My Sisterlocks Journey – A Look At The Past 9 Months

By Terez Howard

In a recent post, I talked about my Sisterlocks’ growth and how it’s difficult to see the changes my natural hair is making.  You don’t know how much your hair is changing until you see photos of yourself side-by-side.  Check this out!

How Much Does It Cost To Maintain Sisterlocks?

I received the following e-mail last week: Hi Terez, I was on your blogsite about your hair. Your hair is gorgeous by the way—and your site is very informative. I just wanted to know a little more about the expense of sisterlocks. Aside from the initial expense, how much does it cost to maintain them. I am really thinking seriously about getting the sisterlocks but I don’t want to be out of a couple hundred dollars every month. Thanks for your time. Shay Frazier This was my response: Thanks so much for the compliment. After the initial expense, you pay for retightenings every 6 to 8 weeks, depending on your hair type, the number of locs you have and how

Sisterlocks Growth – When Will My Locs Drop?

By Terez Howard Patience is a virture. I recently read a post from one of my favorite Sisterlocks bloggers, Blaq Kofi, who reminded me not to stress over my Sisterlocks growth.  She talked about the Sister we become during all of the stages of our Sisterlocks.  I’ve noticed three things about myself and my ever evolving natural hair. First off, I have become very proud of my natural hair.  I don’t need chemicals or any other straightening process to make me feel decent to walk out of the house for the day.  I have always been proud of being natural.  But it’s different now.  Before with my natural hair, I felt stuck in a cycle of boring natural hairstyles.  Now,

Ever Have Your Sisterlocks Mistaken For Twists, Braids, Weave, Etc.?

By Terez Howard When I was on vacation, a woman came up to me and said that she loved my hair.  I smiled and said thank you.  Who doesn’t love a compliment? Then, she went on to say that her friend had been trying to do twists, but she just could not get them right.  She said that my hair was the way twists, or “twisties,” as she put it, should be.  I thanked her again, and then in my kindest voice, replied, “Well, I have Sisterlocks.” She nodded and kept right on talking about my cute hair until the gas ran out in her motor mouth, and she walked away. I don’t mind if someone thinks my natural hair

What To Expect With Sisterlocks Retightenings

By Terez Howard Ah.  I love a fresh retightening.  My Sisterlocks look so neat and beautiful after one.  Within a couple weeks, they reach my favorite stage.  The roots fill in that initial scalpiness, but the roots aren’t so long that they’re unkempt. When I think of my actual Sisterlocks retightenings, the first thing that comes to mind are headaches.  I’m not saying that my consultant is hard on my head.  She says that Sisterlocks clients seem to be tender headed.  I know I can’t stand the pain. But here’s what I really think.  Two things.  First, have you ever seen a Sisterlocks retightening?  Digging that Sisterlocks tool into your scalp is going to pinch a little bit.  Youtuber Mizsamone shows
