Do You Know What Today Is? It's My Anniversary!

I was told I was missed. Thank you!

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:

Please click on each one of these styles. Aren't they adorable?

Hi Sophia, Kim from Charlotte. I look, read, watch and listen. Don't stop, you know you're loved because you made a lurker like me speak up.
April was my 3 yr anniversary of traditional locs.

Congrats on reaching year three!
It's been a while since I last saw you at Whole Foods {Ponce de Leon}.
So far, my weekend is nice. We got off/on rain showers, but that is good. Two days ago, I took out the last several braid ext.
Maybe we will see each other again soon~
Take Care~

Way to go on making 3 yrs :-) The way people start, stop and restart dreads these days, that's quite an accomplishment lol

And the braided mohawk from BGLHonline is fierce...Please post pics if you decide to do it!

Your locs are GORGEOUS! Makes me want to start all over and do sisterlocks.

Naturally Sophia said...

Thank you all! I love comments! You are all so kind.

T'arr.a- What's done is done a great woman once said. I like your locks as they are. I thoroughly enjoyed the freedom of my first set of locks that required less maintenance and were less costly. :)

Congratulations on 3 years. I have missed you. I stopped reading blogs as often as I used as so many of my favorites do post as often. I'm showing you some love to encourage you. Thanks for the posts.

Naturally Sophia said...

Hey Quiet Spirit! Thank you for the encouragement. Please comment more. I will be posting more this week, the following month and so forth.
