....to get consistent curls (like I see on your blogs). It took me 2 hrs to curl these and I had to re-wet my locs 2x. I used a combination of perm rods and soft spikes. I kept them in for 2 days. I had to go to church(- ok - prayer meeting at the church) with this humongous hat with all those rods underneath. My friend just about split her sides laughing at the sight of me. I endured all the hell you go through trying to sleep on hard rocks& lumps, even a shopping trip that had folks staring at my huge head. I banished every thought of 'why me?' 'this is too much' and fixated on the prize of wonderful curls to come..and I still haven't cracked it. Some locs curled,some simply fell and some- well- just laughed at me. Still, I thought I'd show my meagre offering. So here you are. Brought to you with love.
