Mohawks n' Braid locs

It's been a long while since I've updated this blog. I'm still on my journey. I decided to take a little hair combing break and put the braids back in. I'm 27 weeks and 4 days pregnant at the moment. I kind of got tired of getting up looking crazy and having to fix my hair. So braids it is. While I put them in I did the big chop. I cut inches of my hair. So it's all natural in there! Yay! I did this about 2 years ago and loved my natural hair when I took the braids out. I'm one that doesn't think she can sport the tiny fro. I'm not comfortable with it. Some ladies look great with it. I don't think I would. It does make life easier for me. I tried to contact the consultant in my area months ago but she hasn't returned my phone call. Oh well. I might just find a way to do mine at home! Any how this is me now. Pregnant with the braids. I was 24 weeks here.

My girls now have braid locs! I'm proud of myself for doing the DIY. It's saving me lots of money. They are doing quite well. I started to re tighten them for the 2nd time. My son is getting locs too. His started out with twists. He's been sporting this Mohawk since last August. He gets tons of compliments on it. It is rather cool. I do need some great moisturizing products for our hair. I prefer something all natural. I've been trying to keep up with the lock it up yahoo group. There are so many good suggestions and questions coming through. Anyhow if you have a home recipe or a product that you like please leave me a comment telling me about it. Here are my girls, and my son. One daughter has her hair curled and the other straight. The girls also just got braces earlier this month!
