yarn intergreted into my locs

I have found a way of adding locs to my locs using a combination of yarn and fake hair. It's nearly undetectable. The only drawback is, it takes a bit of time to do. Eventually it will have to be taken out and re-done. I'm sure I can offer this to ppl, but you can't really DIY (I managed with lot's of help). It really has to be done by another person bc they can see the gaps at the top or back of your head and you can't.

Not bad eh?

It started on friday 23rd 2012. We woke early. The house was filled with relatives and close friends of my mother. Huge pots of Okra, meat stew bubbled merrily away. Mountains of fried fish, pepper and kenkey. Akara(bean doughnut) Coco(millet pap) gallons of tea/soft drinks bread. We were asked to present the sponge soap perfume etc(pictured) for our mum. Traditionally for washing the body, now a ritual. After this we went to the funeral home to prepare mum.( I had help wash her bc Im a daughter. My older sis couldnt hack it) The hearse took her to her dad's then mum's houses amid gunshots singing dancing etc. Finally they brought her home. We'd decorated a room for her.She was laid in state. We added a few finishing touches to her make-up and and friends did the file past. To be contd.
