My 16 months and a week Microlocks Showcase
Rain and sleeping on my locks definitely loosens the hold of the Lock Styling Lotion. The daily spray also softens the styling. So I will be clip styling to keep some shape.
I also want to address that tightening locks can be done in a clockwise turning or a counterclockwise turning.
Sisterlocks patterns are mostly counterclockwise. I find when I am twisting, it depends on how I am holding my head and my arms placement. Some of my locks are twisted clockwise and some counter-clockwise. I think that by the third hour of finger twisting - I am losing concentration so I try to follow how each lock is naturally twisting.
Also, the last Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Gelly that I used would not absorb into my locks this last tightening session. I do not know if something in my shampoo was blocking it??? I skipped conditioning all together. So I had to go back to the Jamaican Lime and Mango Locking Gel. Then I ran out of that and had to finish my head with Nahbila's Peppermint Twisting Gel. The gels got the job done so I am grateful, and I love both products.
Okay, it may be New Years for the next check-in!
