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

#BringBackOurGirls

At times watching the news puts a strain on my emotions because it’s hard to face the realities of what our world presents. So as a result I rarely watch the news. However the kidnapping of almost 300 little girls in Nigeria struck a cord. Why? Because while this was going on we (in the US) were focused on the racial comments of a man who really no one knew of or probably even cared about. Ok let me speak for myself… 🙂 But it saddens me to know that as a parent you send your child to school and wake up one day to hear that they have been kidnapped. By a militant group who wants to make and prove a point. Can you imagine how scared those little girls must be?! There are so many questions and so little answers. Why has it taken the Nigerian government almost 20 days to intervene or even respond to this attack? Why has the military not been involved? Why do these parents have to take it upon themselves to go and find their children? I am not a parent…at least not yet; however I can not imagine how a mother or father feels at this very moment. I will make it a goal of mine to pray for the safety and the return of these little girls. If it’s anything I can do it’s that!
