5 months







In other news Today and tomorrow marks my 5 month lockversary. I go to get retightened next week and my hair is doing very well I can feel the change in my texture my curly ques aren't quite as curly as they once were and I can feel many bumps and lumps up and down the shaft of most of my locks. Also there are many many balls on the ends of my locks. I have only had one lock slip this time and it was on my hairline. I have washed my hair twice so far and it pleases me to say that the majority of my build-up is gone. There are still two locks that I see which still have build up but its not nearly as much as it was. This leads me to believe that the culprit was the baby lotion I used on my face. A while back I ran out of face cream and I started using baby lotion it left my face clear and cool and did not break me out like most things do so I stuck with it. Now my consultant did warn me about not using baby shampoos in my hair because they can cause a protein buildup in the hair but it just didn't dawn on me that baby lotion might do the same thing it is contact the hair from the skin near my hairline which is wear most of the problem was, around my hairline and in the back of my hair near my neck where I would also put the lotion. Now whose to say that this was the real problem I don't know but I continued to use the dr. bronner lavender shampoo followed by the SL shampoo and its going away. Other than the texture change there has not really been much change in length this month or at least not from what I can see. My mothers says differently.

I have also decided to take the retightening class in Philadelphia, I am relocating and I really don't want to have to go through searching for a consultant and all that stuff so I have decided to take the class at the end of this month and set another appointment with my consultant in September after I retighten just so she can let me know how I did. Then for the future I will follow up with a consultant every three months or so. Or at least that is the plan we will see what life brings along.

Hi Kay. I'm new to your blog but I will definitely follow your journey for now on. I'm looking forward to growing out my relaxer and then getting sisterlocks (hopefully January 2010). I have a blog too where I have been chronicling my hair journey. Please stop by and provide advice when you can.

Your locs are looking so pretty. Good for you for taking the class. Now that I know how to retight mine, I have picked up speed. I still will see Gregory, but this month I did my own.

Hey I was planning to take the retightening class in Philadelphia as well in Sept. Only problem is that I will be on vacation. However, there is a salon located in Philly that provides retightening training from a master trainer quarterly so I'm signing up for that one. Where are you relocating to?

Most definitely your hair has grown and glad to hear the buildup issue is coming to a close. I can only imagine that it was a pain.
