What I Hate About My Sisterlocks Haircut

Notice how perfectly blunt my freshly cut ends appear this first photo.

Now, examine how frayed my ends appear in the second film strip framed pic (albeit, cutely camouflaged with a curled set).

Take a closer look...below in this pic with my hair free-styled...
I KNOW what is it... failing to band with consistency when washing.  It is also the result of rubbing my hair against unfriendly materials on bedsheets, sofacovers, etc. I mention the sofa because I used to sleep on my sofa WITHOUT the cover and my hair looked AWESOME. I think because of the sofa's woolen upholstery. Note to self: QUICK FIX= remove the present sofacover AND sleep on the sofa regularly. (It is so good to blog and think with y'all readers...)

At times when I wear my Sisterlocks free-styled, I totally have an afro-like cloud around the top of my head as it was just the top layer of my hair that was cut back in February of this year. It's the funniest thing... Know what I do, though?  I pat my 'fro and KEEP STEPPIN'! Granted, from THIS experience... I probably WON'T cut my hair again for another 5 years because I really feel like it's gonna be a long while for my ends to mature again. I seems that because I do pipecleaner curl my hair often my ends just get rubbed more... :-{

ANY other SUGGESTIONS about how to care for Sisterlocks after haircuts of mature locks? Any tricks of the natural hair trade out there, Sisterlocks family?? Leave comments!

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...

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!
