Its been 4 days now since my hair was locked and I am loving
every minute and inch of it. My website has been down for the past week or so, so I haven't been able to add any updates so
far. So to recap the last few days...
My hair was officially locked in the Sisterlocks method this
past weekend October 11 & 12. My consultant, Alva, did a wonderful job and I am pleased with the results. I really love
the body and freedom my hair has now. In the mornings, i wake up, shake, and go. Not a whole lot of maintenance so far. But
just in case, Alva gave me the rollers, setting lotions, and everything else that I'd need to style my hair for the next few
months. I love my sisterlocks and its really neat to sit back and imagine what my fully locked will look like someday. Alva
says that my hair will take a very long time to lock due to its texture and though I profess to have the patience of Job,
I pray that it starts to lock within the next five months so I can cut off my relaxed hair on my birthday, March 10.
Here's some photo's I took later that evening after my hair

Random photo, no reason...just because
I wanted to post it. (Okay, actually I was feeling kinda cute that day)

So far Week 3 hasn't been much different from Weeks 1& 2.
I washed my hair for the first time at the end of week 2 and surprisingly enough...it wasn't to bad. The worst part is all
the braiding and banding, it is rather time consuming. I do think that my hair is filling in a little bit, the parts don't
seem so noticeable (actually, they weren't that noticeable to begin with)
Afterwards, I did an herbal rinse and braided it back up to
form bantu knots ( I tried rolling it, but that was nothing cute!). I let it dry overnight. It was so curly! Since the curls
fell a bit, I have decided that I really like this hairstyle. Its still amazing to me that I haven't used any heat or products
(Other than a tiny bit of SL Moisture Treatment on my scalp, SL Getting Started Shampoo, Nizoral Shampoo, and an Herbal Rinse).
I am really, really getting anxious now for my locks to mature. I am going to Alva for my follow up this week. Once they start
growing and finally touching my shoulders...you want be able to tell me nothing! Anyway, here's some week 3 photos of my new
bantu knotout hairstyle...
