Mama I made it!
This past Sunday, I celebrated my two-year Sisterlocks anniversary. The pros: Little to no maintenance and product usage, extraordinary hair growth, and hair envy. The cons: Pricey, takes long to lock (depending on hair texture), extraordinary hair growth, and hair envy.
In contraast to the Sisterlocks police, I maintain my hair by washing with cheap clarifying shampoo every two weeks, dye every five weeks (right before my tightening), moisturize with rose water and Naked Tonic Curl Renew twice a week, and sleep with a satin scarf.
My hair has doubled in length, is thicker but not fully locked. However, I am out of the banding stage (Note: It is recommended that hair is banded or braided prior to washing when hair has not locked). I have no regrets (see “extraordinary hair growth and hair envy” reference).
