Just a quick 1 month and 1 week update

I finally took pictures after my first retightening. I did not think my locs had changed, but clearly they have. I hope that breakage spot in my crown fills in. It seems like it wants to. I should note that my hair is parted just so you can see the 'spot' I am talking about. It's not easily seen once I pull my hair back, and my hair has been rolled in rods and misted with water. I want it to grow like in a hurry! Patience, patience, patience.

First retightening coming up!

This is definitely a test of patience on my end because I have not washed my hair in almost a month, and I am also a victim of hair breakage in the crown that you can’t even really see, and this area happens to be my stress spot, so of course it ITCHES like crazy. For all you folks who suffer from hair breakage, I feel your pain, but without a doubt this has been the best thing that I could have done to promote hair growth because even after the BC 5 years ago, all of my hair grew back EXCEPT this area. Crazy-weird, I know, and not one of the 3 dermatologists could tell me anything other than “The scalp looks healthy, nothing is wrong, now get out!” Well they didn’t say the last part, but they may as well have said it since I was only in there less than 15 minutes and that is not including my wait time.

Anyway, I am so ready to get my hair retightened. I am looking forward to my loctitian washing my hair. Since the weather has been funky here in Atlanta; raining one day, cold the next, I have been taking advantage,walking in the rain ,and letting the cool water touch my scalp. That is just a treat to me! I never appreciated rain until now. The only product that I have been using is Taliah Waajid Moisture Clenz and that is because I have been crazy strict; no essential oils, washing, nothing! I want to avoid slippage if at all possible and so far so good!
