Sisterlocks - Transitions

On February 14, my consultant, Gigi and fellow consultant Tafi hosted a "Customer Appreciation" event. Their invitation described the day perfectly. Here's a written and visual recap of a beautiful day of Sisterlocks and Sisterhood. Let's come together to share these things: our natural 'hairstory' and our caring for each other.We'll enjoy pure food, curly fun, springy information, nappy updates, natural relaxation services, twisty new products, and more.Additionally, meet new Sisterlock friends and get caught-up with old ones.

What's in store: Vendors (i.e. hair jewelry, botanical skincare, African quilts, massage therapist and wonderful vegan food."

"Here we are, the dawn of a new day in a new year with a new president, a new outlook, and most importantly a new you to celebrate!

And lots of Sisterlocks and Styles!
Gigi - Transitions - Gigi announced after over 30+ years in the hair care industry she is transitioning to her next higher good - that of being a Life Coach. It was a bittersweet moment as she announced that most of her clients would transition to Tafi. Her clients already know of her calming nature and insight. Undoubtedly, she'll be a successful life coach. Afterall, she's been unofficially coaching everyone who has had the privilige of sitting in her chair, particularly me. You can visit her coaching site at Gretchel Johnson Coaching.

Tafi - Transitions -
 Tafi is fast becoming one of the premier Sisterlocks Consultants in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. She has expanded Sisterlocks and natural hair care services to include washing, setting and styling. You can view her styling talents in the photos posted here. She can be reached at

BlaqKofi - Transitions -  My blog has been my venue for educating Sisters about the beauty and freedom of naturalness and Sisterlocks. As I write this, I am in Houston, Texas attending Sisterlocks Consultant training. I moved to Oklahoma with my husband after our marriage last year and learned that there is not one certified Sisterlocks consultant nor trainee in the entire state! I've thought of taking the Sisterlocks training for some time. The right circumstances and timing presented themselves and here I am. I am so excited to have the option of not only writing and motivating sisters to their natural freedom, but actually being able to offer the service of crossing over. For those of you in the DFW Metro, please extend your support and patronage to both Gigi and Tafi. Anyone in Oklahoma desiring to cross over or in need of retightening assistance, I would consider it a privilege to have you as my client.

But for now, I have to go and prepare my mannequin's locks for
class tomorrow.

Until then, remember...

Remain focused, remain lifted and remain natural.
