So it's 9 months and a few weeks and, to be honest, the process has shifted from -
What my hair looks like?
What's my soul looking like?
My hair has loc'd, that's for sure and the theory of antenna connection is becoming more of a reality as my world (my relationships and work) shift.
Although the journey of self discovery has alsways been something I've been interested and involved in my faith level has been less than the required mustard seed. And I take away any religious basis of the word faith here - and simple mean the complete belief in life. The complete and utter confidence that whatever is for me I shall have. And the utter assurance that what I need over what I want is by design.
At 35 (3+5=8) New beginnings and change is something I yearn for. Up until this time I have lived quite a comfortable life, and (not to discount this blessing and privilige) I think comfortable living stunts your growth. My hero's and heroines are people that have survived but refuse to live in survival mode.
It's so simple but not easy.
Mooji helps :)
Ok.. so my current routine consists of washing my hair every two weeks - alternating between clarifying shampoo one week and a moisture shampoo the next wash. I've made my own concoction of a moisturiser - which is Paul Mitchell, The conditioner; Aloe Vera Juice; Purified Water and LOVE!
I spray with this weekly and seal in with an oil - olive oil or jojoba oil.
I was spraying with warm water, and putting a plastic cap over my hair every morning and let sit whilst a bathed... but the locs started smelling damp and I wasn't feeling that at all, so I now just spray (without steam) every couple of days rather than every single day!
Of course, I wear a satin scarf to sleep, and I recently purchased a satin pillow case should I get lazy.
But as usual - here is my vlog in two parts on youtube
