My name is Taiysha and I am writing this journal for one reason and one reason alone - because we are one, we may not realize it all the time, but nonetheless, we are one.
I recently got Sisterlocks installed and I was taken aback with how many women were attracted to my hair. Not because they necessarily liked my hair in particular, but because they saw a sense of freedom, a way out, and they wanted in.
I would hear all sorts of comments like , "I want to get "freedom" Sisterlocks ™ but I am afraid", to "Oh, you have that good hair, you probably didn't even need to lock your hair - my hair probably wouldn't even look right with that". Now even though I was a victim of the first reason myself, the second excuse would always get me a little upset. Okay, It would get me "a lot of upset". Shoot, I felt like my hair is just the same and If they only knew my issues with hair, they probably would be floored or say, "hey, she ain't no different - she go through the same madness we go through. So in hopes of offer some encouragement to young girls and women struggling with this world's definition of beauty, I am telling my tale of my painful journey before sisterlocks™.
