Sisterlock Adoration: Finding True Hair Freedom

This blog mostly follows my hair transition to Sisterlocks(TM), but it also gives me an outlet for my occasional social commentary. I always look forward to hearing from you about my hair or my diatribes. Thanks for visiting! ***BTW- Please do not copy my pictures without permission.***

Retightening Class

On last Saturday, Dec. 1, I took my Sisterlock tightening class after being locked for 15 months. I have to admit, I can't imagine getting to the point where I can actually retighten my whole head. I think it took 15-20min for me to tighten my first lock. YIKES! I'd like to hear from you all about your own retightening courses and how long it took before you felt comfortable retightening. Although the latch on or clip on tool is pretty easy to use, the thought of reclipping for each of my 400 locks is laughable. After reading everyone's opinion about the nappy lock tool, I'm considering ordering it. Let me know your thoughts, please! The photo above is picture from my cell phone of the lock I retightened. Sorry, it's bad, but my camera batteries are dead, so it's the best I can do.
