I need motivation for rooting. I can’t seem to get myself to work on Katie Marie. Between her having a giant head and me not really liking to root in the first place it feels like I’m getting nowhere. Ugh! Anyone else get like this?
I root in smaller 1”x3” sections at most, this helps a lot because even big heads feel less daunting! That’s about the only offer of motivation I can offer though. Maybe if you like to get your nails done after or something like that?
I just set my timer for half hour intervals so. This way it didn’t seem like I was sitting forever and I got to get up a stretch or paint on another baby in between.
I am no help because I, too, am unmotivated. Two babies sitting for weeks. I picked one and rooted for seven hours Monday. I haven’t picked it up again. I’m not even a fourth of the way done. Big old heads. Plus my hands and wrists hurt when I root.
I have been working on her since March and I have about a fifth of her hair done. I keep taking way to long breaks (weeks lol)
I would put on Netflix and try a documentary… then enjoy doing it! Or music
I started listening to an audio book and managed to root for three hours. Time flies when your not focusing completely on rooting. My hands feel like they are gonna fall off but I got quite a bit done, so, yayy!
I have a detest for rooting. I love rooting lashes but that’s it. I can’t sit for too long and it hurts my hands and wrists also. Mohair makes me itch lol. I’m no help but I have to say I love these ideas of smaller sections, setting a timer and getting those nails done haha. Edited to add I use prisma
That’s great and what a way to do it. Yes hands get sore and 3 hrs isn’tbad. I only root at night when the house is quiet
I section off the hair with chalk (narrow sections from top to bottom, the whole top gets done after all the surrounding hair) and designate how many sections I want to do each day. I tell myself: Ok, I gotta get this section done before I can stop. You’d be surprised how each section gets you closer to the finish line!! We all get bogged down when it comes to rooting.
I’m gonna try this when I work on her tommorow. Thank you!!
