The secret is out!

I finally told my mother today what my plans were for my hair today. I sent her the link to the sisterlocks website and told her to read up a little bit before she added her opinion. Surprisingly enough, she likes the idea and she had about a million questions. I was happy to answer them because I had done my research and it meant that she was being supportive and trying to understand my decision. I think she gets it and I think she will really love my hair once I have my sisterlocks installed and she can get an in-person visual. Now I am even more excited about getting my SL's installed!

I have a date!

So I had a consultation with Denise at Nubian Solutions. It was a great experience! She was so professional but so friendly at the same time. It was comforting to have her go through the entire process with me. I have very dense hair with a deep curl, apparently so she said my hair will lock pretty quickly! I am getting my sisterlocks installed on October 1st. Maybe the 2nd as well depending on whether or not she finishes on the 1st. I have about 5 inches of hair to work with, which was a lot more than she expected because my hair is so tightly coiled. I am really excited about getting my sisterlocks installed! I just know i am going to absolutely love them. I haven't told my mother yet but I think I am going to wait until after they are installed. I know she will support me but I would rather not have the negativity. I only want to be positive and look to the future with my new found freedom and a head of hair that I can truly love and appreciate. I will continue to update you on my journey and can't wait to upload my first pics with my sisterlocks!

Doing my research

Hello all! i have just started doing my research on sisterlocks. i have been natural for about 6 months now and i love it. this is the most i have liked my hair in my entire life. i am still not in love yet though. i have palm rolls right now and someone asked me if i had sisterlocks. at the time i didnt know what she was talking about so i Googled sisterlocks and found several blogs as well as the official website. i have been reading and researching non-stop. i actually emailed a consultant in my area with a brief story and some questions. hopefully i will be able to meet with her soon. i really would like to love myself totally and my hair is one of the main things stopping me from being able to do so. i will keep you all posted on my journey!
