The road seems like I just started yesterday and I can hardly believe it's been a year! I initially started with nine inches of bonafide natural hair that had not been permed in nine years.
Many things transpired thoughout my Exodus...
1. Major bunching due to having a three pattern instead of a pattern four installed on my "S" curl hair type
2. Parting had to be corrected due to the installation of organic parting
3. Three major cuts that totaled 4 inches of hair removal because of the bunching
4. Switched Consultants twice and I'm finally on the road to recovery
Even though I've been through the major pains of Murphy's Law, "everything that could go wrong, did go wrong," I believe my locks are beautiful and I've learned to accept them as they are. The back is completely locked and I've got a few locks in the front that slip every now and then. Since I've taken the re-tightening class I'm able to tighten them up before my washes so this does help with the problem.
Most of all, what better 1 year locversary than to share it with my courageous daughter who also loves her one month old Sisterlocks!! As you can see in this pic her locks are already beginning to puff out and she is enjoying everyday of wearing locks.
