Introducing…….


Whew! After 17.5 hours, 7 movies, and countless conversations and laughs, my sisterlock babies are finally here! My locs were installed on October 23, 2009 at about 11:45pm. My consultant Olohimai was a solider along with her sister helping from time to time because she made it happen in one day! I had to give myself some mental pep talks around the 10th hour. But I was a G about it, because I knew what I was doing it for. One of the 7 habits of highly effective people is to “begin with an end in mind.” I had to tap into that resource to make it through this process. Just think, retightenings will be nothing compared to installation. I don’t have an official count yet, but my consultant estimated more than 500. I won’t be satisfied until they have been counted so whoever I see this weekend (my sisters) better be ready to help. (LOL)

Overall, I am very satisfied with the initial look. I am making frequent stops in the mirror just to examine them. I am not as scalpy as I thought I would be. My test locs filled in pretty quickly in the 3 weeks that I had them so I am hopeful the rest of the girls will do the same. I do have some volume too, but I may try to put some curl to them today. I may do my first wash in one week to assist with the fill in process. Thanks for all the support that motivated me to get to this day. Peace and Blessings!
