

What loc length are you going for? I want to loc too. I was thinking of waiting to get a job first and then start them or if I should start them while I'm studying and taking the bar exam.
