Side Do

I was  brave enough this past Sabbath to attempt a side turned out rather well. I couldn't plait all the hair in.. I have more hair than I'm used to with the I swept the hair to the sides and only used the front and back row to hold the plait to the side. I'm not sure if I didn't put unnecessary pressure to the front and backline though, so until I'm well-versed in these matters I'll stick to free-style.
Don't know if you can see from the back, but I have hair that needs retightening already... and I haven't even ordered the tool...mmmm

OK; I just stopped typing and did a 4 pt rotation to the one at the back with my fingers and it worked!!!! OK, it's not too tight, but hey...I did it:) :)

Spaces filling up..

My locs are really starting to look natural. The partings are filling up nicely.
However my skin is truly acting up. I guess that's why it has taken me so long to put up pics in this blog.  I've made this photo as black and white as possible to hide my skin rash and redness.

I've noticed that my hair doesn't look as full as the other bloggers, however I don't very thick hair in any case so I suppose this is fine. I'm waiting patiently for the ends to lock.

With my previous traditional locks the process of full locking took roughly six months (or was it more?) so I'm not expecting the gerrylocks to lock up miraculously in 1 month :)

ps: I love my locks :)

Still loving my hair

I got a lot of compliments at church over the past weekend. Most people really love my hair..BUT

I washed my hair for the first time and IT WAS HEAVY while wet...I really didn't expect that... on the plus side..there were no signs of slippage anywhere.. my hair stayed intact, and for that I'm really thankful.

It is now 3 weeks and I know I'm gonna have to retighten pretty soon...that should be interesting given that I still only know the theory and I'm soooo afraid to mess up my hair...

But hey; worrying about is no use...
I suppose I'll know what to do when the time comes :)

Gerrylocked At Last...

I'm still new in this blogging I don't update as frequently as I should..

My visit to Philadelphia was wonderful, Gerry Mayo truly is a beautiful soul; I arrived there on Sunday the 27th; after a 22 hr flight from SA via Israel... and we went straight to business...full day Monday and another full day Tuesday with 3 people working on my hair...

I was so tired by the end of it all... but it was well worth it. I look absolutely wonderful... I must post some pics but I'm so bad with downloading pics from my camera...all in due time:)

I have about 3 tones in my hair with very light ends..
lock count approximately 310..

and yes I have a stunning head of mature looking locks...

Ps: a few people in NY complemented me on my 'sisterlocks'...I didn't have the time to 'correct' all of them so I simply smiled in acknowledgement..

PS: I really really love my locs!!
