I have two more weeks before my next appt. yet, I have about 4 or 5 locs that have slipped. My 1st two months, I barely had any slippage but I am noticing more after my last retightening. I have done more braid out styles opposed to just free-stylin and I sometimes use a mist of distilled water and Jojoba oil in rotation with my Rosewater. I wonder if the braidout or the Jojoba oil is causing the slippage. I only put a few drops of it in the water. I'll be so happy after November because I would have taken the consultant class by then and will be able to maintain my own locs. Oh well...until next time.
