The Sisterlock Training Class, Learning & Laughter

Well I took the Sisterlock Consultant Training class and guess who helped teach the class 2 out of the 4 days that I was there........

That's right! Dr. Cornwell herself! This women has got to be one of the most down to earth, funny, intellectual people that I have ever met. She is really cool and so funny!

Dr Cornwell's sisters and niece helped teach the class as well and they all have a wonderful sense of humor and made the class so enjoyable. I felt so privileged to be taught by the originator of Sisterlocks and her family. I learned so much.

It was so many different kinds of Sisterlocks there. There were colored locks........

Long Flowing Locks................

Short Cute Locks......................

Caucasian Locks....................

All of the locks were beautiful and original.

During the four days, friends were made and so much was learned. It was really a fantastic experience that allowed me to learn not only the Sisterlock method but so so much more!

Until next time, Love and blessings to everyone!

18 &19 Months, Curls, Crinkles, & My Lovely Sisterlocks

Hey sisterlock fam! Its been a little while. Just wanted to show you pics of what?!..........My hair of course. LOL! Everything is going pretty good with my locks. They are locking more each month. My growth seems to be stunted because of the locking process so my hair pretty much looks the same length wise. But to me it looks more like locks instead of little braids now days. Which I am happy with. The back of my hair is fully locked but the front from the ear forward is still in the locking process. I am taking the Sisterlock class next week so I will be able to at least touch up the areas that are still locking and become really loose and not have to wait until my retightening appointment. I think that will help a lot. I am still not sure if I am going to be a DIYer. My hope is to become certified and do other peoples hair. Then sit back and watch them enjoy their hair as much as I do since I sisterlocked my hair. Choosenvessel hipped me to the lavender water on her blog and let me tell you, I love the stuff. It makes my hair smell heavenly. My hair is so bouncy and full of body. I do nothing but wash with sisterlocks starter shampoo twice a month, deep condition once a month with sisterlocks conditioner and lightly spritz with water & oil mixture everyday. I have only tried Carol's daughter Tui Hair oil and the sisterlock brand oil. I like them both. I always dilute the oil with water though. FYI, I do not mix the lavender water with oil. I use that alone. So some days water is all I use. To style my hair in updo's hair pins are my best friend. It is so easy. Most of my up do's are just by me throwing my hair up and pinning. Then I will look in the mirror and say "hey not bad" Well enough talk and on to the pics of styles and even some freestyling. I missed a couple of months blogging, but I still took pics. So here are some pics from my 18th and 19th month. I could not get the slide show to post simutaneously with this so the slide show is in the post below.

PS The 2nd day wet set is after I played tennis and was sweating my behind off. My curls were still on point. I love sisterlocks!!!

As always
Love peace and blessings :-)
