Hello, lovelies. Today is the 2-month mark of growing my locs. Things are going splendidly so far, even though my hair looks crazier and more fuzzy. But it’s interesting to see them form. They seem to have a mind of their own. The color is fading, but I’m hoping to dye them soon. If not, then no big deal. It’s a good thing I’m a tribal belly dancer – I can cover my gray and dark brown roots with flowers and a scarf.
Before we dive into the OOTD and makeup, let’s talk hair. First, here are the hair products that I no longer need. I feel free already!
Now for the products I do use. Right now, it’s just residue-free shampoo. For recommendations on which shampoos to buy for washing dreadlocks, you can go to the Raging Roots Studio website and go to their “Recommended Shampoo List“. I bought the Shea Moisture® Shampoo from Amazon.
Here’s what I wore. I bought the dark blue tunic from a fashion show that I attended back in February (DC Fashion Week). Most of the other clothing were either brightly colored or pastel, so I was pleased to find something dark:
Here’s my face. It wasn’t too hot outside, so I went a little heavy on the eye makeup:
Here’s how my hair has progressed so far:
My hair is gradually losing its length, but the locs are starting to show. My hair will continue to shrink until the locs start to mature – then I’ll start gaining some length (hopefully). It really is interesting seeing what my hair can do when left alone (not entirely – I do separate my hair). Can’t wait to see how they look next month.
Love & Shimmies,
