December 31st, Maryee fashioned a number of bantu knots in my head. She just twisted three locs together at a time and then bantu'd them. I kept them in about ten hours. They hurt my head too much to leave in any longer. She really did a monster grip job of placing them firmly into position.
By the way, she used a mixture of Jamaican Mango & Lime (Lock & Set Styling Lotion) and Lotta Body after I initially wet my hair. She could have used more, but she had somewhere to go; hence, she hurried to get through.
I sat under the dryer for about 30 minutes, but my hair was not dry. I just kept them in as long as I could stand it. As a result I have had waves for almost four days and counting. It is nice to have this big head full of waves to start off the new year. It seems the waves are not going to fall unless I wet them down. Pretty good staying time, I think.
Maryee also just purchased Soft Spikes, so this should prove to be a year full of exciting big hair, locs, curls, and waves... I am very excited about the soft spikes.
I am so tender-headed it is not even funny. That is one of the main reasons I avoid styling my locs... the pain... the pain... Another reason... this town doesn't motivate me to reach that high and my ever popular reason... "just choosing not to."
The last pics are from last night. The waves are still going strong.
Blessings and have a wonder-filled, peace-filled, and awesome new year~
