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!!
