My One year and Seven months Lock-versary!
Today is another Lock anniversary. It is one year and seven months so I added a red brown rinse and performed a perm rod set. My locks that still have relaxer processing in it seemed to have lightened up from the sunlight or because I condition a lot less so I wanted to take advantage of this color change by depositing more color. I used a Nairobi Mahogney Semi-permanent TruColor. I may use a colored shampoo to maintain the color change. I will also need to make sure that I do not have lint or product starting to cling. So I will have to keep everyone posted on this color rinse change.
I did not use any clippies for my styling. I did use a LOT of Lottabody setting lotion and a little hairspray.
Drying time was still at least two hours because I did not retighten the roots. Surprisingly, the 3.5 hours that it takes to re-tighten my roots allows the locks to dry. So by skipping the re-tightening did not save me any significant service time.
I was feeling a little "abstract" here. I twisted one side up and left one side down. This picture was the week before this most recent lock-versary.
