8 Months

Hi everyone!

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.

DIY is the only way to go if you want peace of mind. Occasionally you could see a consultant for grooming. Am sure you'll find a way around your shoulder issues.

Good luck with whatever you decide on.

If you have been showing my blog any love you will see that DIY is the best thing. Yeah it is tedious and it takes time but it is worth it in the end. I too have arthritus but in my fingers and i refuse to let that hold me back. Just take your time. You never know until you give it a try!

Stay Blessed
