1 Year Loc-Versary

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. Posted by Picasa

LaChanda you are quite a trooper. Thank goodness you were able to bypass the option of giving up on your locks. They are totally fabulous and this style is sooo cute!! I wish you and your lovely daughter much blessings as you both continue on with your hair journeys. I love the jewels. Please tell me how I get them.

Tanya,
Thanks girl, the jewels came from a little shop in one of our Dallas malls. Not sure if you can find them anywhere else, I'll ask and follow-up with you in New York.

Three weeks and counting, New York here we come!

Brenda/Sharon,
Thanks for the sweet words!

Congratulations, your hair looks great and I love the style. I had been trying some different styles but lately I have been lazy and haven't been doing anything, but wash and go. It's only 2 weeks to New York now and I can hardly wait. Look forward to seeing you there.
