30th Birthday Dinner



What happened to the 20's. I'm grown for real now! Time surely does fly. This is from my 30th birthday dinner. Shout out to all my Piscean brothers and sisters.

I've been wearing my locks for a year and a half. This has been one of the best experiences. I love it when people are in a state of awe when I tell them that it is ALL real!!! That is what Sisterlocks are about....your real and natural hair:-) Posted by Picasa

I asked the same question when I hit 40. The 30's were a blur.

Love your blog and your Sisterlocks! I think the thirties are when things start crack-a-lackin'. The only thing I miss about my twenties is my waistline!

I just want to say that your hair is absolutely stunning! It is wonderful to see the different stages of your hair. It went from microbraids to a little dull loc look and then with this last picture, a complete explosion of beautiful healthy shiny locs.

I was just wondering if you had any shrinkage because mine has retreated to about 5 inches from 10 to 11 inches.

Also, just looking at the coloring, it seems that your hair went into supergrow mode. If you hadn't colored your hair since March 21, 2005 and the most recent picture is reflecting the new growth since that color was put in, I need to do what you are doing, lol!

FABULOUS!!!

Hi Ginger,

First let me say thanks for the compliment. I wash it every week with black soap. I am finally at the stage where I can take a shower without the cap! I get it retightened between 5-6 weeks. I just recently started going to a new consultant (Dee) here in Atlanta and she uses the Sisterlock tool.
