Let the dance of life begin

I am here to sound off on anything I feel I need to voice about as well as to share and to have others share with me. My sister locks are what got this started.... so here is to celebration of my 'nappy tresses, my sister locks' and indeed life with all it offers.

Ok this is what she wanted

Went to visit my consultant yesterday .... She said the streching got the desired results so she is going to groom instead of retighten on the next retightening appointment and we will take it from there. Ok I am feeling a liittle better but lets see what happens eh. And I thought to myself cut my hair and do what with the hairties(:

S-T-R-E-C-H-E-D maybe to the limit?????

Its funny how something Brunsli posted has taken on a new meaning now!!! I am having issues with my locks and at the moment I feel like I would cut them off!!! and go back to twisting. I spent all day yes 12 hours in the salon yesterday getting my locks streched. I have bunching issues and then after it was streched my locks were put on rollers and I went under the dryer something I have not done in a long time. Now here are my isssues I am not interested in doing that again any time soon (streching) that is. I want to wash my hair my self but I have real issues with my locks matting together and now my locks don't look they way I like them!!!!. Yesterday I felt horrible because the consultant who did my hair spent all day doing it and I was not happy when she was done. Mum said she loved it and so did another freind who saw me yesterday after I left the salon. I like big messy hair maybe thats the real issue and maybe traditional locks would have been a better route to go ): I wonder.

So I am going to pay my consultant a visit and see where I stand!!!! Several of my locks also have holes and those are going to need to be repaired my head is also tender from all the manipulation yesterday. So I have now taken the decision that this cannnot go on forever and so I may just have to give these locks sometime and then make a decision as to the way forward.
ps they do look a bit better to me today but we will see. I did not sign up for so much slavery I want freedom apparently it takes a while to get there with sister locks.

Yup got alot of time on my hands no not really!!!

Yea I know this is like blog over load but Monday (today) is a public holiday National Heroes Day and I have a camera in my possession. So I am featuring my Jade piece (hairtie) and the Kerry I have not done anything to my hair since my retightening so I think this is a pretty good indication of the length. I really wanted to sleep when these pics were taken but I came home and blogged anyway..... I think not I am going to God willing have my hair washed professionally the next time. My hair when wet just wants to shrink and my consultant says right now my locks are beginnning to swell (double in size) so I need to keep them streched and still(no pun intended) (: so thats what I have to do now and I know this may sound 'a way' but I too lazy to do it. So I will be sure to blog about that experience since I have not been to the hairdresser aka salon in a while (: and we know why right!!!!! I am really happy with these two hairties and I got a compliment on the Kerry (from a friend who is supposed to start her traditional locks in January gonna have to put her on to the store)

Kingston City

Sometimes I forget how nice the city looks when you are far away. Why because I am always rushing from here to there and rarely ever take time to stop and smell the 'hibiscuses' Well I did stop a minute to do that today and even had the opportunity to take a pic with my borrowed camera. Now I know if I owned one of these the camera that is I would be taking tonnes of pics... enjoy........

Sweet Sop and Guava

I really was hoping I would get a pic of this before they went out of season... that is. The fruit on the left is guava and the other one is sweet sop. Sweet sop is really sweet and it is especially nice when it well ripe and it has beed in the refridgerator nice and cool. The guava was big I have not seen one that size in a while ...... so just sharing some tropical fruit!! good stuff

Before and After

This is a before and after retightening and my brunsli hairtie (in the back) helps hold back the tresses. one love still Posted by Picasa

WoW its approximately 5 more weeks

Ok I have a confession to make, I thought retightenings over 2 days only happened to Brunz well for the first time I had to go back a second day to finish my retightening........ My consultant said my hair had grown more than usual, the roots in some areas were matted together (my negligence in not separating), so had to also do a mini grooming session of sorts. So now I am going back for my next retightening in 4 weeks to see if it was a fluke or my hair is just...... growing faster. And my one year anniversary is on November 19th so it is just around the corner. I have been on a pic taking rampage so I will share once I have them up loaded!!! I have a lock in the front that my consultant says needs special care or it might soon part company with me but so be it. And I am going back to the starter shampooo for a while until she can figure out whats up with da locks!!!! Thats the hair up date at the mo!!!!!

Today I am in a funk

Not for long though I hope. I got up this morning with so much to do. Case Studies for school coming through my ears and mentally I am just not feeling up to it. I was actually trying to get myself up and out of here to go to the two classes I had but no impetous to do so. Usually when I get this feeling I want to buy something and a hair tie is sounding good at the moment(:

I know what I need to do to get the work done but whats a girl to do when you just dont feel like it????????? And I guess because I am having this issue at the moment I am bored with my hair..... I feel like I could do something different may be some colour but thats not a decision to make spur of the moment because I may regret it in the morning!!! nuh true???

The Lord and I had a conversation this morning so I am here trying to ride out this period of darkness but I just feel so sad!!!!! Well I am going to go now but hopefully I will be back soon with better news

one love still(:
