Last year I began my transition from relaxed hair to natural hair. I began using protective styles while letting my natural hair grow and retaining the length I had. By this past July I had finally cut of all of the relaxed ends of my hair. I made the decision to loc my hair, but I wanted to wait for a year to get it done. Meanwhile I was researching the different ways to loc hair, maintenance and anything else I needed to know. I had initially wanted to get Sisterlocks, but through my research I saw that the price and installation was more than I was willing to spend. I have been doing my own hair and friends and friends of friends for years and didn't see the benefit of finding someone who was trained to do them. So I decided to do mine with two strand twists and let them cultivate from there. So far my hair is the size that I want ( a little bigger than Sisterlocks but the same basic style) and now I have been looking for the perfect tool to tighten my locks. I saw that you can use a latch hook but it's too big for my locks. I found the site that created the Nappyloc tool and it would be perfect for me. Now because I am crafty and like to make my own things, I want to figure out how to make mine myself but I think I will buy two of the tools if I run into too much of a hassle to make them, especially since they come in different sizes and I need the first two sizes that they make.

I think it's time for me to have a jewelry party. I have so many pieces of jewelry that I know I will never get to wear. Might as well find someone who will get some use out of them. Who wants to get together and have fun shopping for inexpensive pieces that no one else will have?!
