Groom Me

I went to see Shannon a few days ago for a retightening session. As soon as I sat down, I began telling her about my dissatisfaction with the current state of my locks. My freestyle, the style I wear the most, was looking a bit too free. They didn’t hang as before. There were more than a few locks that looked rather scraggly. Also a good number of locks had balls (big and small) on the ends that looked rather distasteful.
As I spoke, Shannon looked through my locks and suggested a grooming. A grooming? Yeah, its time for a grooming. After explaining what a grooming was, and showing me before and after pictures of past groomings she had done, I quickly agreed.
I was very pleased with the results. The overall look of my locks were so much better. We took some before and after pictures but the before pictures didn’t turn out so well. No, I haven’t purchased a new camera. The one I used was a Kodak disposable one. Hope you’re able to get somewhat of an idea of the grooming looks. I don’t think the quality of the pictures are all that great.

    I've read on other blogs what groomings consist of and was wondering how long it took? Your locks do look really good!

    Meikmeika: The grooming process took about an hour. Every lock is visualized and care given if needed. I'm going to post about this and explain a little more in detail.

    Thanks for posting this Aya, it definitely shows that grooming makes a big difference. I have been trying to schedule a grooming session with my loctician because believe it or not I have never had one, but I really want one now after seeing your photos.
