Lord have mercy let me tell you...My hair reacts...It does what it always wanted to do..SHRINK!!!!!....... Before I started my locs, this is what my hair always did>> When I would comb one side it would be full and puffy..then when I went to the next side to comb, by the time i went back to the puffy part it had already spring right back down towards the scalp...Rebellious is what my hair is to me...Now here is where everything becomes worry some... I started out with 4 inches of hair when I started my locks, within a couple months it grew about and inch and a half.. I was excited and measuring my hair and such..My hair was growing I'm telling you....But then later on down the line about 7 months prier to 8 ...I noticed my hair is looking shorter..I couldn't braid it like i use to with ease, they weren't curling as easy as before, and my friends and family would ask me if I cut my hair... Man can you imagine the disappointment I felt!!! My hair just seemed to be getting shorter and shorter....I came to learn that all it was doing was locking up and forming it's locks....But I"m doing better now knowing that they're locking up, no more stray hair at the ends. Like many have said....You will get your length back soon and you will be shocked to see how much your hair grows. In the meantime to maintain my insecurity I accessorise with earrings to bring out my features more, and style my hair.....Well its a long journey and I might as well try to enjoy the ride.....Bless!!
