Retightening

I had my first retightening session with Gregory Day at his South Austin salon. Let me tell you, it was a relaxing experience. I was able to read my book on my Kindle and we chatted a bit here and there. No pain, and he even set his salon chair to recline back when he was ready to retight the top front. Ok, that was nice yal. I almost thought I would fall asleep. Yes his charge is higher per hour than the previous consultants I have been too, but it was well worth it. He finished my session in 2 hours and also cut some of my permed ends off. We'll gradually cut them off at each session. I was just thinking that my next retightening is scheduled for early July which will be a few short weeks shy of my 1 year lockaversary. I can't believe how fast time has flown by. I'm considering at that appointment to have him give me a little grooming, or the next appt. after that. Overall my SL experience has been positive. I now have had two great people maintain my hair which is Therza whom again moved back to Memphis, and now Gregory.

Oh on that point I will say their are some differences between having Therza maintain my hair compared to Gregory. With Therza it was like hanging out with an old girlfriend. She is good at what she does, and we chatted the whole time about life. With Gregory, he's good with 14 yrs. of experience, but since he's a guy, mostly I just relaxed and read my book. We chatted some, but not the same as with Therza. I'm not complaining though because sometimes I prefer to just sit back and relax without conversating. I work all week and like that little bit of pampering and peace. Yal know what I'm talking about. So now I have a man who takes care of my nails, and another my hair. LOL


Love, peace, and no hair grease.

Hello,

I've been going to Greg for almost 4 yrs. He installed my sisterlocks (he also installed my husband's brotherlocks last yr.)and he is the only person I have ever been to. Yes, his price is a little high, but he does quality work.
Good luck on your journey!

Hi, I also live in the Austin suburbs. I would love to have a Sisterlock gathering. I have tried to plan them in the past to no avail. If you ever do get one started, please post to the Lock it Up group so that we can all attend.

Thanks, and your Sisterlocks look great.

Girl, you something else, but I'm sho feelin' ya. My install is scheduled for July 15/16. When I read about your being able to recline I thought, "Yah; that's the business". I might try and see if I can tactfully mention that to my consultant. LOL

Well, one thing, girlfriend is going to pick me up, allow me to spend the night, take me back. Geez, how's that for customer service?

I am so pumped this time for some reason.

Yaw'll, have a good weekend.

Hi Karla,

First, thanks for reading my blog. Yes, Gregory Day is still doing Sisterlocks, although no longer on the Sisterlock website. I have a retightening appt. next week with him. His phone number is 512-280-3731. He's located in South Austin. Give him a call when you're ready and hit me up as well. Would love to meet you.
