my locks 8.22.10

well here are my locks as of this august 22. theyre really growing long and full, and now it's more difficult to see the oddities that i call my parts lol. i've added a ton of little broken sterling silver jewelry pieces and most people tend to think they look really nice. i can also pull them all into a ponytail at the back of my head now lol, a feat i've been dying to do since i got them. they are officially 2 years and 4 months old, and the growth really isn't all that bad for that time frame, considering that they fell right to the lobes of my ears when i first started. i love it because my hair is ALWAYS done for nearly free...i spend appx. 10.00 a month to keep them up, including shampoo and beeswax. i used to use anything and everything to keep them in place but now i see that murrays dark beeswax does the job the best, so i use it. most hair grades can't take the stiffness and stickiness of beeswax, but within a week my hair has eaten it alive and needs another application after a good washing. and i find that the black wax is a bit stiffer hold than the light, so i've been using it. murrays is by far the best grade of wax for my hair, other than homemade, which i haven't been able to do for a while.
i'm currently thinking about tying some more silver wire around the roots of my locks in the front of my head to keep them in place. i did that in the summer of 2008 and it really helped alot. at this point however you have to look hard *or my hair has to have a fresh black dye job* to see the wire because my hair has basically twisted and locked all around them. thank goodness metal detectors don't go off when i walk through...although i'm hoping i don't have to have any cat scans/mri's ever again. ha.
