Sisterlock Adoration: Finding True Hair Freedom

This blog mostly follows my hair transition to Sisterlocks(TM), but it also gives me an outlet for my occasional social commentary. I always look forward to hearing from you about my hair or my diatribes. Thanks for visiting! ***BTW- Please do not copy my pictures without permission.***

Responding to Comments about my Blog Posts

Hi Everyone,

I really don't do a good job of checking comments after my posts (sorry), so I thought I'd make a suggestion. If I don't respond to questions in a timely fashion, please shoot me an e-mail. I always respond to e-mails.

So here a couple of questions and responses.

Hi there Imus say I love your locs and am trying to begin my Sister loc journey. I decided to go natural about a month ago and yes Iam anxious to make the transition. I think i will give myself til around Christmas to get sisterlocked.

You mentioned Gigi sl's you. Can you direct me to a website or e mail address. She has been referred more than once.

Thanks and again keep up the good work your locs are beautiful and I loved the post about the first lost loc.(lol) I pictured you on the floor with your loc and TAPS playing.

Sisterlock Adoration response: Nubean Topaz, Thanks for your sweet comments. Please send me an e-mail I'll give you Gigi's contact info offline. Good luck with your process!

Your locs are so full...I can't wait until my installation next month. What size are your locs?

Sisterlock Adoration response: Honestly, I don't know. I think I would classify them as standard Sisterlock size,but I'll call my consultant and ask her tomorrow. Sorry I don't have anything more definitive. I know you're locking very soon, maybe tomorrow based on your last post:0) Good luck!

Tired of my hair!


Ya'll know that I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVE my sisterlocks. I have been never felt anything short of "Sisterlock Adoration" :0), so don't tell anyone else this, but I'm soooooo tired of my locks! I no longer feel inclined to post pictures of every stage of my growth, and it's been months since I've tried anything new. I'm in a funk. I hate the length right now. It's still too short for a real ponytail and updos look a mess unless I have a bit of a curl. I just don't know what to do with it. Given my penchant for freestyling, most of the time it's just a limp hanging mess. Maybe I'm just lazy, but I'm dying to get some suggestions for fun low maintenance looks. What did you guys do once your hair was shoulder length, but not even all around? My shag is getting on my nerves. Sorry to vent, but I'm feeling particularly irritated tonight! (Maybe it has something to do with Clinton's blowout of Obama in West Virginia...)

So what will it be? Should I color, curl, or what? UGHHHHHH! What fun new products are out there? I need your help. Help a sista out!

PS- Did I say mention how much I hate retightening my hair. It's a 1000% easier with the Nappy Lock tool, but still takes over a week for me to retighten my whole head! (I'm such a whiner. Waaa Waa Waa and all the babies cry!)
