The story of the collapsing curls

The collapsed curls. The result of all my hard work the night before. I don't think my hair was wet enough. Perhaps it needs some mousse or setting lotion.

Looked nice when I first took out the soft spikes.

my locs rolled on soft spikes yesterday. It took over 1hr!!! How do others do it? I can't be spending so long rolling my hair, aint got the time.
The joy on my face when I finally finished. Little did I know the curls would collapse the very next day.

I have noticed since my hair has gotten longer just plain water does not hold my curls anymore, but I hate the feel of the setting lotion on my hair

Hi Ofo.

I love reading your blog and your recent holiday in Ghana reminds me of when I visited there with a friend some 20 years ago. I think I'm due for another visit!
Yes, the softspikes are hard work! I roll my locs with them but I also use lottabody setting lotion. I find lottabody great as it's not sticky and you can dilute the solution to your taste - it's also very economical on price.
Try it - I'm sure you'll find your set will then hold for at least a week.
Lyn.
PS: your hair is looking fabulous!!

Euphoria, that must be it! Longer hair just won't hold a curl unless it has some holding agent.
Thx Lyneedee. I'll get some lottabody. I can barely bear the thought of rolling my locs again for 1hr. Oh the price of beauty lol! Look-out for more Ghana pics. I still have more to upload.

hi Ofo,
Where would I find your loc girls? Are they in Sakaman? Do they have their own tools? I brought my latch hook with me, but it's too hot to reti myself.
Look forward to hearing from you.

I like the collapsing curls. I was wondering how to achieve that look but I see that I have to wait until my sisterlocks gain some more length.

Seiwa, they're in Sakaman. Call Ankpa and ask her. The lady's name is Manti and she's 2 min from our house.I have her phone number so I'll send to your email. We paid them 12GHcedis, or (120,000 old cedis) They have a yarn needle I left them. Pls leave them your latch-hook as I forgot to give them mine.
Kreyola, thx. It actually looks better than the pics today.
