My Sisterlocks are far from perfect in the sense of uniformity, but they’re perfect for my personality. I don’t intentionally try to be different, it just seems to happen that way and that it pretty much how my Sisterlocks are growing.
Right now, at 21 months into my journey, I think I have almost every phase in my head, from loose and no where near budding to solid bud and loc. So in case you thought my Sisterlocks were “perfect” or all loc’ing and budding at the same pace, let me give you a closer view…
This is one of my favorite locs. It is fully budded on the ends and solid, but it has that curve in it that makes it fun to play with, LOL.
This is one of my Sisterlocks that has been loose up until just recently and I started noticing her trying to form a bud.
This is how a lot of my Sisterlocks in front look, bunched and loose ends. My hair texture in the front is really soft and this is a result of my soft hair trying its hardest to intertwine in loc.
This is another loc from the front area. The loc itself is just as skinny as the day I got them installed, but there is a little bud on the end, LOL.
This loc is from the side of my head and as you can see, more bunching and a bud has yet to fully form.
All the Sisterlocks on the nape of my neck are like this…solid and fully budded. That nappy kitchen area, LOL.
I also have a few Sisterlocks like this, where the bud has formed in the middle. I’ve debated cutting that little skinny piece after the bud off, but a last they’re hanging in there, LOL.
Often times I hear from people about how jealous they are of my Sisterlocks and/or how they wish their Sisterlocks or Locs were “like mine”, but my response is always to embrace your nu growth. Remember everyone’s hair grows differently and uniquely, enjoy your journey and your growth!
