Many of you have e-mailed, instant messaged, etc. asking me if I was sick or had abandoned my blog. Well of course not! I have been living and being supernaturally inspired by life and growing up a bit. Also, I must say when you all ( bloggers, lurkers, enthusiasts) don't comment, naturally Sophia feels like she may have wasted her time a tiny bit because no one else shares their thoughts :) You know no one likes playing to an empty room. Ok I'm done whining now.
Great News! Something magical happened, my locks turned 3 today. They are out of the terrible 2s and have started to grow and calm down a bit. I must confess I have never missed my afro more, well more like half-fro because it always looked more like out than up. But I don't miss the maintenance of having a foot long plus fro. I have learned so much about Sisterlocks in the past 3 years. I'm going to post on things that personally helped me soon.
I'm growing out the color too. No more color at the roots. I read an article that suggested peroxide leads to premature grays (ouch!) in the May 2010 O Magazine. I love Oprah! I also love white hair but don't want to hasten the process.
Here are some things I have done in the past with my locks:
Here I am today:
And here's what I want to do in the future:
