Loc Styles

This is my first attempt at a french roll. I think I did a pretty good job.

Confessions of a product junkie

I'll admit it, I am a product junkie. I have tried several different shampoos, conditioners, moisturizer, oils and hot oil treatments.I think I have found the perfect shampoo and conditioner for me.  I'm still on the search for the perfect oil...or oil combination.

For the last few months I have been using Tea Tree Naturals Shampoo and Conditioner (by Fantasia) and I love it! It is reasonably prices, smells great, leaves my hair feeling clean and moisturized and leaves no buildup. What more could one want.

Loc mesh bun thingie

I was checking someone else's blog and and I saw that the put their locs in a little mesh bin thingie (not sure of the proper name for it) and it was cute. I went to the hair store yesterday and bought a mesh cap for about 33 cents. I came home and put my hair in the mesh cap and used a think back hair tie to secure it...then I was ready to go. I was going to put a few quick curl tendrils in the front (via a quick little braid-out) but I didn't have enough time and didn't want to be late for church. It's a simple little quick hairdo.

I thought this video was just too cute.

Not off to a good start

Ok...soooooooo I didn't make it to the gym this morning.

My excuses:
~I had to take my husband to work this morning
~I had to run a few errands
~I had to set up my sisters computer and all of the peripherals and extras

I haven't exactly eaten healthy so far today...but I didn't eat unhealthily either. I know today isn't over, but I doubt I'll be working out any time the rest of the day. OK...tomorrow is a new day. I'll start with a work out and a healthy breakfast...then it's off to the job.

New Journey

In addition to my loc Journey I have decided to begin a weight loss journey. I have been with the same man for 7 years and of those 7 years we have been married a little over a year. In that 7 year time frame I have gained about 50 pounds...and we have no children. My work schedule makes working out tough and sometimes impossible. However, my plan is to improve my eating habit, incorporate working out (even if it is just work out tapes) and shed the pounds.

I am new to this blogging thing. I'll try to blog regularly...

I'm learning to braid...and I am starting with my own hair.

Here are some of my style...and attempts from 2009

I'm not really sure what I call this one.

These are some of my SL styles from 2008

Loc Styles from 2007

Sunday, September 6, 2009

I like to view the websites of other people with Sisterlocks, traditional locs, and braidlocks and try to emulate their styles.

The start of my journey

I have had my Sisterlocks since February 2007. Prior to my locs journey tried short hair cuts, braids, two-strand twists, name it. I have finally found true happiness with my locs. This blog will detail my Locdom Journey.
