I went from this back in April...To Clairol's Textures and Tones Flaming Desire
To this! Can you see the difference?
I colored my locs, then went to a 'professional' stylist who retwisted my hair and gave me a 'trim'. As soon as I walked in her salon, she told me I needed a trim. Uh, scissors near my locs? No ma'am! Shawnta taught me that, hehe. I decided to go ahead and get them trimmed, since I never really come to a shop for maintenance. After all, it would be a 1 time thing right? :s
All in all, I was pleased as she cut a lot of weight and bulk out of my hair (literally with scissors she went up and down the sides, cutting down buds, frizz and cut down my thick swollen ends or completely cut them off). I at first felt sad because my ends held the start of my loc journey...dyed and comb coiled. Then I felt relieved because I began to be intimidated by curl styles with my thick locs. But now at a more manageable size, I'm excited about trying curls again!
I'm still having a love affair with my MAC Gray Utility eyeliner pencil, that I used on my bottom lids. *heart*
Do you cut or color your locs? Why or why not?
