7 Months and Puffy

So on December 19 I was officially sisterlocked for 7 months. I had some pictures on my phone after I did a soft spike set post-retightening but they inadvertently got erased. For now all I have is one not-so-good pic from days later after all the curls fell.

My locs in the back are puffy. They have swollen some, which I am told is a natural part of the locking process, but the ones in the front haven't changed much. Here is one of my locs and you can see it is a little fatter than when I first started:

I am getting some balls at the end of my locs but most of them end up falling off so I don't know that it's actually locking yet. Here are some close up pics of some locs that I think are beginning to seal:

I'm still being patient with my hair and just letting it do its thing. Just for fun, here is a comparison pic of the back of my hair at day one and at about 6 1/2 months:

  1. Your locks are thickening up nicely.

    The balls at the end of your locks, also known as buds, seal your lock. I had many balls fall off as well, which is fine.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
