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!
