Month 8: Shake them dreads

Not too much to add on this month's update. I'm still gradually attaining length (my new motto is: "Boob-Length Locs by 2011") and following my regular hair care routine. I can pull my hair back into a half ponytail now, yay smile Actually I've been able to do that for a couple months. I can't wait til I can start doing full ponytails, buns, and other updos. Also, I wanna add some color eventually. I heard it's not good to start coloring your locs until they are at least a year old or so.

I'm gonna start experimenting with actual hairstyles now that my hair is more mature (lol @ my hair being "mature"). I'm thinking side swept semi-updo, yes?

Some hair issues I'm still dealing with @ the 8-month mark:
  • Linty locs. Only a few of the locs in the back of my head are regularly affected. Nothing a trusty ACV rinse can't help, though.
  • The fuzzies. Not as bad as it was in the beginning, but I'm not at the point where I can retwist only twice a month like some folks. OK, maybe I am at that point (after your hair takes, how often you retwist your locs is really a personal decision), but I can't let my hair COMPLETELY go.
