Oh, how fast they grow!

Posted by Picasa
Did you think I was JUST talking about my Sisterlocks?! Gotcha! I'm and I'm not actually... I have been just so touched by how fast my kids are growing. These girls are my twins. Two-thirds of my offspring.

McKenzie here just lost her first top tooth on Friday.
While, her twin sister (the older one by 20 minutes) lost her second top tooth just the day before on Thursday.

Oh my twin babies, weren't, and aren't, they just the cutest! (Having a Mommy moment totally right here...just bare with me...)
To think... these babies (preemies born 2 months early) grow and mature much like our locs. Just continue about your everyday routine and regimen... then before you know it, you'll see major growth. You might lose a figurative tooth along the way (like that initial self-consciousness of really being nappy in a public of perm-out and weaved-up beauties), but it's all good...

'Cause guess what? We are all the happier for it. Water is now OUR friend.

Hope you, too, are enjoying your summer, Natural Journeys family!

Your twin daughters are so beautiful! I know you are a proud mom! It's interesting how our hair strongly influences our decision about exercising. It almost seems as if we went from one extreme to the other i.e. permed hair= avoid water, rain or any form of exercise that will cause you to sweat, versus, nappy hair= water is now our friend and feel free to swim, sweat and get wet! (Then again, I have issues with sand getting in my locs at the beach, lol! ) This is a great photo of you looking so peaceful as you float in the water.

Thx for the compliment on my offspring. I am 3girlsmomma and so blessed by motherhood. I'm DONE, though...

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!

Natural Journeys family, please share your fat loc'd hair end avoidance tips!
