First DIY

Ok well I washed my hair a few days ago and decided that I had enough new growth to begin my retightening before it got out of control. I got my little Sisterlock box equipped with all my tools, clips mirror and TV and I was ready to go. This is what I found on my quest:

1. Even though I am no stranger to doing my own hair, braids, cornrows, and various styles for the first time in years my arms were killing me shortly after I began.

2. I found it way easier to just feel my way through rather than looking in the mirror while doing my rotation.

3. I don't know if its because I have a new tool but it was really hard for me to push down the spring. This was the main reason I stopped with finishing the whole left side, which was my plan.

4. After two hours I only had about half of the left side of my head done mainly dues to the painful spring issue. I wasn't really tired but my index finger and my thumb really hurt after pushing on the tool the whole time. Does anyone else have this problem?

5. Surprisingly once you get started the rotations are pretty easy and you just begin to flow. Like I said the only hold up was the spring hurting my fingers.

6. To those that have taken the retightening class did you guys get both tools or just two of the same one?

7. I still feel that taking the class was well worth it because I can do my hair on my time I may not be as fast as the pros but I know its a work in progress and it will get better! :-)

Thats all folks

I have not taken the class but I prefer the hook tool. The design of the clip toolcan cause unraveling at the tips with some hair types.
