Sisterlocks: 4 years and 5 months Anniversary

Visual loc length gains about three inches per year.  At 4 years 5 months, my locs should average about 14 inches in length when measured.  I have an extremely elongated face, and my hair is at 75% shrinkage.  I mention this information because many people like comparing loc length.  My 14 inches of locs hang differently than other's 14 inches of locs.  Also, my hang time from the back as well as the hang time when my locs are wet make discernment easier on others.

Loc styling and makeup can make locs look professional.

I am definitely becoming more pescatarian than ever.  Butterflies are symbolic of the non-GMO project. I found this butterfly headband. Love it!

Ethnic Hair Tips From a Beauty industry leader

  1. Before the "protective styling" trend, I was wearing half wigs to allow my hair to rest.
  2. Before "invisible part" quickweave became popular, I was the first to create that "part illusion" that I know of.
  3. Four years and four months ago, I saw the vision of my hair in smaller locs.  The picture above reflects what a $750 installation and three Sisterlocks 4-day training sessions can lead you to.
  4. Everyone should learn to self maintain their locs in partnership with a loctician.  
  5. Interlocking can deliver a neater look to locs, but that method also enables hair from an adajacent loc to get crossed over.  Those with fine hair are more likely to get cross-over hair because one can barely see the finer hairs.  Twisting or palm rolling are probably the safest root tightening method for locs.

NOTE:  I may add on to this list periodically.
