My name is Terez Howard, and I maintain this Sisterlocks blog, as well as its parent site at Naturalicious Hair. I started this blog to help naturalistas see what Sisterlocks are all about and to encourage fellow Sisterlocked sisters to maintain healthy hair care.
I am currently a freelance writer/editor and AdSense publisher. My past jobs have included being an editor at a newspaper as well as writing for various newspapers, magazines, blogs and websites.
I am a wife to a professional violinist trapped in an orchestra teacher’s body and a 3-year-old daughter going on 30.
And My Sisterlocks…
My Sisterlocks were born on Oct. 29, 2010 from two consultants, Chasrah Gomer and Roxanne Ray, working in my hair for 13 hours. I actually had 7 to 8 inches of natural hair, with some spots reaching 12 inches. Because of the uneveness, I got well-needed haircut and ended up with about 5 to 6 inches of natural hair when installation began.
I decided to get Sisterlocks for a few reasons. First, they look beautiful. I liked the neatness of the parting and the way that the interlocking method made individual locs appear. Second, I knew I would have a huge variety of styling options. I could do anything with Sisterlocks that I did with my loose natural hair, except for a fro. Third, I also knew my hair would grow well. I had a very heavy hand when it came to detangling my hair, and I got easily impatient with knots and tangles.
I’m so excited to share my Sisterlocks journey with you.
