Well first I want to give out Happy New Year shout out to everyone. I am praying that everyone experiences some wonderful blessings this year and beautiful growing locks. I am officially 5 months locked. I don't have a picture because I don't notice visually any difference. On the other hand when I run my fingers along the first couple of inches from the roots, I'm feeling some locking folks! That's right. What I mean is that I'm starting to feel on some of them less of a pattern feel and it's thicker than the rest of the length. Remember I started out with a lot of length going down my back that was still permed. I only had about an inch or two that was natural. On that note as well, as of this month it has been two years since my last perm. Gosh that makes me feel so good knowing that I haven't put that junk in our hair and bloodstream.
About two weeks ago I got my Sisterlock Welcome certificate. It took a long time for that to show up. Although it's just a piece of paper, I felt like I had truly accomplished something by having that in my hand. A sense of pride of first doing something wonderful for myself, being an example to my daughters of how beautiful being natural is, and belonging to a wonderful group of locked individuals (braidlocks, SL's, traditional, palm, etc).
This Saturday I have a retightening appt., after I come home I will try to take remember to take some pictures. Otherwise God bless you all.
Love, peace, and no hair grease.
