10 Month

I can't believe it has been ten months already! Where has the time gone?! I got my hair re-tightened the day after Christmas, it has been five weeks and two days since my last re-tightening. I went to Paulette with a braid-out, it seems as though the braiding camouflages the regrowth!

My girlfriend, Nicele, who also has sisterlocks, created this beautiful hairstyle for a special Christmas program I was going to attend at church on Sabbath. I got so many compliments on my hair! I wonder if I'll ever be able to create a style like that? . . . maybe when my hair is longer.

Life Before Sister Locks

In order to accurately chronicle my "Natural Hair Journey" I guess I have to show my progression to SisterLocks. I can tell that this post is going to take a long time to put together. Maybe the best way to show this is with a slide show. Anyone know how to do a slide show??

Big "Thank you" to BlaqKofi ~ I did it!! :-)

05 Month

This is my fifth anniversary. At the end of the retightening I noticed that the loose hair on the ends still have coils, but the locks, themselves are not very springy. This is another stage that I'm not too happy about, but overall, there is nothing else I would want to to with my hair.

02 Months

This was the day before my first retightening. My locks are now about two months old. They are not as cute as they were when they were new, but according to the blogs I've read this is to be expected. They have coiled up considerably and they are very springy. It's true what they say in the blogs, "you really can't keep your hands out of your hair!" I am constantly playing with my springy, coily locks.

First day of Sister Locks

By the time I got home after my locking session last night it was about 1:00 am. I took a quick shower and hit the bed. The next day my lock were fabulous. Believe it or not, these pictures were taken the day after I had locked. They are one day old locks and all I did was wet them in the shower. SisterLocks are the best thing I could ever have done to my hair! Dr. Cornwall, I love you!!

Sister Lock Birthday

My locks were born on Valentine's Day, 14 February 2006. Paulette of Locks 4 Life is an amazing loctician, she gave me perfect tiny locks. The whole process took 16 hours. She started at 7:30 am and ended at 11:30 pm. Her work is awesome! If you are looking for a Sister Locks loctician in the metro Detroit area, check her out!
