Research Begins

I immediately went to Google and typed in “Sisterlocks.” I saw the link for the official Sisterlocks site. I clicked and could not believe what I saw. Creator of Sisterlocks, Dr. JoAnne Cornwell on the main page with locs almost down to her butt. I looked that site over from top to bottom. I must have clicked on just about everything there was to click on. I fell in love with all of the photos. I was shocked to see on the Q&A page, it actually said that the coarser the hair the better. I knew that without a shadow of a doubt, this is the answer to my hair problems I’ve been searching for!!!

Yesterday was my sister’s high school graduation and her school had it at the Allen Theater to accommodate more people. Last year was truly a catastrophe. The gymnasium was too small to hold everyone who had waited for that precious moment to see their love one march across the stage. Combine that with the hot weather and the madness was inevitable. Thank God local media covered the story. I was horrified watching that on tv. I didn’t want to have to deal with that when it was time for my sister’s graduation. I know it’s selfish thinking but the Good Lord came through again when my sister told me her graduation would be held downtown instead of at the school.

It was a gorgeous sunny day and I am so proud of my sister. My mother worked really hard to make sure she would see graduation despite giving birth to my niece this past January.

Seating was on a first come first served basis and luckily my Godparents and I got some pretty good seats. While waiting for everyone to be seated and the ceremony to begin, this lady sat DIRECTLY in front of me. She had the most tiny and gorgeous locks I’ve ever seen!!! I was really in awe of her locks. I wondered who did them. Those are the locks I definitely want to have! While wallowing in amazement at her locks, I never did get the nerve to ask her questions about her hair.

I wonder if those are Sisterlocks. I didn’t know anything about Sisterlocks. About a year ago when I tried to kick the creamy crack habit but couldn’t, I came across a lady in my area who had a website about them. I didn’t take the concept serious and went back to my perm addiction. But seeing those tiny locks at my sister’s graduation has got me wondering…BIGTIME. I’ll have to get on the internet and see what I can find out.
