Merry Christmas...

I hope everyone had a very merry christmas, and remembers "Jesus is the reason for the season". I enjoyed having fun with my family. We know how to come together and have a good ole time. I think I really spoiled the kids this year too, I just enjoy seeing them happy. They got up really early, and crashed quick (as you can see :))

I have a big week for me comming up, nothing bur retights... I will post pics of my favorites as soon as I get a chance.

I also got to put a rinse on my locks... I mixed two colors, cherry and cinnamon, it came close to the normal cherrywood that I dye my hair with every 14 months. I just colored my locks in March, but the color had fadded tremendously. Check it out:

9th Installation... ER visit

Installation number 9 was completed this weekend. This client will be transitioning from perm. She has a beautiful blond at the end, which eventually will become beautiful blond tips...

I also have been experiencing a rough week with an ER visit with my little one. In case you don't know "children are scary", especially little ones. My youngest has been experiencing off and on fevers, and then they thought she had diabetes. They had to transfer her to Childrens Hospital. After all the numerous, and horrific testing the diabetes scare was a false alarm. Thank God! A lot of prayers went up that night, and a lot of blessings came down. She is fine now (my perfect little Angel)

8th Installation...

I love new clients! Here are pics of install number 8. I have been doing a lot of multitasking lately. Me and my 12 year old are about to go into business together, I will share details of that venture in a later post. Today, I just needed a mental break so I took off today to do some Christmas Shopping! I have another install scheduled this weekend so I will be posting pictures of that one next week. ENJOY!!

7th Installation...

My 7th install was my personal projecta. This beautiful sister has about approximately 16 inches of natural hair. I will repeat that "16-INCHES-OF-NATURAL-HAIR". I am truly happy of the results. We broke the sitting time down to 3 days, and watched every episode of the first season of "House".

BTW... my sisterlocks special is coming to an end. The last day to take advantage of the 10% off package ends December 15. All I require is that the consultation be done by that date. Call me (301)653-3708

Take a look and ENJOY!

Sisterlocks Revolution... We did it B.I.G.

This weekend was the Sisterlocks Revolution, Baltimore and Beyond! I got to the event at 11:00AM and the parking lot was full... Sistah girl had to park across the street at a church. I got to see so many sisterlocked ladies that I have met over the years from past meet ups and events, and a lot of folks recognized me from my blog and website. The whole event was well coordinated. It was great seeing some of my North Carolina folks that came up to volunteered.

Sandra the "lock STAR" aint no joke!! She was styling hair left and right, it was good to see her in person, she came up from North Carolina as well.

Everone locks were fierce... whether they were 9 years old of 9 weeks old. The DMV did their thang.

I was also excited to see two of my clients at the event, and I am so glad that they have come home to sisterlocks. I got home about midnight because me and a few others kept the party going. We got to do it again next year, and do it bigger. I got one retightening to do today. Until next time...

Whew... Lot's and Lot's of Hair!

The above pics are right before me and my hubby went out to dinner... as you can tell, I needed a retightening. But its all good.

I have been doing a lot of sisterlocks, and I am loving every minute of it. This weekend is the Sisterlocks Revolution here in the DMV. I encourage everyone to attend if you can. I have an Ad for the Sisterlocks Revolution so hopefully I can gain more sisterlock newbies. I will post more pics of my clients soon. So look out for those, and of course I will be blogging about the Revolution.

Here is a peek of one of my clients that would normally color her gray. The beginning stages of sisterlocks are very crucial, so we are allowing the grey hair to grow in, and maybe within 6mos - 1yr I can give her the "OK" to color. For right now, we are just treating these locks like babies!

Oh... and one last thing... I rolled my hair up. This is the 3rd time that I have done that this year. I even surprised myself with the urge to do that. I am still rocking the curls, these pics are from day one, but I am rocking them going on a little over two weeks now. ENJOY!

loving her locks & Bundling...

I am loving her locks, she is adhering to my advice, and doing everything that she is suppose to be doing to these lovely baby locks...


On a side note...I can not stress the importance of Bundling your locks. Bundling is a requirement in the early stages of sisterlocks. Bundling will reduce the amount of slippage, and unraveling to your locks. Two of my clients had this serious issue this weekend. Everytime I would ask have you bundled your locks, and the response is always NO...

Last night I felt like it was an install all over again, on 10 week old locks. I have a salon sink and I include washing in my price, but some like to do it on their own. I can understand wanting to wash your hair when you feel that it needs to be washed, but bundling is something that I point out at the consultation, the locking session and retightenings.

So if you are interested in sisterlocks, you have to be willing and able to listen to your consultant. Your consultant can help you in making sure your locks settle. So for everyone out there in blogger land.... BUNDLE YOUR BABY LOCKS!!!!!

Qualified to do sisterlocks??? 6th Install

This is really a two part post. First I want to chime in on the fact that not everyone that say they "do sisterlocks" does sisterlocks (TM). My new client came to me after she had what she thought was sisterlocks.

When getting sisterlocks, or even thinking about sisterlocks... we must always do our RESEARCH! And I can not express the fact that the sisterlocks Web site is the first place to go to do your research. A certified consultant or qualified trainee can be found on the site, and there are a lot of pictures and even a Q and A.

My 6th install was actaully a referral from another client that I installed. The young lady had these installed in Jamaica in August. She is also transitioning from a perm.

She took down what was in her hair, and I then worked my magic on the two day install. I cut 1/2 inch of perm off, and hope to transition her within the next two to three months. Some of the hair on her sides were broken off from perms and braids, if this is temporary hair loss, I will then lock the hair as time passes. I will be posting a lot on this client to show her progress over time. I even did a roller set for her to give it some style!

Below are before and after photos...

5th Installation

Install #5. This was my first client who was tranisitioning from perm. Her last perm was in April and she had about 2 inches of new growth. I want to try to transition her completely in about 4 to 6 months. For styling, we will be rolling her hair with sponge rollers and just water to give her some curls. Due to unforseen circumstances we also had to do her install at her home. I can't wait to see how she progresses.
