So it has been a little  over a month since my daughter had her braidlocs installed and almost 4 since I had my sister locks installed. She had her first re-ti yesterday and I had my 3rd or 4th.  Her hair is doing great.  Although not much seems to be happening with my hair, it is getting a bit bulkier, although not much longer!  I have also been fighting with 2, 3, and 4 headed dragons in the front half.  Lots of snipping at my re-ti’s!ImageImage

Still regularly curling my hair with softlocs; gives a nice curl until the next wash.  little tray curlies along my hairline don’t make me so happy!

9 and 1/2 hours later, my daughter’s hair is finally done. Our consultant estimated for 6 hours, so it was a long haul for me, although my daughter weathered it extremely well, happily watching movies and with nary a complaint. To speed things along, I did quite a bit of the braiding, about a quarter of her head, so I was pretty tired by the end of it!  Her babies are micro, smaller than mine, although I had requested the same size. I think that this is because her hair is thinner than mine. In any case she is quite happy. I am a little bit worries about maintenance, as after a night with rollers in I had to carefully separate the ends because they were already matting together!  I am sure that she will have mature Locs long before IImageImageImage
