Sophia, Naturally (My Life with Natural Hair)

My Sisterlocks had just turned 3 when I decided to join this exchange. I've had natural hair, well forever, and have a blog( as old as my Sisterlocks about my life with Sisterlocks/natural hair. I invite you to check it out and COMMENT (not yelling just suggesting, LOL).

Photos say 1,000 words and since I can't give you a dissertation (I've been warned), here we go:

The Bend Of My Hair

I accidentally went natural.

There was no come-to-jesus moment. No staged revolts against creamy crack. No late night epiphanies.

Eight years ago, I got my last perm and just never looked back. I didn’t walk out of the appointment vowing never to get another perm. I just never went back to my stylist, who I had been with for years.

I initially started off with braids and over the next several years wore a variation of sis twists styles. I received lots of compliments. When my hair was freshly done and even when it was time for maintenance, people would stop me all the time and ask me for my stylist’s business card. I even started a sis twist trend at work. I was often told how natural my hair looked.

But it wasn't natural. It wasn't MY hair.

I decided that I wanted to run my fingers through my hair. Everyday. In its natural state. I briefly considered my options. I had a beautifully thick head of hair. I could start wearing my hair out in various twist outs and roller sets. I could rock my fro. The possibilities were endless. It would allow me a chance to really get to know my hair and to see what it can do–good and bad.

However, I’ve always had loc envy. There is nothing like a crown of well-maintained locs – on women and on men. As I started researching, I discovered Sisterlocks. In talking to women who have them, I just knew they were for me. It just felt right.

My lock anniversary is on May 1-2, 2010. Join me on my journey towards fully loving and embracing the bend of my hair.

Hibiscus Niki

Hello all,
I am Hibiscus Niki and have been sister locked since 6-20-2008. I found this wonderful world of lockers and bloggers after my install was completed and I was anxiously searching to find out what the future had in store for my beautiful hair that wasn't feeling so beautiful at the time. My journey has been exciting thus far to say the least but I know that locks only get better with age. Feel free to check out my blog Hibiscus Niki as I document where I have been and where I am going. See how far I have proudly come.

Lock on wit yo bad self!

Locked and Roaring Proud!

Hello! I'm Kimberly and my sisterlock birthday was January 15-17, 2010.  Sisterlocks were my blessing when I came to the crossroads of wanting to be natural, wanting to be locked, but also wanting to be active (running).  I've been running for over a decade so any hairstyle I chose whould have to accommodate that. 

I have been natural since February 28, 2007. One day I got up and had my then-boyfriend/barber shave my short, relaxed cut right off - no transition necessary!  From then until January 2009, I kept my hair shaved low.  In 2009, I grew my hair into a 'fro.  October 2009 was when I decided to try to start locks by coils.  It wasn't practical for my active lifestyle, and lack of time.  So in November, I uncoiled my hair and scheduled my sisterlock installation with the excellent Danielle.

Please follow my little journey at - and there are bits about skin health, getting a doctorate, career, and my life. I'd just adore some followers and please take a look at those that I follow - they were incredibly inspirational for me.

Be well, be blessed!
