My most favorite time to retighten my Sisterlocks is when I’m traveling. Whether I’m traveling abroad or in the good old USA I make sure to retighten my Sisterlocks. My most memorable times have been while traveling in Zimbabwe, during all three of my visits there I’ve made sure I retightened my locks. The beautiful landscape helped the time to go by faster. It takes approximately six to seven hours to complete my entire head so I pace myself, I normally work at two hour intervals or until my arms get tired. I start in the back, the locks in the back are larger than the front so I can knock those out quicker. Finishing in a day is a feat that I seldom undertake.The longer I wait the longer it takes to get the job done. Sounds familiar…Right??? I use my pointer finger to gauge when its time to retighten my locks, for some this might be too much new growth. Some may be wondering how I retighten my locks without a mirror, at first it was really awkward but practice overtime increased my comfort level and speed. I’ll never forget the time I joined two locks together while traveling home from Arizona. I was new to this whole business of retightening my locks so I freaked out a bit, fortunately I was able to untangle them once I got home to my mirror. If you ever accidentally combine your locks don’t panic, they can usually be untangled with a little work. I just arrived home from a road trip, my goal is to finish my entire head before 2016, I’m halfway there, wish me well! Till next time be blessed.
