It's Real

My journey from pressed and straight hair to the world of locks but not just any locks...Sisterlocks!

LaMonica's New Hair Color

I'm glad I took my camera to work the other day. I walked in and saw LaMonica's latest color and had to take some photos of her. My girl is always rocking a vibrant color but this color is so off the HOOK! I love it!!!! She is still my Sisterlock Idol.


I hate I didn't get the opportunity to travel to The Big Apple with the Sisterlock sistahs back in June but I was able to go on my own. It was such a nice trip and The Color Purple was awesome!!! There is so much diversity in that city. I saw people of all colors wearing traditional locks, lock extensions, and braids. I didn't see anyone wearing Sisterlocks though:-( I had several people ask me "are those Sisterlocks?" Finally, no one is asking "what is that?" or "are those braids?"

Trying to stay cool

So I tried another new look for my Sisterlocks. You know I can only do so much with them because I'm not as talented as my fellow loc wearers. This look was something I stumbled upon...and I actually liked it. My locs are finally looking like locs and not "braids" as some have asked. But let me tell you, by the end of the day with this humidity in Atlanta my hair had gotten so thick up in the front that I had to move the scarf to the top of my

Beautiful Locs!

When I heard that one of my favorite musical artists was going to be performing at a nearby club I almost screamed. I absolutely love her music, style, and most of all her beautiful locks. Check us out with Goapele...we look like we could be part of her

My Updo!

I have been off of my blog for awhile. I noticed that it is almost a full-time job to keep up with a daily blog. After working all day I don’t want to see the computer when I get home.

Well, it is HOT as hell in the ATL now and I had to do something with all of these locs. It seems like they were everywhere…in my face, on my neck, in my eyes, etc. I’ve always had a complex about my FOREHEAD but it has been just too damn hot to worry about it. So I decided to try a simple ponytail. Wow, what a relief! Here are some of the responses I got from co-workers. “Krystl, you have such a nice face…why do you hide it? HUH? I don’t hide my face…it’s just that I have a head full of Sisterlocks ™. Then I heard “Krystl, you look 10 years younger.” So, now I’m thinking that I look 10 because when it’s down people say I look 20 and I’m a 30 year old grown woman. Anyway, here are some pics of the famous updo.
