9 Months!

I have made it to month 9 of my Sisterlocks journey! At my last retightening I got some good news.


I no longer have to braid and band!!!!!!! I wasn't expecting this so soon but my consultant shampooed my hair without braiding and banding and it held up fine.

I have also started doing some of my own retightening but I've stayed away from the back since I can't see back there. I made a few mistakes that I was able to correct...I retightened two locks into one (not cool) but I was able to get them apart. I am learning to feel my way around but I also just don't have the time to get through it all right now, so I will continue to go to my consultant every 4 weeks.

I am definately going to enjoy shampooing my hair this week...wish me luck!


  1. Congratulations!! Isn't it a wonderful feeling?!

  2. Congratulations! Your locks look full and beautiful in the pictures I see below. I can't wait for my locks to reach 9 months! I am just trying to remain as patient as possible. :)
