One year AFTER the Sisterlocks Haircut

So, you've seen my video... now, what's holding YOU back about making your personal Sisterlocks decisions?? You might ask, WHAT SISTERLOCKS DECISIONS do I even have? 
Well, are you vacillating over questions with regard to your natural hair in general? to the present condition of your Sisterlocks today? or, to scheduling a Sisterlocks install appointment? How about the following questions: Can I afford Sisterlocks upkeep? (Good question... if you are NOT a DIYer)How much do I care about what other people think about me?Are you ready to BE-U-TIFUL*, shameless and fearless? (DAILY BAEZ's word...I like it!)Should I take the plunge into Sisterlocks in stages? No BIG CHOP just yet...just loc the new growth? Are am damaging my Sisterlocks by NOT cutting them?Can I resist loc envy and stay the course whatever my stage in the process? You'll note that the motivating crux of all these questions is your MINDSET. Your mindset mediated by your own sense of identity, worth, and abi…

Fixx Argan Oil Shampoo on Sisterlocks

It's after Labor Day 2014, y'all...the official END of SUMMER.

I have had a TREMENDOUS SUMMER 2014 that included a "magical" family trip to Disney World that culminated with our family reunion also in Orlando. Next, I visited Seattle, WA on a business trip that was a rich learning experience where I met some truly creative and passionate educators. Then, I traveled to North Carolina for my first Market America International Convention (#MAIC2014) where my belief in my unFranchise business was built and my knowledge expanded to improve my entrepreneurial endeavors.

I recently broke the seal on one of my Market America haircare products: Fixx Argan Oil Shampoo. The shampoo is clear (a plus for lock'd hair); it effectively cleaned my scalp, yet left my hair soft and not stripped of its moisture.   
I will be certain to reorder this product!! An 8 oz bottle of Fixx Argan Oil Shampoo retails at my Shop.com website for $19.95.

NovaSure: Green Diva NO MORE

September 2005, I became a Green-Diva... 
I became a DivaCup user as a more eco-friendly, sanitary, and HEALTHY feminine hygiene solution to tampon and pad use. During my 9 years of DiveCup use, I replaced my DivaCup once after ruining its integrity by improper cleaning. (I scrubbed it creating a tear.)

Today, I lay my DivaCup to rest in pieces...(RIP --see what I did there...heHe) The manufacturer asks that users dispose of their DivaCups by thoroughly washing the cup, cutting it up into smaller pieces, and then disposing it to the trash.

Why? What has changed ...you might ask? CHANGE is a good word... let's go with that. Well, it seems that at 46 years old my body went into a pre-menopausal stage that manifested itself in irregular menstrual cycles. When it did show, if it did at all, it was excessive lasting for months at a time... I found that I NEEDED to wear black pants or skirts just to camouflage any overflow to my clothes. Yeah, it was enough already. I was tired and was …

#MAIC2014... I've GOT UnFranchise DNA!

I am a proud Market America UnFranchise business owner. VERY PROUD, in fact, being just back from #MAIC2014.  I'm proud because I have FINALLY gotten involved with a system that makes complete sense to me on spiritual, intellectual, economic, and community levels.  The limitations of becoming successful with Market America are solely that of the individual's lack of effort to: engage in result producing activities; invest in his/her training; continue to learn; execute the plan, and renew one's mind and behavior. COLLABORATION is key in these business opportunity. I'm all about that-- my dissertation research focus is COLLABORATION.

These are my people-- MY maBUSINESS PARTNERS! I love them ALL! #maFamilyLove

Sisterlocks with Copper Highlights

On July 18, 2014...





Kandi Manning was careful not to have my request for Copper highlights result in a color too bright for my skin tone. So my while my highlights are subtle against my naturally dark hair, the copper highlights are yet noticeable throughout my Sisterlocks... and I LOVE IT!!
