My retight is on Saturday so I wanted to make sure I got my eyebrows arched before my appointment. I never knew how much an eyebrow arch could add so much to enhance the facial features. I go to Chris, owner of Untouchable Barbers. He really does a fabulous job. Chris is the one who introduced me to having my eyebrows done when he use to cut my hair for me back in '98. I've been so grateful ever since. Thank you Chris!

Just like everyone else, I've settled in with washings every 7-10 days. Right now I'm using the Sisterlock family of hair products. At first I would wash with the Sisterlock Green Tea Botanical Shampoo and then a second time with the SL lock starter shampoo. Lately, I'm trying to wash with just the starter shampoo only. But I miss that tingling feeling on my scalp from the Green Tea. In addition, I use the Tonic for Dandruff recipe from LockItUp to help with the itching and flaking.
As I inspected my locks a few weeks ago, I was so overjoyed that I didn't see any split ends!! It's been over eight months since I've had a deep condition treatment and now 7 months into my journey, I feel I am long overdue. I chose to go with the Sisterlock Reconstructor. I probably won't be doing another conditioning treatment for about another 6 months. I believe in moderation.
One more note, I emailed Vickey a few months ago and she told me about mixing one tablespoon of the SL Moisturizer spray with 8 oz of water. I'm now ready to try the concoction for those midweek refresher treatments.
Despite the shrinking, I can now see some noticeable growth. Yeah baby!

They kept on walking until they found an oasis where they decided to take a bath. The one who had been slapped in the face got stuck in the mire and started drowning. But the friend saved him after he recovered from the near drowning. He wrote on a stone: Today my best friend saved my life.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best friend asked him, “After I hurt you, you wrote in the sand and now you write on a stone, why?” The other friend replied, “When someone hurts us, we should write it down in sand where winds of forgiveness can erase it way. But when someone does something good for us, we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever erase it.”
Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to carve your benefits in stone. They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but an entire life to forget them.
MOM, MY FRIENDS, MY SISTERLOCK BUDDIES – I LOVE YA!!!!!

Last night I was out with a friend having some superb margaritas and appetizers at Lopez restaurant. I could not help but notice a locked head in front of me at a table over. When I saw the little one with the baby locks, I was swept away. A good blog opportunity was about to go to waste had it not been for my friend's camera phone. I boldly tapped on Nicki's shoulder and sparked up a conversation. She politely obliged my photograhing her and the little one's lovely locks. I find it is a lot easier to be so forthcoming with fellow locked heads. Very interesting indeed. Anyway, I think they are absolutely adorable.
