3 Years!!!

So it's my 3 year lock anniversary and I decided to dye my hair! Well, kind of. I did an auburn rinse (not bold enough for permanent color). It's subtle but I like it. I will post pics soon.

I retightened my hair and am really noticing my length now. I mean my hair isn't super long, but I've come sooooo far from when I started. I can't wait to do comparison pics.

This is cliche, but it doesn't seem like it's been 3 years. I've gotten so used to (spoiled :-)) with my locks that I don't think about my hair as much anymore. Imagine that, it's just hair ;-)

I do have an appreciation for it when I do a consultation with a client that's in the same seat I was 3 years ago. We all have the same story in different variations. Tired of chemicials/relaxers/weaves/braids/etc., hair broke off after (pick a reason), wanted to go natural but didn't know how to, want to be more healthy, and fell in love with Sisterlocks after seeing them somewhere. I still like the idea that I can introduce other women to something that freed me from many of my hair woes. And I'm still loving every minute of it.

Pics coming soon...

Can't believe it's been this long

March 19, 2011 marked 34 months since I got locked up. In just 2 months I'll be celebrating 3 years with Sisterlocks and I can hardly believe it. I can't wait to do comparison pics, because it's still hard for me to see my progress. I can tell my hair has grown some, but I still would consider it short. Either way it's in much better condition than when I started, so I can't complain.

I decided to break my lazy streak last night and attempt to style my hair. I did a braid out while I was laying in bed, so it's not perfect but it's something :) I'll have to take some pics of it after I unbraided it and post them later.

It's been a while...

It's been a while since I've posted anything, but I finally have some pictures for an update. I took these in January when I was at about 32 months. I can't believe it will be 3 years for me in May! Time sure flies.

My hair is still growing, and I've been lazy about styling lately. I'm not liking my rod sets as much these days. I tend to use a curling iron just to add a slight curl to my hair, but I mostly wear it straight.
