Merging My Locks

I started this set of locks kind of small, although I didn't realize it at the time. Since *Sisterlocks(tm) have become so popular in recent years my locks have been confused with them a time or two. I was shocked. Mostly because SLs are so small, although in recently years I have noticed them increasing in size. Anyhoo, I was watching Bob Marley videos, reading about him, etc. when I realized how beautiful his locks were. I was mesmerized. I can't let my locks just grow freely can I? Well, I could have, but I didn't. I decided to marry them. Yep I made my locks larger. I joined two or three together where I felt it was appropriate. I did this by utilizing the latching technique. I like them much more now. They feel much stronger than before. I am now waiting for some of the ones in the front to grow so that I can begin to palmroll again. I used to latch, but I like the freedom of palmrolling. With palmrolling I can have that neat look when I need it, but I can be all organic looking when I want to. Either way I love my locks more than ever.

My husband told me that I get more beautiful the longer my hair gets. I don't know why it meant so much...maybe it was the sweetness and sincerity of it, but it went to the soul depth. Now, understand that my husband constantly compliments everything about me, so I can't testify to having a husband that doesn't express love to me. That one just came from a sacred place. Maybe because I believe hair and the head to be sacred.
Anyway, just thought I'd share.
*you know you have to put the "tm" with the name or you may be sued. LOL...no seriously.
