Hey hey, how ya doin?
It is SO interesting how, every time I think about blogging (or vlogging) more about Bradelocz, it’s just like…
“Eh… what’s to say?”
I’ve said this before but, back in the day when I first began this journey, it was all fun & excitement.
It was fresh & new.
It was different because I was new to natural hair after having lived that relaxer life for so many years.
So back then, I had a lot to report about this wonderful new journey I had embarked upon!
I mean, I documented EVERY-thing and back then, we didn’t have bloggers & vloggers talking much about locking, especially not using BRAIDS to do it. That’s how & why the Bradelocz ebook came about. It was pretty much the ONLY source of information on starting locs from braids.
Yep, those were the good ‘ole days.
But this SECOND go’round?
Nahh, nothing like before. It’s just like… “Been there. Done that. Nothing new to see or report here.”
I’m not using some ah-MAZE-ing product line that just makes my locs… whatever it is folks want products to make their locs do.
They’re long… they’re soft… but honestly, I just don’t do a whole lot of anything to or with them, aside from the VERY OCCASIONAL loc knot set when I want curls.
Other than that, it’s wash with whatever shampoo & conditioner I happen to have on hand, oil with coconut oil, and tighten – and I don’t EEE-ven wanna tell you how IN-frequently THAT happens! lol
Yes, when it comes to my hair, I am laid back… VERY laid back.
Maybe it’s because I’m getting older or because I just have too many other (what I deem) more important things to think about and concern myself with. As long as it’s healthy, not falling out and I still got my edges… I’m good.
But I digress on all of that.
On to the updates!
So, the following pics were actually taken on March 30, 2017 and I’m just now posting them on April 30 (daaaang.) 2017. Oh well, I guess it’s technically a March 2017 update and not an April one, huh? But nevertheless, this is how things are looking these days…
As I mentioned in the caption of the middle pic, I did combine some.
At one point, I actually started getting “that” feeling – the same feeling that led me to combine my first set and then later on, get tired of them being as thick as they were and wanting the fullness of my thinner locs again.
Yeah, “that” feeling hit me again and I started twisting and combining. BUT…
After about a day or two… not really sure how long it was… I snapped out of it and took most of them down, leaving only the ones that were very, very micro in size.
I DO still sometimes get thick loc envy, but I eventually get over it! lol
My hair, at the longest point(s), is just touching the top of my behind. I told my daughter once it gets to the point where I’m actually SITTING on it, I’ll cut them back a little. I think just above the booty is a nice, ‘just right’ length for me lol 🙂
The full length isn’t AS evident in the pics since it’s curled, but when “straight”, you’d be able to better see how long it is now.
Well, I hope you enjoyed this little ‘update’.
See ya next time I decide to do one!
OH! And if you’re on the fence about starting your very own Bradelocz journey to growing YOUR hair, down to “there”…
