Suprisngly, usually when something happens like this I feel bad and feel like it was all my fault. But in this case I really wasn't totally at fault, it was just something that happened. I am upset that one of my coworkers was standing right out side the room and walked past mulitple times then tells me after the fall "oh i seen her sitting up on the end of the bed" Im thinking why didnt you do or say something? this was the same coworker who had witnessed how drowsy BB was so she knew she had no business sitting up.
Anyways, a lesson learned :(

I have seen so many beautiful locs over the past few days but this one stands out! Her hair is fabulous and everything that I want for my hair lol. I love this length, size of parts/locs, the shine, and the style! Simply fabulous!!!!!!!!!
I sure hope this photo is sited properly. I am using my blogsy app on my iPad. I just dragged the photo into my post. I got this photo from newhairnet.com by typing in google search " loc journey" it was the first result

I know this will be a shocker for most, because I dont think I have ever mentioned this but...... I had/have a serious obsession/ love for locs. It has grown stronger over the past few days and today I decided to give it a go. I am not 100% sure this is what I want but I want it enough to give it a try.
I spent this day two strand twisting my hair, I did the twist smaller than I ever had and I used a comb for parting(something I never do) I told my husband yesterday that I was thinking about getting locs and he smiled and said " I knew you would eventually" he thought that my whole " natural" journey was to loc my hair, lol. That wasn't my intention, but I am glad he was accepting. As I write this I am trying to think of reasons that I don't want locs and there aren't many. I am happy I took the first step in the process. I know y'all prob think I'm crazy and am going in to the blindly but I have spent hours over the past few days stalking youtube loc wearers and bloggers. Even before I decided to loc I had been subscribed to a few ladies with locs.
Basically I want my hair locked because I think it's the best decision regarding hair for my lifestyle. I hate detangling and combing my hair even thought has gotten easier. I also love twist, as you can see that was the main style I wore. Even though I love twist outs , wash n gos, buns, and such I just don't have the patience for it. Yes it looks pretty, but I feel like you still have to style it everyday and I don't want to do that. I also don't like to worry about my hair getting ruined if it rains or if it's humid. This is one of the reasons I went natural! I just want to get up and go and if throughout the day I experience crazy weather, I won't have to worry about my hair.
I'm so excited for what's to come, I can't wait to see how long it takes my hair to loc, im hoping less than 6 months. I really hope to see some awesome growth, I really think my hair is secretly thanking me :)

Ava enjoying a freshly picked strawberry
Jk having his strawberry
A waterproof camera, natural hair and the rain made a perfect photo shoot. I didnt want to be out in the rain, but of course 5 minutes after walking outside it started. I had already started taking my photos and at first I panicked. lol Then I thought about it, my hair wont get ruined by the rain and I have a waterproof camera! Needless to say... the show went on :)

I have been allowing them to get wet in the shower each day, then I add sweet almond oil.
I retwisted the nape area to keep them “neat looking.
I have washed them once and they held up pretty good. I am happy to report that I havent had to play with my ends to keep them curly. My hair is finally to the point where almost every twist is curling on its own just the way I like it. I have also tried a few styles which has kept my hair interesting. Enough rap, heres the pics lol
