Failed at Colouring my locks

I tried to dye my locks plum brown and failed miserably. The good thing about this misadventure was that my hair remained more or less the same colour. I now have some faint reddish highlights that are only visible when the sun hits my locks. I want to give it another shot but I have to do some research first. I am pretty sure I wont be able to attempt colouring again for quite some time. Maybe next time I will go to a professional depending on how confident I feel. Anyway was playing around with he camera and took some more pics of my locks. I am sure the colour isn't visible so dont even look for it. Enjoy!

Two Year Lockaversary Pics

I am so proud of myself for actually arriving at this two year mark in my journey. I only wish that I can continue along in much the same way.Over the two year period I have done a few styles, but mostly left my hair alone to do its own thing.

The journey continues and I will try my best to keep my blog as updated as possible. Below are my two year celebratory pics:

Pictures from my Sisterlocks Journey so far

The Promised Pictures Of My Sisterlocks Journey So Far

Saturday, June 19, 2010

Better Late Than Never

I have always wanted to blog about my sisterlocks but just never got around to it. Now finally, here I am. I have been sisterlocked for 23 months. It has been an interesting Journey so far.

I have learned things about my hair and black hair in general. It has mostly been a positive experience , with a few exceptions. Caribbean people still find it difficult to embrace their true selves. I have been to church and heard the Pastor say some pretty degrading things about locked hair. It was strange sitting there in the audience listening to it. You would think that a man of God would preach Bible truths and not fallacy based on his personal opinion and biasness. I bet he would cringe if he knew that some members of his congregation asked me about my locks after church and how they could get it done too.It is a classic case of putting down what you know nothing about. Locks have been around for hundreds of years and were worn by people from many different races and creeds.

Ok, ok I will stop being so passionate for now, since this is only my first blog post. Tomorrow I will post some pics of my journey since I got my sisterlocks installed in July 2008.
