A fabulous shampoo and condition, and back in the seat. After moisutizing my scalp with the salon's brand of oil, April trimmed a bit more, twisted, and sat me under the dryer. The drying time was shorter, my head felt lighter... what a difference! After I was dry, she sat me in her seat one last time. Some ends were trimmed, but April left some of the somewhat loose ends, saying soemtimes they lock into the loc. That's fine with me. I don't want to look too manicured anyway. Before taking her "after" shot, she fluffed and patted, and tried to get some locs to do what she wanted. But, as all teenage locs do, they rebelled and did what they wanted. :) I'm lovin it. I'm excited to see what it will look like in a couple of days and weeks. I always do like my hair a few days after the visit, when the locs settle and loosen up a bit. We'll see how long I can keep the crazy frizziness in check. I don't know that that will work for me with this length.
So, as of now, I am very pleased. Happy that I didn't let my husband talk me out of it. I like seeing my face, and I like the fun, carefree look this do gives me. I'm excited to get to know my hair as it grows and matures.
