Just Me & My Hair

Hello All my name is Francesca,
I have enjoyed my Sisterlocks ride since July 07 & am looking forward to all that my locks will turn into ;0) I went natural because I NEEDED a healthily change for my hair. Before going natural I have used chemicals from age 12-33. NO MORE with a SMILE.

I am enjoying my life as a Wife & a Mom, quality time w/ my husband, daughter, family & friends. I am getting my personal health/weight under control w/ honest Healthy Living. I am staying activity by meeting new friends & re-connecting w/ honest friends who are looking to do the same with me.

MzMotiv8on Has Arrived!

Hello All! I am Roneshia from the lovely Detroit, MI. I have always been a fan of locks but was too afraid to get them. Afraid Of what people will think of me or how I would be accepted. That all changed the summer of 2008 at a friends party when a young girl entered the room with the most beautiful head of locks I have ever seen on a person. As I interrogated her she informed me that they were sisterlocks and suggested that I stop perming my hair. I did and I haven't looked back since. So here I am a year later. My beautiful sisterlocks were installed on 8-25-2009 and I will never forget it. Come follow me on my motiv8on for true beauty. Much love and God Bless.

Sisterlocked and Lovin' Every minute

Hello Everyone,
My Sisterlock instalation date was February 2007. My install took 18 loooooooonnnnnnnnnnggggggggg hours. Looking back it was worth every minute! Prior to my loc journey tried short hair cuts, braids, two-strand twists, name it. I have finally found true happiness with my locs. This blog will detail my personal journey. I look forward to sharing my experiences. Feel free to check out my blog and ask questions or post comments. Thanks!

Lovin' Locks: Her Final Sisterlocks Journey

Greetings fellow locked sistren and kudos to you Maryee for providing this forum. I am excited to be on this my last locking journey.   After several tries at traditional locks via single-strand twists and one stab at Sisterlocks - come join me on  my final Sisterlocks journey!

Initial birth date:  7-15-2009
Locks:  Less than 275
Soft Spikes Roller Set

I love the look of manicured, traditional locks; however, the whole twist, wash, come loose, retwist, wash, come loose is too much for me.  In the past I put any and everything in my soft, loose wave hair to "get it to lock".  I just couldn't subscribe to the "don't wash your hair for six months" philosophy.  No way, that's just nasty so I went through months and months (did I say months) of the "twist, wash, come loose".

One of the sisters in my congregation used to ask me about locking as she admired my "twists-to-locks" as I affectionately called them since my hair hadn't actually locked up.  She went to a loctitian and commenced cultivating hers.  Now they are shoulder length and doin' what they do!  I found myself staring at her during the meetings thinking "I want locks!".  To fast forward this story I decided due to the texture of my hair I would go the Sisterlocks route to achieving fierce dreads.  The concept of being able to roll and style them held no fascination for me (like I said I LOVE traditional locks-the look, the size, everything); but being able to wash my hair early on is what attracted me to Sisterlocks.
My cousin says I look like a terrorist in this photo, cracked me UP!

Thanks to empowering sites on the WWW like LHBE I am able to be encouraged and educate myself about locking in general and Sisterlocks in particular.   I look forward to learrning how to take care of my own hair as I have never been big on paying other folks to do my hair.   Shortly after the first install attempt (7/09) I had every intention of taking the Consultant class in ATL this December.   However, I have also been looking at and contemplating the Nappy Locks Business Kit.  I might as well keep it real, I will be purchasing it in about 7 hours when I awaken for this day.

The latest:  I am still in "install" phase for my Sisterlocks.  Read my blog  and you'll see why.  This has got to be THE longest Sisterlocks install in history. 

Since July my hair has been cut minimally 6", I've dyed it dark brown to light, to lighter, to something else, then came to my senses and back to black.  So, my locks do not look like the photos here.  I DO miss my white hair.  But, good news, I already see white peeking through at the roots.  YESSS!!!!!  I can't wait 'til it grows back.  ;-)

Loc'n Remix!!!

Hello All!!
I’m Ivy from Texas. I have been natural since 2001 and loc’d since 2002. September 2009 marked my 7th year anniversary with traditional locks. I have loved every moment of my natural hair journey. When I initially decided to loc my hair, I really wanted sisterlocks™, but I was unable to find someone in Houston for consultation. So here I am 7 years later still obsessed with sisterlocks™. So what have I decided to do? I have decided to make a transition from traditional locs to sisterlocks™. If you would like to be a witness to this new adventure stop by my blog and show some love. I would like to thank all of you who are blogging because it has been an extreme blessing to me. I want to return the favor and be a blessing to someone else. Peace!
