I took these pictures back in October. My hair is dripping wet from a shampooing. At that time, I had worn my microlocs for four years. I only say that in the past tense because now I have had my microlocs for four years and three months. You didn’t think that I cut out my microlocs. Did you? Anyways, life has been extraordinarily busy. Even though I don’t update often, I have been wearing my locs in several different styles. I still love them!
I would say that I have come a long way in these past four years.
By Terez Howard Since I got my iPad, I have been addicted to one particular type of selfie, as you can see below. I feel like I am finally seeing some growth! My hair has officially reached its longest length now. I have had my locs for 3 1/2 years.

I plan to complete my retightening next weekend since my schedule has been so busy. What I’ve learned about my hair: I’m not particularly keen on my hair without a curl, curve or wave. It dries stiff and lifeless. In the 3-year photos below, I took these shots right out of the shower. You might notice droplets in my hair. My hair has grown about 3 inches over the past year.

By Terez Howard You might remember Kimberly’s interview last year. Check out how she’s doing now! How have you been enjoying your Sisterlocks? I absolutely LOVE my Sisterlocks. The freedom of NOT having to “do” my hair so often is liberating! I’m a full-time student completing my degree in music education, and hairstyling is not high on my totem pole of to-do’s. Do you have any new developments with your hair? I haven’t had any major developments with my locs besides growth. I did get them colored by my consultant back in December 2012. She used the Chi color system, which worked great on my hair. I thankfully haven’t experienced any drying or breakage. I also stopped banding around May
