I am happy to be back online again with my new site called Comb My Hair.com. It's a work in progress but my goal is to make it a great resource center for natural especially Sisterlocks. I am going to add phots as I go along and I will continue to update you guys on the instructional videos which I am really excited about. I am doing a hair show this weekend at the Jacob Javitz center in new York. I am assisting world renown hairstylist Torain, the orginator of the "hair fusion technique". The show will be mostly white people but I am still excited about it. This will be the first time I conduct classes at a show. My hubby will be filming so I should have some great shots for you guys to view. I also have some celebrity stylist interviews that I will post very soon.
I wanted to get the perspectives of industry leaders in what they feel is nessescary to become an accomplished "natural hair stylist". The interviews where enlightening and eyeopening. You'll be surprised at what they think about becoming licensed and what it really takes to become a celebrity hair stylist.
I want all new hair stylist to get off on the right foot, to start with good habits and good business skills. They your profession seriously because we are no longer going to be accept mediocre status. What we do takes skill, patience and love. Education is very important and for a long time I thought I knew it all. Big Mistake! there is always something new to learn. Something that will make you work faster, neater, better.

I am a little sad today. I guess it's because I realize my first born is going up. She looks stunning in her Sisterlocks and it gives be great pride to know that she loves herself and her natural hair. I can only hope that when she reaches adulthood she doesn't throw all our values out the window. She tells me, "Mommy, I am so pretty and my hair looks good!" At 15 years old, she has great self esteem more than I had at her age. I feel like crying because I know that sisterlocks really was a big part of that. Honestly, I had to wrestle with about Sisterlocks. She liked the style but her friends were all permed and she didn't want to feel "different". I explained how it grows the hair healthy and strong, naturally. She knew she could do different styles with Sisterlocks, so that wasn't an issue. Ironically, the biggest issue was the belittling from family and friends (Black Folks). I have somethings to say about that too, but I'll leave it for the next post. In the mean time, I have encouraged my daughter to start a network for teens with Sisterlocks. Its important for them to hold each other up through the process, shows pics of hot styles and so on. If you have a teen with sisterlocks or natural hair, we invite you to send pics and comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
