Sisterlocks Week 2









Well This week has been a lot of fun. I have experimented quite a bit with my locks this week. I cornrowed it, and tried the braid out which as you can tell by the pic above after the cornrows did not work out well at all. But after a little manipulation I decided to try a pin-up style which ended up in the hump and the sides pined back. The hump slowly deflated as the day went on but I still like it. Ahhh I'm so please with my locks.
I have started spritzing about once every two days so my locks would be more fluid but it has made that divide between small and medium extremely obvious because as my hair shrinks the mediums really shrink up and get fat and the smalls just get the little curly cues on the end, which are soo cute might I add. Also as you can see from the braided back my grid in the back is not straight up and down. *sigh* ahh well I guess its where it transitions from small to medium. I guess nothing in life is perfect huh? I still love my sisterlocks though, they are great. Now drawbacks If I have to have another debate with another female about my hair not being really tiny two strand twist out I'm gonna scream! I mean these chicks just will not take an answer for an answer, surprisingly more guys have know that my hair was in sisterlocks that females. I plan on washing my hair tomorrow, I have not had any flakes and my scalp really isn't dry so I'm thankful for that. I hope I never go through the itches that others complain about. I want to get some essential oils just to add a scent to my hair but I'm not sure where to get them from, I have some peppermint oil but its the one that you can eat or mix in water for tea rather so I don't know if that is the same one I should use in my hair, any suggestions? I will post my braid and banding and post wash pics later in the week.
Stay blessed,
Kay

I purchased lavender essential oil at my local health food store. I like the way that it smells, but I am still searching for more.

Well you have definitely been doing more with your hair than I have. I was supposed to wash my hair Friday past (2 week mark), but then I thought I was going to the beach. Go figure! Anywho... when you find something sweet smelling let me know. BTW: Hair looks great!

Kay... how do you get your pictures side by side? Mine just keep coming out in a straight line :(

@MsNaNa: girlllll its a process, I use the small and left option and then I drag them and play with them until they line up.they line up in 3s in the edit window but they come out in 2s on here.

Isn't that funny how guys can easily recognize our SLs but some women can't? The same thing happens to me and I find it surprising but I don't make a big deal out of it. However, you should see my expression sometimes when I guy asks, "Those are SLs right? Yeah, I knew it and they look beautiful." The look on my face is 'you actually know what SLs are?' LOL!

You are definitely working those accessories and I applaud you! Headbands and flowers look so good on you too! Experimenting with different styles is fun, but limit how often you do it because you don't want to retard the locking process and you want to give your locks time to condense. Just a tip. ;-)

Yeah I my face was like huh? when they mentioned my SL, LOL now I just giggle. Thanks for the tip I try to leave it alone but its hard, the only way I like it out is straight back with a head bang and I try not to use a lot of headbands because I don't want them to always pull on my hairline. I hate the braid out as u can see from the pic above because at this length and stage the parts stay pronounced after I take them out and it looks horrible. I'm rambling I know, *sigh* Are pin-ups bad?
