Retightening Day

Throughout today since I did not have to substitute teach, I blogged, caught up on emails, read, situated bills, and retightened my hair.

I have about 1/3rd a ways to go which is the front left side. I always start on the right and work my way around my head. I always seem to lose steam midway through. Being lazy about retightening your hair does not pay. I have some really thin locks (at the root) and have had to combine em' to save em. When the funds get right, I will have to make a trip to Gigi's so she can hook me up!! I don't have the energy to go on for tonight, so I'll have to work the rest out between tomorrow and Thursday. I wonder if I will have wavy locks in the back where I braided em' down. We'll see in the morning. It is always a good feeling when you are freshly retightened. As usual, I can't wait for the entire head to be done. Practice does make perfect. Nite! Posted by Picasa

Will I ever be able to do this?? I doubt it, but I will probably take the Oakland class next year.

FYI, I found the best price on Caruso rollers on amazon.com -- no tax & free supersaver shipping too.

Now I have one set that is ionic and one that is regular. (I needed to sets to have enough rollers.) I will be sure to post if I ever notice a difference between them. So far, the only difference I've noticed is that the ionic steamer makes click-click-click noises when it's in ion mode. I'm a chemist, and I have no idea what that means!!

Great pics, Mary and your hair is really long! I need some advice on freestylin'. I'm think I'm finally gonna give it a try. I'll email you and ask some questions.

Hey ladies,

Thanks for commenting on my retightening progress. Like doing chores, I'm always a bit slow out the block, but then I get going so I can get it done with. The length makes it easier to band and get extra hair out of the way.

LaChanda, your hair looks beautiful straight parts or not, but I know you'll be happier after your repair session.

Brunsli, I am sure you'll have a good time retightening your hair when you take the class next year. I'm gonna have to fundraise to get the Caruso Rollers in 06'. Can't wait!

Blaqkofi, Girl...I'm trippin' off my length, too. Freestyling is truly the lazywoman's look. :-) I felt weird at first, not braid, and banding and all, but after a while it just becomes standard. You'll see plenty of pictures soon of the "freestyle" transition for me.

Take care ladies!!!!
