I Love My Hair


This was not long after the install - maybe a month?

This is October? I love Ideal Image! Y'all would never get huge detailed pictures of me if I never had the treatments.
















My hair! I really haven't taken any good pictures of my own hair. But here goes. The lower picture is the most recent one. The upload date was Oct 17th. The instal was completed February 23rd.


If you're really paying attention - my parts are LARGE, but I don't think any are over 1/2 inch. At this point I have about 230 locks. OH MY GOD! She only has 230 Sisterlocks. They are not Sisterlocks if she only has 230. Please! Remember, I designed these for ME. It's nothing for me to have 10 of them completely aloose and half unraveled. I understand my hair, the maintenance, and having the average 400 is not feasible for me. First they wouldn't stay in and secondly, I have other things to do than my own hair. Isn't they the point of getting locks - a little freedom?

Amen! The point of locks to me is personal freedom from the "hair industry" machine. Your locks are bee-yoo-ti-ful just like you. Cute! Great Post!

naturally sophia, thank you so much for the compliments. Yes, FREEDOM is what I wanted and FREEDOM is what I have for my hair and myself.

Your hair looks wonderful - when I become a gazillionaire I will fly you out on my jet to do mine - although I'm not that far from you - just in Maryland :o) Now I must go and put my fake locs (small box braids) back in :o)

Hi, so glad you only have 230 locks. I have never counted mine. But my parts are not equal, some are large some are small. My gray hair has taken over and it is trying to come out straight. I love my hair too. This is my 3rd set of locks and I love these so much. My first set I cut(booHoo) don't do that. I love my hair now. I don't have sisterlocks. I used a latchhook.
Aren't you excited about Obama? I am just elated.

Laquita, you are funny with the 'fake locks'. Just leave them in for a month or two. Thank you for the compliments. You don't have to be a gazillionaire, a hundredaire will do. LOL.

Stormee, it's all about who's wearing the locks. Some people are really perfectionists when it comes to their locks - each on has to be the same. That's just not me. I'm just trying to get my hair to lock.
