I just wanted to post a shot of what my locs are doing now. They are getting much tighter & are less springy & spongy. The braid pattern is disappearing. Some of the ends have bulbs on em, as opposed to the ringlets they once had. Here is a comparison shot. Can you tell?
As you can see in the pic on the top, the ends of my hair are really curly. The pic on the bottom, not so much. I still have a few curls, but definitely not as many! YAY!!
