Shampooing Sisterlocks

Phyllis the Videolocktician has uploaded another wonderful video.

I must suggest, however, that you discuss any products mentions with your consultant. I've been sisterlocked for 7 months and still use the starter shampoo. Remember that if you are a newbie, you must bind your hair before washing.

I am partial to diluting shampoo in an industrial spray bottle for ease of application, but Phyllis just slathers it on!

Sisterlocked and other Natural Sistahs on the Study Tour of Ancient Kemet

We're back! Safe and sound on Terra firma after an 11 hour flight from Cairo to New York City. Before every Egypt Air flight, a prayer for safe travel in Arabic is played. I didn't understand what was said, but was happy to know everyone was on one accord and affirming for our safe arrival!

What a life altering experience! Our examination of the tombs and temples of Egypt with an emphasis on the Afrikan origin of the concepts and stories that we find in the 3 major western religions was fascinating. I am likely to blog more than once about what we did, where we went, what we saw and what we learned!

But today, I want to introduce you to some of my new friends who shared in this great adventure with us - wonderful, beautiful sisters and a few handsome brothers too!

Naomi (weave extension - Cairo Airport)

Robert (palm-rolled traditional locs - alabaster factory in Luxor)

Mikey (short fade - Tomb of the Nobles in Aswan)

Ben (uncultivated traditional locs - cruising under the Aswan Bridge - sorry for the blur!)

Sharon S. (sisterlocked 2 years - the Giza Plateau)
Sharon H. (palm-rolled traditional locs - the Great Pyramid at Giza)
Diane (Kinky twist extensions - the 'New Ark' of Pharoah Khufu)
Michelle (two strand twists - on the Giza Plateau)

Me, in Cairo, at the Conrad Hotel overlooking the Nile River!

Finally, at Dashur, with Dr. Ray Hagins who is sporting his signature "skinny" under his cap.

Go to http://www.wblr.com/ and create an account to view more photos of this years tour. Plans for the 2009 trip are already underway!

More to come!

Kemet, here we come!

Only 4 days left before we go on a study tour of ancient Kemet! I got my 7th retightening yesterday. Amba was in a groove. She had a rhythm going!

On Amba's front porch

These two times that she has done my hair, I have helped her discover some new functionality of the hydraulic chair that she bought from Cia before Cia (Kinky Awakening) move back to her beloved Panama!

Last month, we figured out how to recline the chair. Yesterday, we figured out how to raise the headrest.

Retightened and Ready for our pilgrimage

Mike and I are going on the New Mind Study Tour of Egypt for about two weeks with Dr. Ray Hagins. In fact, I am blogging from New York now. We leave tonight from JFK!

"Study Tour" makes it sound more like school and less like fun, but I have a sneaking suspicion that we are going to have a fascinating and fun time. My friend, Naomi (see "Young Physician of the Year" post), and another friend, Albert, will be going as well.

I saw Wendy (see the "A New Sisterlocks Newbie" post) before I left Georgia and she asked me, "When are you going to update that blog!" Well, I've been rather lax this summer with regard to posting and since I'll be away most of August, I can't imagine blogging more than 2 or 3 times this month...but I hope to get revved up in the Fall.

Retightening just completed

Amba tells me that I have some good entangling going on and suprisingly little bunching where my new growth meets my permed ends. She says that I can likely stop binding my hair to wash it by next month. I might be able to use the sisterlocks moisture treatment by Winter without fear of excessive slippage.

Wish us safe passage! A travel photo post will likely follow :o)
