Clean and Fluffy!
It is my four years 3 months Sisterlocks anniversary. My locs are now long enough to wet set without any rods. I can just bantu knott set all over. I started to realize the perm rods are too heavy.
I experimented with the Helicopter wet set, but I found that the roller plus the rods were too heavy for my locs. Now, I know why people select chenille stems/pipe cleaners to wet set. The lighter weight is less stressful on the locs.
Soiled and flat.
People always seem to question my "hang time." I have a lot of shrinkage in my curl pattern, and I prefer volume versus it weighing too heavy. In my "soiled and flat" picture, my Sisterlocks felt stringy, but they hung longer than ususal. I don't want to sacrifice my "fluffy" for "hang time." So a fresh shampoo and wet set is required for maximum curl and volume.
