Retightened at 21 Months

I thought I would show you a shot of my after being tightened. This shows that I will soon need to colour as the greys are starting to show hence the darker colour at the crown of my head.

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.

21 Months

Hi all this is a braid style that I wore to the gym. I do this when I want a crinkly or wavy look.

This is the side view and I still have blond temples.
Back view.

The final look.

This is the final result and my favourite look.
I hope you like it.

Hair Politics

Hi there this is me at 21 months. I have become interested in hair politics. I have started to make my own products., spritzes, scalp oils and would like to branch out into shampoos and conditioners next.

Now that I am natural I wondered who makes and owns the products that I have used and continue to use in terms of the black economy.

African and Caribbean people make up only a small percentage of people in the UK however we are responsible for most of the sales in terms of false and real hair, hair care products and accessories.
I expected to find that the spread of ownership and wealth would represent many diferent peoples... I was wrong.

Check out the links to see what I found out:

Stay happy in your naturalness.
