1 week old (technically!)

I've been living in some of my SLs for a week..others won't come to this milestone until Wednesday.

But....I've loved every minute. I am a last minute type of girl...I wake up with just enough time to get dressed and head out of the door (I have a toddler that is allergic to sleep!). Since I've been locked, I actually have about 5 mins to spare...and that's a lot in my world!

Below are some pics of me today. I have a couple locks that are just doing their thang and sticking up all whicha way. But that's cool.

I got a lot of compliments today....a lot of "ooh I like your hair" But i know that many thought they were tiny braids...I didn't say anything was family, so they'll see the transformation occur before their eyes.

OMG...what am I gonna do about the itchiness and the dandruff. I'm suppossed to wash my hair this weekend, but i don't know if I can last that long. Like, if my hands are in my hair now, its to scratch my scalp and try to get these dandruff out. I stopped oiling my scalp when I did the big chop because it felt like I had worms crawling on/in my scalp with the thickness of my hair....BUT I did wash my hair like every 3 0r 4 days...whenever it started to itch, I washed I'm going a lil nuts over here!

But, besides that, I'm still liking them. I like them short....i'm appreciating the texture more. I don't feel compelled to spiral rod or roll them cuz my hair isn't long enuf yet. My locs are getting those curly q's already and is looking like a puff of curls anyway, so I'm glad they are just being left alone and i'm freestyling for now.

  1. Congratulations on your locks! They look fabulous!

    As for the itching and dandruff. I have two suggestions but you should consult with your consultant first, or maybe even ask her what she suggests.

    Apple Cider Vinegar Rinse or spritz. Although the smell is not appealing, it really helps with dandruff and itching.

    When I don't use the ACV I use

    Jamiacan Mango and Lime No More Itch Grow Spray
    Since me and Hubby started using this product throughout the week we have noticed a serious decrease in dandruff and itching. We have serious issues with both. I use this about 2-3 times a week.

    Like I said check with your consultant first, she may have better ideas on products that you might can use without interrupting the locking process. Hope you find what works for you soon.

    Take Care
