-Hair, Hair, and more hair!-

Hey S.L Sista's. Today I am 11 weeks locked and still quite satisfied with the process. Last week at my retightening seson, Akilah, my loctitian told me that quite a few areas have already locked. Horray ^_^

This past weekend, my daughter turned 15. My sister and I took her and several of her friends to San Francisco. While there, the weather turned grey with thick, heavy, and windy mist. No problem, my sisterlocks held up just fine. I just finished reading "Hair Story: Untangling the Roots of Black Hair in America." It was written in 2001, not so new, but it sure was insightful. As a people with our "hair thang" we've come a long way, but much work still needs to be done. Has anyone else read the book or have any other good books to suggest on this subject?

    I JUST finished reading this book! It was so excellent, Excellent, EXCELLENT! The afro as a political statement. Annie Turnbo and Madame C.J. Walker. I thought Sisterlocks was the same type of pyramid business, but after our meet and greet with Dr. Cornwell last Sat. I discovered it was not.

    Here is a list of books I have in my arsenal. 1) Nice Dreads by Lonnice Brittenum Bonner. 2) A Tapestry of Dreams-- The Sisterlocks Book by Dr. Cornwell 3)Let's Talk Hair by Pamela Ferrell 4) No Lye by Tulani Kinard 5) Going Natural by Mireille Liong-A-Kong 5) Tenderheaded by Juliette Harris and Pamela Johnson, 6-10) The Sisterlocks Lifestyle Journals
