I LOVE MY SISTERLOCKS!!!

After not getting any sleep at all, I got up early the day after Thanksgiving. Now mind you I totally over-ate, which is something I admit to being guilty of especially during the holidays. Nonetheless, I got up with this sense of anxiety about what I was about to do. I had already made up my mind, but I was going to actually do it. My husband still in the bed with his eyes still closed gave me the words I needed to hear. He said "Honey, you're doing the right thing. Don't focus on the process, but focus on the outcome. But appreciate the process." God knew what I needed to hear because I hadn't even said a word to my husband. So I gathered the strength and drove to my consultants' home. Another thing to be thankful for, she only lives 20 minutes away from my house.

Audrey, my sisterlocks consultant is such a sweet lady. I knew that I would be spending a significant amount of time with her over a two day period so that was a relief. She has a sweet spirit about her and her family is wonderful as well. And after 20.5 hours, I have officially joined the sisterlock family. Please let me know what you think about my new locks. I'll have to update with more pictures when I actually put on some earrings or something :-).




I included a picture of my thinning spot at the crown of my head so that I can keep track of the progress for all those sisters out there like me with this problem. My hair is very uneven and I started my SLs with my hair as short as 2 inches in some areas and up to five inches in others.


And I have to give a shout out to my #1 Supporter, my husband Kwesi. I am so blessed to have someone like him in my life. And as I have no idea where this journey is going to take me, I am glad that I won't have to do it alone.

Chelsea, your hair looks really cute! It fits your beautiful face perfectly. I have a thinning crown just like yours. It's been almost a year-and-a-half and the locks on top of my head are finally getting long enough to cover it.
