Lovin' it Nappy: My Sisterlocks Journey

My journey of going from relaxer, to natural to Sisterlocks. Come along with me and learn how to love that which God gave you naturally!!

Well, I haven't been on regularly, but had a few minutes and thought I'd check in and say hi. I am still considering color for my locks and will probably have it done professionally. One of the students at my campus has beautiful locks and wonderful color. I obtained the name of her colorist and will probably do this next month. I'm really loving my locks and trying to help a few other women come to grips with their own natural hair. I know we all had to come to that point on our own, but we are so often steeped in the "tradition" of having bone straight hair that we can't imagine ourselves with "kinks and all" and still looking good!! I must say I really go a day where someone doesn't comment on how they like my locks. I have been freestyling a lot lately, but I do love the look of them rolled or a braid out.

One of my colleagues just had her SL's installed about a month ago and she is rockin' them. Welcome to the family, B. This sister has made such a transformation in the last year. First of all she has accepted Christ as her personal Savior. Secondly, she has lost a lot of weight and lastly she joined the family. I have included her picture in this post. I used to think she hated the look of my hair, but apparently she was just admiring it and taking it all in as she prepared to go natural.

The other pictures are from my husbands 50th Birthday. I can't believe it. We met when he was 16!!! We've been married 28 years next month. I put my hair up in an up do for the party and was really happy with the way it came out.
Lastly, Get out and Barack the vote!!!! This man has electrified the nation like none other since JFK and I am too young to remember that. So, do whatever you must but VOTE!!
