SisterlocksTouch Lives

Take one of the longest locs you have on your head... go ahead, hold a single loc between you thumb and index fingers, examine its end... Now, think who started your locs (You? Established loctician? Friend? SL-trainee? Family-member?) Now, consider all the those who have retightened your locs, mended your locs... or touched your hair to get it to its present state.

Can you list their names? I have been SL'd 4 years. As I really began to think about how a single loc has a story, I considered my own. Paulette Brown-- started my locs as a SL trainee at her kitchen table after working her 9-to-5 job (I'm one of her "qualifying heads" towards Sisterlocks Certification). Today, she has quit her old 9-to-5. She owns her own shop in multiple locations. Her salon serves to offer experience for several other SL-trainees-- many of whom were her own clients.

Here's my longest loc... from it end to the root we've interacted with Paulette, Ericka, Atoya, myself, Robin, As…

DAY 5: Gum in Sisterlocks

Well... my daughter is definitely 7-years old! While she has never-- to my knowledge-- gone to bed with gum in her mouth, she chose to do so WITH newly installed Sisterlocks...and, YOU GUESSED IT... she GOT CHEWING GUM IN HER Sisterlocks!! sigh...

We worked it out... get her side of the story at her new blog Kids Can Have Sisterlocks

Stylin' with 2girlsBIGsister

Introducing 2girlsBIGsister... my Sisterlock'd Daughter

Can you see how proud I am of my first born child's decision to get SLs? She was such a BIG girl. Her Sisterlocks install took 11 hours and 30 minutes with two masterful locticians on her head. My baby was crowned by the INTERNATIONALLY KNOWN Certified Sisterlocks Consultant Paulette Brown and her qualifying Certified Sisterlocks Trainee De'Borah Letbetter

The gregarious and creative Certified SL Consultant Atoya Martin did my retightening while my daughter was serviced... a rich mother/daughter time indeed. As a matter of fact, matriarchal love was in full effect on May 17, 2009 at Locks4Life. There were 4 sets of mother & daughter in and out the shop during the day!

Daddy got in on the mommy/daughter day action with a little pre-Sisterlocks hug to his baby girl prior to 2girlsBIGsister's SL session.

What a special day! More to follow...
