I hit 13 months into my journey on the 26th of August. I had a retightening appt. Thursday, and my locs are coming right along. At this appt. I had my first grooming. If you don't know what a grooming is, it's where each loc is taken and the loose hairs sticking out are cut off. You can think of it as cleaning up the locs. One must be very careful to not cut INTO the body of the loc, otherwise the loc could weaken. Also more ends were cut off. I'm getting closer to being completely natural as we get rid of permed ends. I'm not totally ready to cut them all off, due to wanting to preserve some length. I have noticed that my locs are really trying to mature as the months pass by. Other than that, nothing else new except just enjoying the journey.
Love, peace, and no hair grease.
