Click on pics to enlarge and view the full slide show with captions. These are pics of installation, my consultant and the 2nd day of being newly locked.
Well it's been a week since I had my new set of SL's installed and my has it been a week. My emotions have gone up and down about my new look. I think I'm over it now. It is what it is and it's really okay. I just read a comment from someone that really put it all into perspective so I decided to go ahead and post pics and move on. The installation was done over 2 days. 11 hours on day 1 and 9 hours on day 2. I have less locs now and I figure it is due to the take down and loss of hair, I also had it trimmed but I see now that it was actually cut. I feel like I should have waited to have them reinstalled to give my hair a chance to recover from all of the shock. In 1 week I had it taken down, colored, cut and then reinstalled. That's trauma.
I think I was truly wrapped up in the # of locs and the thickness of my hair and not having to go thru the scalpy stage. What is that all about? I was really tripping. I lamented to my close friends and even DH got nervous and thought I was going to take them out. NO WAY! I will never do that again. Natalie's work was impeccable and I know that I have true SL's now. I think I was just tripping that I had to go thru such an ordeal to get it. I was so ready back in Dec to start the new year with locked hair. My hair was in great condition and just the length I wanted it to be starting out. This was so drastic a change in every way that I just couldn't enjoy it.
I am ready now for the new phase. Thanx to all for all of the comments and support.
