What a beautiful head of locs, stunning! You are really on your way!

Goodnapps said...

Congratulations! Your locks look great and you look very adorable.

Blaqkofi - Thank you, that is such a compliment coming from you. After reading your blog, I started on the wheatgrass smoothie regimen. When I'm faithful to the regimen, my hair grows faster than when I'm not using it, and it does seem healthier.

LaChanda - I so appreciate the compliment. This is a totally different look from having the perm ends. It feels like I'm starting all over again.

Tanya - Thank you! I might have to copy you with the Renee hair tie, it looks so cute on you. I need just a little more length...

Leighann said...

Congrats and welcome to real freedom!

Chocolata said...

Leighann - Thank you! I am loving my new found freedom.

As Aretha would say----Freedooommm---Freedoooomm-Freedooommm---oohhh Freedoom----Girl I know how you feel, when I cut my 1/2 inch of permed edges off it felt so good. Looking good!

Cluizel said...

Hey Girl,

The hair is looking fierce. Lana did a good job. I like your hair even more than I did before.

Chocolata said...

Abena, Sharon, Michelle, and LaTonya - thank you all for your kind compliments! I'm feeling so free I'm going to have to dust my soft spikes off. Freestyling all the way baby!

Your locs look great. It is a relief once your done with the braiding and banding. Thanks for stopping by my spot.

I love using the term OPH and folks always laugh when I tell them what it means. But I do remember back in the day when I would boldly say I had "IBM" hair, meaning, "I bought Mine!!!" Now I guess we need to say we have "IAM" hair, meaning, "It's All Mine!" Congrats on freedom from the LYE!! Welcome to IAM!!

Chocolata said...

Maryee - "IAM", I love it! I'll be using that. Thank you.

Valenciajaz said...

Chocolata, belated congrats on your 1 year locaversary. You said that you're fully locked. Please share with me how you know. Did the lock fairy tell ya? lol I'm being silly and inquisitive cuz I want to know want is the defining moment when one can speak the words I'm locked. Is there a certain look or feel to them? I still say I'm locking but I look forward to speaking those words.

Chocolata said...

Valenciajaz - I was thrilled when my loctician informed me that I was "locked" just meaning that my ends are matted enough that I can manipulate my hair, wash it, whatever, without fear of unraveling. The ends feel tight and coarse though I do have a couple around my hairline which are still soft and have curly q's at the end. HTH.
