Hairstyle Lounge on African Naturalistas - My Journey to Permanent Locs (4)

Hello beautiful people, I hope you had a wonderful Easter break.

It's been a while since I visited the salon or did anything on my hair at all. Before last week, I had not been to the salon in six weeks. It was with so much joy that I went to the salon, as  my scalp was on fire.

We are still om the journey to permanent locs. For the first time since I embarked on this journey last December, I finally got to wash the hair two weeks ago, though the hair is not fully locked. The roots unravelled in the process of washing, but a large chunk of the hair is locked.

I got to O'Naturals, and met with the loctician in charge of my hair. I discovered good news and bad news.

Good news: My locs were forming pretty well

Bad news: I lost a loc on my right temple. Thank you Post Partum Shedding. I thought I was going to escape you *side eye*

For the second time around, I forgot my medicated shampoo at home, so I had to go straight to using regular shampoo and conditioner. When this was done, we proceeded to separate the roots as usual, and then a scalp treatment on my head. I didn't need to go under the dryer yet, which is very good for me, as I am not a fan of dryers. We washed again, and dried with a micro fibre towel. Once this was done, my hair was sprayed, and we proceeded to lock it loc by loc. This took a bit of time because my hair is quite full and the locs are quite lengthy

Learning my lesson from the last time I was at the salon, I wasn't in as much hurry as I was previously, so I could get my locs properly styled after they were done. I now know that I won't want to wear my locs out right after leaving the salon. I asked for a style that would cover the area where I lost a loc, and this is what we ended up with.











Once again, I am glad I started my locs properly, and well arranged. This always allows my lock to style properly.

Also, this style will yield three styles, just like the previous ones. The second will be the one where I unravel the side bangs, to reveal slighly curly loc strands, and then the regular locs, when I unravel them all.

What do you think about this hairstyle? Yay or nay???
