She is a DIY'er: She maintains them on her own by... PALM ROLLING THEM. (I was shocked!!!)
She uses her special secret beeswax. This lock beauty states that it doesn't really matter what particular brand of shampoo but that she enjoys different kinds that are catered to natural hair. At first when I saw her she had her hair up in a braided crown. ( like the picture below) I honestly thought she had Sisterlocks! After she and I talked about our hair story and history, past to present, she sent me this pic of her tresses down and flowing freely, yet superbly "locked!" I am glad to share this info with you about a great and successful journey with natural 100% REAL HAIR!!! WOW!!! MAKE WHAT YOU GROW BEAUTIFUL!!! This grandmother and DIVA is absolutely FIERCE!!!
Gives me hope... seriously... my next twenty years is looking grand. Enjoying life with my husband and kids.

This style that she is wearing is simple, yet elegant. This picture was taken during Fall season 2013 (Sept/Oct). Her Sisterlocks were recently re-tightened in this pic. I really like her hairline and edges that seem to have free and clean edge, (which is something that I definitely desire and sort of still struggle with.)
When I look back at past pictures, this journey was fun.

As I look at how far my Sisterlocks have come, I can't help but look at how far God has brought me. Although I may not know what all God has in store...yet I trust Him. I know that His plans for me are good and not evil, and I am truly grateful. Jeremiah 29:11. I just love the Lord so much. Tis so sweet just to trust in Jesus! Be Encouraged to Trust God through whatever process you may be going through.
As for my sisterlocks, I have been locked for 3 years, 5 months and 2 days now. I must say I am having an excellent hair week, well month, well you know what I mean. LOL This hair thing is a good adventure. Sisterlocks are so convenient and always in/up to date. 'K Blog Family, I want them a certain length though... Right at my elbows is actually a goal for me. I am on track for about another 24 months or so. Then I would just keep them trimmed. To me it just seems that no matter how long you started off... locks seem to sprout super length around year 4-6. What's your length goal? I am curious to know. Until next time...lock on and on!

A few days after my last post, on June 4 I was admitted to the hospital with multiple pulmonary embolisms in my right lung. I am so grateful to the Lord on today for life, health and strength. I am still taking blood thinners and am following up closely with my doctors each week to have my blood drawn to see if I am still clotting. (PT-INR) I was discharged on June 10 and was able to learn so much during my stay about my spirit, mind, and body. I stayed in the Bible, listened to messages, a lot of them were preached by T.D. Jakes, and continuously prayed and worshipped God. Again I am so grateful to be alive. The signs were very, very subtle and it was nothing or no one but the leading of the Holy Spirit that has allowed me to graciously be here today. Thank God it was not my time. Thank God for His Grace and protection.
As for Sisterlocks, July 2, 2013 made three years that I have been on this journey with my 2nd set.
So today while you celebrate with your loved ones and families, please enjoy life, freedom and the privilege to have a relationship with your Savior and Creator. Please take the time to smell the roses, embrace your children, and stroke your husband's ego. If single, be grateful that God trusts you to FOCUS on Him even more. If married make the most of your happiness and the gift of love, God has given you. If you are in limbo, enjoy the ride, but hold tightly to the Lord's hand, trusting that He has your best interest at heart. His will is that we are GRATEFUL...REMAIN FAITHFUL, (even when you can't see your way), and most of all DON'T COMPLAIN. Tell God all about it! ;) (Thanks DL)

Happy New Year!!!
It has been a blessed year. So much has happened and so much has changed! Thankfully it all has been for the better. As for my Sisterlocks... I am still loving them! I tried to post a slideshow of this past year but I have had some technical difficulties. So instead I will post a few pics.
|So I started to really enjoy this chocolate brown color that I dyed my hair! This was taken around late May 2012.|
|This was taken in June 2012. I wore my hair in different upstyles.|
|You can finally see the color. It was and still is super soft, healthy and a lot of fun!|
|Then I decided to highlight it!!! Yeah I know I'm feeling a little bold!|
|This was about the middle of June! Ok honestly, I loved the highlights! Then...|
|Then a FEW weeks later, with help of the HOT summer sun the highlights got lighter and did NOT look as blended as before!!! mmm...|
|So by August 21, 2012 this was what I had...!!! It HAD to G-O!!! I am very uncomfortable with this bold color on me!!!|
Happy New Year to all!!! Continue to trust God with all of your hearts!!! We are so grateful that our 11 year old daughter does not have any tumors in her brain. The inflammation that was seen was from an infection that she had in her cerebrospinal fluid!!! She is completely healed Praise God!!! We are grateful to the Lord that my husband's recent injury was not any worse. We are so grateful for even unanswered prayers, because we believe that all things work together for the good, for those who love the Lord and for those who are called according to His purpose~ Romans 8:28. We are so grateful as we embark upon this new year that we have fought the good fight, we have finished the race in 2012 and we kept the faith~ 2 Timothy 4:7. Much love to you all! We are so much more than just our hair. Stay with God and lock on and on!
