Happy 2 Year Lociversary to Me!!!!!




OMG I can't believe this time has come this quickly!!! I can recall vividly scouring through many blogs admiring those who have started this journey before me. Having some serious loc envy, which I still do by the way, and wondering if my loc's will look like theirs. I can recall the day I went in to start my loc's. I went in with 6 inches of natural hair so I just knew I would not have the stringy chicken looking loc's! Boy was I wrong, I'm thin in the top front portion so that was really evident for the first three months. I was all prepared to be my loctician's poster child, I was her first client for microloc's, so I was anticipating great things right out of the gate. Crazy because I knew from looking at other blogs that my loc's were not going to look mature but I had high hopes because I had a healthy head of natural hair. Well I don't think I lost the chicken head look until around month 3 & it's been all gravy from there!

I got a new color for my two year lociversary it's called RED HOT!!! I love the new color & I may keep it for awhile.

I've enjoyed watching my hair evolve into what it has become in two years & I'm sure the next year will be even more thrilling!

Oh wait I have to tell y'all this: So last night I'm at church for a rehearsal & one of the older ladies looked at my hair & says........I don't like your hair like that! me: REALLY? Why? now mind you her hair is unkempt & standing on top of her head!!! Then she tells me she doesn't know why she doesn't like it & proceeds to ask me would her hair look good like mines. I told her well you wouldn't have to worry about a comb ever again (not that I think she did anyway)LOL!
So then I decided to change the subject & ask her about baking or something off the wall so she'd get off my hair!

Woppy, you MADE it! Congratulations....doesnt time fly by???
Funny how people want to remove the speck from your eyes before they remove the log in theirs!! And its very challenging to bite your tongue when it's an elder out of respect and all that.

The colour looks great on you.....dont mind those nasty greys...lol

congrats on your two year mark I love the red hot looks good & for once I wish people would keep their negative comments to their self but then again if she asking would that look good on her head that sounds like pure jealousy, should have told her no they wont look good on you keep burning yours up with chemicals
