Anyway, my daughter and I didn't want all kinds of stuff (creepy crawly things) to get in our hair so we covered up with the famous "do rags."
Well, a couple of passer by'ers wanted to know what was peeking out from under my scarf and while I really didn't want to take it off in fear of things falling in my hair I gave in. They really liked my "style" as they call it and issued many compliments.
I have one question......why do other races of women appreciate our hair more than our own??? Ok, never mind...I already know, but it really makes me wonder how long will it take before we accept ourselves the way we were created.

We missed all that could not attend!!!! Karen, thanks so much for hosting at the lovely Guest Home, it was first class.
Love, Peace and Soooooooul!

Back to sisterlocks, when I returned I/we were all exhausted and I needed a hair lift to get my energy going. Gigi originally had me scheduled for next week and she was able to move me to today. I went in and she gave me a wonderful repair session and new do. I was on a high when I left and we took some really cute pictures that my camera lost, ugh, I'll never be able to get those back but for now here is what Mrs. Wonderful did to me!
When Gigi learned that I worked out three times a week and was rinsing my hair after each workout, I got the hands on the hip move...... My sides and front are no where close to being locked so Gigi put me on a new regimen:
For the next three months:
- After each work out, use 50/50 Sea Breeze/distilled water mixture and Creme of Nature scalp cleanser to cleanse my scalp
- Only wash every other week so that my hair concentrates on locking
- Do not even think about rinsing my hair
- Continue braiding & banding my sides and fronts as my back is totally locked

Anyone else ever tried Lavender on their locks?
So, here is my collection of Sisterlock/Locking stuff that I feel so lost without if I'm not in close proximity of them. I carry the stuff around like a bag lady and will fight if anyone even remotely appears to touch it. As if someone is going to take the stuff from me and I'm so guarded over the stuff I'm probably one decision away from being a crack head, but instead I'm a lock head. Hee hee. Ok, my jokes are not as funny as Leighann......I digress.
Here's a list of my stuff and why I use each:
From Left to Right:
1. Sisterlock Aloe shampoo - I use it after I shampoo using my Aveda Hair detoxifier (not shown, but formulated with certified organic aloe—to help maintain hair's natural moisture—while detoxifying.)
2. Sisterlock Journal - My very own first publication hot off the press...I love the jet style format and the wealth of information, every Sisterlocker/Locker should have a subscription....I re-read it everyday.
3. The Sisterlock Tapestry of Dreams written by Dr. Cornwell - I use it to reference all kinds of questions. Don't ask me why I have to carry it...it's kind of comforting like Linus and his blanket.
4. Lavender Spritz
5. My little pink carrying case which holds all of my tools , clips and one pair of scissors, all shown on the table. And I did hear what ya'll said about the scissors...thought I'd let that one pass huh?
While many complimented me on my cutting rampage I did hear those of you that emailed and IM me offline to say "STAY AWAY FROM THE SCISSORS!" Still Waters one of my IM buddies especially got her point across to me and I appreciate her candidness. The truth of the matter is after the second cut I tripped out because I no longer had enough hair to braid my locks and wear my wavy "do" without looking like a porcupine. My caruso curlers are my only saving grace right now so, here's what I am going to do...no more scissors for the next year!
Love and Happiness!
