Hey Healthy Lockers!

To make a long story short…

Free Shipping For the next 72 hours on All Accessories and Shampoo Bars.  This includes loc ties, ear abstracts, loc jewelry, dvds and again – shampoo bars.  Sorry gang.  No mists and no oils are included in the free shipping promotion.  I’m still replenishing from the last sale.  If you include mists or oils, shipping will be calculated based on the mists and oils and not any of the other items.

Here’s the long story…

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I love the colors, the textures, my jeans, my wraps, big sweaters, the crisp weather and best of all my lovely locs as they blow in the wind.  But what I absolutely love best about my locs, is I still get compliments just about everywhere I go…from how great they look, to how wonderful they smell, to

how soft they feel, to the beautiful adornments that I wear in them.  I’ve had my locs for over 14 years now and I never tire of them.  Strangers are intrigued when I share with them how long I’ve been growing them and that my loc jewelry has been in my hair for many many years.

October has always been a month that brings new ideas, life changes and fresh creativity for me.  27 years ago, I began my law enforcement career in October.  6 years later, in October, I got married.  Two years after that, I was a new mother – again in October.  And now retired, doing this hair thing and making products, videos, jewelry etc, I’ve finally accepted the

fact that I am blessed with the gift of creativity and a business acumen and personality that allows me to share it with others.  I can’t count how many times I have stepped away from my work, stared at it in amazement and said, “I can’t believe I just made that!”

I never went to professional school for hair.  I didn’t grow up with artist tools and craft kits.  Heck, I was a tomboy who participated and excelled in sports.  Even today I prefer ESPN, women’s rugby or a good true crime show over Atlanta Housewives and Scandal.  It was a rare occasion to see me with a doll.  No particular crafting skills were passed down to me from my mother or grandmother.  They were busy working long hard hours providing a roof over our heads and food on the table.  But yet, I bend and manipulate wire, that turn into the most interesting earrings and jewelry.  I create shampoo bars that people would rather look at instead of use, and I’ve learned how to create an income from the things I absolutely love to make and do.   My goodness – I learned how to make the earrings and the shampoo bars within the last year!

I am blessed and I’m truly appreciative of all of you.  Thank you for trusting enough to try my products, referring them to others and returning again and again to purchase them.  I am forever grateful.

Since October is my special month and I’m feeling all warm and fuzzy now (lol), Free Shipping on all accessories and shampoo bars for the next 72 hours!  No codes needed.  Remember… shipping will be calculated only if you include mists or oils with your order.  The free shipping is only for loc ties, loc jewelry, ear abstracts, dvds and shampoo bars.

I Love My Locs - T-shirt

I Love My Locs! Limited Edition T-shirt

Hey Healthy Lockers!

If I had a penny for every time one of my clients said, “I Love My Locs!”, I probably wouldn’t have to do hair anymore…LOL!

I love it when I find things that really speak to me that help represent myself to the world without necessarily opening up my mouth.  Well this t-shirt does it for me and I know that it will do it for you!  I designed it and It’s a limited edition.   I’m only having 50 made.  So when they’re gone – they’re gone.  Several of my clients have already placed their orders.

This is how it works:  When you click on the below link, it will take you to my campaign page at TeeSpring.com.  You’ll place your order via Paypal or credit card.  I have 7 days for you healthy lockers to place your orders totaling 50 shirts.  Once that 50 t-shirt limit is reached,  the company will charge your PayPal account or your credit card and the t-shirts will go into production.  You’ll have your limited edition t-shirt within 2 weeks shipped directly from TeeSprings.  Once you click the link, you’ll be guided through the simple order process and can get more info.  NOTE:  If we don’t reach the goal of 50 shirts, then your paypal account or credit card will never be charged and the t-shirts won’t be manufactured.

If this campaign proves successful, then I’ll design more t-shirts and make them available.  If I don’t reach the campaign goal of 50 t-shirts, then I’ll just do this on a much smaller scale for my clients.  It’s great that I get to test my creations with you! Thanks!

As always, if you have suggestions or comments on a t-shirt design, or other styles of t-shirts (like long sleeves or hoodies) please leave your comments by clicking the “Leave your comment” link at the top right of this post.  Let me know what you think!

