Updo at 21 Months

My Sisterlocks (TM) are now 21 months old and I can really see them progressing well. Most of them are sealed at the ends and my layers are starting to grow down slowly.

I love the freedom of never having to worry about what to do with my hair and knowing that it will always look good.

I now co wash my hair weekly (conditioner only.) Shampoo and deep condition monthly. It looks like my aversion to washing my hair has gone haha. My hair is very manageable and soft even though I colour every 8 weeks using Clairol Textures and Tones flaming desire. I steam my hair 2-3 times a week in the sauna and use coconut oil for this.

My hair grip is slightly lopsided but this is my version of an updo using this grip.

Can you believe it that my hair is now too thick to go into this properly and I think I need a larger one.
My neck is a bit twisted here but my Daughter insisted this was a good shot of my hair.
I am quite proud of this look and will do it again maybe with a larger hair grip.
Until next time keep loving your locks.

Nice! I bought a hair clamp similar to yours, but I `am loosing length because I keep cutting the tips of my locs because they have a tendency to over mat and bunch!

Kittylocks said...

Thank you Nubian locked princess. Re your ends why dont you try an experiment and leave a couple to see what happens after they have matted, its a shame for you to lose your length. Kittylocks
