Locks Too Big???!!!

Today, I almost felt the urge to slap someone. I mean... sometimes, when you're a bit ignorant - you should keep your mouth shut. However, I suppose that if you're ignorant - you wouldn't know this piece of wisdom and would therefore open your big mouth and make the whole world aware of your foolish thoughts.

A young lady asked me how I was going to undo all these 'little plaits'; when I explained that I intended to let them lock up, she responded: "oh, you're sisterlocking!". My pleasure at her knowing the deal was cut short when she started a tirade about how mine were - wait for it- TOO BIG, cos her cousin has them and hers are far smaller than mine, so maybe my consultant didn't do it properly and I should get my money back.

You know what? Even if mine WERE too big - did she really need to tell me that? What did I gain from this observation? If I were of a weaker mind, I would have a complex about having fat sister locks and I might even have visited my consultant to complain! But you know - I read up on everything and I read about SLs before I put them in my head and I also checked out my consultant's work to make sure she was capable - and you know what? I am satisfied.

My starter locks are not too big. My hair is fine and had the parts been made any smaller, I would only have a few strands of hair per lock - which would be a certain recipe for breakage. I like my starters - they're just the right size for me. People who have nothing good to say should keep their mouths shut - if it doesn't edify the listener ie if you're gonna tear them down- just shut up.... and stop being a hater. She's lucky I didn't tell her about her raggedy weave...

Hi there, I just found your blog. Ignore the haters. I have sls(only 360-ish locs). I started off with just under 400 and since combined several smalls cos I decided I'd rather have healthy roots. Basically I have medium and large now. If you're happy with your size, then that's all that matters. Your hair looks very nice.

I know this is late.But..whatever!Isn't it interesting how the most 'negative' comments come from those who need lotsa educating? I guess that's the problem, they're so ignorant they don't realise they're ignorant.

I guess that's why you should always THINK before you SPEAK :)
