My locs are 9 months old 9/29/06

I was feeling really good about my hair today when it dawned on me that 9/29/06 marked my 9th month with my Sisterlocks. I decided to memorialize the occasion and had my son take a few pictures. Can you tell I'm happy with my hair? I've been setting it with Crinkles and Curls, and rolling it on orange perm rods which I guess are about medium sized. They're bigger than my small Soft Spike curlers but not as big as my large Soft Spikes. My curls last about a week, falling gradually. This was taken about 5 days after my wash and set.

The Roots by JustRemy7 Photography.

While the rest of our family was camping last weekend, Remy, our resident photographer, was at the Roots and Tribe Called Quest concert working as usual. You go girl! Posted by Picasa

Big Hair Days

These are some photos of my tree braids in Mexico - about 10 days before I returned home and had my Sisterlocks started. Two of the pictures are of my husband and I and the third is my brother-in-law.

I don't know if you can see it or not but the hair that is resting on my shoulders is balled and matted - it was a hot mess. I was frustrated and disgusted and it was there I decided to move forward in getting my Sisterlocks. I literally called the consultant the day after Christmas, had my consultation on the 27th, took out the tree braids on the 27th, started my locks on the
28th and finished on the 29th. No more lies, no
more lyes! Posted by Picasa

36 Weeks and Counting!

I saw my consultant Wendy on Monday 9/11/06, for a retightening, and thought I would take the opportunity to update my blog. I am 36 weeks into my lock journey and loving it. I finally have more locked hair than permed ends, hooray! The perm is actually just coming off on it's own. I will admit to having a few episodes of loc envy, where I took a pair of scissors to a few of my locs to rid them of the permed ends. I just wanted the little curly q natural ends... I managed to regain my composure without doing too much damage.

I must give a shout out to Maryee, for helping me figure out how to create a photo collage as I had been admiring the ones on her blog but for the life of me could not figure out how to create one of my own. Thank you! Posted by Picasa
