Disclaimer: Don't Try This At Home


I will be officially 8 months locked on June 10, 2008. Today I thought I try something new. I actually washed my hair as if it was loose. I mean I was swishing around, rubbing locks together, the hole 9. I have not B&B since December or January, and normally I would just squeeze my locks and gently scratch the scalp... but not today. I washed my hair using a $0.92 bottle of Suave Cucumber melon shampoo that I got from Walmart. I am running extremely low on my Knotty Boy Soap bar since there is two sets of locks to wash in the house. I purchased the bar back in November and I still have some left. However I need to place an order for another one A.S.A.P.

Needless to say, my hair came out just fine.

I love washing my hair without the braids and bands however I'm sure Istill should be B& B well at least the front. Your locks are so long and pretty!

Your locks are just lovely girl! I'm jealous of the no braiding and banding...

It's freeing to wash w/out braiding & banding but as for me, eventhough I have mature locks, I still need to band just to get the shampoo and water to reach the scalp. My hair is too thick and all over the place to wash freely.

Even though I'm not loc'd, I try not to warsh my hair unless I band it.

I love your progress and I know it felt good to just rub the hell out of your scalp for once, I can't wait to do it.

Special K said...

I am soo lov'n your blog, however, I'm not interested in being lock'd, but I like how you've outlined the progress. I feel like I know a fellow blogger as well as a natural sistah in the area. Take care!!!

I love your progress and you must be drinking some growth hormones. Your hair has really grown. I really hate banding too. I only did it for the first month or so. Great Post!

Oh my gooderness! Your hair is long! I wonder when I won't have to braid and band another reason I hate washing my own locks!

Thank you ladies for the wonderful compliments. Shrinkage is a hell of a thing. My hair shrinks back up when it's dry. I do need to invest in another knotty boy soap bar ASAP!
