One year AFTER the Sisterlocks Haircut

So, you've seen my video... now, what's holding YOU back about making your personal Sisterlocks decisions??
You might ask, WHAT SISTERLOCKS DECISIONS do I even have? 

Well, are you vacillating over questions with regard to your natural hair in general? to the present condition of your Sisterlocks today? or, to scheduling a Sisterlocks install appointment? How about the following questions:
  • Can I afford Sisterlocks upkeep? (Good question... if you are NOT a DIYer)
  • How much do I care about what other people think about me?
  • Are you ready to BE-U-TIFUL*, shameless and fearless? (DAILY BAEZ's word...I like it!)
  • Should I take the plunge into Sisterlocks in stages? No BIG CHOP just yet...just loc the new growth? 
  • Are am damaging my Sisterlocks by NOT cutting them?
  • Can I resist loc envy and stay the course whatever my stage in the process?
You'll note that the motivating crux of all these questions is your MINDSET. Your mindset mediated by your own sense of identity, worth, and ability.  May I be the first to say, "YOU GOT THIS"...but, ONLY if YOU believe that you've got this and ONLY if you are committed to engaging in the PROCESS! Believe me, the process of cultivating your Sisterlocks is a natural hair journey of growth on spiritual, mental, and physical levels.

How many of YOU out there can attest to this fact??

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!!

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!
