Hell Ya!

Hair Before:

Hell Yah,

I have four days left and at this point. Now I can STOP talking my love ones and everyone else to death about getting my sisterlocks done.

At this time I have to say that I'm a little scared, truth be told.

Like, what if I don't like it?

What if my head looks like a Chia Pet for the first two weeks?
So many questions, so little time :-)
I figure if I don't like it, I will just cut it off and start over.
Even though it can be taken down by hand, that looks like something that my soul will not allow. So they will be here to stay.

So for now, I coming to join all you sexy ladies..
Marching with the wind blowing.

Until then........................

Question of Hair Color



----^---------------^---NOT SEXY?-------^------



Natural Reddish Brown

images from:

This post is to ask about personal choices when it comes to HAIR COLOR.

Despite whether your a locks lover, like me or your programmed to think of locks as a dried pieces of rope that the hype would like you to believe, (Which is not true by the way). If you have not seen someone with beautiful locks free flowing and healthy, you would be lead to believe what you hear.

However every one has a personal preference of what hair colors are considered to be be sexy, retro or just plain ghetto. Both men and women, all races and on any hairstyle everyone has an opinion of this subject.
Picture it: Your walking in the mall and coming towards you is a woman over 18 years old, who has on blue shoes, a white shirt, and yes black hair with bright BLUE ends.
Now for some, the thought process would be:
Hair colors like blue, ice bleach blonde or pink, white; red or even a traditional Blondie on a black women are seen to be more "Taboo", to most black people and every other racial group. Now of course their are exceptions to every rule and their are a select few who can pull off being a Blondie or red headed and rock it like a super star. But never the less some colors were created for Halloween but are now being worn as everyday hairstyles. This debate goes across all economic lines and races. When dealing with your profession or even being seen as a powerful force when these styles are being worn on a daily basis. Most careers, not jobs when working under someone or in a business setting will NOT allow an employee to work with rainbow shaded hair. When dealing with the public, more natural shades are wanted to represent that company or organization. When looking for a professional to provide a service to you their outward appearance has to do in part with your decision to purchase from them.
So sad, but so true.
Anyone agree or disagree?
Does your hair color matter, locks or not?
I think so.

Girls Vs. Grown Women?---Off Hair Topic

This is a poem of thought, it's open to each persons opinions on each issue.
I got it from my girl Mo, please read it and enlighten me.
Let me know what your thoughts are.
Have any examples that make some points into an exception in your personal case?
Are grown women asking boys to be a man?
Are grown women looking for grown men but acting like girls?
Are the points TRUE or NOT?
I personally think so.

Grown Women:

Girls want to control the man in their life.
Grown women know that if he's truly hers, he doesn't need controlling.

Girls check you for not calling them.
Grown women are too busy to realize you hadn't.

Girls are afraid to be alone.
Grown women revel in it using it as a time for personal growth.

Girls ignore the good guys.
Grown women ignore the bad guys.

Girls make you come home.
Grown women make you want to come home.

Girls leave their schedule wide-open and wait for a guy to call and make plans.
Grown women make their own plans and nicely tell the guy to get in where he fits.

Girls worry about not being pretty and/or good enough for their man.
Grown women know that they are pretty and/or good enough for any man.

Girls try to monopolize all their man's time (i.e., don't want him hanging with his friends).
Grown women realize that a little bit of space makes the 'together time' even more special-and goes to kick it with her own friends.

Girls think a guy crying is weak.
Grown women offer their shoulder and a tissue.

Girls want to be spoiled and 'tell' their man so.
Grown women 'show' him and make him comfortable enough to reciprocate without fear of losing his 'manhood'.

Girls get hurt by one man and make all men pay for it.
Grown women know that was just one man.

Girls fall in love and chase aimlessly after the object of their affection, ignoring all 'signs'.
Grown women know that sometimes the one you love, doesn't always love you back-and they move on, without bitterness.

Girls will read this and get an attitude.
Grown women will read this and pass it on to other Grown women and their male friends.

What parts do you agree or disagree with?

Time and Product Withdrawal

This is our little Superman sending me a kiss to give me the strength I need.
Lately I'm having time issues!
I feel time is passing like molasses dripping down the wall! Will I ever get my sisterlocks done.....could the 28th come any faster? It doesn't feel like it Damm It! Each day when I wake and I have to comb my hair it is really starting to cause me some irritation.
Not only that, I'm starting to already have product withdrawals.
I have one that I know I can no longer use that I LOVE.
Oils, I love hair oils and I put coconut and carrot oil it into my hair during the day sometimes just because it feels good on my scalp. Everything else I can do without like a brush, mousse and "oh the dreaded comb". I can do without these items, no problem.
But the oil is like hair do I stop?
Help me ladies, any suggestions?
How did you stop?

Here I Come.....

Hair before perm
I'm so excited that I could do back flips that I have three weeks left before getting my sisterlocks. Oh yeah here I come, no more combing and brushing, no more buying hair supplies monthly and worrying about the wind, rain or snow rearranging my do. I'm so excited some times I get into the computer just to look at other peoples sisterlocks so I can think, dream of what mines will look like. Is it possible to be addicted to LOOKING at others sisterlocks LOL?
My installation date is 3/28/2008 and I can't wait to get this hair party started. I have brought new earrings and new colored lip gloss too.

Oh yeah 22 more days, I'm counting down again baby.......................
I was told that the thinner your hair the smaller your locks should be to create thickness over time. The thicker your hair the larger they should be to have styling options later without having to much hair to pull back. Also without sitting for four hours or more to get re-tightened. Anyone with small or micro locks experience this? I decided on medium across the entire top crown and large in the back where my hair to very full and thick.
Also what is this debate about leaving the ends of the hair loose and NOT cutting them off? If I have never had a perm then it is not considered to be leaving permed ends it is just leaving my hair loose. Lisa Bonet is a wonderful example of having long flowing healthy locks with loose ends. I likes it and I'm going to rock it,
I don't give a damm!
Any personal opinions on leaving loose ends?
Just 3 weeks left:
I'm rrrrreeeeaaaaddddyyyy!
( I'm singing that loudly by the way :-} ).
