I have been maintaining my own locks for the past 8 months by myself and doing a fine job if I say so myself. However, I hate doing the front! I hate it with a mad passion! Look at the top front, see all of the new growth? I finished all of the back and sides but I leave the bang area and half the crown for a while as I complain and moan about needing to finish it. My locks are soooo small in this area though. Not soo small thay they are weak, but the parts are soo small. It seems like it takes forever to finish tightening them all. I feel like for every 10 locks I tighten in this small area, I grow another 20 locks! Me doing it myself is alot better (as in economical) than paying Martine in this market. Besides I do get the bragging rights associated with maintaining my own do. But these teensy eensy locks on top gotta go. I really don't want to combine them at this point because I might regret it later. But I think they look fab even unstyled I just bobby pin it up and keep it moving. I do want to use my lock loops but i refuse until I finish tightening it all. I am not really complaining though, just lazy,really. I love my hair more than ever though. My kids keep telling me to tighten up my dye job too but then my eyebrows seem too dark and I can't be bothered trying to keep them colored to match the locks so I only dyed it that one time back in January. Maybe when the weather is cold and I am bored and have cabin fever i will hide my roots...but then again, maybe I won't. What do you think?
