Living With Sisterlocks

I have to admit, once my sisterlocks were installed I had a moment where I thought - "I can't wait for them to grow and mature so that I can wear them in some of my favorite styles." (see, for example, the styles featured on this site )

Then, I told myself not to rush the process and I made a promise to myself that I would enjoy my sisterlocks every step of the way.

So, I have come up with a style that I like for this stage. It's pretty easy to achieve. I mist my locks with water and set them on rollers. Initially, I used rollers that were too small in the front so I re-set the front using Caruso steam rollers a couple of days later.

Here's the latest picture which was taken a couple of days later.

I'll have to enlist the help of hubbie to start capturing pictures of the back :-)

oh just hang on, your babies are going to be swinging and doing their thing in NO time...the young lady you referenced under the Mystylist site her name is Calla with the fire red locs she's based in Atlanta and talk about AWEWSOME!! I bumped into her taking my daughter to get a press out at the salon and I was taken away by her hair which is what ultimately made me take the plunge and switch from traditional locs...
