Wow! I can’t believe I’ve had my Sisterlocks for 20 months now. Look at the difference a year has made.

Wowsers!!

It will be 2 years before I know it. I definitely see some growth and maturing, although I’d hoped to see more. I’m remaining patient. My hair is so much thicker now and it’s been over 10 years since I’ve had this much hair…maybe even 15 years. I’m still retightening my own hair, but I’m gonna get a professional to handle it in December. I think I’m gonna try Oyin’s Greg Juice. Meika gave it a rave review and I was very satisfied with the products i ordered from them years ago. That Funk Butter was the business!!
Once I hit the 2 year mark, I’m using my own shampoo. Well maybe I should say I’ll use my own in combination with the SL shampoo. I don’t really have a problem with the product; I just want something different in my head.

Now for the pics…

I should get some of Brunsli’s hair ties now. I love my Soft Spikes too. I’m learning how to get more curl versus just a bend using the Spikes. I’ve started flat-twisting and wearing little ponytails. I’m trying to be more versatile with all this hair! My daily “style” is just pulling it away from my face and securing both sides with 2 bobby pins. That’s fancy. lol I’m just so happy with my hair. 🙂

Lookin’ great Ms. Coop. I’m anxious for mine to get that long! I go for a (long overdue) tightening on Sunday.

Good luck with that. Cherish that short stage while you can. Once it starts growing it’s like weeds. Or kudzu.

I get the weeds similie more than the kudzu. No idea what that is! lol

Wait a minute…..you said you expected more growth?! You’ve have a tremendous amount of growth since your install and your locks are looking fierce!

My hair is also thicker and longer than it’s been ever! Aren’t Sisterlocks amazing?! Keep eating the way you are and doing what you’re doing, cause your glowing and your locks are gorgeous.

2 years is right around the corner!!! WOOHOO!!!!

Awwww! Thanks! These 2 years have absolutely flown by. I’m so glad I saw folks blogging before I started so I was inspired to take pictures. I wouldn’t believe it if I didn’t see it myself.

A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment.
I believe that you should publish more about this subject, it may not be
a taboo subject but usually people do not discuss these topics.

To the next! Many thanks!!
