The 7 Year Itch….
Since committing to the idea of getting Sisterlocks™ I have been totally obsessed with my hair. My hair is over 20 inches long and I plan to save 6-8 inches for installation. September 2009 marks the 7th year anniversary of my traditional locs. So why not make this anniversary count with a cut? I recruited an accessory to the event…..my sister Ree and a photographer my nephew Kam. We cut about 12 inches. I did the first cut so that Ree would not be to blame for any length mistakes. The end result?
After the big chop, I counted about 110 locs. I’m excited because that number will probably quadruple when I get my Sisterlocks™ installed. September will the month of new growth. I have about 2-3 inches of new growth now. One step closer! (Some shots were just for giggles!)
