I'm surprised by the traffic this blog has received in spite of the paucity of posts over the past several weeks!
Here are some photos from last week - I was playing around with my camera.
My 'Maryee' Pose
Maryee has a photo of herself on her website where she is holding up her tresses, gazing demurely into the camera - one of my favorite photos on her website!
I'll try to post again before the end of the month.
I found some wonderful sisterlocks video testimonies on Maryee's website that were recorded at a Dallas Sisterlocks gathering. She posted them about two years ago when she had been sisterlocked about 3 years.
I guess it's OK to 're-gift' this one to my readers since it is posted on Google video and had an 'embed' code!
The re-run is worth it!
Go here to check out the original post and all the other wonderful sisterlocks testimonies!

Well, today is the third day after my first retightening with Amba. Y'all know Amba from her blog, I'm sure!
Like Cia, Amba operates her business in a very professional way. She is on time, has a dedicated area in her home for clients and keeps distractions and phone calls to a minimum out of respect for her clients' time!
Great job! Just the right amount of tension and parts well preserved!
No curly ends above - just washed it the very same morning...
...but by day 3 I'm back to my favorite texture with a wavy locked base and curly ends! (braid-out set)
My braid-out is taking a slightly longer time to dry. I'm compensating by braiding and rolling my hair while damp (not soaked) and by sitting under the dryer for an hour or so. It might dry quicker and with less heat if I used hard perm rollers instead of 1/4 inch flexibles, but the flexible rollers are so easy to use and easier to sleep in.
I'll be seeing Amba again at the next Atlanta Sisterlocks meetup and then on August 4rth for my next retightening!
