Just Because We Don't Have To - Part II

In the hushed tones of a golf announcer:  "When last we left, BlaqKofi was on the precipice of deciding the fate of this curl set before her upcoming retightening session.  Let's see how this drama plays out..." 

Reader Denise called it, "Of course your conscious made you wash before your next retightening." She's right. I did, and here are the results clean, styled, retightened locks.  

Style:  Braid Out
Washed locks, separated and towel dried. Braided locks into about 15-20 sections.  Used fewer locks in smaller sections to assists with drying time.  Set braids on Soft Spike curlers to give the ends a more manicured look.

Left braids and SS in over night. Following morning, removed SS, took braids down (the smaller braids made for a more time consuming process. You want to carefully handle locks when unbraiding, especially younger locks. A client was braiding her younger locks too tightly, causing slippage when unbraiding.)  The smaller sections resulted in a tighter crinkle pattern.

One week later, I'm looking tired after a full day of retightening my clients, but the set still looks nice.

Remember, just because we don't have to, doesn't mean that we shouldn't. I'm on a two week wash rotation now.  We can always find a way to do that which we are committed to.  And I'm committed to Sisterlocks!
