The Flip

I attempted to roll my hair in a flip after I washed it last night. It was doing its own thing. Some were just sticking straight out, some were upward, but none had a tight flip. I have seen other loc'd wearers sport this style and make it look great. What am I doing wrong? Do you have any suggestions?
I would have taken a picture of the mess that was suppose to be a flip, but I was trying so hard to do something with my hair that I was almost late for work.
It may have contributed to not fully drying. For the most part it was dry, but I think I felt a little moisture when I took out my rollers.
Well at least I got some overdue retightening done last night. I have a lot more to go, but I still feel like I accomplished something.

Goapele is a recording artist from my Momma's hometown, Oakland California. I really like her style. She has a unique voice. I thought I would post some pictures of her to share her beautiful locs. I first saw her on Soul Train a few years back and fell in love with her locs. I ordered her new CD from Amazon and waiting for delivery. Simply Gorgeous.

Mom's Sisterlocks

I know that the quality is poor. These were taking on my camera phone. My mom is officially sisterlocked. She has a soft texture and it is hard for her hair to hold curls because it is so soft. Her SL consultant rolled her hair with small rods and she didn't finger comb them out. So they look like small Shirley Temple curls. I will have better pictures soon.
That's my little one that she is holding. Have a Wonderful Week!!!
