Metamorphosis...


I'm changing! By looking at my blog, I am sure you can tell I am a fan of butterflies. I even have a tattoo of one on my back. My hair is changing. It is thickening up so much. It feels so funny, so different, and I am loving every minute of it. I can hardly freestyle it right now without trying to tame it. I usually roll my hair back for work and set it free whenever I can. I have been locked for almost 3 months, January 10, 2008 is my official 3 month mark. I washed my hair on Tuesday morning, it was out of control. I had to calm it down by wearing a head band for the rest of the day. The shorter locks at my hair line are growing. They are constantly in my eyes now, and they are still my favorite.
I can see the change in my hair and so can my consultant. I went in for my 2nd retightening, it took 3 hours (15 minutes less than the first retightening). I was told that I am settling nicely and the next time that I wash my hair I can wash without braiding and banding to see how my hair holds up. Also I am happy to report, very, very, minor slippage, like two or three locks. I am not styling my hair at this time. I see all the lovely ladies styling their hair with the soft spikes, caruso, and wrap a locks; I oh so long for the day that I can use them. For right now I am just patiently waiting for my hair to settle and lock. TIP: Little manipulation of the hair helps with the locking process.

Good! Hair still looks lovely. Now I'm not so guilty for NOT braiding and banding a couple of times. It's been almost 5 months, and btw, I did go back to b&b this last time. Keep up the good work!

I know I'm early but happy 3 months! Your Sisterlocks are progressing nicely. I think butterflies are beautiful too. I want a purple butterfly on the back of my calf, but for some reason I'm afraid to get it. I don't know why, because I already have two tattos. Anyhow have a good one.

I love the progress and that you check your messages and reply. So Lakia are you still using the Knotty Boy products? Any spray oil being used at this time?

You have fooled me! I have been to your blog several times and I never knew that you only had your locks for three months! I have always thought that they were matured. I just know that your will be more beautiful and thick at the one year mark! Lucky you ;)

Butterflies are beautiful, you're exactly on the money with that one. They are very graceful and they make me smile. I also want to say your locks are looking good. I'm so happy things are well with you and your 2nd retightening. Do you think you'd ever DIY?
