Month 33

I've been spending the weekend retightening my hair. I'm realizing at about 5 weeks, I have to get hook and clip tool in gear to retighten. When I'm finished I hope to do a nice roller set. I'm really curious to see what it will look like. Puffy sides always reveal it's time for a retightening. Also, no parts in my scalp (except on top) is another major indicator. I always start off good on the right side and then get lazy heading around the back to the left side. Hopefully I won't drag my feet. I don't know how I overlooked this feature with picture pile, but in Picasa, if you choose picture pile collage, you can click on the pictures and they move around. You can also add a picture (random) from the collage as the background. Cool!!

Here's more pictures. Just click on the thumbnail and it will enlarge.
I rolled my hair this morning on perm rollers and will see what the results of that look like with 33 month old locks. I'm pretty excited about my growth and progress. This has been fun!

I'm right behind you approaching 32months next month. I wasn't able to click on the picture to move them around. However your freestyle looks good. Can't wait to see the roller set.

Thanks Ree-C,

When you go into Picasa to create your own picture pile and choose the pics you want and they show up in the collage, that's when you have the option to click on each picture and they rotate around. After the collage is made you don't have that option, like in the photo I posted. I hope this makes sense.

I'm about half way through with my retightening. If I stay diligent, I could be finished by tomorrow. I seem to get easily distracted when I have to retighten my hair. Ha!

Maryee, your growth is awesome. And I so admire you for retightening your own hair. I'm going to try it again this month, with more patience and see how I do. But don't hold your breath for such great results as yours!

Well, I must admit, I'd love to have my hair retightened, but until I can afford it, I will stay on the job myself. It's therapeutic. I read online blogging or watch a movie or talk to Jen while I retighten. After a while, it becomes pretty natural. I wish you well in your next try!!
