I went to Whole Foods today and picked up some Rosewater in an attempt to moisturize my locs. I have fuzzy textured hair and on top of that it is this sandy reddish/brownish color so it tends to look a little dull at times. We'll see how this works. I spoke with my consultant about it, she said that it would be ok for me to use this in my hair but she wouldn't suggest anything else so soon.

I Got Pics...

OK, the email finally showed up in my inbox and viola. These are my SL's at about 8.5 weeks old. I was talking with someone last night about my hair because they have decided to stop perming due to thinning issues. They commented that they would continue to watch my hair because they didn't know if they could get throught the initial stages when your hair sorta does what it wants to. By the time they decide, I will be trained and ready to go by then!!!


This isn't the best picture, but my girl did the best she could. On this picture, you can sorta see how fuzzy my hair is. I know that it is all about the texture and I have about 3 different textures in my head, now that's diversity :->

2 month anniversary

Today is my two month anniversary. I had pictures and everything. My girlfriend took them on her digital and emailed them to me but I haven't gotten the email. I know that she sent them to the correct email address. Sucks huh? Oh well, don't fret, I'll get to the bottom of this yet! Ya'll know it's Friday and it's time to go home so excuse my goofiness :->

My 1st Retighten

Hey folks...I got my first retighten on Saturday and it took about 2 hours. It hurt a little, but I could handle it. There were two that were put in too big and she had to take them down and relock them smaller. I recall reading someones site and they took down 9 month old SL's so that they could get them put in smaller. Just from the two she took down in my head, I know that person must have lost half of her hair. I believe if I ever wanted them out, I would just cut them and start all over. I know that I won't though. Even though my locs are not where I want them to be, I know that I am well on my way. Oh well folks, let's keep lifting the victims of Katrina up and much love to you all!

Gas Prices and Compliments...

I just left the gas station, the last place I want to be. I am pissed about the gas prices. Um, umh, me and my babies might be pulling out the bikes :-> If prices go much higher, it won't be about the ability to pay, it will be about me refusing to pay because they are taking advantage of our dependency on gasoline when our country is at one of its weakest moments.

Anyhow, while at the gas station, I saw an old classmate. She was like, "girl your hair is so cute, who did it?" I told her and she was like, "Girl, how much does she charge?" I asked her if she knew what they were. She thought that they were some sort of twist. Then she asked again, how much? Now, i'm used to people looking at me like i'm stupid when I say how much, so I braced myself and told her. I also explained to her why they were so expensive and how over the long haul they are actually less expensive, both time-wise and monetarily. She sat there for a good 5 minutes admiring my hair. She told me I was going to make her stop perming her hair. Thing is, I need mine do so bad that what I know could look better, she thinks it is georgous. I ended up giving her my phone number so that when I finish the class in November, if she is able, she can get her hair done too.
