3 Years

Happy birthday to me. My Sisterlocks (TM) are now 3 years old. Picture below are week old curls made by spritzing and braiding at night. You can really see the length here.

My sides are getting in the way now and have been getting caught up in my hand bag strap, when I am eating and working at my desk or computer so I have broken a few locks at my hair line, (pics to follow) without realising it. Now when driving I tie my hair out of the way of the seat belt and when eating or working at my desk.
Diamante pins support the front roll.
I find that I am braiding my hair less and tending to wear it down more.

Just thought I would put in a pic of my favourite style which is me wearing curls.
My challenges this year have been not knowing how to care for my hair during adverse weather conditions. This is the worst winter that England has had for over 100 years so no one was prepared and apparently there is more snow to come GROAN...
I am a sun worshiper and so are my locks...
I have learnt never to go out with wet hair otherwise this can cause mildew and breakage.
To increase my moisturizer to daily spritzing.
Always go out wearing a hat even if this is to go to and from my car as this protects my locks from the harsh winter wind which can do as much damage as cold rain and snow.
My Goals:
I want to do more styles with my hair. I noticed that when my hair was shorter I made more of an effort.
To increase my retightening regime to 6 instead of 8 weekly as my hair seems to be going through a growth spurt.
To be better at doing monthly deep conditioning as I have become busy these have been neglected.
Finally to have healthy, long hair...
Hope you enjoyed these.
