I Have Curls!
I am going to a party tonight. While I had a list of beauty tasks to conquer I decided to get my hair done. I went to the nearest salon. Everyone had relaxers and their hair looked good and healthy enough for me to stay. When I had relaxers, I went every week to keep my hair from breaking off. It never stayed put unless I had Shirley Temple curls or a style plastered down with gel. The lady thought I had kinky twists and that I wanted to get services for another person. I told her I do hair too and we would get through it. She didn't mind using the Sisterlock Starter shampoo. There was no braiding and banding and she scrubbed my hair like it was laundry. It felt incredible, but I still pondered how much slippage they would suffer.
She used a setting lotion and yellow rollers. She didn't use perm rods because we didn't know how long it would take. Instead she use the open rollers that have the matching open clasps.
The dryer was from the devil's beauty shop. I even tweeted about it being so damn hot. I lifted that joker up and she turned it down.
It was well worth it. I love the curls! I do have some splippage but it's in random areas throughout. The most is about an inch and no locks slipped completely out.
