I’m now 2/3 of the way through my retightening, and my head is still sore.  I gently styled my hair into a messy side swoop today.  Pulling too tightly will only add to my sore scalp.  I popped open a few beads from JoAnne’s and slid them up my micro locs.

If you have trouble getting beads to make their way up your locs (like I did), you can make a simple paper clip beader.  I actually use this homemade device to put beads in my daughter’s hair.  I’ll have to find the Youtube video that showed how to do this.  Just be careful to not poke a hole through your loc when you use the paper clip tool.
