529 more or less
On Thursday, January 11th, I went to the movies to see Dreamgirls, and it was fantastic. So I have a shot of me made up and dressed to have fun and let me SL’s make their debut. And it was wonderful. No negative comments. Even had a man compliment my eyes. What does that have to do with my hair? Well, since I stop wearing my kinky twists they seem to be brighter from the compliments I have received. (Picture in Grey sweater)
On MLK day I decided to wash my hair for the first time. Um, that was an unexpected chore. It literally took me from 10:30 am until 5:00 pm to finish my hair. There has gotta be a better way. I bundled my hair in 26 bundles. Due to my dry and flaky scalp I had to wash the individual bundles (well the scalp of the bundles) first w/Nizoral then rinse, rinse and rinse. That was 2 hours. Then wash my hair with the Sisterlocks® starter shampoo then rinse, rinse and rinse. Then I had to count my individual locks and the grand total is :::drumroll please::: 529 give or take some. I was watching TV and was just plain tired at that point. I have a picture of the final product after I separated and counted them. (Picture w/purple tank)
Now, the picture with me in the black is from last night after book club meeting. We discussed Knockin’ Boots by Tracy Price-Thompson and enjoyed chili and array of delicacies as we talked about the book and our upcoming literary event.
I really do love my hair and will have some one take some pictures of my hair so you can see up close how they are flourishing. I have my first retightening on January 26th, which means I must wash my hair Thursday. I just hope it doesn’t take all night because I gotta go to work!
