    Love, love, love your sisterlocks! I’ve had mine for a little over 2 years, and it is the best hair decision I’ve made.

    Hi… your hair looks so beautiful. I’ve been thinking about locing my hair also but I’m just trying to get some info before I do. how often do you have to re-do your hair? and is there any special hair regimen you have for taking care of your locs?

      Thanks Diana :-)
      Locs go through stages we all work with what we have. My bad hair days with Locs are good hair days when relaxed. Keep your chin up :-)

    I have obsessed over sisterlocks for a good while. I kept looking at your photos and I finally had mine done yesterday :-). Thanks for inspiring a Kenyan sister!

    Love your locs. I am 6 weeks into my locs. The best hair decision I have ever made in my 60 years of life. Shout out to my awesome loctician Donna Lewis in the lowcountry area of North Charleston.
