Two Questions...

Two questions…

Question one: What’s the longest you guys have gone between retightenings? Initially, I was going every four weeks, now I am going every 6 weeks, and I am beginning to feel like I could go every 7 to 8 weeks based on the middle section of my head, but the front would def need to be done sooner.

The fact that I am not waiting longer to get my hair done, it has prompted me to learn to do my RETIs myself. I know some people took the class, and others have not. I definitely can’t afford it, especially with me trying to go to grad school. I need to save anyway I can. So that leads me to question two: For those of you who use the NL tool, and looked through the instructions, do you find it was easy to reti your hair? I know there are LOTS of Youtube vids out there. I am thinking of asking my stylist to show me how. At least I would be able to do my edges to start.

For those of you who took the class, how much was it? I have searched for a class in ATL and I didn’t see anything, but I could have been looking at something wrong or I could have overlooked it. I dunno, maybe I will try to save up for that too, but I am thinking of buying the NL tool.

*UPDATE* I did find the cost of the class. $@250, not bad, was it worth it??

Hello everyone!

I have not tried the ‘Let’s Jam’ experiment just yet, but I am going to do it! I just wanted to drop a quick note and see how you guys are doing. I know it’s coming up on a year for a lot of us, and I have a question: Is the status of your hair where you thought it would be thus far? How are you feeling right now? Would you have done anything differently?

You ever wish that you could have that smoothe look at the roots that traditionals have after a reti? I do. One of my BFFs has traditional locs and I swear everytime she has a reti I find myself becoming green with envy. It's so smoothe looking, and I know it has a lot to do with the method (I suppose). I just wish there was a way to achieve that same look. Obviously since my hair is being knitted (so to speak) it won't have the same look as palm-rolling. I mean, don't get me wrong, I can def tell the difference after a reti. My scalp is visble again and so forth. Still, I wish I could really tame these fly away hairs. It would be nice to be able to apply something to the loc. Just my rant.

I am wrong as HELL...

... for not keeping up this blog. I have not been motivated, and I have been a bit busy. I cut all of the straight ends off so that took away from length, but it's all good. Out with the old and in with the new is what V said as she cut my ends. Anyway, I will do better in the upcoming months. Here is a picture I took this past Saturday. I have not been rolling it or anything lately. I am getting color in 2 months to celebrate my loc-a-versary! Anyway, update again soon... Oh, and I know I am late, but Merry XMAS, HAPPY NEW YEAR, and then some!
