My Sisterlocks Haircut

Ooooo... I'm very pleased with my haircut. After taking Tony thru a montage of my web-based Sisterlocks photo albums and videos, he began to conceptualize my needs/desires.
Tony took care of my hair like I knew he would. It was so great seeing and talking with him again face-to-face. I haven't been in his chair for over eight years at least. I secretly had envied his well-kept traditional locs of back in the day. I knew locking was something I wanted to do, but I was hardly ready then-- on a number of levels.

Knowing what I know NOW about the Sisterlocks technique in terms of their care and distinction over other locking techniques, I HAVE TODAY what I envied in Tony's traditional locs. With Tony having been a former loc-wearer (two sets), I confidently placed my Sisterlocks in his care.I am thrilled to have tracked Tony Manson down to become a client of his again. I'm not the only one! I learned from Tony that many of his former clients keep his skills sharp. We (former clients) won't let Tony change his vocation like he has changed his hair. You won't cut ME off, Tony... I'll find you my dear brutha. [devilish smile]I am happy for him in that he has gotten back to an original love of writing... Not only is he a skillful stylist; he is a published author-- "When You Don't Know" and businessman these days!

Nice trim! It's awesome that your stylist is doing what he loves.

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!
