Gaps/Holes in Locks

Hi Everyone

OK, I'm stressed...remember the growth I complained about? Retightening it has brought me headaches.

I had to do 4 to 5 full rotations per lock to fully tighten each lock, and given that I have about 300 locks, this took longer than expected to do my hair. In frustration I taught a friend and asked her to do the back section. She seemed to doing it faster than I was doing it, so it was yay-ness for a while (until I discovered the holes in most of the locks at the back).

Basically, my hair is locked very tight to the scalp, for about 1/4 inch, then the rest of my previous growth is soft gaps/holes. I'm worried about the uniformity of my locks after this. I'm also worried that these unlocked bits will cause bulging problems and/or I will find myself with fragile & breaking locks in the parts that are soft and not locked.

I have been trying to fix the holes by passing the locks through the holes, but for my smaller locks, the extension part is straining my hair as the locks get stuck as I attempt to pull them through the gaps.

If you have any advice, or can direct me to anyone who has blogged about this, I will appreciate it. I'm kind of stressing and can't stop touching the holes in thorough frustration...

Help please! Anyone????!!!

Uganda Trip

I just came back from a 2 week visit in Uganda (Kampala), very hot, great organic food, hair GREW from all that sweating, no Internet, riots, interesting culture, bad bad roads, beautiful scenery (especially at the source of the majestic Nile River in Jinja just outside of Kampala), million types of bananas, friendly people, sad reminders of the war, hectic education system, highest life expectancy I've seen in Africa so far....

In all, I had a memorable time, special thanks to Doreen, my friend, for inviting me to her native land.

that's my excuse for MIA for so long...

I have soooo much growth its not funny at all. its like my hair has not been retouched in 3 months...all from just 2 weeks of equatorial weather???  Maybe I should relocate :-)

I mean to say, I'm back to the blog land...
