Its Been 6mths!!!

It really doesn't feel like it's been six months. I guess when you're busy all the time you really don't notice the days flying by. I took this opportunity to visit a consultant to get a "check up" of how my hair was doing. I had a great time. I didn't have to listen to and worry about the comfort of my family while I was trying to relax and enjoy my me time. It was great!!

I also had a chance to learn and confirm a few things. She helped ease my mind as far as how well I was doing with my self retightenings. I am doing a great job just take my rotations in the opposite direction. She also confirmed the concerns about having my hair retightend with too much tension a few months ago. The problem was worse than I thought, the hair is broken of soo abd that she thought there were locks missing. Other locks were thick at the base where they had grown out and thin on the ends because the hair had snapped and those that hadn't snapped were hanging on. I was happy I wasn't crazy but in the same turn pissed because of all the breakage and time it will take to repir the damage. There was no way I would have been able to catch the hair that had snapped up into the lock until it had grown out more. Thankfully she was able to catch some that had grwon in. Once again, live and learn.

congrats on making the 6 month mark and it looks very silky and I love the little curly Qs on the ends some days I miss those

I found out I have that bunching prone hair. So I know this is going to be a long ride. I'm learning to stop freaking out. about every little thing. And more that happy to hear I need to wash my hair every week!!!! Thank you so much.

Wow! I know just how you feel re: having locks that were retightened too tight leading to breakage and other issues... I have about 23 which have weakened bases and 2 which will probably pop off as they hanging by a few strands each!
I'm glad you mentioned that they could be mended when the new hair grows out - do let me know how this goes.
