2nd Retightening at Strandz


As you know I have been extra lazy on wanting to do my own retightening so I went back to Strandz over the weekend for my retightenting. There was some confusion as to the time of my appointment, but it got straightened out and a different person did my retightening for me (the issue with going to salons, when you DIY no time confusion). Anyway, although I ended up with a different girl doing it who talked (and stopped as she was talking), she also had to stop to style someones' hair (which came out like FIAH), and talked some more it took her 3 hours. Just imagine if she didn't chat so much. In any event, this time around I got a style and it's nothing fancy but it's a change. I put some perm rods in for the curl in the back, I'm not overly thrilled with it but hey it will probably only last a few days because my head is feeling a bit tight. The one thing I did take out were the two twists on the side, I looked like I was 15! Now I look 17!

Additionally, I do wanna state is that Strandz can really do some natural hair. The styles that ladies are walking out with are FIAH, and they know how to care for natural hair as well. The shampoo they used and I don't know what it was had my scalp tingling nicely and then in the end my locks are so nice and soft. I loved it!

With all that, I made my next appointment for four weeks out :-). Summertime just doesn't feel right with me sitting in the house in the evening tightening my hair, I'm just going to have someone do it for me for at least July and August..unless they get on my bad side :-)

sooooooooooooo unfair *pout* The first time I tried to comment on this (via google reader) it said 'post not found'... now I'm back and everybody's in here! (lol)

Ok, all silliness aside: I wanted to say I loooooooooooooooooooooved this style on you... I love the skewed flat twists (and the colour)... I wonder if I can copy this? Maybe it only looks good on YOU! I don't know how it looked with all the twists in but I like the free hair at the sides - makes you look like you're wearing a cute bob!

Also - ROFL re: 'just imagine if she didn't chat so much' hahahhahahahahah

Nothing like getting your hair did by someone else. Unfortunately my consultant had to stop doing hair seems like me taking the class was right on time, however now I'm ready to get pampered again, lol.

BTW that style looks great!

your hair looks really nice and it must be nice to have the option of capable people doing your retis. I have tried twice with two different consultants where I am and still no luck the first person I went to my hair looked as if nothing was done when I left. The second person ( although she did warn me) took forever literally, did the wrong pattern in multiple places in my hair which left me with weak roots and left patches of locks untightened. athe sad part is they were both really nice ladies, women who I would have loved to continue going to had they done a better job. I just can't seem to win down here.Its soooo getting on my nerves. I'm tempted to buy a ticket to fly back to Maryland to have Claire do and fix any damages that I now I know have, but for all that I'll just keep retightening my hair myself, something thats also getting on my nerves because of all the other work I have to do. sigh Enough ranting...

I do like your hairstyle, its a refreshing look on you.
