2 year anniversary

I actually didn't take pictures on the exact day of my 2 year anniversary - I forgot! I took pictures on 28 July - technically 1 day early. Why you may ask? Well I was having too much fun at Rotterdam Carnival and well by the time I got back the time just flew by, but hey 1 day early is better than 1 day late LOL.

I took too many pictures of the costumes, but I really like the fact that I have an ok angle on these two pics:

Whilst eating breakfast I had another lady comment positively on my hair after explaining what sisterlocks was - briefly (I was enjoying breakfast way too much) and jotting down the website I felt I had done a good deed Lol. I felt for her as she stated that she could not find anyone in Rotterdam to handle her afro hair so got it texturized.

This picture shows some of the handy-work I had to do at the front - three becomes two! I lost a lock to the front so have basically twisted the a little bit of the half fallen out lock onto the strong lock and in doing so have tried to maintain a centre parting (the twisting is not quite complete in this pic):

Hot summer days + one wash = goodbye new baby locks

Today I washed my hair and braided and banded the few new locks I have at the back of my hair. The hot days have pretty much loosened them up but this wash was all it took to undo the baby locks.

Here are the photos before and after the wash:
