well its been 2 months since i put the braid in and im LOVING it. i didnt do anything to the middle of my hair until now becasue i wasnted to make sure i could handle the growth w/o over doing it(i have a thing for neatness) but its all good! i tightened my whole head over the weekend while watching movies. as time goes on i know it wont take as long but for my first time i dont think i did that bad :). Heres to the next 2 months
2.27 = 4 wks
@ this point i had to completely re-do my edges(front & back) the hair just was not holding in braids. i decided to latch them(2st wouldnt have been any betterthen the braids) and will have to monitor them closely. until they become strong i may have to mess w/ the, 2-3 wks which i really dont want to do but we'll just have to wait and see. momentarily i thought to redo my whole head and latch it but i dont dont want to part with the fuzz i already have...ive come to love the fuzziness on the rest of my hair :) i didnt retighten my hair because honestly i was too lazy. ill probably start over the weekend and work on it during the week.
