another reTI, I'm becoming a veteran.

My hair is coming along nicely. I've finished retightening. It took 4 days. (About 8 hrs). I guess I'm getting a little faster. I must say this time it was relatively pain-free. I've combined around 11 locs. I prefer a decent root bed, than locs hanging by a few strands. So now I think I have 370 locs, but I don't know. I've given up counting bc it no longer matters. Strange how we change huh? I'll wait a week or 2 so then give this henna a go. (I may have to be ready to do another reTi if slippage occurs).Hubby and I might be going to Switzerland next week. I still dont have a camera, but I will post pics when I get it asap. I 'm getting more creative with some simple styles like half- updos etc. I have quite a few accesories to help e.g tomokas twists, homemade hair ties, victoria's handmade, various head bands, some with cowrie shells. The longer my locs get the easier to style. Till next time.....

Definitely want to hear about the henna experience when you do it. I've been going back and forth as to whether I want to try it or not.

I think I had a little over 400 locs after my install.. Since then some have been combined and it's all good.

It all becomes clearer when you take on the task of DIY. At times I think about combining all my locs, then I take a step back, call my consultant for a retight, and sigh in relief, until my next retight is due.....hehe!

Glad to read there is less pain involved in the retights now.
I dreamt about you last night, along with two other friends...strange.

Hey Nubian1 LOL what was I doing starring in your dream. Something good I hope..or was it just retightening locs?
Msfullroller, I'll definitely record my findings after I henna.
