Confession: I Don’t Always Listen To My Consultant

By Terez Howard

I have a confession.  I don’t always listen to my consultant. *GASP!

I actually hate to admit that because I really respect what my Sisterlocks consultant has to say.  I realize and appreciate that her knowledge on Sisterlocks far exceeds my own.  She’s seen a variety of hair types and knows the best route to take with hair.

But once, I veered from her advice.

Working out with Sisterlocks

I try to stay in shape with a combination of running, walking, Pilates and weight lifting.  I get very sweaty.  New Sisterlocks don’t do well with excessive wetness.  So, my consultant suggested I loosely cornrow or flat twist my hair.  I faithfully did so for about three months into my journey.

I work out five days per week, and that cornrow/twisting routine got old.  I decided that I was going to be lazy and not do it.  I instead put a headband around my hair to keep it off my sweaty neck.  My hair didn’t seem to suffer.

The next retightening came along, and I asked my consultant if I still needed to cornrow or twist when I exercised.  “Oh, no,” she said.  She told me that it would suffice to wear a headband or pull my hair back loosely with a hair tie… exactly what I was doing!

I don’t recommend it

I don’t recommend veering off your consultant’s course.  That said, you know YOUR hair.  If you make a mistake with it, you will have to pay for it.  If you do something and it works, well, it works.  Whatever your choice, it’s your hair.

What You Should Know About Swimming With Sisterlocks

By Terez Howard Here in Ohio, we had temperatures in the 100’s, unusual highs for the summer.  With all that heat, a dip in the pool was inevitable.  And no, you don’t have to stay out of the pool when you have Sisterlocks. When you’re swimming with new Sisterlocks, you should: 1. Protect your ends.  You braid and band when you shampoo your Sisterlocks.  The same holds true when you submerge.  My consultant said cornrows or flat twists also would be acceptable, just so my ends were protected. 2. Wear a swim cap if you aren’t going to braid or twist.  This also holds true if your Sisterlocks are too short to cornrow or flat twist.  You probably don’t want to
