For me the challenge isn’t to be different but to be consistent. – Joan Jett
The year has just begun and I’m already experiences a lot of changes in my life. I recently moved to DC and started working at a great company. I dyed my locs red and finally realized my dream of becoming a redhead. I had the chance to see some sights in DC and pose for some pictures with my brother and his friend.

Thanks for the great shots, Ye. You can find more of his work here.
Had a challenging project in class today, using tools I was very unfamiliar with. The whole ordeal had me seeing red and waiting to hit something with a bat. I stumbled a bit but I learned that I’m a graphics perfectionist and novice at the same time. Very interesting combo.
Today’s choir color was orange. I struggled to find something to wear because I had no orange dress (I need to fix that). I did, however, have orange tights and orange earrings, as well as a tweed jacket that has orange threads in it.
I’ll admit that this outfit was a bit forced, but at least I have orange on! My favorite part of my ensemble, was the side-swept hair. I like the view in the upper left-hand corner the best.
Happy Sunday from the Komo sisters. Enjoy our VEDA video of us singing earlier this week:
Earlier this week, my hair was feeling dry, dusty, and dirty! I had to do something about it. I knew I had to wash and retwist, but I was looking to try a clarifying wash on my hair for the first time.
I researched and found a recipe for an Baking soda & ACV rinse. I followed the step-by-step instructions.
Watch the process here:
The result was a squeaky-clean scalp and refreshed locks. I followed up the rinse with a retwist and some loc knots.
Here are the results:
I noticed that my hair is always in curly styles so I never see how long my hair is. A friend took a length check picture for me and I was amazed by how much it’s grown!
The loc knot curls are very similar to the pipe cleaner curl, but a little less work to “install”.
See the video:
The curls held up, even though I only used water and no setting lotion. I love it!
These days I have been protecting my hair with some Marley twists. I know it sounds crazy, but it’s possible because I did it! My sister, cousin, and I twisted my hair. Watch the video to see how I twisted my locs using Marley aka dreadlock hair.
