yay, so my locs are really starting to look like locs. lol. i am sooo excited about that. as i told you all before my hair was soo frizzy thus preventing my hair from matting together. i did the pipe cleaner curls and when i washed my hair to retwist them, i noticed that my hair was not very frizzy at all. not sure of the science but the pipe curls permanently cut back the frizz in my hair. So there is hope my people, be encouraged!
