Heard of Curlformers?

I learned about these curlers from LADYKPNYC on YouTubeCAUTION: Some Profane Language

I was fascinated with these Curlformers! I wondered if they would work on Sisterlocks, but I'm actually very happy with the method I use to presently spiral curl my loc'd hair --pipe cleaners. My next thought was my own offspring. Thinking 'how cool not to have to use heat'... Of course, I certainly curl their hair with everything I USE already. TRUTH IS... I just REALLY wanted to try these Curlformers. I purchased the hook--$3.99 and a single package of rollers --$11.99 at Sally's Beauty Supply. I only got 8 rollers in a pack. So, as you see I used just a few Curlformers on each of my girls. I chose NOT to just to try these Curlformers on the hair of a single willing daughter -- just in case it really worked. 3girlsmomma wasn't 'bout to hear all the whinin' about how they wanted curls like their sister.

Well, I'll get back to you on the AFTER...
My girls went to bed with the Curlformers in their freshly washed & conditioned hair which is relaxed by the way (I know... for shame, for shame... I know...) and treated with aloe vera and Anahita's Hair Oil by Warm Spirits. My plan is to put the back of their hair in a doughnut bun in the morning for school and take pics then...

What are curlformers? Can you leave it in their hair?

Anthia-ofo, visit for the full explanation from the manufacturer. The Curlfomers are only to be left on the hair until the hair dries via dryer hood or air-drying.

I was so impressed with the actual curls after the roller were taken out...(I'll blog about it!)

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!

Avoid Fat Sisterlocks Ends

"I want Sisterlocks like yours... I hate my fat Sisterlock ends!"

This typically happens to Sisterlock'd ends of hair with a thick soft wavy texture. After it occurs, the only remedy I have learned of to date is to CUT OFF THE OFFENDING ENDS.

To avoid or control the normal swelling expected on your journey to loc maturity-- particularly, of the thick soft wavy hair type, follow the next set of rules:

1. BAND YOUR ENDS EVERY TIME YOU WASH YOUR HAIR. You may need to do so longer than the regularly prescribed time period until YOUR particular hair type locks.
2. DON'T wet, spritz or spray your ends with anything (Sisterlocks Moisture Treatment product included) unless they are banded.
3. When you shower, at the very least-- WEAR your shower caps my loc'd thick soft and wavy sistahs!
