Knatural writes:  I think its sad that Gabby's mother has to explain her so called "troubled hair."  I'm glad that mom stepped in to defend her daughter.  I really don't understand why or how this became such a big issue.  Gabby is in the Sports Oympics not a Hair Olympics competition. I think sometimes people just go overboard with the  hair thing with African-Americans.  Our hair makes us unique, so we should embrace our differences and move on.

The tennis star said she had "chill bumps" when she watched Douglas become the first African-American woman to win the all-around Olympic gymnastics gold Thursday.
Williams also has followed the online debate, mostly via Twitter, about Douglas' straightened hair. "It's gorgeous! People don't know what they're talking about," Williams told USA TODAY Sports on Friday. "It's ridiculous. It's so ridiculous. Her hair is gorgeous."

Knatural writes:
This young lady has achieved something that others can only dream about.  So why oh why are we discussing her hair?  People need to get a life and be proud that she has represented the USA well.
Congratulations Gabby!

My Summer Vacation With Sisterlocks


Labels: ,

Hey guys and gals!  I wanted to share a photo from my summer vacation in Helen,GA.  I'm so thankful that I have Sisterlocks.  I did not have one worry about my hair at all.  My Sisterlocks survived the hot tub and tubing down the Chattahoochee River.  I loved just being able to get up and go and not being afraid of getting my hair wet.

Sisterlocks and Slippage


Labels: , ,

Hey guys and gals!  Just wanted to show you my 3rd re-tightening. If you look on the left side of the picture(my right), you will notice that I have slippage(the curly hair on the ends).  I did have some of it fixed because some of the locks were coming down a lot.  I also had this same problem when I had traditional locks so it's not a surprise.  To help remedy the problem and to cut down on longer re-tightening sessions, I'm going to wash my hair every two weeks instead of every week.  I ordered a new shampoo by Dread Head HQ called Dread Soap.  This shampoo is for people with Type 1 hair that want to have dreadlocks.  This shampoo supposedly aids in the locking process by helping the locks to lock tighter and in a shorter amount of time.  I'll give this a try and keep you guys posted on the results.

Why Hair Turns Gray Is No Longer A Gray Area: Our Hair Bleaches Itself As We Grow Older



ScienceDaily (Feb. 23, 2009) — Wash away your gray? Maybe. A team of European scientists have finally solved a mystery that has perplexed humans throughout the ages: why we turn gray. Despite the notion that gray hair is a sign of wisdom, these researchers show that wisdom has nothing to do with it.

Going gray is caused by a massive build up of hydrogen peroxide due to wear and tear of our hair follicles. The peroxide winds up blocking the normal synthesis of melanin, our hair's natural pigment.
"Not only blondes change their hair color with hydrogen peroxide," said Gerald Weissmann, MD, Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal. "All of our hair cells make a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide, but as we get older, this little bit becomes a lot. We bleach our hair pigment from within, and our hair turns gray and then white. This research, however, is an important first step to get at the root of the problem, so to speak."

I have a few grays hairs peaking through with my Sisterlocks.  I will be using henna to cover the gray once my locks mature.  What do you do to cover the gray or are you going to let nature take its course?
