Sister Lock Installation

Yesterday and today were the big days.

Initially my consultant thought that the installation could be done in one day. But around 9:00 pm yesterday she realized that it would probably be best if we split the installation up into 2-days. She went until 12:00 a.m. yesterday and I went back at 8:00 a.m. this morning for her to finish. She finished at 11:30 a.m.!

It was a long process but the thought of the end result made it easier to get through.

Below are some photos charting my progress.

This is a picture before the big chop. In this photo I have approximately 9 inches of air dried hair.

This photo was taken right after the big CHOP! My hair was cut down to approximately 4 inches.

The next day after the big chop. I did a wash, gel and go for this one.

Here's another wash, gel and go :-)

Finally - MY SISTERLOCKS :-)

Here's another sisterlock picture, taken right after my consultant finished.

When I got home, I set them on perm rollers using "mists" of water only. I will post pictures of the results tomorrow.

CONGRATULATIONS!! They look great.
You are the first person I've seen cut off all that natural hair for their Sisterlocks. It should be well worth it.

They are going to look more and more amazing each and everyday.

Hi Misstwists. Congratulations on your brand new sisterlocks! You have a very thick, beautiful head of hair. Just curious though, why did you cut 5 inches off your hair?

Congrats! I too cut my hair to save on time and costs of the SL process, but I only cut 2-3 inches off. Your SLSs look fab already.

Why did you cut your hair first? my hair was short (I have year of hair horror stories so I won't go into detail) when I got my sisterlocks, about 2-3 inches at most. Interesting.
