Frizzies be Gone!!

So you've had your locks for some years now and you keep all your appointment for lock grooming but it seems that you can't get rid of that frizz no matter what you ! Well no fear the answer is quite simple. It's called a "Fire Trim". It can be done on cultivated locks as well as Sisterlocks as long as your locks are "Mature". By mature I mean at least 3 years old depending on the texture of your hair. "Fire Trimming" is simply running a lit candle along the length of each lock while the hair is damp. Do not do it on dry hairbecause you will burn your hair off!! As you run the candle along the lock all the stray hairs will be scorch off leaving a perfect neat stray hair free lock. Just lightly run the candle along the length of the hair do not stop or hold the candle in one spot to long. The time to do it is after your hair has been shampooed; that way your hair is free of any product build-up and it will retain moisture longer than if you just used a spray bottle to wet your hair. You will notice that your locks will "tighten up" and it will become stronger too. The Fire Trims act as a cleanser or your locks if you have any lint or trapped grease it be melted away with this technique. Don't try to do this yourself; you don't want candle wax to drip in your eyes-nnot pretty!

Sisterlocks Life and Style

Sisterlocks has been a blessing to me in more ways than I can count. It has allowed me to embrace my tightly textured hair completely. The times when I do go to the beauty supply store, they look at me and my hair and ask whereI got it from. Its so funny! I say, from me! It's my own hair!

Dr. Cornwell has given us Sisterlock wearers a new "religion". A new way to live of ,for, and by one another.

I've been cultivating my Sisterlocks for 4 years now. Unfortunately, I have not taken pics of my various stages, but I do have recent pics of my new layer cut which was prompted by my pregnancy. I was feling down and wanted a whole new look. I will probably let it continue growing now that I'm not ravaged by pregnancy hormones anymore!

Coloring my Locks

<# thoughts of the day>

I am thinking of coloring my hair again. Right now it's a beautiful cranberry color,but I've been thinking of highlighting the front part some more. I want a summer color. I learn the hard way that locks are very sensitive to lighter colors and even after you have washed the color out, the color can cause degeneration of the locks. I take great care when coloring; I try not to overlap on the color which can cause weak spots. I would suggest that anyone coloring their hair in light like light blonde should use color instead of bleach. Bleach can cause locks to "pop" or pull apart like straw.

If you use semi permanent colors I found that Avatar is very good,and it doesn't fade fast at all. Great for relaxed hair too!

Sisterlocks Life and Style

I love giving natural sistas an alternative way to style their hair. I too know what it's like to be a slave to tight uncomfortable weaves and braids. I also know what its like to lose my hair from these techniques. Sisterlocks in the greatest system ever made for natural hair. No more having to duck when it rains, or sit through painful weaving techniques. No more waiting to wash my hair for fear of messing up my style. Hollayula!!!
