When will the madness end?

Sometimes I get so frustrated with my now 20 month old locks that I can just screem! When will they ever completely LOCK?? When will my ends lose the buds? When will the right side of my head catch up with the left side of my head? Will they ever completely mature?? Why, why, why??? I'm so tempted to cut those ends but I promised myself that I would not cut for a whole year. Next month will be a year since my last cut, can I do it?

Ugh.... guess I'll have to accept the fact that my 20 old locks will never look like my sistah BlaqKofi . She and I were locked weeks a part and her's are so slamming beautiful! I can honestly admit, I sometimes experience loc envy when I see my good friend picture perfect SL's. It's all good though, shout out to you Blaqkofi, you are always working your locks and a sweet inspiration. You hold a spot on my She-ro (hero) list. LOL :)

As I research my ancestry Creole lineage I guess I'll have to put the blame on my people for giving me that fab bunching hair. Oh well, at least I didn't get the ears... Family joke..

Hey, have I mentioned how much "I love my locks???"

This sounds like a cry for help! OK ladies, we need to do an intervention...Creyole - step away from da scissors!! Do we need to revisit Brunsli's post of a year ago when she was feeling this same way? Of course, your locks will lock - their locks! (lol) Just like children, locks and hair texture are all different. And only you, see your locks as you see them. I see a beautiful lady with some slammin' locks. And I know it's only gonna get betta & betta. Our 2 year anniversary is coming up in a few months. Let's continue to hang tough together and celebrate our naturnaless. We'll take another DFW Sisterlocks Gathering comparison photo soon...and you'll be sayin' "remember when I was wondering when will the madness ever end?"

Creyole - I must be missing something. They look locked to me. Most of your ends look like mine do - some sealed, some sitll with little curlies. Either way, you work them well. They always look good to me! Is Praline experiencing the same conditions as you?

Blaq - thanks hearing my cry. Amazing what a good night of rest will do. I resisted the scissors last night and I think I'm feeling a lot better now. Thanks much!

Brenda, good question about Prealine. I could probably take her locks down without any problems after a using a good conditioner at this point. But she is only at 9 months so comparatively speaking I would think we were at the same stage at 9 months. The difference is, does not have the bunching problem.

I think since learning so much about SL's I've been able to give her more consistent attention and retightenings.

I love that shot of your locks! I think your locks look great from the photo, but I know you have a much better view! Just continue to hang in there your locks will come into place sooner or later!

Oh my goodness Creyole - NO scissors! I think your hair is beautiful. I can't see anything wrong with your hair and I have put my glasses on!

Hey Creyole:

From the pics, your looks like they are loced. Anyway, I think your hair is absolutely beautiful. Please don't cut them.

Girrrrl what is yo problem! Your locks look good and they look lokt. I have some of that shonuf nappy, break a comb kinda stuff so I thought at 10 months I'd be like Blaqkofi fully loct. But it ain't happend yet. I've read that my kinda naps locs quikly. But it ain't happend yet, at least not fully. But since ya know some scripcha let me lay some onya. 'Let PATIENCE have It's perfect work.' Let go of the sizzas and the thoughts of sizzas and let your hair do what it gone do, when it's ready.