Pictures Of The Locking Process

Hi Gang,

I’m testing another broadcasting system.  I like it, but not sure, at this point, if I can set up a scheduling system like the first one.  I get a chance to answer a few email questions that I didn’t have time to address during last week’s live broadcast and show you pictures of the versatility of the Springlocks.

There’s also great pictures of Shannon showing you the different stages of the locking process.  The video is about 18 minutes.  check it out below.  To see REPLAYS of other live broadcasts click here.

Installing New Sisterlocks – A Video Journey

 
 

Hey Gang…Great Video Below!

I’m going to enjoy sharing this post with you.  You’re about to meet one of my newest Sisterlocks client, Felecia.  Felecia, a very attractive woman, has been plagued with pre-mature graying of her hair since she could remember.  Because of it, the people who don’t know her assume that she is much older than she actually is.  And when going to a salon to get her hair done, they would always give her, “old fashion” styles.  Felecia shared with me that she has always permed and dyed her hair and was a very regular customer at the traditional beauty salons.  So like most of us prior to locking, Felecia had a regular routine of perming and coloring her hair, which translates into many hours in the salon, dry damaged hair and lots of money spent on a style that’s only going to last until the next humid or rainy day.  Permanent black dye was the only dye that would give complete coverage of her gray, but as her gray hair grew in, Felecia says that within a week and a half, you could see the conspicuous line of demarcation, which was literally “white going to black”.    Felecia, who works in a professional office atmosphere and who is very active in her church, chuckles as she recalls how her hair looked and was perceived when she was not only growing out her perm, but also growing out of her black dye.  She literally had black hair on top of a halo of white new growth, which she confidently wore in a straight afro. (Interesting.  I wish I had a picture of that.)  Also, as we get older, we desire to take better care of ourselves and Felecia realized that all of that chemical processing so often, needed to stop.

  It’s funny when sisters decide that they’ve finally had enough hair drama.  For most of us, once you decide to go natural, you become very determined about your hair and how you will deal with “non-naturals”.  People closest to you can’t understand for the life of them why anyone would come out in public with their hair like this…

 

 

Felicia before Sisterlocks Installation I have to give it to Felecia.  She did her homework and actually interviewed two Sisterlocks consultants before finding me on YouTube.  On the day of her consultation, she rang my door bell, and as I opened the front door, I was greeted by THREE people –  Felecia and her two adult, natural-haired daughters.  The younger of the two had natural twists, which she maintained herself and she was just as excited as her mother.  The older one, however, who was more guarded and serious, had a head full of beautiful thick traditional locs that cascaded down her back.  She had been growing them for over 8 years.  During the actual consultation that lasted approximately 3 hours, they peppered me with lots of great questions in between the many questions that I had for Felecia along with watching videos, viewing pictures and asking her about her current hair regimen and her lifestyle. 

By the end of the consultation, everyone was relaxed and confident that they had received thorough and accurate info about locked hair and Sisterlocks.  It was during this time that I turned to the eldest daughter, smiled and asked, “Did I pass your test?”  They all chuckled and agreed that I knew my craft and admitted they wanted to make sure that Felecia (their mother) wasn’t going to be talked into anything and that the person installing her Sisterlocks knew what she was doing – we’ve all heard of the horror stories. 

That was funny to me and I occasionally tease Felecia how she came to her consultation with her “posse” and “both barrels loaded”.  But at the same time, I had to convey and re-iterate to Felecia that her locking process would definitely be challenging because of the smooth and straight texture of her hair.  She would probably experience a lot of slippage, plus she still had a few inches on top that were permed that she wasn’t ready to get rid of.  All my experience with gray hair confirms that gray hair has a mind of its own and will almost always work itself outside of the loc.  So I really wanted to prepare her for whatever technique she chose for locking.  Her process would be a lot longer.  Felecia’s hair won’t even resemble locs until close to 2 years in.  It will look more like a bushy afro until then.

 I will continue to document Felecia’s journey, so visit often.  I love the challenging heads.  You learn a lot from them.  Enjoy the video and wishing everyone a great hair day! 

After you watch this video, check out Felecia’s updated video and see what her Sisterlocks look like after 4 1/2 months!
