In the beginning...
Greetings all, I located a few pictures of my hair at the start of my locking journey, October 2003. It's amazing how quickly time flies when you're happy, nappy and free. A few days ago I reached my 26 month milestone. It's been over 2 years now and I am just getting started. Initially, I thought I'd be locked completely by now, but as they say no two heads of sisterlocks are alike. I alsways thought I had "nappy" hair but through the process of locking, it has been detremined that my hair is rather soft and loosely curled or waved..definitely not the best hair for locking.
But despite all that, the many twists, turns and tears...I've made it and I am happy to stand before you as a Sisterlocked sister, one of a family of thousands who share the joy of living in a natural world.
To those of you with that "difficult to lock" "ain't never gonna lock" "too soft" "good hair"...be encouraged. It will happen with time. I'll be posting new pics tomorrow after part 1 of my retightening (Wish me luck, I'm going to a new consultant this time). In the meantime, here are some pics from the very beginning (Day 1).
