Move Over Knotty Boy: Sanaa Zuri Conditions Sisterlocks!

Used with permission of Sanaa Zuri's Skin Care Solutions, LLC
Loc'd hair thrives on products that are residue –free and offer moisture, but not to the point of causing the loc to swell even after it’s dry. Using Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA- a natural emollient that softens and soothes the hair & scalp while adding sheen,  I experienced locs that were soft to the touch. I initially used Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula as a leave-in conditioner that I applied to my already dry and curled Sisterlocks. I used about a nickel-size amount in my hand that I applied throughout my dry and pipe-cleaner curled SLs. I just knew that I was about to lose all my curls being that the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner instantly softened my hair to the touch. To my surprise days later I still had curls!! I had merely followed my normal nightly regimen when I have curls: stuff my locs into a fishnet-like cap at night. It seemed that even scrunching my hair in the cap curled it more. I had not added anymore Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula to my hair. I applied Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula to my daughters’ locs and they too had the same effect. WE LOVE the Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA for our Sisterlocks!!

On my other daughter’s loose virgin hair however using Sanaa Zuri’s More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with Calendula used as directed (applied and rinsed out completely) made the detangling process a BEAST…but once we got past that task and began flat ironing her hair, I was astonished at how few swipes of the flat iron was required to reveal super straightened, soft and shiny hair. My daughter’s hair remained straight and shiny days beyond her usual touch-ups again with the flat-iron.
My guess is that whatever the calendula does to the hair to “tangle it” is BENEFICIAL and just WORKS for loc-wearers. The result is a tighten loc whether the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA is used as a leave-in or applied and rinsed out completely.  I think loc-wearer have a NEW ALTERNATIVE in conditioning locs. DISCLAIMER: Both the daughters’ and my Sisterlocks ARE MATURE and can stand conditioning.  However, I do have some locs that have broken off and now are NOT loc’d to the end. These broken off ends must seal all over again and so far I’m  LOVIN’ how the Sanaa Zuri’s  More Moisture Silkening Hair Conditioner with CALENDULA  seems to moisturize, strengthen and  LOCK (tangle) the ends in a manner that seems, in my opinion, to promote accelerated locking. PLEASE TAKE NOTE that these are MY CLAIMS and NOT that of Sanaa Zuri's Skin Care Solutions, LLC.  I’m just saying…it worked like that for my Sisterlock’d hair... My hair has never softer, yet TIGHT... and I ♥ it! It's the best of both worlds...

Try it out! Post your results...


Interesting post, we are shocked you don't know about the Take Down Remover cream for taking out braids, weaves, twists or natural dreadlocks easier,faster. It detangles very matted tangled hair easy and safely.

It also prevents hair breakage no matter how long your braids or weaves are in. It is great for women who are transitioning to natural hair from relaxers as well.

It is not a water based or glycerine based product-so it works on every type of hair texture, every head, every time.

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!
