Sisterlocks Fun at 5 years 3 months

My arm got freed!!!!

Halloween Makeup Artistry added to enhance the mask!  My real fingernails grew out while my injured arm was immobilized.



Authority Look

My Sisterlocks are five years and three months old.  My personality is young at heart.  So it's nothing for me to clown around.  


Stay tuned for my Next article: Benita's Favorites for 2017!!

Sisterlocks Anniversary: 5 years and 2 months

My collage of me age 27 versus age 47.

Twenty years later, I am in Sisterlocks land. I am at my five years and two month Sisterlocks anniversary.  I am not blogging as much because the natural hair movement is full throttle, and many of my clients still love their relaxers.  I must admit that relaxers make my job and my clients' lives easier.  I don't plan to stop the relaxers when so many still benefit from them.

For those who have learned to make natural hair - loose or locked work - then it is all good!!!  I personally know that my loc journey is my final hair destination.  I will continue to partner with clients to meet their needs with or without chemicals.


My fractured arm is healing!  I have been out of work for about six weeks now.  I miss my clients, and they miss me!!!  I am watching my weight using Herbalife meal replacement shakes and other supplements.  My nails on my injured hand are the longest they have been in a long time.  I feel like Superwoman.  LOL

My arm is strong enough to get more walking in for exercise. (sweating in picture above)  Also, my left arm is able to tightening my Sisterlocks with ONE HAND and Bantu knot set them for styling purposes.

Sisterlocks are clearly Apocalypse ready.  I just need my hands to tighten and finger style (one hand at that).  It just doesn't get any simpler than that from a self sufficiency standpoint. Well, stay tuned until next month!

Trending: Side Swept Goddess Braid

Hair by Benita Blocker

I have seen all races of women, Celebrities all with this Side Swept Goddess braid.  It starts with a side part.  It is a trendy, elegant style!

I used Expression length Jumbo braiding hair. I was able to braid to the end because of the two different lengths. (84" and 85")

Sisterlocks:. Five Years One Month Anniversary

I was in the mix for the August 2017 Eclipse.  I had an eye exam scheduled during the eclipse! 
So coincidental!

I fractured my humerus bone in my right arm.  I painted this picture with left hand.  I received a lot of compliments!

I bantu knot set my whole head using my left hand.  Sisterlocks are no joke! One hand or both hands- can deliver glam!

The Promise Land: Five years Into Sisterlocks!

My Loc Journey:  It's my Five Years Sisterlocks Anniversary!



Five years . . . I made it over!

Three inches a year in visible length makes this last year the finale in my monthly check-ins.

My locs DID NOT feel heavy on my last shampoo.  So I realize if I don't keep my roots tightened then the shampoo process makes my locs heavy and stressful to my scalp.

I also have learned that water or water based sprays fluffy my locs out.  Usually my roots need fluffing on a daily basis.

Thank you for following my Sisterlock journey!  I am going to push myself to continue writing about hair.  Stay tuned.
