Man down!!!! Don't pop hair while retigthening..
Man down!!!! I've actually lost one of my locks. In actuality I cut it out because it was literally hanging on by 4 strands of hair, which you can see at the beginning of the lock. So how did it happen you ask....well I explained that on my first retightening I did for myself with the NL tool I kept pulling neighboring locks in the new growth. When I did do that and I was unable to pull it out I would pop the hair (yeah bad idea) because in this case it only left a few strands of for the lock to hold on to. I didn't notice this until I retightened the 2nd time and I just left it hoping that enough hair would grow and I can retighten. That was wishful thinking because even though I have new growth I didn't know how tighten it with just a few strands and then new growth. Although its been holding on for close to two months I didn't want it to one day drop out as I was walking so I cut it and started a new lock with the new growth. With a "man down" I was able to inspect the lock much closer which started intertwining so I'm so happy that my hair is well on its way to locking!!
Lesson learned don't pop my hair when retightening!! And since noticing this I'm even more cautious when separating.
