It's Real

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

How did I do?












You all know I cut my hair a few months ago. Well for some reason my hair grows like weeds in the warm months. I was so frustrated with it the other day I grabbed the scissors and began cutting it myself. I have been cutting it daily for the last week. I wanted my crop do back especially since it's hot as hell here in Atlanta. I don't want any hair on my neck. So check out the pics and tell me what you think. Please keep in mind this was the first time I've ever cut my own hair. The pic with me in the green is the final cut day...lol.

Anyway love the look...you are flyy!

Nice, very nice! I am NOW waiting for the next 3yrs to go by so my hair can get the length you just cut yours "down" to. LOL

Take care~

Looks like a professional job to me. Kudos for being so brave to even attempt such a feat.

Love the cut and color!

I will be sisterloc'd soon! (Waiting for my consultant to schedule the locking sessions.)

Do you have any suggestions for a Sisterlock survival kit?

Are there any products/items you wish you had on hand when you were first loc'd (e.g., SoftSpikes, microfiber towel, styling products)? Please let me know.

I want to be sure I'm prepared for proper styling and maintenance immediately after my locking sessions.

Thanks,

MeDivine

That looks great, soror. I am loving the pink n green look as well!

I appreciate all of your comments!

Journeii - I don't mind at all!

Happiest Nappy - LOL...I don't think you want these hands in your head!

Shalilac - send me your email address and I'll send you the info.

Medivine - I'm going to be totally honest with you...I just used plain ole shampoo and water and maybe a little rosemary oil on the scalp. No survival kit here. No accessories or anything. And of course going for my retightenings every 4-6 weeks.

Thanks for the info.

You did a superb job! I notice that your ends are a little fuzzy so have you encountered a little unraveling since your cut?
