Patience is Everything!!!!

Hi All,

It's me again. I am now at week 6 of being Sisterlocked and still lovin it. I had my first follow-up visit on July 1st. I had a lot of slippage and loose locks, so it took about 5 hrs to get me back up and running again. It wasn't looking bad or anything, just needed some loving attention. That's the great thing about Sisterlocks, you never really have a bad hair day. My consultant and I decided that I needed to start coming about every 2 weeks for now to combat the slippage and loose locs. My patience is really being tested with this process, but I can't complain. Patience is a virtue, right?!?

I finally counted my locs during my last shampoo . . .and the verdict is . . . 371 locs. I thought I had more than that, but that is more than enough! My current challenge besides my slippage and loose locs, is my dry scalp. I want to vigorously shampoo soooo bad, but I'm being creative and doing a lot of "dusting" or "shaking" my dry hair instead. It's working, so I'll stick to it. I have started using my dandruff shampoo (Neutrogena T-gel) for my first wash and my sisterlocks shampoo for my 2nd. So far, so good. My hair is definitely growing and getting fuller. More pics to come at my 2 month anniversary.

Six weeks of class left and seven weeks until graduation . . .YEAH!!!!!! I will also be one of the selected speakers at the ceremony. What an honor! Patience has definitely been a virtue during this process. For those that didn't know, I am in school for Massage Therapy after serving in the Air Force for almost 9 years. It has always been a dream of mine that in 7 weeks becomes a reality. I'm not talkin about any kind of massage here; I will be certified in Swedish, Sports and my favorite, Neuromuscular Therapy. I'll be as good as the best Chiropractor when it comes to fixing postural distorments and giving pain relief. This is life changing stuff! I don't want to just make people "feel good", but I want to contribute to "healing" and "long-term pain relief"; Neuromuscular is the answer, so if you are reading this and in the Atlanta area, holla at me. My business contact info is on the right side of my blog.

In conclusion, I want to say thanks to all of you for your support. I especially want to say thanks to those who inspired me to blog and those who I inspired to blog. KEEP ON KEEPING ON!


If you ever have chest pains that make you feel as if you are having a heart attack and go to the Doctor and find out that nothing is wrong; consider seeing a neuromuscular therapist--It could very well be Pectoralis Muscle Pain!!!!!!

God Bless and Be Encouraged!
