Rocking my highlights! I love them and all but I will say that it changed the way my hair felt. It was harder! It is better now that I have been deep conditioning it and everything but at first I was thinking....."What have I done!" One thing that I stumbled on that REALLY helped was a steam suana. My hair loved it! And it really helped it get on the road to being back the way it was before the color. I wish I had access to one more often. Aahhh the pains of being beautiful! LOL! Stay blessed everyone! :-)

What change you say? Sista girl done went off and got hightlights! I like them but I guess I gotta get used to them. Sometimes I look at them and like them. Other times I look at them and think I need more in certain areas or wish they were all the same color. Like them or not here they are right?! LOL! BTW that is my mom in law peeking over my shoulder in the up do pic. LOL!

More pics of me and my half pony with a fresh re-tight taken about 4 months ago. And also me freestyling. Why is it that most times when I am in the mood to take pics of my hair I am sans make up?!! As usual focus on the hair! LOL

Just a quick update on my hair. Still lovin my locks. I rock curls sometimes but for the most part I wear my hair in a half pony or full pony. In the pics I am wearing the half pony. Sometimes the full pony pulls on my hair line too much so I just put the front part in a pony to get it off my face. I wear it free style a lot too. My ends still have the color that I put in my hair right before I got locks. The rest of my hair has a reddish brown rinse that I put in to cover the gray, but it is old and in need of some re-freshing. I still only wash my hair and apply a mixture of water and a small amount of oil to my hair everyday. Other than that I do nothing. Except for the occasional wet set for curls. My sisterlock consultant is really one of the best in the Detroit area. Her name is Erica Taylor and the girl is bad! She is everything in a consultant that I have read about in the blogs. I was beginning to wonder if I would ever find a consultant that is a friend as well as a consultant. When I am in her shop we talk, laugh and encourage each other. And to top it off she knows her stuff when it comes to sisterlocks! That is why my hair looks as well as it does! Since my initial installation I have had 3 consultants before I could find the right fit. But I am home to stay with Ericka! She makes my hair look so good! I have been with Ericka for the past two years. These are pics of my hair as of yesterday. My last re-tightening was approximately 2 weeks ago. I have a full schedule and there is just not enough time in the day to make a post but I was determined to do it today! LOL! I look really tired in these photos because I AM! LOL! (focus on the hair) I will post more after I re-fresh my color. Have a wonderful rest of July and be blessed. :-)

My Youngest Re-tightening Client

Although I have not put in a full installation since taking the Sisterlocks class, I have been keeping my skills sharp by doing re-tightings. Below is my youngest client. She was 4 when I first started her. But in the 5 months that I have been doing her hair she has turned 5. With her mother's permission I decided to showcase her on my blog. Introducing, Ms. Nataliea! Isn't she just the cutest!

She has soft hair that crawls, but it is coming right along. I think everyone that I know with sisterlocks had their hair lock before mine did. If my memory is correct, I believe her locks are about a year. I did not start locking until after 2 years. This is us after 6 hours of re-tightening. It takes a bit longer because of many, many,many breaks and that fact that she is really tender headed. She is a joy though. You just have to love her! And hear locks are gorgeous!
