33 Months Locked up & Retightened

Wow, time flies, and hair grows faster than you think. I don't post often as the main focus of my blog is my Sisterlocks, and waiting for hair to grow is sometimes like watching paint dry...B-O-R-I-N-G!

Initially, I was super juiced and wanted to chronicle every moment and detail of my locking experience. I was taking pictures every 6 weeks after my retightenings and began to notice that the pictures were looking pretty much the same. Oooh, look, my hair grew half an inch. For real? Who gives a rip? I mean, don't get me wrong, I still ooh and aah over my hair. As soon as I get home I'm in the mirror monitoring my progress, but I like to think that I have sense enough to know that I'm the only one looking THAT closely at my hair.

Well,when I got home tonight from my retightening, put on my jammies, and actually felt hair on my back, I had to grab my hand mirror and check it out. Yep, it's there. I was looking back at my 2 year pics, and 14 months, and there is definitely a measurable difference. Something worthy of sharing.

This is the hair I've been waiting for all of my life. I can swim, work out, shower, wash my hair and go with the best of them now. Gone are the days of running to get out of the rain, or having to stay out of the pool for fear of having to face a major hair crisis. Sisterlocks are insurance against a bad hair day, and I'm loving every minute of it.

Sisterlocks Photoshoot




Dr. Cornwell and Sisterlocks came to the Bay Area on February 16-17th, complete with a photographer. You know I had to take advantage of the opportunity to update my photos, and my blog.

I celebrated my 2nd locversary on December 28-29th, but had no pictures to commemorate the occasion. Well, here they are...

I am finally beginning to have some length - yea! I am so greatful to my fellow bloggers. Everything you said about having patience, following the proper care guidelines for my locs, braiding and banding when it was appropriate, kicking the product junkie habit and letting my hair just do what it do. It's working, and I love it! Thanks yall!
