Almost two years old
In less than a month I will have been locked for 2 whole years! Time flies when you are natural and free! Since I started my lock journey, I have converted three dear friends of mine from perms to Sisterlocks. Seems sort of like a small revolution to me. It feels great to be a bit of a pioneer within my intimate social network and to also be a lock idol to them. Not too long ago, it was I who was "idolizing" everyone else's locks and wanting mine to look just like everyone elses, now it is happeneing to me. I have maintained my locks independently for this entire year too! I have done a good job but as I journey through this year, I may utilize my consultant a bit more, I love saving money, but sometimes, I just don't feel like being bothered. Often times, I join a few of my locks and by separating them I have caused one to be thin or even cut one or two off mistakenly...While I certainly don't like doing this, I don't totally mind because I feel like I have so much hair I can't even notice...... but still. I just want my consultant in my hair to work her magic. In any event, here are a few pictures of my hair as of late. The freestyle pic is immediately after a fresh wash and retightening and the othe pic is of me with a braid out. As you can see, my hair is truly shoulder length. Short to some, but long to me, it even gets caught in my coat....While I always had a good amount of hair, I don't remember ever having to pull it out of my coat. To think this is the beginning...What is a girl to do when it is REALLY long?
