Hooray For Braidlocks

O.K., I did it. It took 13.5 hours over a course of a week, but they are finally in. I am proud to say my "Minnie Me" has officially been locked. Her locversary is May 04, 2008. She is loving her locks. I even soft spiked them after I washed them. Now she is able to wear her hair out, and it can be flowing and free. I guess that is why I never put my locks in a ponytail. It feels so good to wear you hair out without worrying if the humidity will give you a Shaka Khan or Diana Ross effect. Daddy and I came with an agreement too, we told her that she can wear her hair this way as long as she likes. Since they are braids it will be easier to take down. Oh did I mention they are micro. So she is loving her micro-braidlocks. The only thing I have to worry about is retightening, I have no clue how to do it. There is a sisterlocks retightening class in June and I think I need to jump on it. I don't plan on doing my own hair until after December so I will continue to see my consultant. So I just have to worry about hers. I think I am going to put her on the same retightening schedule that I am on which is every 6 weeks.
More pics to follow.

I was just reading your reply on lockitup about number of locs and thought wait a minute. When did Lakia's daughter get braid locks?? So your DH gave in huh? She has quite the head of hair. Can't wait to see how they progress.

She's so lucky! I love her hair.

I purchased the Nappylocs Business in a box and from what I hear, Nappylocs is the same as Sisterlocs with the only difference being the name and the tool but the patterns are the same. It seems pretty easy and the Nappylocs tool would probably be easier than the hook.

I only purchased the Nappylocs business because it was cheaper than scheduling a consultation with a Sisterlock consultant, buying a tank of gas, and then driving down to LA. I'm not ready for Sisterlocks or locks of any kind.

13.5 hours wow patience of a mother! The end result is beautiful time well spent, can't wait to see how they progress and how you do with the retightening.

She is loving every minute of them too, so many women have been complimeting her on her hair. She has so much shrinkage and a lot of curly q's, I got to take another pi of her.

U did a wonderful job with her locs. By the time that she is a teen she will still love the freedom she will have to focus on other things besides her hair. Which will be beautiful by the way.

You did a good job. A lovely job. What a great mother/daughter bonding experience too. When folks ask her who did she can proudly say, "My mama." LOL. Post more pictures too.
