I got some of my relaxed ends cut off my sisterlocks on November 23, my 7th retightening. I wasn’t able to cut all the relaxed ends off because my hair hasn’t fully locked. (It’s starting to lock though. 🙂 ) I don’t want to risk my locks unraveling at the ends. Right after getting my hair cut and looking in the mirror I thought, “What have I done!” I’ve never had short hair before so this was new to me. The night that I got it cut I went home and rolled my hair with my lock loops. In the morning I was loving my hair again. LOL I guess I just needed to see it with some curls. 🙂 After my cut it was an adjustment when going to bed. I was use to pulling my sisterlocks into one ponytail. Welllllllllllll, I can’t do that now. LOL I tried pinning my hair up but that didn’t work. SO I started putting my hair in TWO ponytails, one on top of my head and one in the back of my head. Works great!!
Since I’ve cut my sisterlocks I’ve tried out some different styles. I like my hair more and more after the cut. I guess I just needed to play with it some at its new length. 🙂
Here are some photos the day after I cut my sisterlocks.
