9 Months

Tuesday, December 15, 2009

thinking about my future...

I'm learning to pray for my husband even now. For his strength, for his purpose, for his protection, guidance, for his love for the Father, for his love for me. For him to be spiritually filled, exceedingly glad and ready to pour into the nations with me as I know he is doing the same for me. I'm learning to expand myself, embracing obstacles and phases that I did not see coming. I'm learning to accept the curve balls that have been and are destined to be thrown my way. I'm learning to gain knowledge and search for understanding even in a doubtful state of mind. I'm learning to trust in God more now than ever when everything in life is going well. I'm learning what it takes to be me, a woman, a daughter, a sister, a soror, a classmate, a Christian. I'm learning to be satisfied as I wait on what the Father has for me but most importantly I'm learning how to be the person God has called me to be.
Whats my redemption? Emancipationg from ignorance and an acceptance of self.

10 year old Sisterlocks vs my 9 months

Yesterday I met this young lady who had a head full of beautiful 10 year old locks. I was sooooo excited to see her and clearly walked up to her and asked if I could get a good look at her locks and so the conversation began. If I bump into her again I'll be sure to take pictures.

In other news I've been so busy with school and finals that I guess I've kinda neglected my blog I dunno, maybe. But my locks are doing progressively well. I've mainly been doing the braid out which is surprising because most of you who follow my blog know its not a style that my hair took to at first but now it looks pretty good with it. It still doesn't last longer than a day though neither do my curls even though I have not done any in a very long time. Its growing, slowly now a days but growing.
9 months and I'm still loving my Sisterlocks even with all its quirks.

9 Months

Hello all, on Friday I will be 9 months locked. This is where my hair is right now:
1. Back is locked
2. Middle just about locked
3. Front fighting it but on its way to being locked.
4. Reti every 3 weeks except this go around I've been busy with school and Thanksgiving so I had to push it back and for some strange reason my back has not grown as much this cycle. (maybe due to my rinse who knows)
5. I can get my hair into two piggy tails a style I liked to have fun with when I was a loose natural.
6. I have had to start putting Fantasia oil in my hair every now and again because it feels and looks so dry.
7. I rarely do water spritz anymore it actually makes my hair misbehave and dry out unlike when I was a younger newbie.
8. I try not to style as much so I don't stress my hair out but I kinda have been forced into it because its not behaving at this stage.
9. My hair seems healthy and strong although I went through a shedding phase all of month 7 and part of month 8. Turns out I just needed a good conditioning which I didn't want to do because my hair in the front was still unravelling. It didn't make the front any worse so whatever and my hair stopped shedding afterwards.
10. Using a rinse was a waste of my time all it did was make my hair dry.
11. Since month 7 I have been having the craziest itchy scalp which I did not used to have at all along with dry scalp.
12. I still love my locks

Looking forward to:

1. Coloring my hair with Lush Henna Caca Rouge-red or Manna?-----the chestnut one lol. I've looked up the reviews and I've look at a couple results on youtube and I like what I see. Plus from various blogs that seems to be the way to go as far as color with conditioning. Especially since I know from previous experience that my hair does not do well with permanent color.
I'm shooting for the middle of January before my second quarter of school starts but only if the front of my hair is locked because this method is said to really soften the hair. If not then I Will probably wait until about March for my 1 year. ( wow I cant believe how close it is)

2. I can't wait until my hair is long enough to go into a ponytail I'm sooooo ready to just throw it up and go.
3. Going to a consultant in January to get a good shampoo and reti and maybe a style, maaaaybe... its been a while ya'll.
4. being able to wash with regular shampoos the way I want to and to use conditioner.
5. Being able to spritz my hair again and let it air dry without it looking and feeling crazy.
6. My hair settling enough so that this build up goes away. Another locker maid a good point to me, she said that when her (traditional) locks were young she would get build up on a few of hers too no mater what she did but once they locked and fell it went away on its own. She said its probably just what that part of my hair has to go through in order to lock and once it does the buildup will go away. So I figured I would just stop worrying about it as long as it does really go anywhere that's too noticeable.
I have not really been taking any pictures lately I have been so Busy but I will try to take a few to post. But for the most part my hair looks the same at lease to me it does anyway.
