Back to My Roots...the Retightening Update

As I shared in my last post, I really haven't had my hair professionally retightened in almost 6 months. Honestly, I had so many things going on I just didn't feel like dealing with the hair. Well, I finally got my head done and surprisingly I still have hair left! It only took about 6 hours which is just an hour longer than normal (I have mostly small/medium sisterlocks, about 550 or so). I'll let you in on a little secret though...I think I prefer my hair with the new growth unlocked. I tried curling it a little bit for something different. Hopefully the curls will fall some real soon (I am a die-hard freestyler!). But, I thought I'd share my updated photos with you all anyway. Later,

Before Retightening: (can you find my scalp in all this hair?)

















After Retightening: (the parts are back!!!)

aww you curls are really cute! Don't worry they will definitely fall. Did you use soft spikes? I will be glad to get the length you are now so that when I wear curls they will hang (-:

honey, you are not the only one who prefers the fullness of unlocked roots. I do too and always have. The way I see it, retights are a necessary protocol, but I'll take the extra fullness any day of the week. You're still as cute a button.

Hey Tra,
Yes I used soft spikes. I'm not quite sure if I like them with my length. It's just not as cute as yours :-)

Tanya,
Thanks for saying that, I thought I was the only one. Now granted I do tend to take the non-retightenings to the extreme (6 months), but I do love the fullness. Especially with my thick thin hair.

You're pretty cute too!

Six Months! wow. And to think I was griping over 8 weeks. Your hair held up very well.

Wow! I just love your curls! It must have been fun seeing the big difference with a fresh retightening and all! Thanks for sharing.

Hello I jot sisterlocks four months ago. In March I am going to take a retightening class. Is is difficult to retighten. I am expecting my first child in June and I want to make sure I know how to keep up my hair before I get to busy. Please offer any advice you have on retighten.
