4th retightening























Here are some pics at 7mths, after my 4th retightening. As you know I've been contemplating DIYing, but I ended going to Angela to get it done. (Parking was a nightmare,probably due to time of day - 4pm. I ended up parking about 1mile away and was 1/2hr late for my appt-not a good thing.) I don't quite feel ready to tackle 100s of locs on my own head and I'm not sure about my arms. I'm also re-tightening Arashia 's 350 or so locs which means I would be doing both hers and mine at the same time. Hmmm.... I don't think so. I found a new tool called a bodkin. I think it's a yarn needle. It's really good and so cheap,90p. I've split and repaired a few of Arashia's locs. I'm also picking up speed with this retightening thing.Maybe when I'm faster I'll DIY and celebrate..... finally, bc I won't have no more parking problems, walking for about a mile, sweating like James Brown on stage.

James Brown, bless his soul, would start sweating as soon as the music started playing. DIY! I can do enough to keep my hair looking neat for about three months and then it's time to go see somebody else.

That's for posting the info on the bodkin (yarn needle?). I think it's great that you are attempting DIY. I love the independence that natural hair can bring.

LOL@ James Brown

Lol,U can tell my age. Back in the day(growing up in Ghana) we used the phrase 'sweating like James Brown' to describe intense physical activity or being caught in a tight spot. He was very famous in Ghana.
