These are pics of my locs for the past few months....I have been so busy, I decided to just wash, seperate the roots, no twisting letting it go...what I learned is to allow my hair to do its thing, and the rootbed is getting thicker...now i dont mind the unkept look so much...it was driving me up a wall. I notice more locs that has the little afro growing underneath, I felt like I could never do that...well not having the time to tend to my hair the way I would like let me know,I could and I did.....LOL One day, I noticed the locs in the back were growing together at the roots....Omg, I had to cut some loose. Right now I am noticing growth!!!!! pony tails finally!!! The product I am using now is PARNEVU T-TREE SCALP OIL..... I put a few drops in water and spritz my hair and scalp.....no itches!!!! I have combined a few locs to make the rootbed stronger for the growth, my locs seems to be growing faster than ever. maybe cause I am not watching, keeping them clean and letting them do their own thing....low maintance works better seems like....

My Grandbaby is almost here....we have 4 more days!!!!!! I am so nervous and excited...The doc visits have been great...She is so big...hard to walk now....I try to keep my mind positive...not thinking scary thoughts....Remember I said this family is unique???? Well both parents are totally blind...My daughter lost her sight when she was 19 years old due to a stroke (she is 23 now)..(docs dont know why) she had a blood clot at the base of her brain....I remember her thinking she wasnt going to make it...I crawled in the bed with her....I told her dying was not an option...she was 1 month shy of finishing cosmos school. Beautiful healthy young woman. She met her husband in the school for the blind...married a year ago, and now they are expecting their first child. How are they going to raise a child blind? Can they handle it? You would be surprise how the human heart and mind survives and thrives...The baby doesnt know her parents are blind, they will adapt. Yes they can with a little assistance from family. Alana will thrive under the watchful eyes of many...I am BIG MAMA. Every southern family has one......LOL

Alana Joi....This is my first grandchild...she will be born hopefully on April 19,2006. I am so excited. So you see I am really busy trying to keep the parents calm....The mother is my daughter. This a very unique family...I am so happy she will know how to care for her natural hair...I am writing about caring for locs and natural hair. My personal experiences and hair recipes and advice I recieved...Some folks leave family recipes for sweet potatoe pie (my favorite). I feel like this is important because, we as AA, havent been taught by our ancesters, how to care for our natural hair. We are told that our hair is ugly, nappy and need to be tame with chemicals. We are not taught that we have a natural beauty. Our black skin is beautiful, our kinky,nappy,coily,untame hair is beautiful....I was told that her name Alana means beautiful....This is my legacy to my grandchildren. Starting with her. Each son and daughter will get a copy of my writings and pictures of how their Bigmama take care of her locs. I am so happy and overjoyed. This is the start of a NAPPY NATION!

THINK SPRING!!!!!
Hats off......time to experiment with new do's...I am not into funky styles. I am moderate in taste. I like pizzazz but nothing shocking.

I love this time of the year....Seems like things are coming back to life...I can wash and go with my locks... locing my hair was the best decision for me. I have no second thoughts....2 full years already!
