A few hairstyles

Tryin to get the hang of my styling options.. Here is my braid out I did.. I was feeling this style....I just orded my loop loops so I am excited that I can do a bit more styling options now... So I will keep you posted on that......

I used a little bit of organic coconut oil for my scalp to handle my desert feeling scalp........
I attempted use some sponge rollers
to acheived some curls but it didn't have much effect to my hair so hopefully I will acheive better results with the lock loops!


I have already have noticed some slippage.... particularly on the neck hair line.. I was a bit disappointed that I had some and thinking I would escape this but I guess that is what the journey is truly all about! I am thinking it came after the first wash Anywhoo.. check out the slippage on the left side and also in the middle.. You can see my beedy bees...LOL

First Wash

Hey folks, I am back again...I did my first wash last week but just late posting :) So my husband was a great sport .. I grabbed him told him to snap a few pics so I could see how my hair looked.
This is my hair banded in preparation for the BIG first wash.

I have to admit I was a bit nervous because I wanted to make sure I did everything by the book. I called Amba, my sisterlock consultant just to make sure I had the method down....
Check out the actual washing....... I had my gently wash motion going on here.... You really can't see the suds but its there..

And after it was all said and done and dry there is the end results......

The First 7 days of my Sisterlocks

Sisterlocks birthdate: Created on October 17, 2008 and born on October 18, 2008
Beginning Length: 3-5 inches ( layers)
Sisterlock Consultant: Amba
Service: 20 hours but well worth every single hour!

My decision to join the sisterlock family began in July 2008. I began researching, reading blogs and praying about what I should do with my hair. The more I read and prayed I knew this was right for me! In September 2008 I scheduled my consultation with Amba and I was sold from there.

Let me give you a little history here.....just to show you my hair journey

I have been natural since October 2006. I made the tramatic decision to do the BIG CHOP and chopped off atleast 5 inches of my relaxer,leaving me with about 2 inches of natural hair.... I still can't beleive I did it... I was faithful to my relaxer touch-ups. Noneoftheless I came home to the natural side and been lovin' every since. I did everything from rocking Afro's to the two strand twist, with occasionally straightening... But let me be real.. it was just too much work.. I had a little one and hubby.. and crazy job schedule.. who has time to do hair.. Not me!
