The Hair Above Your Eyes

Do you wax, tweeze,use depilatory cream or laser hair removal techniques to arch your eyebrows and/or remove unwanted hair from other facial areas?

Well, have you ever tried eyebrow threading?

Me and a few fellow SL'd sistahs Dewdrop including my very own SL Consultant Paulette Brown and her daughter Ashley prefer this ancient Indian all natural, safe, simple, fast effective method of facial hair removal. Threading is considered a great option for those with sensitive skin or folks who are on Retina and Accutane.

Threading removes the hair from the roots and doesn't peel the layer of skin. Now, your skin will probably redden but this does not result in any lasting skin irritation or bumps at all. I can't honestly say that it is totally painless. It can be uncomfortable... but it REALLY IS NOT THAT BAD at all. My eyes water everytime (no from crying but more from the activity near my eyes), but WOW the result is amazing. I used to have my brows waxed but this just is so fast, clean and very precise. Of course, this depends on the skill of the threader. I struggle to pronounce my threaders' names but they ROCK everytime. I have not once been disappointed to date.

Like my Sisterlocks, I love my eyebrows... they have a natural arch and when cleaned up, my eyes just really stand out.

Eyebrow threading is gaining popularity in the US it seems. At least in my area of Metro Detroit there is more than just one location to have one's eyebrows threaded.

Do check out a YouTube video by a young lady from Canada named Thushaa. She shows you how to become a DIY eyebrow threader. It's so easy...but certainly, as with everything PRACTICE MAKES IMPROVEMENT...

Coloring Sisterlocks Cognac-ish

I'm glad our WATER BILL was paid... I colored my Sisterlocks! Which is a hellava RINSING process with Sisterlocks... WHEW!  I have used semi-permanent color or rinses before, but never a permanent color like this one. Just tryin' to make sure I rinsed all product out of my SLs, I MUST have emptied our hot water tank for sure!  :-)

As much as I LOVE sistahs who really go TRUE golden, auburn or copper with their locs, I'm still not that bold... YET!  If I EVER DO IT, I'll probably get it done by a professional.What I really like in hair coloring Sisterlocks not withstanding is that TRUE tortoise shell 3-tone effect. That's a GOOD LOOK!! I think that requires some bleaching/highlighting  that I'm NOT particularly comfortable with... at least, not as this time. It would seem to me that a sistah would be tempted to color much more often than perhaps she might have originally expected to maintain the effect.  Anywhoooo... not yetfor ME is all I can say...

Length to Short Bob Sisterlocks Hairstyle

Well, it has been about 2 years since my last post... (seems I'm mostly on my personal Facebook page and Google+ not to mention working towards completing my doctoral degree expected 2015 WhoopWhoop... but, I digress...)

Here's what up... As the title suggests, I have gotten my length of 9 years cut into an Angled Bob. Now, while I had envisioned my Bob having a definite wedge from the side view... I guess my hair is just to fine to REALLY STACK HIGH naturally. That being said I do like my cut, but I was tickled by it because truly 'all things old become new again'. What I mean is that I HAD a permed Bob with a very short cut nape of my neck upon having my Sisterlocks installed back in 2005...and looking at my hair in 2014 it seems that I have started where I had come back then! (See the pic)
Of course, THIS TIME the hair on the top of my head is chemical-free!! 
This is ME with all my daughters...we all rock natural hair. My two SL'd daughters-- 2girlsbigsister (i…

Pipe Cleaner, Spoolies, and Wrap-A-Loc Tool Sisterlocks Spiral Curls

Here are my results from using pipe cleaners, Spoolies (hair spools) and the Wrap-A-Loc tool. I only use black in case of pipe cleaner shedding. Of course, to avoid shedding issues and snagging from the inexpensive pipe cleaner, I do recommend UPGRADING to the Wrap-A-Loc Tool. (Times got a lil' tight in MY household financially so I haven't yet purchased the longer Wrap-A-Loc Tool that WOULD accommodate my new hair length. Ya gotta do what you gotta do to get stuff done, ya know...) Click play button to see more pics.Nowadays, I only use my Spoolies and Wrap-A-Loc tools for a single strand of loc that I may have missed; but only because the amount of hair these particular size tools hold have become limited since I have more length AND thickness per loc.
I just let these curls hang all day. I never broke him up at all. I really liked the look!
