Baby locs and Jojoba don't mix

I just got my hair retightened and as soon as my consultant touched my hair she knew that I had used oil in my hair. She said that it is not irreonciliable damage but I've set myself back some. I have gaps in some of my locs now. I could have been that much closer to having matured locs. I was alternating between spritzing with Rosewater and with my concotion of distilled water with about two or three drops of jojoba oil in it. So, I stopped using my concotion and am only using the Rosewater now. I started using the jojoba mix because my hair just looked so dull to me. I have since figured it out though. I was trying not to wash to often, only about 1X every two weeks. However, I noticed that after a wash, my hair was georgeous. So, I wash about once or twice a week and as long as I braid and band it and seperate them after, I am not hindering the loc process in any manner. I love to wash it and then do a braid out. It is so full of body and it reflects the true length of my hair. I am truly loving this journey.

I go to the next level in about a week and a half. I'll be taking the consultant class in November, I can't wait. I am going to work with my consultant on a part-time basis initially with the intention of going full-time, God willing. Thanks for keeping me up in your prayers for all the praying peeps. The awesome thing about it is that she will get all of the clients, I just have to show up and be ready to work, God is most definently good!

I'll post some new pictures soon.

Hair and Weight

My consultant set me on a every 7 week retightening schedule. OK, at week 5, my hair was in dire need of a retighten. I don't have an appt. until NEXT WEEK. I will have to find something to do with my hair until then. Praise God that in November I will have taken the consultants class and I will be able to do my own hair! Yeah, that'll save me some money and make me some money, alright now :->

Oh well, just another day at the office. I am feeling better about my job though. I guess I have just accepted that this is where I am supposed to be for now and this is not the end of the road. I am walking into my destiny as we speak.

Oh, I went to Anais's Fotki album to check out her hair but got stuck in her fitness album. I had been on a workout plan for about 3 wks and hadn't lost any weight. I tried the Bikini Baywatch Breathing technique that Anais has documented and OMG! I actually see and feel where I am slimmer. I saw a difference in a matter of days! My girlfriend noticed it as well. This was all confirmed when I put on clothes that I was almost bursting out of and now they are loose! I am so excited over this. I said that I wasn't going to say anything to anyone until I knew that it was working for me. It is, so I'm talking. I have told some people about it and they were just as excited as I was, so I forwarded them the information about the program. Then there are the skeptics. Oh well for them, I attempted to share the knowledge that I had gained and will continue to shed these lbs. as they sit back and continue to complain about their weight.

I guess I've said enough for now. If anyone else has tried this program, I would love to hear about your results.

Toodles for now...

I have two more weeks before my next appt. yet, I have about 4 or 5 locs that have slipped. My 1st two months, I barely had any slippage but I am noticing more after my last retightening. I have done more braid out styles opposed to just free-stylin and I sometimes use a mist of distilled water and Jojoba oil in rotation with my Rosewater. I wonder if the braidout or the Jojoba oil is causing the slippage. I only put a few drops of it in the water. I'll be so happy after November because I would have taken the consultant class by then and will be able to maintain my own locs. Oh well...until next time.
