Month 1!

I cannot believe it has been a month already. Some of the things I have experienced this month have been quite different. My hair is still changing. I have a lot of itch going on, but not as much as when I first started. I love being able to just put water on my hair and just go. I went to see my locktician on Wednesday because a lot of my locks at the top slipped (because it is permed, dumb decision when i wanted a weave to look good back in it doesn't want to leave :( ) and she told me I may be putting too much water on them. It is killing me that I cannot put anything on them, because they feel dry at times. I don't know, but I trust her and she obviously knows what she is doing so I'm all ears. I keep driving my sister crazy asking her should I wear them for everyone to see. Lol. She likes them, and says I shouldn't be scared of how I will be received, because as long as I love them what else matters right? Every time I go to my moms house he immediately starts to fiddle around in my hair. She likes them and can't believe how long they actually are (my hair shrinks up a lot unless its straightened which i refuse to do, absolutely refuse to use curlers, I feel they take away from my babies) I don't know if this has happened to anyone else but I was tripping out for a while, thinking what did I do? I really paid this much money to get my hair like this? Then I started having these weird dreams that someone had permed my hair and I got really frantic because I was trying to get locks and i just knew this perm wouldn't grow up. I have had that dream at least twice. smh. I just wake up glad that it was a dream and run and look and mirror and smile at my babies. I guess you can in a sense call it postpartum anxiety. I'm definitely learning a lot of patience that's for sure. I think a lot about them and wonder how they will look next month at 6 months and at a year. But only time will tell. Well that's it for today. Ttyl8r! I'm so excited to watch them mature... *_*

My Reasoning...

I think maybe I should go ahead and just get it all out. I'm saying this so that everyone can understand my reasoning for getting sisterlocks. I have been asked this question over a hundred times in the past three weeks and it more than just a hairdo for me. I used to be the girl the changed her hair every five minutes since about 5th grade. Growing up I was always teased for having short hair. As I got older I became accustomed to doing my own hair and it has been that way ever since. I may have spent in excess of $30,000 dollars on my hair. After seeing a girl with sisterlocks last year I fell in love. I knew I had to grow that perm out!
Anyway thats that. Will I be cutting them out, naw. Why would I do that. This is a dedication for me. At first I was worried if they would grow, but I see that is the least of my worries now. I will posting more pics of some of the things I have been doing with my babies. I can feel them starting to change. Last night I did a small bantu knot with my babies and I have some small curls that didn't turn out half bad. I was washing my hair more frequently than I should have but that was because the itch was soo unbearable! Since doing an ACV rinse I feel better. Its not that bad anymore. Today is the first day I wore my babies to work without having them covered. I feel great. Its the real me and I really love it! Let me know what you guys think! Ciao!
