Hair Style

Hi all I am back sorry for the delay, life has become very busy of late with show casing my new product range but more on that later.

Here is a picture of me using a bun ring to show that even though I cut my locks they can still be styled in this way. I spritzed my clean hair using my own Lemon grass hair mist.

I don't think I will do this style regularly as I felt that the synthetic bun ring held my locks too tight and scratched my scalp but as an occasional style it will be fine.

My locks have really condensed now and I continue to grow out the colour and there is no looking back so far in terms of this.

I love my locks but am considering a drastic cut as a change!

I think my optimum length is shoulder length, anything longer and my hair starts to get on my nerves and keeps getting caught up in seat belts, handbags and when dancing and I notice that I tend to wear my hair up more and packed away anyway.  Can you believe that after growing my hair for 6 years now I am saying this lol


I would also like to let you know about this Natural hair expo which is taking place tomorrow.

It promises to be very good, with all things natural for our hair, skin and bodies.

So why not come along.

For those of you who have been asking Kittylocks Hair Product range will be available at this event so I hope to see you there.

Next time I will give you an update of my hair cuts over the last year.

Until next time.

Client Feature, Rose

Here is Rose.  In this before shot you can see Rose hair which has been natural for about 4 years having grown out a relaxer. 
She used to wear her hair in braids and twists.
Her hair still had relaxer in it and was dead straight at the nape, with some split ends and some damage to her temples.
However Sisterlocks(TM) are very forgiving and this is the end result after 9 hours 20 minutes.
UPDATE BELOW: 6 weeks later and her hair has swollen nicely.

 The relaxer is still there.
As her hair grows out over time she can decide whether she wishes to cut the relaxer off or leave the 2 textures.

Hope you enjoyed these.

Client Feature: Princess

I would like to introduce my youngest Sisterlocks(TM) client named Princess. At the tender age of 6 she had never relaxed her hair and wore braided and twisted styles. As you can see she has some thinning at her temple area, around her ears and there was also some thinning to the nape of her neck.

 The body of her hair however was long and plentiful.
 9 hours and many cartoons later and Princess had started her journey.  She was so excited but she managed to sit and even had a small nap whilst her hair was being transformed. Over time these thinning areas will fill in with new hair and new locks will be installed.

After her installation she went on holiday and was swimming in the sea and pool every day.  Sisterlocks(TM) are so versatile that you can do this straight away without fear of them coming undone.
 Sisterlocks(TM) can be installed on younger children as long as they are able and willing to sit for them in comfort and with many breaks.
Her journey has started and now she tells her mummy "no slip" meaning no grease, no oils, no conditioner, no sprays, no gels and her hair will grow looooong!

I will keep you posted on Princess journey.

Happy hair

Ascot 2013, Ladies Day

This is me at Royal Ascot, Ladies Day.

I did not do too much to my hair, just a few flat twists to the middle of my hair and then left it loose and with waves at the back so that my hat could stay on.


It was my lucky day because I won 3 out of 4 races that I bet on.  How much did I win you ask? .....well that would be telling.

Client Feature, Hyacinth 8 weeks post installation

Here is Hyacinth at 8 weeks post installation.  As you can see her hair has grown and lengthened.  Due to her curl pattern and not wanting to disturb her locks too much, she washed twice during this time. She loves her locks and I was reliably informed that her Sister ran her hands through her hair in admiration.  Hyacinths HAIR BAND, (I had to put this in bold as this was an essential item for her for many many years) has been put into retirement never to see the light of day again.  As usual after her retightening session Hyacinth was living in the mirror, luckily I have a few in my home lol

Until next time

64 Months

I wanted to share this style with you as usual done on hair that needed retightening. The style was done just before I went to bed with a silk scarf tied over it so that my hair would stay flat and without any frizzies. The front was wrapped to the front and tucked under, the sides were braided down in large braids which I secured on the ends.

 This side view minus the bands on the ends.  My intention had been to undo the braids so that I would have a wavy fringe, however in the end I left them.
The back view shows 6 large twists up to the centre of my head and secured for the first night with 1 pin at the top of each twist but after the first night I removed them.  This style lasted for 1 week through my running, gym and the sauna and until I took it down.

I have had locs for 64 months now and still love them especially since I had them cut.

Next time I will try a bun to see if this can still be done on my hair length.

Until next time

happy hair

Client Feature, Hyacinth

This is Hyacinth installation.  She has never worn her natural hair out and usually wears wigs or adds extensions to her hair.  After doing her research she chose to come home to Sisterlocks(TM).  She shaved her hair and allowed it to grow out into this even shape below.


16 hours and 20 minutes later and she is on her Sisterlocks(TM) journey. It is a very satisfying and humbling experience to play a part in some ones natural hair journey.

The style below was created by making 3 large, loose flat twist up to the top of her hair and secured using her locks. The front is in 2 large braids which when taken out will be a fringe with a middle parting.Her hair looks very glossy and shiny in these pictures but as time goes by and her locks begin to change and swell, I would expect her locks to lose this glossy look.

I have to share with you that once her installation was completed I could not keep Hyacinth away from the mirror, she was examining her hair this way and that way and playing with it.
She chose to go home wearing 2 low bunches.

Hyacinth swims regularly so I gave her some instructions of how to keep her new Sisterlocks(TM) in tact.

Watch out for her updates.

Enjoy
