Here, the local hairdressers are tightening my locs with a nappylocs tool and yarn needle. It took them a couple of hours and they charged me the equivalent of $9.00 or £6.00. These are the same ladies who I taught how-to to install and maintain my daughter's locs 4 years ago. They did her locs for free back then cos she was a student. She just dashed them something. Dash means a gift. My plan had been to get Ama to do my hair. But it was not to be due to circumstances beyond my control. One day Ara went off to get her locs retightened by her old friends. It was looking so sharp I decided to use them too as they're like 2 min from where we lived.
And the finished look. My sisterlocks above, Arashia's TLs below. Her locs had an incredible amount of repair work and growth as long as your arm! Ok I'm exaggerating, but the growth was mad. she hadn't tightened properly for 6 mths.
