Retightening Firsts

I went eight weeks between retightenings for the first time ever. It wasn't intentional - life just got hectic. I will do everything possible not to let that happen again.
Another first - it took Gigi 3 hours to retightened my hair. My appointment has never lasted more than 2 hours. Another motivator to never wait that long again.
On the positive tip, my head feels wonderful and I swear it's as if I gained 2 inches of growth. I was feelin' kinda cute and sexy tonight so I took some photos.
I know that I'm out of sequence - cause I owe you Part II of "What's Blaq Been Up To." It's coming - a promise...

Not much new to report on my lock regimen. Same ole, same ole. My Sisterlocks remain healthy and strong. And, of course, I'm LOVIN' them.
I'm at a stage now where I don'tworry about them.

The style above is a week old bendable roller set. I washed.
Let partially air dry then set with Lottabody.
I sit under the hair dryer for about 3o minutes.
(Especially if I wash in the evenings.)
This ensures my locks fully dry by the next morning and provides an even longer lasting curl.
I pull up at night in a pony (I use my B-Tie. I use that thing
everyday and I only have one. I need to order more.)

In the mornings I cover during my shower,
get out, shake it like one of those
tv models, run my fingers through it and off I go!
My curls even last through my retightening yesterday.

Anyone reading this who isn't locked -
why wouldn't you want this freedom?
Come over to the natural side - afterall it's where you belong.

Peace & blessings, Blaq

I so want to be like you when I grow up! You are an inspiration to me as from your lovely Sisterlocks, beauty, and health! Anyhow I couldn't help but notice something intersting on your left hand I apologize for being too nosy. However it did catch my attention and I don't think I've noticed it before! It may be nothing, I may be late sorry again. Have a good one.

I'm so glad that you're back! I've been reading your blog for the past few months and I'll admit I missed reading the updates. My family even teased me saying that I should e-mail you and tell you how much I admire you and think my locks will mature to look like yours. It's true! Even though I try to play off the teasing. I believe you have a beautiful spirit a wonderful role model to young women. Keep the updates coming hope all is well with you and your's happy new year.
