In my quest for better health, over a year ago I finally considered going natural. I was seriously contemplating dreads but while looking into it, I stumbled across Sisterlocks a number of months into my search. Once the decision was made, a new phase of my hair life began. Goodbye to bad hair days people! My babes were born on June 21, 2008.
See Lue's hair grow here!

Over the last few years I have been going through a process of reconnecting with my natural hair. I had my Sisterlocks installed on November 28 - 29, 2008. This blog is mostly about my hair, but will include my musings on life. Please feel free to read my blog and make comments. Please do not copy my pictures without asking my permission first.

I debated for a while whether or not I should get my hair locked and have long admired sisterlocks. I finally decided to get locked up and my sisterlocks were installed May 19, 2008. Now I wish I would have done this years ago!
Many Lock it Up blogs have been very helpful to me, and I hope me sharing a little about my journey will be helpful to someone else.

I started my natural hair journey in the summer of 2000. It was then I made the decision to stop relaxing, and start accepting myself for who I am. I was in hair school, and after studying the effects of chemicals on the hair I knew that my decision was a good one. I rocked different hairstyles then, braids, afro, press & comb. Still, I knew I wanted to go the loc way deep down inside therefore, I eventually went loc'd permanently in 2001. I haven't looked back since. In the pictures you can see my journey and how far I have come. Its been eventful, but nothing compliments me better or makes me feel as free as having loc'd hair. What an oxymoron huh? Well its not...the term dreadlocks came from individuals who decided the hairstyle is dreadful. But by looking at all of the beautiful people rocking locs now you can see there is nothing dreadful about it. At my natural haircare blog...On the Road to Queendom I will update on products, natural haircare, and beauty all together. Visit me so we can take the journey together!

Cassidy was born in June 2004 and her Sisterlocks were born just 4 1/2 years later! We are thrilled to be able to start out her locs early, knowing that by the time she is 8 or 9 her locs will be long and healthy and she will have so many options with her natural hair. I don't think it would be fair for me to debut Cassidy here without her input, so I brought her over to the computer and she hopped up into my lap as we scrolled though all of your pictures and stories. She said to me, "All those girls have locs like me? I want mine to be down to "here" like hers, and beautiful like "hers", and I want some of them pretty earings in my hair too mama"! Thanks to all of you, Cassidy is so proud of her natural hair. Some things I will never be able to give my baby alone, because she is of African heritage and I am not. I thank God for the women that He puts into our lives to be role models for Cass, and this sisterlocking experience has filled a missing piece of our life. The experience for Cassidy and I to hang out in the city where I was the minority, so God could remind me of how Cassidy feels on most other days. The time in the salon with all the African American women in and out, chatting away, talking to her, lifting her up and encouraging me. The groups of you genuine, awesome, loving ladies to write to me and Cassidy on her blog has been priceless. She loves to read all the comments and I can see such a feeling of acceptance on her face....it's a beautiful thing.
So, all that to say that this journey is much more to us than hair alone. It's a way for me to show Cassidy how proud I am of who SHE is, how God made HER, and for her to love herself naturally. And I had no idea the love and support we would find among the loc'd family out there! A void has been filled in both our lives and we can't wait to see what the future holds, what opportunities will come, what life will bring about as Cassidy grows up loving her locs!
Locs were installed on October 9th 2008 in Philadelphia PA
Locing time was 11 1/2 hours
Loc count 398
We love to hear from you, please stop over and visit with Cassidy at her blog found here:

Before I started my locks I was waring Braids for years after my hair broke off from a perm I had before as a teenager.

I went to locks,that I Love very much.

Hi everyone! I have been wanting to go natural for some time and being out of the country helped me take the leap. I had the last time of seeing my hair break off from being chemically processed, so I finally decided to just do it! I cut off all of my hair and I now have approximately 440 braidlocks and I am excited about my natural hair journey.

What's up locks community? This is your girl, Rashida from Jamaica. Saying that I love locks is an understatement. My third batch of locks, being specifically Sisterlocks, were installed during September 28-29, 2008. I considered it a birthday present to myself (September 29 is my birthday). S0, far they are doing well, and filling out nicely. Right now, I am obsessed with them. I hope that is normal. I encourage you to follow my journey on chinuelocs.blogspot.com. ta ta!

I updated my blog on April 4, 2010. I have new pictures posted that I took right after I finished re-tightening my hair. Check me out! My hair is long enough to pull back in a band and re-tightenings are getting faster.
My blog is primarily about my natural hair journey, but I also have some posts on what it is like being an underrepresented minority at a predominantly white institution. I have also been blogging about my daughter, who in April 2009 was hospitalized and diagnosed with anxiety and depression.
The picture I have posted here was taken about 2 years ago and shows my traditional locs, which I started in 1999 with single braids. In February of 2008 I decided to start over and cut my hair. After 6 months of wearing a short, curly fro I was ready to loc it up again. So in September 2008 I put about 400 micro braids in my hair to start smaller locs. Visit me at Dr. Locs II!

I googled daily on types of locs and found one that I could easily do and maintain myself. My BraidLoc-Anniversary is 8-16-08. Had I been better informed of the many alternatives to locked styles I would have chosen braidlocs years ago. There is unlimited versatility with styling. You have the choice to not chop off all of ones permed hair at one time to get these locs, which I've heard many women speak about. My favorite fact about them is that they're extrememly cost effective. What more can you ask for ?

I's locked now ladies!!!! My babies were born June 24th & 25th. What a day it was. I woke up one morning and said enough is enough. I was going natural. I viewed many sisterlock blogs before that day arrived. Stalked is what my sisters' called it but I had fun doing it and I obtained alot of knowledge and information so thanks ladies for sharing your journey. I knew I wanted locks because my sister had already had them for years and I had watched hers grow into the beautiful state they are in now but I will let her tell her story at happi2bnappi.blogspot.com I'm looking forward to sharing my journey with you guys. Thanks Maryee for allowing me the opportunity.
