Here is a photo journey of my first year! I have tried many different hairstyles, but I am a freestyle girl. I usually just wash and go. Sisterlocks makes that process much easier. YAY to my first year and many more.
This photo (below) shows me about 1 year prior to Sisterlocks:
This was shows my initial install in May 2007. I have micro/small Sisterlocks all over:
This shows me at 3 months. I loved my Sisterlocks but wasn't use to seeing so much scalp. I was used to looking like a lioness. See Afro pic above. LOL! I was really in a turquoise mood too.
This is me after 4 months. I hated my scalp showing and learned styles to cover it. Like the half up pony and the chignon. I was seriously peeved about finding certain consultants horrible when looking for someone good retighten.
This is after I Dye d my hair black right at the six month mark. It looks more like locks and less like braids in this picture.
Here I am at 8 months. I really was starting to like the fullness returning. Can you tell I need I retightening here? I really enjoy how it looks right before a retightening. Really messy and without all the grids.
At 9 months, rolling around on my mom's carpet. Can you tell I am so over lint? I hate having to wrap my hair or only use black towels. My solution is a nice Naturtint dye over every 6 months. This was like a week after a retightening. And I had just about split all the locks some consultants combined.
Here I am rocking the fiercest Mohawk known to natural hair at 11 months. It was really tight on my scalp, but I loved the way it looked. I wore it for about a week.
And here I am today at 13 months. Because it's like 90 degrees in the shade, I rock the pom-pom as my co-worker calls it. I think most of us know it as the pineapple.
