    I did DS 2's retightening yesterday. He was crying most of the time. I did some of it before his nap and the rest after he got up. I tried to sing to him and comfort him through it. It worked a little bit. Even DS 1 and DS 1's line therapist was trying to help. But he was on 1000. His hair looks good, though. It's growing out nicely and I had to put a new lock in. It also looks like he has hair coming in at the base of his neck, but I left those for now.

    I definitely need to separate his locks on the regular in between retightening because I had to clean up some of his parts and although it was minor (at least to me) he was hollering like crazy.

    DS 1's line therapist even mentioned several times to him that he was having a rough day. :lachen: She was intrigued by what I was doing so she asked me questions and I explained everything. She even got up close to watch and touched his hair. When she caught on she said "oh, it's just like crochet! I know how to crochet." So I told her yes, basically. Then she asked if it hurt and I told her yes, that's why he's upset and crying. But if I pull his hair the wrong way he cries, so....yeah.


    DS 1's other line therapist that comes on Fridays will also touch DS 2 (and DS 1's) hair. They better be glad I like them. :lachen:

    Yes I got a detox wash last time to get rid of gel on my hairline. I didn't use gel this time but its been almost 6wks since my hair was washed.

    Did you have any problems getting all the shampoo to wash out? And yay for new growth! I always get excited to see and assess my new growth and DS 2's new growth before/during a retightening.
    No I didn't have a problem getting the shampoo out because at the end I took the stocking cap off and just let the water run thru my hair til it was clear.

    You did a good job!!!! Your hair looks great. If you did this by yourself, you knocked it out of the park! I always thought Toni Morrison's locks were beautiful also.[/QUOTE]
    Thank you. I did it all myself. It only took about 2 hours. It wasn't hard sleeping on the clips either last night. I hope my hair locs in 8 months to year.

    Thanks, @firecracker. It’s a work in progress. I can’t wait until I fall in love with the way it looks. I love the journey but most of the time I'm looking crazy. :drunk:

    I got my hair retwisted. I'm 3.5 into my loc journey and I feel like I'm no way near being locd. Before I got it retwisted I saw progress but when I took pics of my hair after the wash it just looked like a loose natural. Also my locs don't feel as compact as it did before my retwist. But on the positive side I love how my hair turned out.

    These pics are after the wash and retwist.

    Your hair still looks great! Do you think your loctician switched products on you? Could she have put conditioner in your hair or washed it too rough?

    Thank you. No she didn't switch products and she gently washed my hair. She said my parts are still in tact.

    I've been meaning to order this. I don't think you'll have any problems with his products.

    I’ve only used it once but I really liked my results. Today is wash day so this will be the second time. I love his other recommendations. He is hard to watch though...LOL.

    Ended up getting rescheduled again for yesterday. I ended up scheduling a loc Consultation next Tuesday with a lady that does traditional locs. I am going to see what she says about combining my Sisterlocks into small traditional locs. I’m over having Sisterlocks now all the consistent rescheduling is taking the fun/joy out of having them.
