After only 1 month I was already getting compliments on my hair. My Daughter said "yer you look bait Mum" translated this means that I look great. My partner loved it too although he could not understand the parting system until I showed him some blogs. My wider family either did not notice or were being polite and did not say anything. I was trying out new things with my hair. Spritzing it at night when braiding it in singles then spritzing it again in the morning after undoing them. I usually wore my hair down to work.
I stopped using the spritz in the mornings as I did not like the look. It was too spongy and I wanted more defined curls and kinks.
I loved the freedom that locks gave me.
