Three Years on Loc Down

3 Years 2daDay
Freshly retightened; Week old flex rod set

Greetings, beautiful nubian queens and kings...Blaq is baq. I've thirst to share words and my Sisterlocks journey with you. Life's full and busy and I'm happy.

I celebrated three years on loc down, June 10-11, 2008. Going natural remains
THE most liberating experience of my life. 36 months into this Sisterlocks journey,
there's not one thing I would do differently - other than get Sisterlocks years earlier.

I got into many relationships expecting my partner to show me my beauty, because I didn't see my own beauty. When I was growing up, my heroes or my "she-roes" were the Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman, and Charlie's Angels. And while they're wonderful, they didn't look like me. It wasn't until I fell in love with Blaq-I fell in love with my mocha skin, my full lips, my round hips, my curly hair - it wasn't until that happened that the rest of the world was able to fall in love with me as well.
Lisa Nichols, The Secret
The following styles were worn over the past ten days.

Soft Spike Set
Ad more locks to each curler for a softer look. Spritz with Lottabody as you roll.
Total of about 12 rollers depending on hair density and thickness.
Lottabody absorbs fast. Spritzing as you roll prevents over use
which can cause flaking.

Loose Curl Soft Spike Set
secured w/B-Tie

Braid Out/Krinkles
Wash locks, towel dry, moisturize,
braid in 10-12 plats. Lightly spritz with Lottabody.
Leave in overnight. Take down, finger style for the following looks:

Baq soon with more Natural Awakenings. Until then...Peace & blessings.

Thank you for maintaining your blog! You are a valuable source of information and motivation for me. I met Creole in Dallas two weeks ago and she confirmed my belief that we are Locks-Twins! I've always thought that our locks look alike, and I use your blog for insight into how to style my hair and what to expect from each styling technique/tool.

I check your bog every time I'm online line to see if you have posted anything. I was presently surprised today to find an update! I greatly appreciate your conscientious effort to maintain your blog. (I know what it takes, I'm having difficulty maintaining mine!!) Your effort is not going in vain. Many SisterLocks sisters are waiting on each posting with baited breath!

One Love!

Hi blaq! I'm a newly sisterlocked sister (only thirteen weeks), but I have got to tell you that your locks are georgeous! You are an inspiration! I saw your vacation pics, and was like "Get it girl!". How do you stay in such good shape?

Wendi aka "Wendosa" said...

Ditto to everyone's comments. What can I say, your locs are always lovely and I too check your blog often looking forward to updates and pics. So inspirational you are. Don't stop doing your thing. I just had a b-day on friday, turned 47. I hope that for my big 5-0 I can look as fab as you and celebrate my 3 year with SL's.
Take Care.

Hey Blaq , I've been with you since the beginning. I was freed on June 13th & 14th of 2005, I'm a little shy about this whole blog thing but I just had to say THANK YOU! and by the way you're right on point about that bag that the sheets come in. I'M STRONGER, I'M WISER, I'M BETTER!!

Congrats on 3 years! You are one of my inspirations and I adore your styles. Quick question: i've noticed that your blonde locks have loosened up from the coloring and does that really bother you at all? I ask because I noticed that your locks didn't unravel or bunch from previous colorings except for these streaks, and they were doing very well. Once color touches my locks, they just have a mind of their own. LOL!

Vixen said...

Congrats on your 3 year loc down. I just hit 8 months myself and am enjoying the different stages that I'm seeing in my hair. Your highlights are enviable!
