I had my first retightening on the 29th on March. Afterwards my hair was so fluffy and light I loved it so I have not spritzed it since and I dont think I will until I absolutely have to. I have added tea tree oil to my water and talk about potent. I put like one drop and the smell was so strong I had to dump out the bottle of water rinse it and I filled it back up and you could still smell it. My face has started to break out around my hairline, I'm not sure what exactly is causing this problem, I added the oil around the same time I had my wash so it could be the shampoo, or the oil or just stress who knows *sigh* I just need it to rectify itself and now! Hey both my birthdays are coming up the end of this week. My 1 month Locversary is on the 5th and my B-day is on the 4th YAY ME!

Sooo ummmarahhhh how about this April Fool's bug I mean really? This sucks I am at a computer center now instead of at home because I just don't know about these things but I don't think it really matters where I am anyway because I'm still logged in to my site so it can still reach my personal information. This is ridiculous!

Anywhoo My locks are progressing well I think I might feel the little balls on the end... maybe just wishfull thinking. I am totally loving this stage of my hair though. The little curly ques give me a nice wet and wavy look especially after I have washed it and rock the braid out. Yes thats right I've made my piece with the braid out, well sort of. The braid out for me works really well when I do pin-up styles. It gives my locks a nice wavy look and well.... I don't know it just looks better to me when wavy than straight in a pin-up. Now me and the braid out are still at war when it comes to wearing my hair out. It just doesn't work for me. Since my last post I have taken Dewdrop's advice and I've left my hair alone for about two weeks, really trying to just freestyle and not manipulate them as much. This has made me spritz a lot more to tame and liven up my locs though.

My second wash went a lot better I guess, My hair didn't feel the way it did after the first wash. This time it felt soft after the wash once I took my braids out, it still didn't feel squeeky clean and some of my scalp was a little dry but that quickly went away. I still didn't band I didn't feel like it. I havnt told my consultant though shhhhhhhh! It was too many braids to do all that and then to take them off when it dried and they would probably knot on the ends of my hair uhhhhg I just didnt want to so I didn't. I didn't have any problems with it though, I only had one little braid in the back slip and that's because my hair is really soft back there. Other than that my consultant says that my hair is staying very well. By no means to I reccomend anyone not banding, please follow your consultants instructions what works and doesn't affect me may not do the same for you. Now that I've written a disertation I have a question does anyone know where to get a microfiber towel from? I have found pesky little towel lint balls in the front of my locks and that just wont do.

Hey Kay, I didn't like the braid out look on my short hair, either. I mostly favored batu knots, and I would then put my hair up in a pineapple. Even now braidouts are ok, but I much prefer the soft, bouncy curls that I get with soft spikes.

You're looking good!

Not to comment all late, but I just got my SL's on march 23rd, and since I've been washing my hair,I have been breaking out as well. Thinking in the beginning that since im not using any products my face should remain clear. But its done the opposite. And now im more than sure it that darn starter shampoo that im not really a fan of.
