Regarding my hair, it is holding up very well. I am not sure if I can call them sisterlocks anymore because I have been a DIY’er for a while now. And I do not regret my decision at all to take on the challenge. My retightenings have been getting faster and faster, although I haven’t actually timed it because I fit it in when I can. I can just tell a difference in how much I can get done in a short amount of time.
Again I will say, I wish I locked my hair a long time ago. Funny how I went from never doing the “nappy hair” thing, to loving my naps! It made me really think because recently I was visiting with family and I was spending some time with my niece who is bi-racial. She made the comment that she wished she had “white” hair and I almost fell out of my seat. But then I had to realize that I used to be the same way at her age (11 yrs old) and she has even more pressures than I had when it comes to the way she views herself, namely her hair. I just pray that I will be able to help her in her own self-awareness of what true beauty really means. Regardless of if your hair is straight or nappy.
Here are a few pictures of my little angel – Kaleb Joshua. It’s hard to believe that he will be 7 months old already. I am learning to cherish every moment, they go by so fast. He's killing me with those ears...LOL!
