-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?

    Cute glasses sis. Sorry I missed the B-Day fun, but I'll make up for that soon. So, you think you are locking huh? Well, you're hair looks exceptional and I can't wait to see it in person!

    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
