(4mths)Today, my locs are 1yr old. The year has flown by so quickly. I remember seeing people sign off their posts with 'sls 1yr' 'sls 3 yrs'or 'sls 6yrs' when I was 'sls 0 yrs',and wondering when I'd be able to say 'sls 1yr'. Now I can. The ride has been pretty smooth. From here on, it can only get better. No more unraveling, we're sleeping through the night, no more crying for attention every 2 mins, we're eating solids, walking a little, generally being more reasonable. Aaah the joys of loc-parenting. Well, there were a few hairy moments when I felt sorry I had taken down my bls for sls, but I got over those humps pretty quickly. I am grateful to Dr Joanne for creating this particular loc-ing system bc it has helped me to get the look I really wanted with minimum hassles. Folks it was worth the money. 1yr on and I can say sincerely - I have no regrets. Here are some comparison pics, day 1, 4mths, 1 yr.
