Sister-likes Knotty Boy: Sisterlocks
Justin Bieber, Drake and others aren't the only HOT things straight outta Canada... 

This year I finally tried Knotty Boy products. I'm lovin' the Dread Shampoo Bar (with 3 Sisterlock'd heads in the house I chop it into thirds and we all shampoo awhile.) It lathers and rinses well and I love the tea tree scent! Then there is the Dreadlock Conditioning Spray... again, I love the Green Tea scent (my kids don't care for it--but WHAEVAH!!) I specifically wanted to try the Knotty Boy Natural MISTic Lock Deodorizer and Fragrance Spray for my dear daughters who have less than fresh heads @ times. I bought the Waterfall scent for them. After it arrived and we tried it, they felt that I should have gone with the Satsuma Spritz scent. They liked the idea of smelling like a "plump juicy orange!" Overall, the Knotty Boy products performed as promised.  My SLs are noticeably softer to the touch with a spray of the conditioning product without ANY greasiness. 

However, I must say that I don't like putting too much product on my hair as I am having a series of microdermabrasion treatments done on my face. My hair is long enough these days to get in my face thus having the potential of transferring that which is in my hair to my face and neck. Of course, the ingredients of KnottyBoy products are for the most part natural with Hempseed Oil reigning supreme. I also seems that with regular use Knotty Boy keep my Sisterlocks tight with minimal fuzziness after washing.  I have become increasingly concerned that my oldest hair on the ends be conditioned as such I do still melt a dollop of Nutiva's raw, extra-virgin Organic Coconut Oil and pour a dime size drop of cold-pressed, extra virgin olive oil in my hands then run my hands thru my SLs for extra moisture. Coconut and olive oils are proven to penetrate the hair, thickening the hair shaft and reducing breakage and split ends. These LONG COLD WINTERS here in my state are just brutal on hair and skin.  Hmm... just writing about all this makes me want to grab another glass of water and drink up!

Anywhoo... KnottyBoy products ROCK my Sisterlocks! If you know of any other divine products particularly formulated for locs, you betta tell somebody... post your comment here!

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…

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!

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!
