Free Jena 6

Okay, so I am getting into this blogging thing....finally. I have been online for so long reading other people's blogs about natural hair, I have been to countless websites, and have nearly put my eyes out looking at pictures. So here I am folks. I hope that this will find someone out there like myself going through the process of being her true self, in mind, body and spirit.

I have to say thank you to all those who take time to write blogs. My goodness, some are very elaborate. I guess I am lucky if I can stay consistent in updating mine :-) But here goes...

This is the style that I normally wear my hair in. I like it, not much to it. I call it a chunky fro. I twist it at night and then undo the twists in the morning and this is how it comes out. Yes, I do this every single night which is probably not the best thing for my hair. I seem to have all these little hair balls everywhere from my hair coming out with I do it. I have heard that the only time I should do my hair is when it wet. But for some reason when I am twisting my hair when it is wet, it irritates my fingers. It's almost like I am rubbing off my fingerprints. That is the best way I know how to explain it.

This picture was taken on September 20th, wearing my all black in support of Jena Six. It is so sad what is still going on in our country today. But we have to take a stand, it is not over.

hang on, the best is yet to come!!! your beautiful spirit shows thru your blog, your on the right path and a journey indeed it is, I wouldn't worry so much about the bald spot it's probably from years and years of stuff that you have done to your hair it "will" grow back believe it and claim it sit back and watch GOD work! take care of you in side out (Spiritually, mentally, Physically) tho you may not be able to eliminate all of the stresses in your life but find a way to manage it, pray about it, physically work out, and move on :) well thats my theory anyway and it works for me, I'm looking forward to you your new SL's don't forget to pack your patience...WHEW because I forgot to pack mines when I started and take plenty of pics!! Happy locking!!

Your story sounds exactly like mine. I decided to SL when I saw a girls at work. I too started reading every blog I could find to get more information and look at pictures. I think Sisterlocks are the most beautiful locks out there. I just recently got all my relaxed ends cut off too and I have about 3 inches of natural hair that I will have sisterlocked on 22 and 23 so I'll start my new year out with a new "do". Please keep your blog updated, I look forward to tracking your progress.

p.s. you really should see a doc about your crown area if nothing else but to rule out any other serious health condition. Hair you can live without but you must be in good health for those twins you desire to conceive.

Take Care, Carol

Congrats to you as you begin your journey!! I will be sure to track your progress.

And you are right, I really need to get to the doc to get that checked out. I never thought about it like that. You're a doll, and so appreciate the concern.

A good book that addresses scalp issues is "Why are black women losing their hair" by Barry L. Fletcher
