My Attempts @ Styling...don't laugh!

Month 3 = crazy thickness!

Well, the end of this month will make it 3 months that I've been sisterlocked.
My locks look nothing like they did when I first got them. They're blossoming so well you guys! I never expected them to get thick and swollen like this. Love it!!!
I can see that they are preparing to lock, as they are forming complete coils. They're also very frizzy and fuzzy. My loctician offered to "groom" my locs, but I'm not yet comfortable with that idea. I just wanna leave it alone and let it do what it wants. It's not perfect-looking, but it's mine and I'm so proud of my babies! I love that my locs have 'character' and I'm enjoying watching them find their own way. Personalized journeys are always the best.

Retightened Glory


Hello SL Fam!
I got my hair retightened on Sunday, March 15th.
What a difference a tool and a few rotations can make!
She did a great job on redoing a few of my babies up front that completely unraveled.

Well, this coming Tuesday will make 7 weeks without getting a re-tightening. Yes. One week shy of 2 months. Grrrrrr. So not happy with that. Hopefully it will be done soon, cuz I'd hate for my locs to mature bumpy-looking due to unintentionally lengthy stretches between sessions. If I'm unable to get it done by next week, then screw it (lol), I'll be attempting to do it myself with a paper clip (thanks to a youtube vid I saw a while back). Let us pray. LOL

Anyway, take a look at the thickness and the mini afro growing underneath in the following pics. A couple of my babies in the front have unraveled (about 4), so that's not too bad. Some days they don't even look like Sisterlocks cuz of how much thicker they've gotten. I LOVE it. :)

Til next time,
