Yesterday, I visited Locks4Life to have a few "corrections" made to my DIY retightening by Paulette who had taken the day off to celebrate Archie II's birthday-- her husband. So, Certified Sisterlocks Consultant Robin Simpson was holdin' down the fort. THANKS Robin!
She patiently fixed my messes, encouraged me to continue the process, reviewed my work and pointed out for me to be careful not to repeat the same rotation on the same lock resulting in very thin weakly retightened loc using some examples in my hair that I had done (YIKES!) She assured me that after correctly retightening this same lock NEXT time it should correct itself. (I sure hope so!) Robin, demonstrated how I might address my frustration with sectioning my hair off and away from the area I'm working in and even gave me a few stronger clamping hair clips. (What a huge help! Having the right tools is half the battle! Thanks AGAIN Robin-- you ROCK!)
Locks4Life Natural Salon has the most proficient Certified Sisterlocks Consultants in the Sisterlocks/Brotherlocks family! I love y'all!
Now, on to TODAY...DAY 4: I feel pretty confident today y'all...dare I say that I have now a RHYTHM even goin'! My goal is to be completely finished with my own SL retightening by Saturday, June 28 (my original retightening date at Locks4Life) My goal is to visit the salon and go, "TA DAH!!"
Oh, by the way... my right arm began aching on DAY 3 around midnight as I retightened my hair-- equal time, I guess! I am not in pain today however. So I may even skip my Motrin piece today. I'll just have my breakfast, supplements and get to retightening.
I am seeing the light at the end of the tunnel... I'm GETTING THERE... I'M GETTING IT DONE...I'M DOIN' IT AND KINDA FEELIN' MY OWN RHYTHM.
While I do have a sense of confidence & all that jazz... I STILL feel that when I go back to work in the fall that I'll probably be back to the salon for retightenings... but I'll see... I'm sure NO about wasting money. But then again, TIME IS MORE PRECIOUS THAN MONEY. We'll see...maybe it's still too early to tell...
Thanks again so very much Robin! Oh, and I forgot to mention online that your new Sisterlock'd bob haircut is sooooo flattering. I'll have to post a new pic of Robin with her new "do"... perhaps, I'll take the picture on Saturday when I visit the salon with my completed retightened Sisterlocks-- YEAH!! (Gotta keep my eyes on the prize... GOTTA GET OFF THIS COMPUTER TOO AND GET STARTED!!)
