Curlin' the locs, Part II

Soooo I got curl happy again.

First of all, I will say that retwisting AND curling the locs takes a LONG time. A loooong time. A good 3 hours to be exact. And that does not include sitting under the dryer. This is one long behind process that I can not see myself doing too often. I'd much rather pay someone to do it.

And that says a lot since I am cheap and always trying to stretch a dollar. HA!

This time around I used perm rods rollers. I SO much prefer these over the ones I used before. I got a much tighter curl...and the curl holds up! Three days later and I still have nice curls.

See!






Okay, the more I look at these photos the more I'm like, "Wait....where the curls at?" They are there! I promise. For some reason my camera didn't capture them as well as I thought they would have.

That's some buffoonery.

But trust me when I say there really are curls there. I have to tweak the process a little bit more. It's not easy.

And another thing....guess who will be doing a definite re-dye? The color is not popping the way I want it to. I'm wait a good month or so but I will definitely be re-dying the locs again. I can't help it.

I'm a rockstar with locs!!!!!

Lovely. Pipe cleaners (the kids craft kind) make really pretty spiral curls and they're cheap!
