I eat a lot of apples. Usually gala. Speaking of apples, these pix are a couple of days after doing an apple cider vinegar soak!!! 😁 Yeah, I did it! And I have a video…that I’ll post a lil later. •

About a 3 year difference in these pix. The 2015 pic is 6 months into my loc journey and a couple days after my 1st and last interlock maintenance. I prefer palm rolling all the way! •

Halfway to 4 years! (Update: really mean I’ll be 4 years loc’d in half a year 😏) I’m always super humbled by the compliments I receive on my locs ☺️ The other day someone shared how they liked them and asked me where I go for maintenance, etc. She also shared how she’s been thinking of starting locs but is discouraged because of where she works 😔 That made me sad but I truly understand. If I was still in corporate I would have had the same issue. That’s probably one of the reasons I waited so long. When I decided to start up I was appreciative of working in an environment where I felt comfortable going thru the beginning stages without having to cover up my new locs. But here I am, 3 1/2 years later after having the confidence to make the decision to loc my hair 😊

It’s been 14 days since my last post. That’s the longest gap I’ve had during my weekly posts. This month y’all (exhales heavy)…this month has been very emotionally eventful. My locs have taken a backseat and are a bit of a mess. March 20 was my last #retwist - about 4 months ago - and I sincerely need one like yesterday! But, I am going to do this ACV soak first! I am, I am, I am! Ha ha, I am. •

Fitting my locs into my helmet is not so bad anymore! Maybe because they’re longer now? I thought I was gonna have to get a bigger helmet but I think I’m cool now 😅 I didn’t wear it today but I usually have my silk scarf on and that helps with getting the helmet on and off smoothly too. Be safe out there all my 2 wheel fam! •

Ok, so…y’all have a lil bit of insight on how busy my life is lol. How long have I been planning to do this ACV soak?! I used to stress about not getting everything done. Priorities are taken care of and everything else will get done when it gets done 🤷🏽‍♀️what else am I gonna do?! In the meantime, my locs are the frizziest right now and could use a retwist, but I’m chillin’. How do I know I love my locs? Because even at thier “worst” I still feel like they’re the BEST! Sounds a lot like Jesus. How do I know that He loves me? Because at my worst, while I was His enemy, He still gave His life for me 😍 What a love! •

Just getting back from the beach so my locs are all salted up! Yo, I have SO much fun in the ocean now 😄 It wasn’t always that way, but as I get older, idk, it’s like I could stay in the ocean, diving into waves all day 🌊 The ocean brought my natural curl back, too, lol! You can see it in the 1st pic but I got a close up for you in the 2nd. •

Remember I told y’all I was trying to accomplish something? I did it! It was super challenging for me at this point in my life, but with lots of prayer and strength from God, I succeeded. I’m a certified personal trainer now 😁👍🏽
Which looks nice on paper, lol, but now I can confidently help ppl so that’s the next step. I’m just so glad all that studying for the test is over! Not the hard work…but just that studying part 😄  And now to that ACV soak…

I don’t usually sleep with my locs in a ponytail holder but I woke up like this. I woke up feeling peaceful and I’m thankful for that. •
I was discussing Juneteenth with my lil ppl last night and with my husband this morning and I had a thought 🤔  Some of y’all know what CP time is, lol. I have to admit, I was on that but I’ve purposed to do better 😄 and I have. However, according to historic events, we weren’t the first ones who were late! Just a thought.

God loves you 😍

I’ve been working hard trying to accomplish something (aren’t we all!) so these are my resting locs. They’re up now (since I’m posting lol) and are about to go hard again. This is why my posts have been so inconsistent lately. Once I finish the task, tho, they’ll be consistent again 😊  I’ve also started running again, since my hernia surgery. 😁 I’ve found that my locs have grown and I need to explore other ways of tying them up while running. Aaaand…I had a convo with someone about finally soaking my locs in an ACV mix! So that should be coming soon too. Ik I’m not the only one who’s thought about doing a soak but because of (insert your reason here), it hasn’t been done yet 😄  Keep pushing y’all! Happy Sunday. 
And one more thing, if you don’t already know, please know that there’s a God in heaven who loves you 😍

I guess I gotta let it go, looks like another loc tip TKO 😂 But for real, it’s about to be gone. •

#fbf  I miss the curly ends on my young locs. Someone told me that once I hit 3 years my locs would grow like crazy. Accurate. •

I got the loc tie-back poppin’! ‘Twas my next goal 😄 It’s not the real sexy one yet, where the locs thickly envelop each other like love, but it’s on its way. I tied it and tied another tiny tie so it would stay put.  I was also conscious of how much strain I put on my side locs so the tie is still pretty loose. Healthy hair is the priority and I need my edges for the long haul 😩  On another note, there’s a lot of good music out. What’chu got playing in your headphones?? Put me on…

I’m not sure how I was able to make my pony fall this way but I went with it! This post is late; I’ve been trying to accomplish something and it’s taking up most of my time! Hopefully I can do it. I’ve already conquered the fear of not doing it so that’s a win 😊

#fbf 3 years of growth. Ha ha, I remember these days clearly. I was rockin’ with my baby locs ‘cause I knew they’d flourish! So glad I finally decided to loc up 😍
