Last weekend marked 14 months into my Sisterlock journey. I'm still clipping away a few permed ends. I find they are mostly towards the front top area. Otherwise I think about 95% or more has curly q's on the end. At my last retightening I asked Gregory Day if they would lock, and he stated they would. I'm excited to notice the change in my locks, they are getting thicker and feeling more like locks instead of that pattern feel through the length of the locks. I still lurk some of my favorite blogs to see others journey's as well and learn from them. I even try to do a little styling here and there after watching a few YouTube vid's. I'm not as talented as some of these wonderful lockers, but I try. My next retightening is later this month. By that time I will have approached month 15. Time is flying by. As each month passes during this journey, I'm also getting closer to earning my bachelor degree in Psychology. Therefore I'm on multiple journeys. I'm also getting more serious about my health and exercising more and eating less bad foods. I think all these things will help my overall self and I'm excited about it. Have a few more pics for you all. If you are researching locking, Sisterlocks is a wonderful method, but their are other methods too. I suggest doing your research, ask questions, lurk blogs and do all the mentioned again. This is a lifestyle change, not just a hairstyle, at least for me it is. I'm proud to be a woman of color and I embrace every thing about myself.
Love, peace, and no hair grease.
