5 Years

5 Years ago I decided to take my hair in hand and began my journey into Sisterlocks(TM). Who would have thought that 5 years later I would go on to become a certified Consultant myself bringing my craft to others? I am still thrilled by seeing the look on my clients faces when I hold up the mirror.

 Here is a length check and I admit to taking up the scissors, just a little snip here and there to cut off some stragglers. I will try to wait until year 6 for the main cut but would like to cut a least 4-6 inches off then.
I want to cut back to my shoulders as I think I managed my hair better at this length.  I tend to be accident prone and am constantly catching my ends on my hand bag, seat belt and clothing lol

I am really getting used to the two tone look now and have not returned to colour. Below is a picture of my freshly washed hair but I need a retightening,
My regime remains the same, in the summer I wash every week or more depending on how often I have been to the gym, in the winter I wash monthly, yes you heard right old habits die hard.  I still braid and band to wash my hair as I find it easier to control my hair that way. I try to deep condition every month but sometimes this is every 8 weeks just before I retighten. I had started to do retighten every 4 weeks but I think this is too much manipulation for my hair and I don't have the time any more.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures and what ever your hair journey, I wish you seasons greetings and a happy journey hair for 2013.

Am so excited i found people like you living around me here in London or in the uk for that matter. There is lots of this love(for natural hair) on the internet but most people are in the USA.
