Kids Chemical Treatment... I shouldn't have!


Last year, I tried to avoid the pain and suffering my daughters endured when I combed their hair by giving them all a texturizer treatment. As we ALL know, sure it solved the combing thru "problem" but what's followed to date is hair breakage.

Chemical crack... I should know better! What I had to learn since is how to soften each of my daughters hair WITHOUT harsh chemicals. They each have very different hair textures. With me having Sisterlocks I have gotten away from all the oils and conditioners that actually benefit my girls. So I'm back to extra virgin coconut & olive oils, glycerin & distilled water, emu oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, shea butter, honey, ACV rinses, wide-tooth combs, and kinky extension hair for braiding and twists.

They look adorable in the last photos. :)

I do not have daughters {yet} or boys, but I know I would want nothing but Natural Hair for them!

Take Care~

Your girls are beautiful and I love their natural hair. How do they feel about Sisterlocks???

I noticed that you were "following" my blog. How did you do that? I'd like to follow yours and have the "follow-my-blog" link on my Site. Let me know!

Chocolocs, I see that you have now added the "Follow-my-blog". Initially, I added you to my Google Reader list by your URL. Or somethin' like that...(?)

On Sisterlock'd daughters... yes, they ARE interested in SLs! My oldest daughter for sure.
Cute girls! They look just like you!

Aw, you have lovely girls! I did the perm thing with my daughter, only to regret it as it was followed by breakage. She now has seen for herself what these things can do, so wants to join the SL club. We're going to wait until I can do self- maintenance, then she's going to get her own SLs!

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!
