To Color or Not to Color, That is the Queston

I will soon be at my 2 year lock anniversary. Time flies!

I am contemplating getting color when I hit my 2 year mark next month, but I'm not sure. I have seen varying degrees of results with Sisterlocks and color, and I'm not sure I'm ready to take the leap yet. I have seen differences in hair texture and breakage as a result, so I may not be willing to take that risk.

I did buy some henna some months back but am concerned about build up and my hair turning orange. I may consider doing a rinse to see how that works since it's only temporary. Anyone with experience/advice on color, please msg me.

I am in an experimentation phase with styling. I wanted more of a wrap look, so I got some large rollers but they didn't work that well. I have started using a curling iron on a low heat setting just to get a bend in the front of my hair for bangs and to frame my face. Everyone thinks I got a hair cut :-)

I am going to try to limit the heat on my hair, but I haven't seen any adverse effects from using the curling iron yet. I have noticed if the setting is too high, it can flatten your locks out some, especially locks that haven't matured yet. That happened to a few of mine but after I washed my hair they were back to normal. Also, the curl is so loose it doesn't hold up for long, maybe a day or so, and you can forget it if it's raining or humid.

I haven't done a roller set in a while but I also invested in a hair dryer so I don't have to always wait hours (or overnight) for a set. I still have yet to use it, especially since I got the curling iron around the same time.

My hair is still growing slowly at its own pace, but I'm still loving the journey. I will post more pics soon.
