Sisterlocks for 2010!

Since we are at the close of the year I know my sisterlocks are thinking about the past and looking forward for the future. We all do deep contemplation at the end of the year. What goals we accomplished, what resolutions we broke and what we promise to do for the new year.

I think a great start to for the new year would be embracing who you are, being more authentic, telling people what you truly feeling and making decisions based on what makes YOU happy. That is better than any Christmas gift you could recieve or give. Being ture to yourself means caring a little more about your total well-being. It means facing the fear of being unpopular or being alone for a while.

If you hate yourself you cansurely love yourself as they both have the same level of intensity and emotion. You live long enough and you can bet you will experience both within yourself or someone you care about. This is life ladies.

Your hair is an expression of indivduality and culture, It can reflect art or conservativeness, your is how you communicate your mood and level of care and even hyigene.

what will you do with this year that's fast approaching, plan now to love yourself more for the coming year, I know I will.

Sisterhood of Sisterlocks

There is something really satisfiying about wearing natural hair. I feel more relaxed and at peace with myself. Mre like I am honoring myself and my parents for making me physically who I am. It is funny to see people's reactions as they look at me when Im out and about, but I pay particular attention to how the young girls look at me. Some look at me with curiosity, some with a little fear, then some with awe. Women we are a culture within a culture. The things we capable of doing( bringing life into the world) has a level of magic and mystery we have yet to understand ourselves.
Degredation and humiliation from men crowds our history and has currupted our DNA. We feel alone, ashamed of breasts, over hips, our hair. There are rites of passage in Africa were young girls are put into cages when they start there menstration and are only freed after years of (purging the bad spirits.

I oten contemplate my own earlier feelings about my self image. Why did I feel so ugly. Why did I feel I belonged "No Where". Why did my so-called freinds make fun of my skin and full lips when they possess only hair-like differences to me.

Women are afraid to be who they are (if they are honest) because of MEN!

I haven't met a woman yet who has hesitated about getting sisterlocks for any other reason than she is afraid that she will look "Ugly" to her mate, spouse etc..

We have to create real Sisterhood bonds where we are more concerned for the heath and vitality of US than anything else. A mother's love is the first love that we all experience and mothers give us the first feelings of hate, shame, and low self esteem.

Let's unite to strenghthen our bonds with each other and the world.

How to Grow Hair

Head massages are great for increasing blood to the hair follicle. It blood that causes hair to grow. Light pressure on the head for a few minutes a day is good. And standing on your head stimulates hair growth too, again (blood supply increase). Essential oils like anise, basil, cinnomin are good for stimulating blood flow too.
