Better Late Than Never + Vegetarianism

Wow...A year. When I think back to the moment I decided I would lock my hair, I never could have imagined I'd be at this point so soon. I remember fussing over my hair so much in the beginning and now I finally embraced the phases and I let my locs just be everyday. They aren't shiny and glossy, I don't wash and twist every 2 weeks like I had started out doing, I stopped obsessing over growth and I don't cut off the dead hair every other day anymore...I just let them be now.

Comparison shot, anyone?

Let's take a brief walk down memory lane, shall we? :-)

Baby locs were just born in this picture on June 7th 2010...

Now. June 2011. One year old!


(May 2011)

Quick life update: Things have been crazy here in NC. So many life changes in such a short amount of time. Everything is moving so quickly and I hardly ever have free time! Looking forward to the day of work and play balance but for now it's just work. Oh! I've also been a vegetarian for 2 months...going strong and ask me if I miss meat, I'll shout a big, fat "NO" right in your face :-P  Veggie consumption=healthier hair but I'm still learning about how I can balance my diet to get enough vitamins and minerals. I'll be back again very soon with consistent posts!
