Update just in time for homecoming

I am on a roll with the post today. Any who, it is my alma mater homecoming this weekend, and I decided to get my hair styled in a up do. As you guys know, I love getting my hair styled however, bwcuase of life I have niw been able to have my hair styled as much as I use to. For a while now, I have just been getting my hair retighten every 4 weeks and rocking a free style. So I called one of my favorite locician in the hampton roads area. She is  not, I repeat not a sisterlocks consultant or trainee ( however i have been trying to convince her for years to go the class) she is a license climatologist and she specializes in natural hair, locs, and color.  She do loc retighten. She is very talented and I always refer people to her if they I cannot afford sisterlocks but want traditional locs. Her name is Faith.... I typically come to her for my styles and go to my sisterlocks consultant for my retighten. But enough talking here is my new hairstyle....
Until next time...

Lets talk about that previous post...

So apparently the previous post was never posted. It was from a enlighten that I had back in September or maybe it was August. As I mention, my consultant Gia moved to Hawaii son I was on the search once again for a a consultant. I went to a trainee and she did a wonderful job but then school started for her and she couldn't do retighten anymore.... so I was on the search once again. So went to a trainee on the sisterlocks website and and I went to a woman that was on there. Come to find out, she messed up my hair I sat in her chair for 13 hours for my retighten.... she put grease in my hair unbeknownst to me until I turned around and saw what she was doing. I informed her to stop. Which she did. I try to have a heart and have some kind of compassion for newbies bc at one time all consultants are newbie. But i have never sat that long for a rerighten. Plus I was at week 4 or5. So i shouldnt have to sit that long i know i didnt have that much new growth.But then what made me upset was that three to five days later my sisterlocks looked like I didnt even get them retighten. I was ubsure if she twisted them I dont know what she did. But I did call her twice and I left her a voicemail stating to her how I was u pleased with my hair. To make sure that it was not just me, I went to 2 different consultants to have them chexk out my hair.... and they both said the same thing.  She messed up my hair. Why go to the sisterlocks class to be a consultant have your name on the list all to just not do it the sisterlocks way it was ridiculous. ... it took me 4 washes to get whatever grease she put in my hair. I was soooo pissed. I dont put anything in my hair but water. I wash my hair with the sisterlocks shampoo and thats its. My hair doesn't experience flakes in fact my hair is very shiny. And has lots of body. She never called me back oh course.  But whatev..... I reported her to headquarters.... maybe she needs to tske a refresher course which I dont know why when she just took the class in April so why did you mess up my hair in September....

Fast forward to October... I had to pay another consultant to retighten my hair... she did it correctly. However I was still pissed that I had to turn around and not even 2 weeks later pay someone to do my hair all over again. Parts of my hair needed 2 or 3 rotations.... I knew the consultant wasn't lying because that is why I tried to contact the girl who messed up my hair to see if she could correct her mistake. I could l itterally feel my head and feel and see lots of new growth and it didnt even look like I had anything done to my hair. That's crazy. Smh. Also there were parts where she stopped at the wrong spot. My hair was a mess. I was amd still am ticked off that someone from the website jackie up my hair..... and there are 2 ppl on the website that are located in virginia and in the city of Portsmouth and I wouldn't advise anyone to go to them. Smh....
However my hair is doing fine now.... I HAVE a new consultant that is located in va beach and she did a good job on my hair. I will be going to her until I move bc I plan on moving again in the next 8 months..
Until next time.....

Fresh retighten,Farwell and Hello

On June 23,2014 I celebrated 29 months with my sisterlocks. On July 2nd 2014 I had my last retighten from my consultant Ms.Gia. she is moving to Hawaii for her job. I can't even be upset. I'm happy for her, but a little bummed that she is leaving. I did however meet with a new consultant and I am schedule to gave a retighten with her August 7th. She seems pretty nice. Below is my final retighten with Ms.Gia.

About Two weeks ago was loc appreciation day. I didnt do anything special on that day. But i do love my sisterlocks. I lost a loc... It came out when I was washing my hair. It was my fault I was not washing it correctly.first one in 29th months.

Also happy 4th of July to everyone.Be safe and have fun!

Hair Update

So i went to one of my best friend's graduation over the weekend and decided to get my hair styled which I am very much so aware that I have not done that in a while. Below are pictures of the updo and graduation weekend. Good times were had. I very proud of him. Im next. Lol.

I go in this week for a retighten.  I have a hair goal for myself. As you all may or may not know hair grows on a average of 1/2 inch a month. Seeing that it May my goal is that my hair grows between 3.5-4 inches by my graduation which is in December.  I have changed my earing habit and I have in fact started doing the dr. Ian smith super shred. So far I have been on it for 2 weeks and I have lost 4 lbs and dropped down 2 % in body fat. It would have been more but I messed up when I went to Philly so I am starting that week over again. I have incorporated 2 a days and I work out 5 days a a week. My ultimate goal is to get up to  6-7 days a week.

Now you are probably asking now what does you going on a diet and changing your eating habit have to do with your hair. Well its simple. I have come to the conclusion that how can I say that I am natural and my hair has no chemicals in my hair when I am flooding my body with unhealthy goods. it does not make sense. Now dont get me wrong I love food more than the average person and compared to others I may not be consider overweight but I know I was not living a healthy lifestyle with my eating habits. So I have been back on track and I am proud of myself. One day at a time right... eating healthy will promote not only a leaner and toner body but it will also give me lots of energy and will allow my hair to grow and be shiny. 
Thats its for now. You guys are more tha. Welcome to follow my fitness journey on youtube naturalnikkidst
