Reflection of 4.5 Months

Not too much is going on with my hair. For some strange reason I think not posting for a week is way too long. LOL! It's been 3 weeks since my last retightening and I have 3 more weeks to go until my 4th retightening. I call this stage my "lions mane" stage. I can't wait for this winter weather to break so that I can just let my hair airdry.

She Is On-A-Roll

The third grade is the first grade level where they receive actually letter grades on their report cards. Baby girl, and in fact all of the kids have done well this year. We recently went to my little "Minnie-Me" Honor Roll assembly. We are so proud of her, she was so excited about making the honor roll too. I can't wait till the day that she makes Principal's Honor Roll.

Sometimes I think this blog is becomming more and more about her. Here is a picture of her holding her certificate. I even framed it and I am anxiously awaiting to frame more of them as she gets them.

Not Exactly Valentine's Day

I had a fabulous weekend. My husband and I went out to dinner and then we went to a family function. This weekend my mom and dad had my kids. Thank goodness for Grandparents. We didn't do anything out of the norm on Valentine's Day so we made sure we did something this weekend. We had a nice evening with intriguing conversation. What was even better was the food. I can get down when it comes to good food, no salad tonight! My husband can put it away too.

I got all dazzled up for him and rocked the hell out of a freestyle. I got so many compliments about my hair that night. Here are a few more pics. Enjoy

SoFt SpIkEs

I purchased Soft Spikes in celebration on becomming 4 months on lockdown. I also have a twist and hairtie in route, but anywhoo... Big ups to the ladies on lockitup. I was unsure of what product to use on my baby locks. I got a lot of good suggestions. The one that I like most was to just use water. That is exactly what I did. I spritz my dry hair with water and used a little bit of the setting spray that came with my spikes. I ordered a lot. I got four packages of the large. I guess I am anitcipating on when my locks get longer. Here are some pics of my Soft Spikes experience. Enjoy!

3rd Retightenting

I had my third retigtening this past Thursday. My appointments are becomming shorter and shorter. My hair was retightened in 2 hours and 45 minutes. I had no slippage and only new growth was retightened. I haven't B&B in 6 weeks. My hair is really holding up. I love the way my new growth grows in, I love the spirals in my hair.
However, it feels like it is snowing everyday. I get extreme dry scalp in the winter. My hair was flaking all over the place. My consultant told me I can start using the Sisterlocks Moisturizer. I am going to try it, I hope it won't make my hair slip. I put absolutely nothing in my hair, this attributes to my dry scalp. Thank goodness my scalp isn't itchy. I almost got chastised for not using the sisterlocks starter shampoo. But I had explained that the starter shampoo makes my scalp itchy. It made my scalp feel as if it was on FIRE. So then it was understood why I used the Knotty Boy Soap bar. It's not a sisterlocks product, but hey it gets the job done! In my opinion it is way better than that starter stuff! (I hope the sisterlocks police don't arrest me. LOL!)

I had so much to do the day of my retightening so here are some after, after shots from my retightening. Oh yeah, I also got chastised for choping off my little antennas. I like the way they are growing in now, I don't mind them be short, they are growing in thick and healthy. Which is all that matters to me.

Blue, Blue and more Blue

So there is nothing to do on a Saturday afternoon. I am a girly girl, so I had some fun with the makeup. I call this look "Moon Walk" Enjoy!

I am always asked if these are my real eyelashes, and yup they are.

OMG... I Think She Likes It

My parents asked my kids over for the Super Bowl game. I was excited, no kids... just husband and wife time. So I stayed awhile at my parents house after the game and my mom and I did some bonding things like doing her make up and she showed me her new excercise toy (which damn near killed me). LOL! She was asking me if she should grow her hair back, I told her no because the short style she wears is very cute on her face. Then I asked if she is still letting her hair dresser perm her hair. She told me that her hair dresser only puts it on the back and on her side burns. My mom has a very loose curl, my curl isn't as loose as hers. A couple of years ago my moms hair started to thin. It was becuase they were giving her a touch up ever 6 weeks. WTF! Now when I used to perm my hair, I did it every 6 months or once a year and it was a mild formula. My mom hair texture is like a 2B, so basically her hair dresser was just making extra money off of her knowing good and well she had no reason to get a perm. So now she lets them perm her hair sparringly. Thank goodness...

She has finally admitted that she likes my locks. She loves the size of them and she thinks they suit me well. My little brother has started his second set of locks. His first set was so adorable, and he had grown them for 2 years. My mother hated them. He cut them off about a month before I got mine, and he is now starting over. It makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside that she has finally made PEACE with MY HAIR.
