Greetings, I have been natural for 4 years and loved every minute of it. I had braids for a long time and then one day, BAM I went to church sporting a Fro. At the time, I never thought I could be a loc wearer because I kept thinking "If I decide I don't like them anymore, I will have to cut off all my hair". The mere thought of that was more than I could bear. I started locking my two oldest sons hair in March '08 and my younest son's hair in August '08. Still, I never thought I could be a loc wearer - but then I started to give it more thought and the more I thought about it, researched different methods, lurked through different blogs and worked on my sons locs, the more I started to long for them myself. After overcoming some huge fears in '08 - I decided to end the year jumping an even bigger hurdle - jumping into the land of LOCS. I gave birth on December 20th to 435 braidlocs. The best thing about them is, I did them all myself. Yippee for ME. LOL!! It was a lot of work but well worth it. I've been asked if they are sisterlocs which is quite a compliment because Sisterlocs are truly beautiful but, I would never spend that much money on my hair (don't mean anybody any harm, that's just my opinion). So, check me out , http://afrolady-theupperroom.blogspot.com/ because I will certainly be checkin' you out (wink!) don't forget to leave me some positive vibes!!

HELLO Loc Wearers Everywhere!
Hailing from the island of St.Croix, I'm the Loc'd Lady of CrucianNaturals.net. I started my locs in June 2005, and have never looked back. This journey has been one of spiritual and personal growth, and my locs symbolize my promise to continuously improve and uplift myself. I've learned a lot on this journey, and decided to document it on my blog, so that I can not only share the KNOWledge that I've gained, but also my interests, my ideas, and my feelings.
And, if you like what you see, send us a comment, register with us, and by all means Tell A Friend!

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.
