I am now 8 months into my journey and my Sisterlocks are coming along. I had my retightening appt. last weekend. Since my consultant moved back to Memphis (miss her so much) I had to see someone else. Let me say that I won't be going back to that person. It was the most painful retightening ever and it took way too long. I'm used to my appts. taking only about 2 hours, to the very longest 2 1/2 hours and pain free and pleasant. Well this wasn't the case. So....... I made my next retightening appt. with the only other person here in Austin. His hourly charge is steep but I have no other solutions. I just can't see driving all the way to the Dallas or Houston areas where they have more consultants and trainees. I have also considered learning how to retighten myself, but I have arthritis my in left shoulder, so that doesn't appeal to me. If I ever get desperate, I may have to just suffer through the DIY. I watched a video on a fellow lockers site (sorry I don't know the name) and she made her own tool with a paperclip. I tried it and it works. She shows how to do the 4 point rotation with ease. Anyway yal....pray for me (LOL). I did call my previous consultant in Memphis and told her I miss her. I'm happy that she's doing well. If anyone here is from Memphis reading my blog, yal are blessed to have Therza back.
Peace, love, and no hair grease.
