It’s My Anniversary!!

Good Morning My Good People!

This post is long overdue but better late than never! 🙂 In June I celebrated my 2 year loc anniversary!!! It still amazes me that I’ve actually kept them in this long. But every day I fall more and more in love with them and remain very proud of my decision to loc my hair. Below are some updates:

1. I no longer band and/or braid (if you are a Sisterlocker you will know exactly what this means).

2. I can now use moisturizer (which is awesome because dry hair/scalp is no bueno!!).

3. I now have some hang time (yes LAWD! I can throw these babies in a ponytail and have some hangage lol).

4. I am not fully locked yet. The shafts of my strands are fully locked however my ends have not sealed yet.

5. My re-tightenings are every 6 weeks ( I started off with every 4 weeks).

6. I still get slippage. That’s primarily because of my hair texture, so in essence this will be inevitable for me.

7. Curls are my bestfriends (primarily because I have a sensitive scalp and most updos give me a headache).

8. Comparison pictures are below.

Left: 4 months           Right: 2 yrs

An Anniversary Never Worth Forgetting!

Today marks the 5th Anniversary of the strongest earthquake that caused many in Haiti to lose their lives! On that day my tears could not stop flowing. To see the amount of damage, devastation and despair was just heart wrenching.

Today many are still mourning the death of their loved ones. They will relive the painful memory. I will pray for peace and comfort. However one thing I am certain of is that the Haitian people are a reliant people. They know how to push through and they always bounce back!  I am proud to have the blood of such a blessed people running through my viens!

Let’s never forget! #L’unionFaitLaForce #WeAreA ReliantPeople #MyHeritage #NeverForget #HaitianPride #Ayiti #AyitiCherie #01122010
