Guess Where This Is??

It's a small corner in my place of refuge! Yep, since I am certified to do natural hair, love maintaining locks and starting new heads I decided to get a little spot so that I can keep my home private. The two pics on my wall of "Lock Fame" are the two people I started with Nappy Locs. More wall of fame pics to come as I venture off into lockdom.

There is also a pic close to the TV that shows ladies wearing Sisterlocks TM, which I do maintain. It's so crazy because I am actually turning people away since this is a semi hobby and I only do it maybe twice a week in my spare time.

Here's what my last locked sistah wrote: "Creyole I did not want to bother you telephonically, I know you have a busy life with your family. I must let you know when I finally took the hair down I thought it was as gorgeous as I have ever saw my locks. I can't wait to get it done again. The braids were so nice and cool, I wore those a few days,and you helped me in more than one way, since the surgeries in the last 6 months. After my hair I got my nails and toes done. But thank you so much. I will be contacting you right before the first."

We met in a store admiring each others locks and after I became certified she asked if would maintain hers. Now, I am very selective because I do not like drama but she had a very sweet spirit and we had a blast hanging together. Her email to me alone does my heart some good knowing I actually made someone feel beautiful in their locks. I must admit I did an awesome job on her 7 year old locks...shooow did! Maybe, she will let me take a picture of her next time.

Anyway, just wanted you all to know I am having fun in my spare time maintaining locks!!!! Not sure how long my excitement will last but for the most part I am in it for a minute!

More to come ~a dedication to Brunsli for her awesome support throughout the process!

be careful! doing OPH can become addictive, especially since it can be ssssssssoooooo rewarding.

Congrats I am so very proud. I may have to beg to be squeezed in.

BTW - I need an appointment for my daughter for braids. :-)

How lovely! If it weren't for the long commute, I'd book a standing monthly session. Or maybe even every two weeks!
