One of the great things about rounding out the first year is the growth you experience in Year Two of Sisterlocks. My hair has grown tremendously over the past six months, and as I reach my second year anniversary in July, I’m looking forward to how much my hair will evolve over the next five months.
I had my last retightening, the first one of 2018, on January 6, 2018. Below are pictures of my retightening and the six-week return of my grid. Excuse my lack of make-up; a little bit of sunscreen is about all I can muster on retightening mornings.
I’m starting to get a little “hang-time” now. When I compare this picture from July 1, 2017:
to this one from February 10, 2018, the growth is evident.
My second retightening for 2018 was today, Sunday, February 18th. Here are a few “before” pictures as I stood in the elevator on my way to the salon:
Clearly, my grid is hidden with six weeks of new growth.
During my retightening, here is a shot of the back of my head as April is working her magic:
A few more shots of the retightening’s completion:
April has strategically placed my locs above so that you can see the edges and the precision of her work. Each time I visit her salon, I’m more pleased with the end result.
My next retightening is scheduled for Good Friday. Have a great Spring Break!
