I am glad to say that I was able to do my assign section w/o marrying any locks and did a good job if I do say so. However, when you start retightening your own hair you start seeing things you never notice before. Right now I have some locks that are entirely too small and they are in the area of my hair where I had bad damage from wearing kinky twists. The locks are thick then they are real, real skinny. It is only about 3 of them and they are all in my damage area. I will have my consultant combine them to at least strengthen them. I was retightening one w/the clip tool and um, that part just fell off. No I didn't get upset, because I know what I am dealing with in that area. My hair was really damaged there by the pulling done by the braiders.

I have come to realize and with those who responded to my last post, that time and patience is key. I washed my hair on Wednesday and planned to watch the Olympics and Law & Order and do my assigned area. After 4 hours, my area was done as well as all the locks around my hair line front and back (except for those locks I had already married. LOL!). I will attempt this week to finish all the hair on the front right side. Seriously, I was so proud of myself Thursday, because my head was sore and my locks had lengthened. Go me! I took pictures of the area I did to show you guys. I'll try to get it posted this week.

So alls well in my land...Thanks for all the support!

DIY is not for the fate at heart. Sometimes when I'm doing mine I get the same feeling - what did I get myself into. I take a deep breath and think just do one at a time. It doesn't have to be done in one day. I combined a few at my nape out of frustration - they keep coming out.

So you're not alone in how you feel. At first it's overwhelming, but when you've got it done it's very rewarding.

Carmen, that is the truth it is not for the faint of heart. Let's just say on September 11th the assigned section has already grown out and the rest of my head looks a fool and my consultant is gonna be mad! I have been just too tired and sick lately to care. So I do a few at a time and when I marry them, I stop.

Meimeika - thanks. Encouraging words are needed and as I pop the hair in the back of my head that is over 2 inches of new growth in length because it ain't gonna be pretty on Sept 11th when I go in for retightening.

Brown Buttahfly - perserverance is the key. Too bad I am lazy right now or I really should say too busy to deal with it.

N'Drea - I don't know if it is a bold step, but one I knew I was going to do. I'll probably will not be on my own for a while, my hair needs to mature some more.

Thanks for all the encouragement.
