December: Post-Shampoo shots

18.12.2007: First time using Neutrogena T-Gel Anti-Dandruff Shampoo
Even though the one I am using is for greasy hair (silly Boots sent me the wrong one twice albeit all refunded) it doesn't strip the hair and smells a bit like lemon grass. It's no match for my Aveda Sap Moss 1 litre though but one day soon I will pick up that bottle in 2008 and smell the usual woody accented smell I am use to Lol.

20.12.2007: Retightening results - My hair has settled
The slippage issue:
A few of the slipped ones had to be redone as new locs but my consultant said that they weren't too bad and there are some that have unravelled slightly but are holding up.

My hair has a little bit of lint at the back but it's not too major for me to panic yet.

Although it's a pain to have a few newbies again, I am really happy as my consultant said my hair has "settled" and is "locking away nicely".

December Pre-Shampoo shots

04/12/2007: Some of the ends of my hair loosened so I have plaited them for now following the advice from my consultant. This was due to me washing with Aveda Sap Moss Shampoo which I've used before but it really doesn't agree with my sisterlocks at this stage (too moisturising). I am instead going to use Neutrogena T-Gel to combat the dry scalp.

09/12/2007: Pics taken after my silk scarf fell off my head. I decided to take pictures as my hair looked fuller on this day. Even though my Aveda shampoo made some of my ends loose - my roots seem to love it in terms of growth. Oh well maybe I'll use my 1 litre bottle in a year or sooner from now :)
