I am honored to be part of the Sisterlocks community, and quite recently, the blogging community. The LHBE was one of my first points of reference as I researched Sisterlocks and the inspiration I received here, as well as on LIU, is what has made my SLs journey what it is today. To say I'm delighted with my Sisterlocks would be an understatement. True, I've had a twinge of drama here and there (coloring too soon, sometimes wishing I'd cut off all of my relaxed length before starting SLs), but none of these dramatic moments have lasted very long. For the most part, I am carefree and lovin' it! And I have met the most incredible souls both online and off since beginning my journey on December 8, 2006. Sisterlocks have proved to be more than a positive change for the way I care for my hair, they've also brought good fortune to many other areas of my life. So come and visit my blog at http://blessedgemlady.blogspot.com/and keep up with my Blessed Journey.

I got my sisterlocks a year and a half behind my twin sister Ama, because I fell in love with them immediately I saw them.They were the answer to prayer. Over 2 decades of relaxers had left my hair lifeless. I had cut it and was keeping it natural with weaves and braids but knew they weren't a lasting solution. When Ama told me about her discovery of Sisterlocks, I knew this was it. I couldn't wait. We both took the consultant's training class together in 2003 in New York. At the same time I had my Sisterlocks put in then flew back home(it was Ghana then) to be the FIRST Sisterlocks consultant there. In the following years I have moved continents twice(from Africa to London and most recently to Atlanta, Ga) leaving behind many wonderful clients but looking forward to helping many new sisters and brothers here to "come home" to Sisterlocks. I have two natural daughters - 4 and 2. The 4-year old is Sisterlocked and my son has been promised Brotherlocks for his 12th birthday.(He's 10.5) if he's good. He asks me everyday. Please enjoy my journey which is being resumed as some of you may know.(Cross my heart, I will keep up!)

I'm Ama from Ghana. Sisterlocked in London in September 2002. I can't imagine life before and without them! I am a certified sisterlocks trainee (in Fall 2003) and maintain them myself unless my twin sister Amba is in town. As of this post, I have ten Ghanaian sisterlocks clients now so I am quite busy what with a full time job and an eight month old baby girl. Visit my Ghana sisterlocks blog where I (sporadically) post information and photos about sisterlocks in Ghana.

i have not had my hair professionally retightened since i moved to Germany 2 years ago. I want the luxury of going to a consultant here to have my hair done within a day, on a regular basis. The closest consultants are in the Nederlands, France, England and Switzerland. That's possible if i have a reason to go to those places. Are there any Sisterlock sistahs in Germany, in particular Munich or Augsburg? I live in Donawörth which is 30 mins. by train to Augsburg and 1.5 hr by train to Munich. Any suggestions?

I started my Sisterlock journey on December 28th 2005 and I haven't had a bad hair day since. I live in the Pacific Northwest where it rains more than the sun shines so having locks is the best decision for this climate. Whoever said....."Brown sugar melts"....didn't have Sisterlocks. Enjoy!
