Update! 8 Months Locked!

Hello all!

It's been a couple of months since I blogged on my hair. It is growing like crazy, and even looking a little thicker. I am pleased so far.

Still have the buildup issue. I have no clue what it could be from, but I am determined to get rid of it!

I will post some pictures soon!

6 Months!

Well, its been a while since I have been blogging. I'm happy to say that I am officially 6 months Sisterlocked! My consultant has been taking great care of my locks! I have still had some issues with slippage and build-up, but I am taking it day by day. Take a look at my new pics and let me know what you think.

My Month 3 Pics!

Hey people! Here are my month 3 pics! I just got my hair re-tightened.

My hair is really growing and I found out that I have more locks than I thought. My consultant and I have done a count (kinda) and we found out that I have about 400-450 instead of the 350 that I thought I had.

I have also started a fitness blog. Please join me over there as well. I appreciate any kind words and help that you can give to that journey as well.....

Month 3 Update!

I have finally reached the 3 month mark! I am so happy! I don't have any good pics to share yet but I will have some in a few days. I also have a SL sighting to report.....

I recently went to the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, OH. It's mainly about bodybuilding, but they have some other events going on. Thursday night, we went to the Amateur Figure and Fitness competition and right in the lineup was a lovely lady with SISTERLOCKS! I was so happy that I texted my consultant right then and there! I said it would be great if I could meet her and say hi, but that night it didn't happen.

Well, Saturday afternoon, I saw her again. Her name is Lorna Cavin, and she is from CA. She is 50 years young! She doesn't look it at all! Here is your shout out Ms. Lorna! You did great this past weekend and it was a joy meeting you!

Also this weekend, I have a renewed spirit and am going to get back on the getting fit wagon! My goal is to look as good as the figure competitors that I saw this weekend. That would mean I would have to lose about 90 pounds. I am up for the challenge, and I could use any help and support that would help me reach my goal.

Enough rambling for to wash my hair........

Month 2 YAY!

Well it's been 2 whole months since my journey began. I am so excited! My locks are coming along slowly but surely. My slippage is calming down and I am very impressed with my progress. I had my hair re-tightened by my consultant , and here are my pictures.......

My hair is growing like crazy! Now I have the build up issue in the back row of my locks. I don't use products on my hair. I have been washing with starter shampoo and Neutragena T-Gel. I have tried a Listerine and ACV rinse. My consultant thinks its the T-Gel. I don't think I can go the Brunsli route with the marker just yet ;-)

Any help is appreciated.....

Been MIA!

Hey all. I have been MIA, trying to get school together. I am pursuing my Nursing degree, and its so frustrating.

I got some of my hair tightened by a Sister who just finished the training. As soon as she finishes, I will post pics. I will be 2 months locked on the 9th! YAY!

For now, I'm back to studying....

One Month Progress!

I'm so excited! I have noticed growth on these baby Sisterlocks! The scalpy look is back with the retightening, but I'm still happy! Nevermind the back shot of my head (hubby was supposed to tell me it was jacked up)....
Anyway, I'm so proud that I'm on my way!

1 Month Locked!

I am 1 month Locked!

I am so happy. My locks are 1 month old today! There is still a bit of slippage in the front and middle of my head and around the nape of my neck. I am so pleased that I have made it this far. I thank everyone for your suggestions and info to help me on this journey. I am going for a re-tightening on Friday and I will post pics then......

First Rollerset! LOL!

Well, I attempted my first rollerset yesterday........

I thought it went ok. I don't like the way the rollers separated my curls into blocks. I tried finger combing, it made it a little better. I guess I will try to roll it straight back instead of my normal part on the side.

I also tried something new on my dry scalp. I did a Listerine, yes Listerine, rinse. I had been reading about it on and decided to find out what the rave was about. Well, I'm happy to say that the itchies are gone. I might have to rinse again for all the flakes to disappear, but for now I'm quite happy.

My 1 month lock anniversary is in 8 days! Yay!
