chilling out

hi when my loc fell out i was really devasted...well i was probably scared more than any thing else, i just thought that my hair must be in such bad condition and maybe more locs would fall out, anyway ive had time to relax a bit and i am not feeling so stressed out over it all, ive got to the stage where ive just accepted it as part of my journey, i am not going to reattach it-the main reason being i have actually misplaced the loc somewhere, so nevermind, i cant actually feel a bald spot where it fell out, so ive almost forgotten really that a loc fell out.

im still kinda free forming, i really just wash my hair a couple times a week, i add baking soda sometimes and i sometimes do acv rinse, if my hair seems dry i use a little evoo, i just cant be bothered with retwisting anymore, i really am just too lazy, i found it too time consuming and my 3yr old doesnt like the fact mummy has to sit down and do her hair for about 4hrs+, so now i just try and seperate so i can kida feel some partings and thats it, its so much easier.

i think free forming will mean my hair will take longer to grow in length becuse it isnt really being encouraged in any way, i dont care though because i think i have slow growing hair anyway, the back of my head is still progressing well, i can still undo all my babies if i wanted to, but the hair is definately starting to slowly loc, i will be really happy when it is completely loc'd though.

im back

hello everyone, hope you are all doing well. im finally back online so i can start to update my blog, ive been so busy moving that i havent done ANYTHING with my hair except wash / rinse it, which has been quite good for me really because i havent been so hung up it, so i feel so much more relaxed regarding my hair.
at the moment i am using AVALON LEMON AND SHEA BUTTER ORGANIC SHAMPOO its really fresh and i find ok for my hair, before that i was using australian tea tree oil shampoo, which although smelt lovely, it made my hair itchy. i wanted to not use any shampoo on my hair but i couldnt take it, just using baking soda and acv rinses do nothing apart from chronically dry out my hair, so at the moment i am happy to use shampoo again, but only organic products.
my hair is going through the shrinking process at the moment, so it looks quite short, everyone keeps on asking if i have cut it! also i also get asked alot "is it supposed to look like that" so its getting tiring explain to people that i am locing my hair with as low maintanence as poss, and that my hair might look like a big afro but one day it will resemble locs.
i will put up some pics soon, let me know if you can see any changes, as always encouragement needed, as i really dont know ANYONE who is dreading their hair, when i went to the salon with my friend who gets her hair relaxed and tong, the hairdresser asked me what i was having done to my hair, i said im not getting my hair done, after that the hairdresser spoke amongst themselves in another language but i kept hearing the word RASTA pop up, i was quietly laughing and had to feel strong in myself to ignore the looks etc etc.
anyway i hope everyones hair is doing what its suppose to be doing, talk2uall soon
