    I use a plastic yarn needle on his hair and a coil-less safety pin on a couple that are too thick to pass through the eye of the yarn needle. I use the same tools in my hair as well.

    I finished interlocking my hair a couple of days ago. I didn’t do any coloring, since it didn’t fit into my schedule this week, so I’ll color next month.

    the results of the retie are cool. Excited to try a style in the fall.

    Oh no! I totally understand how you feel. Hopefully it won’t be too rough. But when it starts, just know it will grow back.

    Ugh...post partum shedding is the worse! I don't think my hair ever completely recovered. Just try to stay on top of your prenatal vitamins and whatever other supplements you're taking that might help. Hopefully it won't be too bad.

    I still have some short ones and a little thinning from the last time. I'm hoping it sticks to the same area but we will see

    Hi ladies! Hope everyone is healthy and safe. I did my own retightening two weeks ago. It was my first time and I think I did a good job. I had to. My loctician upped her price by $40 back in March. Then right before my scheduled May appt called to say the price would be another $50 on top of the new price the because of corona virus. Increase of $90 overall since January!!!!!!! I would have only been 7 weeks post. I cancelled the appointment and did it myself. Took me 4 days and I only had 1 casualty. My mom asked me to do her retightening which I will be doing next week. I’ll be doing my next 2 retightenings. Then will decide if I will go back to my loctician.... IF she goes back to the regular prices.

    That’s ridiculous I would start looking for somebody new now. The fact that she would price gouge at this time, in this economy when a lot of people are worried about jobs etc
    My consultant raised her prices by $30 after a few years but it was bc she moved from her living room to her shop and we also live in a high COL area so I would expect rent to go up at some point
    $90 in 4 months she is out of her mind

    Love it! I’ve been a DIY-er since my relaxed days. It’s a process. I’m sure you did a great job!
