6th ReTi

I had my ReTi yesterday 9th dec 2008. I pinched the term ReTi from QueenLi ( I believe she coined the word and hope she doesn't mind me using it.) I am no longer braiding and banding. I told my consultant I was planning to take over ReTi and come to her every so often. She was very encouraging. She said my hair had settled in and thickened up nicely. She's aware I maintain my daughter's locs by interlocking - that I get the occasional loc client who wants ReTi via a tool. She's a generous lady and doesn't act like she's the only one with the secret. She's going to be way for a while so she said why don't I DIY the next one and she can check it over when she's back as I already know my rotations and how-to. Alternatively she suggested getting it done whilst in Ghana. What a breath of fresh air, after all the alarming consultant stories I heard where you daren't ask about DIY except to take the class and if you do.. DIY without the class....you've left the fold. When I asked her about no longer having sls if I used a nappylocs tool or something else, she said you have the partings, the pattern, your hair won't grow into something else. Well it's nice to know she has confidence in me to do it right. Yep. I'm planning another trip to Ghana to see the fam - end of Jan/feb. I booked this with my heavenly father months ago and asked him to throw in some spending money and pressies for everyone. He is so good to me so I know everything will be there just at the right time when I need it. Thank you Lord.

Ooh, enjoy the vac. Wil it just be you or will the family also be going along?I was asking my friend in Tanzania if they have batural products over there and she said no, that she gets shea butter from her Ghanaian sister in law who lives in the Uk!Talk about coincidence!After your kindness, you definately deserve the trip :)

Thanks Thandi, I'm really looking forward to my trip. Shea butter via Uk - hehehe. My bro is bringing me some from the US. His daughter took so much from Ghana, she can't use it all, so they're bestowing it on me. Isn't God good?

Oops, forgot to add - I'll be going on my own due to the sheer volume of ££££ needed if everyone's coming. Taking the whole family is another faith project that I hope will come to pass soon.

Congrats!! on no more braid and band, even though she said I can condition I will do so in moderation, I wish had the time and patience to DIY, and my prayers go out to you for a safe trip and safe return

Kittylocs I haven't reti my hair yet. All I did b4 was repairs here and there. My loctitian has done my whole head to date. However,she's away so I'll have to do the next ReTi. I have the Nappylocs tool and some yarn needles.I'm seriously considering buying the microsize lock-key, but we'll see.
