I'm in a little lock funk right now...

I am so bored with my hair!!! While the added length has been a good thing over the years, it honestly has made my hair more difficult to syle. My lock puffs aren't puffy anymore, it takes a whole day to roll it and now that my locs are condensing they just hang straight with very little fullness. What's a girl to do? Please let me know if you have any suggestions.

(The pics below show my hair the day of my last retightening, the eve before and yesterday's freestyle and quick updo)

Thanks!

Well I won't begrudge you your funk but I have to tell ya that I think you are at a place in lockdom that alot of the rest of us are trying to get to too (lol).

So your locks have condensed and hang straight...I like the way that sounds (lol). That means your freestyle is a bit more predictable and you don't wake up with some locks sticking straight up in the air while others are sticking straight out to the side (lol).

I know you are bored but I still think your locks are lovely
(-:...get back to the good feeling about your hair as soon as you can!

When I realized that my hair was at the point where a braidout just wasn't giving my the fullness I wanted, that's when I started to think of cutting. I held out and then discovered the SoftSpike curlers. It gave me back the fullness I had been missing. After that, I found I really only wanted to cut some from the top, which I did. But it seems like you've mastered some pretty great up-do's! They look cute!

Let me say... Try the hair ties... Hair ornaments, and scarfs... Your hair looks amazing!

Girl you're rocking those locks. I think we are harder on ourselves than we need to be. By the way I was just able to post after you tagged me. Stop by and take a look. Be blessed.

I understand your feelings completely. I think you are at the point I was when I decided to go online and look for styling suggestions. That's when I found the yahoo group LockItUp. I wore a lot of half up half down styles and started looking for clips for thick hair. I use scarfs, clips and hair ties. My problem was and is the opposite of yours too much fullness. But regardless, your hair looks great and the lack of fullness does not show in your pictures.

I think your locks look wonderful. Have you thought about cutting them into a style that will make them look full?
