Curlformers: The AFTER Follow-up... 3girlsmomma likes

I was VERY pleased with the results I got with Curlformers on my daughters' hair. These pictures are from the morning after at 6AM. My girls went to bed with the Curlformers on their hair. (I have 3 daughters but one of my twins declined to be photographed...so, you'll have to take my word for how really well her curls came out!)


What REALLY amazed me was how well my girls' curls held after a full day of school. I picked them up from school and was shocked that their curls were not standing up on their heads like Chinese fans. (Come on, parents... you KNOW the look I'm talkin' about.) My kids' caucasian caregiver even had to agree that the girls' curls held very nicely. She too had expected the cute look to have vanished by 3:15PM.

Of course, I trust the "hold" had everything to do with the aloe vera gel and hair oil I used to set the hair prior to installing the Curlformers. I use aloe vera/water spritz daily on their hair when styling.


Here are my final thoughts on Curlformers:

Pro-- Curlformers spiral curls African American hair! If you are not so sure about how to roll your hair to create perfectly neat spiral curls... Curlformers may be for you. Just be certain to smooth the hair first with your favorite setting lotion or gel before installing the Curlformers on the hair to achieve perfect spiral curls everytime. They are kinda novel to use as well (i.e. FUN & DIFFERENT!)

Con-- Curlformers are costly in comparison to creating spiral curls with the ultra inexpensive pipe cleaner or the ever available perm rod.

Try 'em... you be the judge!

Honestly, Amba and Brunsli... we [SL-ers] are better off NOT using Curlformers.

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…

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...

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!
