That's BlaqKofi's Momma

Mom Sisterlocks 25MMom recently celebrated her two year loc'versary. I'm so proud of her. Here's mom a mere two years later with locks sitting on her shoulders, getting compliments left and right and having to pull her hair up off her neck. She even surprised me and did her own braidout for Sunday church. Don't know why I was surprised - that's BlaqKofi's momma.

Mom never studied Sisterlocks or natural hair. She doesn't even own a computer. I remember feeling uncertain and nervous accompanying her to the consultation, still not quite believing she would commit. This is a woman who has been on the same job for 35 plus years - to say she's not a proponant of change is a major understatement. I so firmly knew this facet of her that my mind never even remotely processed the equation of Mom + Natural + Sisterlocks. Don't know why not - that's BlaqKofi's momma.

Consultation complete, test locks installed we thanked my consultant, Gigi and headed for the car. Once outside...

Mom:"I thought we were going to make my appointment to get them put in?"
Blaq: "Are you sure?"
Mom: "That's what I came here for."
Blaq: "Alright then. Let's go make your appointment."

I was so excited. We turned right around and made her appointment. A month later she was on lock down. Little did I know that while quietly observing my natural awakening, mom in turn was awakened. I should have known. That's BlaqKofi's momma!

Two years later, my sister has observed my mom's journey and recently said to me,

Sister: "if my hair could look as good as yours and moms, I'd get Sisterlocks."Blaq: "it can"
Another unlikely equation, or so I thought. She is now preparing to cross over. (I think there's a lesson in there somewhere.)

Each one reach one, teach one, lift one...

Your mother is beautiful and that lush head of hair is what Sisterlocks is all about. You're very lucky to have such a forward thinking mother!

I ran across your site and it inspired me to get Sisterlocks. I'm gonna have to show my mom this post and maybe you'll reach her too. She is always complaining about her hair, and always complimenting me on mine. I told her to get Sisterlocks and she would love them, but she said she is not sure about it. Maybe this post will clear things up. BTW you and your mom look amazing!

Lovely pics of you and Moms. That made me remember I wanted to do a video collage in the exchange for sisters, daughters, moms, and the such! I must put that on my "all call" before the year's up. Tell your Mom Hi! and I love her Sisterlocks.
