One of my clients was shocked to see me with my locs naturally straight this weekend. She was very surprised by the length of my locs. I prefer to have some kinda of curl & body to my locs so I usually don't wear my locs just straight. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to twist my locs after washing them before my client's appointment. So after I was done with my client I did a 2 Strand twist on small sections all over my head using Taliah Waajid Crinkles & Curls Styling Lotion (I love this stuff!) and since my locs have grown I will just pull the twists back. The next day I wore one of my Tam hats from Da Knitter while I worked. The day after it was time to get to untwisting the 2 strand twists and a twist out was born! :-)

Okay I just received my custom earrings from Chaya owner of Kato Collection. I sent my order to her on 3 Feb and received my order in the mail on 10 Feb! I sent in 4 pictures of Michael Jackson Victory Tour, Pam Grier, Afro Barbie, and MJ and Naomi Campbell. The earrings turned out great! Chaya did a great job on these! I wore the Pam Grier earrings out yesterday and received many compliments :-)

A little over 2 yrs ago when I was a Sisterlock newbie I was searching in desperation for hair accessories to jazz up my new baby locs. I found Tomoka Twist's I think on the Lockitup Sisterlock Group. I thought Mimi's Twists were so UNIQUE that I purchased 3. As I was going through my box of "hair stuff" I found my old Tomoka Twists and fell in love with them once again. ( The pic with the silver beads) So I went back to Tomoka's Twist's Website and there was plenty of different hair accessories and jewelry to choose from. I purchased 2 Hair Ties from the "Happy" Hair Tie Line. One is called Happy Flashing Lights ( that's the colorful one) and Happy Half Baked ( the green stone one). I really like these new ties because you can control the stretch and they have these really cute beads at the ends of the string. Thank You Mimi for the beautiful Hair Ties!

I wanted to share with you a photo from Franz-Che Luvloc's. As I try to remember back I don't think I EVER seen a bride with an afro in any bridal magazines or books! That's why I just loved this beautiful photo of a young lady rocking her fro in a gorgeous wedding gown. I would truly like to see more pictures of women rocking natural hair on their wedding day! :-)

I was reading a post from about what images made you decide or inspired you to go natural? I remember 4 yrs ago when I did the big chop what images inspired me. I put their pictures on my old Fotki album so I went back to that album and paid $25 for access to see those photos once again. Those ladies were Nadia Turner from American Idol fame, the actress T'keyah Keymah, a Nappturality Sistah, and a lady I met at work. The image that inspired my Sisterlocks was a picture of actress Giovonnie Samuels.

I would like to know who inspired you to decide to grow out your natural hair? Who's image continues to help you through your journey?

Whitney Houston

Beautiful performance and Whitney didn't miss one note! I was in tears after watching this one! Well done Ms. Houston! Put the Mixpod on pause and check this video out!
