|do you see that one in the back trying to reach my neck? haha|
I'm very much appreciating the length nowadays and can't wait for what will come in the next five months. But for now the autumn winds are beginning turn and I've noticed my locs are loosing their moisture. They puffed up somewhat after a few days at the gym so I chose to retwist them without washing. I saturated my hair with my water bottle and applied castor oil to each dread. I liked the results. My hair felt soft and conditioned once they'd dried. I'm also appreciating the benefits of my satin scarf because it keeps in the moisture even now that we're starting to use indoor heating.
Oh and let me update you on my loc colouring experiment. The few that I coloured are doing well. Of course the hair is weaker and needs special attention but during the summer, while still using sweet almond oil to re-twist and moisturise, I'd already started using castor oil on the coloured locs only. I liked that the castor oil was thick and stayed on the surface longer almost like a gel coating but absorbed well after drying. It sealed in a lot of moisture - I recommend it.

Do you have an autumn or winter regime you'd like to share?
