Hair is fun again!

Many people have asked why I colored my hair. The answer is very simple...I hated it! Not, my sisterlocks of course, I hated the faded color that had taken over half of my strands. Now when it first started to grow out, it was kind of cute with the two tones and all. But then I started noticing that I did not like any of the photos I took in which the color really stood out. It worked sometimes and sometimes it just didn't. Finally one day I took a picture of my hair out in the sunlight and it looked a hot mess. After that the search was on for a new color. I looked for many, many months and finally just gave up. Then this past Friday, I decided it was time to do something. I went to CVS, found a color I liked and just did it. I'm so glad I did. I look forward to styling or not and get this...going out in the sunlight. Now, having sisterlocks is fun again.

Ooooh!

I love the curls on you! How many locks did you use per SS? You didn't comb them out, did you?

Hi Brunsli--

I used about 8-10 locks per roller in the front and somewhere between 6-7 in the back. My locks are different sizes (small in the front and medium/large in the back) so it really just depended on how it felt, I pretty much grabbed bunches of the same size.

I finger combed them out a tiny bit in the front and back. I really like the look, but it took forever to roll my hair (probably about an hour or so). I was checking your blog and I really like the look the of the large SSC. I need to order those soon.

Girl, you have really worked those SS! I have never seen a more beautiful look than the way you have styled your SL'S!

Keep up the good work, you are making me anxious about my locks growing so I have have this style. And when I do, I'll dedicate it to you for the motivation!!

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Creyole!
After you asked me about the freestyling you inspired me to look at styling again. Thanks for stopping by!
