OK, I've been natural since possibly high school.  I was going through that perm- meets- micro braids-meets finally virgin hair phase. I call it a phase, because I didn't truly wear my own hair; you know weaves, braids etc. When I finally loved my "fro" was when I woke up one morning, wet it, and realized I could really go out in public without feeling like a complete mess. I loved my coils and delighted in it.  I finally locked up in 2006, YAY!!!. WHY? you ask, if you asked. I wanted to try something new. It wasn't about a new founded religion, finding myself, or being as natural as possible. I was simply tired of the same "OL' DO." Locs aren't a mystery. If you want to start them. Simply figure out the size and what products you like to use in them. To wash my hair; I use anything I could find that lathers and smells good.. Clarifying shampoo are the best for any hair types. You could find it at your near by liquidators, CVS, RITE-AIDE, DUANE REED on SALE. I don't suggest anyone pay full price. I barely every condition my hair. But let the rumors rest; you can condition your hair as often and wash your hair as often as you wish. Shampooing tangles your hair, a MUST to the process of locs. As far as maintaining it's healthy appearance. I use two must have products. 1) Natural Elegance Lock UP: Shea &  Coco Butter. 2) Herbe Life Productions; Crown Heights, Rosemary Hemp Hair oil (Liquid Gold).
Herb N Life Crown Heights

This principal product combines the power of Rosemary Essential Oil, Olive Oil, Hemp and Castor Oils to create a invigorating hair oil that promotes shine and manageability all with an amazing scent and feel.

I don't have to say much about this invention. Cheers, applause and I do bow down to South African Dr. Sonnet Ehlers, when she patten her anti- rape condom. She sold her house and car to put the product on the market, and she distributed 30,000 free devices during this years World Cup, under supervision of course. Once trail testing have been final. The product would be on the market for $2.00 per condom. Those who think its perfectly innocent to rape and man handle the helpless surely are in for a big surprise when he puts his you know what in the NO NO region. The condom is inserted much like a female condom or tampon. Once it lodges, only a doctor can securely remove it. The rapist cannot pee and walk when it's on. If he tries to remove it, it will clasp even tighter, but it doesn't break the skin, and there's no danger of fluid exposure.

"Dr. Sonnet Ehlers was on call one night four decades ago when a devastated rape victim walked in. Her eyes were lifeless; she was like a breathing corpse. 'She looked at me and said, 'If only I had teeth down there,' recalled Ehlers, who was a 20-year-old medical researcher at the time. I promised her I'd do something to help people like her one day." -By Faith Karimi, CNN.

It's take a woman or man with a big heart to actually move mountains... Thank you Dr. Sonnet Ehlers.


Today is September 11th, 2010; nine years since the attack on the trade center. To tell you the truth, I don't know why I decided to make this an entry.  I was a mess. I was miles away from my family not knowing what could have been,  if I'd be able to speak to them again. Friends around me trying to make phone calls, professors and administrators rushing me out of class to tell me the horrific news.  And when all the smoke and ashes cleared, 2,996 people were judged before God that day. The United States of America; government, state officials and people who live here, before then, did not know true genocide. On 9/11/01, we felt 1/5 of what went on in Darfur, Rwanda, Srebrenica and Sudan. It's a blessing that we are the United States of America, that the government can lift us back up and help us some how. Our economy is at its worst since 1930, but we can still receive some type of support. You tell that to the poor people suffering in the slush that they call their homes. Third world countries never had it as good as we do. So instead of crying and cursing our lives. Lets thank God 8,000 weren't massacred between those twin towers.
