Almost 2 Years




Well folks, on the 26th and 27th of this month I'll be celebrating my 2 yr. mark. It's been a sometimes frustrating, but also exciting journey indeed. Do I regret making this decision to get Sisterlocks? Not in your life. This weekend I retightened my own locs, and it only took me from approx. 7 pm, to about 6 am. the following morning, with a break of about 2 hours in between. Yes I stayed up all night doing it because I wasn't sleepy. Anyway, even with the clipping of my permed ends, I have experienced so much growth. A few locs have sealed, but of course majority have not. I was initially told my Therza 2 years ago that it would probably take 3 yrs. to be fully loc'd. Well looks like she was right. It's ok though because I love my hair. I love the ringlets on some ends, the fuzzy ends of others, but those straight permed one's will be defeated! LOL. Anyway, I hope that my journey over the past two years have inspired others to take that leap, especially those who start off will a lot of permed hair like I did. I think I understand myself and my hair so much more with taking this journey. This journey has also sparked other journey's too, like my weightloss. So far I have lost 40 lbs. since the end of February this year. I feel liberated by my hair, and renewed by my size. God bless you all and don't forget....



Love, peace, and no hair grease.

Congatulations on both your weight loss and your locs!!! I am glad that you shared about the permed ends not being sealed yet because at 16 months, mine have not either and I was wondering why. Again your locs look beautiful!!!

Thanks ladies for reading my blog. Euphoria, I may have about an inch left on just a few locs. Most of my head is natural now. I have to make myself put the scissors down. I have different lengths all over because of obsessive behavior. Lol.

Hey, your locs look beautiful...Try not to get discouraged..Your weight loss is a great accomplishment. I'm 16mos locked and some of my locs are still opened because of color...but I love them just the same..Hang in there!!! Some of us are traveling the same road. ;-)
