Okay, like i mentioned a couple of posts ago, i wanted to go with the flow and then basically went a little doolally!

In the picture below, on the left hand side where there is a concentration of grey is the offending patch....i say patch, to be fair it is growing ever soooooo slowly.

Then i went to see a barber in the hair salon and forced his hand to make the sides equal, by cutting some of my locks which he did reluctantly on the right hand side......(why do barbers do that? Hair salons were scared to come near me.....weird!!).

Anyways to me it looked like my natural hair line and for the first time since having my locks installed i was able to wear my hair in a pony tail out of the salon feeling very liberated. Though am not convinced its equal but no probs there.

If am honest, for a little while now i had to combined many locks at the back, because they where just too thin and it was something that bothered me especially when i retightened. I wish i had thought about it before.

So from this day forth i will always trim back at least an inch from the nape of my neck and let it be. In fact when i retightened at the weekend it felt sooo good because the first locked i grabbed to retighten was solid and strong.

Now for the front (this bit i did myself a week before i went to the barbers) right hand side temple has been a bone of contention for a while now....and if it isnt one thing its another. So i did the decent thing and SHAVED THE SUCKERS OFF!!!! HE HE HE

I actually didnt mean to shave it all........its just that there wasnt much hair there to begin with....i hated it so much. I used hide it. I used grade 1 on the clippers and it just looked bald. Damn it i rocked the sh*t out of it. I can hear you guys screaming i must be mad......well you'd not be entirely wrong there.

Have you calmed down yet????? Good! Now.............. back to the barbers, i got him to shave the other side and i kinda have a Mohawk thang going on.......(well only at the i dont scare my co workers) then i got him to trim the edges and make me look neat and tidy and the result you will find below.

This picture below is how i wear it to work and i luuuuurve it. I think its about not hiding that side of my head anymore!!!! Now i EXPOSE it for the world to see.

Oh yes i almost forgot to mention, i also had a big trim of the length....roughly about an inch which felt sooo nice and neat. You see the thing with the patch at the back is that as my hair grew to shoulder length, it got quite noticeable that something was going on underneath. So i did the only decent thing........and this is how i present myself for work.

A little close up for you.

PS = I did save all the locks that were cut off.....strangely and perhaps not surprising, i didnt have that much maybe 12 if that.

What are my plans for the temples? Who knows......though from experience when i start cutting it's a very very slippery slope.......I get twa envy........OH GAWD WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME??????

Anyway the sides look better now as i have more growth .........i have no plans of putting strain on my right temple so only time will tell what am going to do next.

As for the left hand side....i may then again may not reattached the salvaged locks when it grows out a this space and see what happens.....

Hello Blog land!!

It's been a wee while.....

Okay even before i started locking (before October 2008) i had this small patch at the back of my head.... I ignored it and carried on doing my thing, you know retightening, going blonde, doing the henna thang then back to to admit didnt really help matters.

It had a mind of its own, so it got slightly bigger.....
Then funnily enough it began to send me signals it was in love.

Then I got really mad with it and the war had truly started!!!

Then i stopped colouring and stopped fighting and decided to go with God's own bling and work with what nature is saying is my destiny......why fight it....when i can just go along with it and go with the flow??

Watch out for what i did my next post.
