60M SL

I am STILL digging my Sisterlocks. 5 years, 4 cuts and a completely different perspective on hair like I've never understood before and I LOVE my Sisterlocks. I have been to countless natural hair care conferences, Sisterlocks and/or Lock meet ups around the U.S., and indulged in classes on styling, maintaining and promoting natural hair through Locked styles. I have met and continue to converse with numerous Locticians who are AMAZING with their talent and creativity. You know what? I made the right decision 6 years ago when I decided to stop altering my hair texture by putting chemicals and straighteners in it. My regimen is simple. I retighten my hair every 5-6 weeks (I actually schedule an appointment with myself in my own studio chair). I wash my hair every 7-10 days. I don't use any products outside of shampoo and a dark brown rinse that I MUST use until I decide I want to rock grey Locks. :o) I have been wearing updos, braid outs, roller name it. Even my sweet grandbaby loves my Sisterlocks. It's the first thing he goes for when I pick him up. ;) I just wanted to do a quick post. My clients have been very fussy about my blog. Take a look at the pictures and you can tell...I am Happiest Nappy. Blessings to you from my heart!

52M SL
Wow! I haven't blogged in over 6 months. So much has happened since I have been away too. Before anything, you should know that I am carefully considering my blessings each and every day. Nothing is promised to us. Nothing. With that being said, I encourage you to live your life to the fullest.

In 6 months...we had a flood. My Mother passed away. My very first Grandchild was born (pics below). He didn't get to meet my Mother before she took her flight, but he was right there with her through my daughter until the very last moment. She would have fallen in love with him! I took a few risks only to appreciate my courage later. Through it all? I have not one single complaint. God has the best plan for me and my family. His course is mine and I am satisfied with it. RIP Mom. I miss you and cry everytime I pick up the phone to dial your number from work. I miss our morning conversations that end up with both of us cracking up at family & life situations.

Hey! How is your natural hair journey coming along? I am still enjoying my Sisterlocks! I "trimmed" my SLs and gave myself a deep cleansing and twist set today. The results are the pictures in this post. I love providing Sisterlocks as well. To my clients, are you keeping your SLs clean and covered? Are you shampooing properly and using the techniques we talked about? Are you sitting in my chair for regular maintenance and upkeep? Are you eating properly and drinking lots of water? Those are all key steps to healthy SLs, but you know that right? :o)

I just needed to swing through my blog. I still enjoy blogging and plan to make more time to do so now that things are calming down a little bit. Hey! God bless you! Blog you soon.
