I really value how transparent Brttiania718 is about her Sisterlocks journey—the good, the bad, and the oops! I’ve been following her journey since I started my Sisterlocks and mine probably would have been just as long as hers if I didn’t cut ’em.

She is so beautiful and her styles are endless! Even though she does not have Sisterlocks, her hair is simply interlocked, I love the versatility she shows with her hair and it reminds me of the size of my Sisterlocks.

So I was almost one that would have removed sisterlocks because I have always adored self maintenance & mine weren’t doing what I thought they would by year 2. Now after being locked for 4 years I am glad I held on. I’ve learned that our hair is unique and whether wearing traditional, micros, interlocked or twists there’s beauty in the journey. Sisterlocks really fit my career life and schedule. Maybe I’ll never have time to do my own retightenings but I’m so glad there’s more consultants, & I know my training is inevitable. lad

Yes, after 2-3 years, once the locs really mature, they are so beautiful and versatile— the beauty is definitely in the journey.

Love you on youtube and this blog. Just an FYI the 4th woman with the red hair is not sisterlocked. She did them herself with her fingers and nappy lock tool. They do look amazing. She was on youtube for a quick minute patience edet I believe.

I just don’t know.
