ReTi after 15 weeks!

I left my new growth for 15 weeks. You can see what it was like in the 2nd pic. The hair style in the next pics is 2 knots tied on my head. I started reTi in that 1st pic. Tis is what my locs look like at the moment.

Soooo good to here from you! Have missed your presence!
How was the Reti experience after so long? I would have cried! Kinda reluctant lately when it comes to DIY, have had it done for me today and last time ... Too much to do and soo little time. Hope you are well Xx

Nai,Ive lurked a bit. All sorts happening. My daughter lost a very close friend tragically 2 weeks ago. Then 3 days ago her b'friends brother died in an accidental overdose(prescription given by dr) so it's been a little rough. i've been too busy to bother with reTis. A lot of my locs are combined so they can withstand long periods in-between. Good for my roots too...
Euphoria, I've only done a 1/4 lol! Just taking my sweet time.

Sorry to hear this Ofo, you are brave waiting this long but I am sure your locks wont come to any harm it might actually do them some good. They look really long x

Thx Kitty. Most of the locs have really benefited, but there's 1 or 2 that look shredded...

Wow Ofo, so you finally doubled some up? Because i was looking at the picture and am thinking...mmme looks thicker the lock that is. At the moment am trying to see how long i can go without retighting. I have made my locks larger...i have around 170 to date. So naturally and technically i can go for at least 2months or so without a reti. We'll see.xx

I've combined at least a 3rd if not more of my locs. I haven't counted, but I'd guess I've got between 260-300 locs. I'm a lot happier with the size, also I can go longer between reTis and it's shorter too.
