Hello loc family! This month just on a whim, I sat up last Saturday night and started retightening the back half of my head with my Nappyloc tool. I didn't plan it but just did it. It felt good to to this since I scheduled my next retightening for September which would make two months since my last one. Then I kept working on my loc's through the week, until........... I dropped my tool down my sink. Now I knew better than to stand in front of my sink doing that. What in the world! LOL Oh well, I went ahead and ordered another. Should have it sometime this upcoming week. Also I realized after my Friday shampoo, that I need to order more Starter Shampoo. I know some ladies have mentioned that it didn't work for them for one reason or another, but I haven't had any problems.
What I have noticed about my Sisterlocks, is that it truly has loc'd over this past year. My middle child and I just measured a few of my locs and came up with 4 - 4 1/2 inches loc'd. So that's the growth in one year. Then I have approx. 3 inches to on some 4 inches of permed ends. My hair if pulled down hits my shoulder since my little chop July 3rd. So when I hit my 2nd year anniversary, I think I'll have about 8 inches loc'd. Oh gosh that will be so nice. Hopefully my then, after a final cut of all permed ends, then the ends will seal, and all the locs will hang straight. Due to having the different textures I don't freestyle. Anyone with permed ends freestyling? If so be sure to comment so I can check out your blog with pictures. My hair is so thick, I haven't even tried to see what it would look like. I continue to curl with Bantu Knot's, Caruso Steam Roller, or due Braidouts.
A final note. I'm considering having my middle daughter who just turned 9 last weekend, get Sisterlocks. Her natural hair hangs down her back when pulled straight. I've talked to her about it. She's quite tenderheaded and hair combing if not straightened out with a flat iron is a whole lot of drama. If anyone has loc'd their daughter's hair, let me now how it's gone. I have read a few people's blogs about their little girls journeys. All I can say is wonderful! Well that's it for now yal. I included a crazy picture I did with my Photo Booth program on my Macbook laptop. It was fun. See....Sisterlocks look good in all kinds of ways. LOL
Love, peace, and no hair grease.
