I finally managed to undo my traditional locks yesterday; an exercise I don't recommend to anyone who doesn't have loads of patience...and a huge patience reservoir for when that patience runs out (oh trust me, it will run out...)

Anyway; I now have 3-4 inches of natural knotted hair; which I haven't combed. I have this huge scarf on my head and no one at work has quite figured out what's going on. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my hair for the next week. I can't comb it until I undo the huge lumps & knots... and the idea is to preserve as much hair as possible so I can't have just cut the knots off...eish!!!

I'll have gerrylocks in (CAN'T WAIT) exactly 10 days!!!Philadelphia here and come...

PS: A huge thanks to Gerry Mayo who has been very patient in explaining the gerrylocs process and assisting with the bookings and advice on how to undo locs and everything in between... can't wait to see you in person!

So long!
PS: I must get into the habit of taking pictures..well...soon (ish); one thing at a time; I'm still getting used to bloggin'!!!

Gerrylocs:)...soon & very soon!

I'm on a countdown... sooo excited; in about 3 weeks I'll be spotting new gerrylocs :)
well...first I still have to undo my traditional locks, I've tried about 5 so far and it's to test of patience!

Partly sad to part with my current locs though, it's been a memorable 3 year journey of an investment to self and to personal acceptance, no more LYE!!!

I've been through all the locking stages, and it was such a joy to watch my locs mature..and yes I have no qualms about having extensions on my hair while I regrow my new microlocs...without beeswax! yeeiii :)

It's going to be a bit of a challenge though, maintaining my own locs in a country where no one (I know) does tool-assisted locs...but a gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do! I'll cross that bridge soon enough..for today I have wax & build-up to fight with as I try to keep at least 4 inches of natural hair from my shoulder-length locs....

And oh yes, it's been a trying week; so I'm looking forward to the Sabbath rest..
