Photos of DocsLocs...It's been a while

How long has it been? This is a 42 month post. I see a post labeled 39 months, but those were yukky iphone photos that were under exposed. (I got a new camera :o)

My routine hasn't changed. I washed 3 days ago with a clarifying shampoo. Hot six oiled my scalp. Used a bit of a 'cholesterol-like' or 'mayonnaise-like' conditioner as a leave in. I rolled my hair in fairly small sections on perm rods (grey and white size). When I ran out of perm rods I used some sponge rollers sans sponges. I sat under a bonnet dryer - the kind you attach to a blow dryer...I'm more careful since I think I burned out 5 locs last fall...a post for another time...

I still hate to wash and do so about every two to three weeks or so. This set should last me a couple of weeks or until I shampoo again.

I know my ends look as if I bleached them. I think it's just their age and perhaps the sun. In fact, I put in a bit of dark brown color - mostly at the roots and perhaps 5 inches out - so the ends weren't covered with color. Been fighting those greys around my hairline, but I mostly rely on the mascara fix as I am particular about maintaining as strong and full a hairline as I can.

Hope all is well with y'all. Love your feedback.

Love your hair! I live in Atlanta and am considering sisterlocs. Do you have any suggestions for consultants I can talk to?
