I’m SUPER excited about having this blog!! Crazy huh? It doesn’t take much to make me happy. Imagine how happy that makes my husband. LOL I decided to go natural November 2009. My last relaxer was October 2009. I’ve been transitioning for about 5 months now. My hairstyles during transitioning have been bantu knot outs, twistouts and using the flat-iron. I’m not a fan of fake hair so braids, sew ins, wigs, etc. NONE of those are options for me. I think women look good with what God gave them naturally! To each, her own. While I’ve been transitioning I’ve discovered sisterlocks. Sisterlocks are NOT dreadlocks. Sisterlocks are micro locks. No hair extensions! They’re very versatile. Any style you do with relaxed hair you can do with sisterlocks. The reason I love sisterlocks so much is b/c you don’t have to do the BC (Big Chop) to get them installed. You can start sisterlocks with 1 1/2 inches of new growth. As your natural hair grows, your relaxed ends are trimmed off in time. Also as your hair grows you go in for a re-tighten about every 4-6 weeks depending on how fast your hair grows. You want your hair to look neat and fresh unlike some people’s dreadlocks. UGH!! So I have decided to get sisterlocks as you’ve probably already figured out. I’ll be going to God Given Beauty Natural Hair Salon in Gastonia, NC. (www.godgivenbeauty.com) On March 30, 2010, I’ll be getting my test locks and then on April 5th and 6th I’ll have my locking session. I’m sisterlock bound! LOL I’m so excited!!! Goodbye to bad hair days! Goodbye to going to bed with rollers all over my head! Goodbye to being afraid to get my hair wet AND goodbye to having to spend HOURS on my hair after washing it!! GOODBYE!
