Hello Loves !
Happy Easter !
It has officially been 8 Months since I’ve had my Sisterlocks installed. How do I feel? I absolutely love them ! Yes , it has been ups and downs. I do not have a loctician , and decided to maintain my locs myself. I feel much closer to them , and the bond is amazing. Now , I’m going to be honest with you all. This scalp issue of mine makes me sooooo mad. I have done every thing I can think of to control this dry scalp , but it keeps happening. Yes , I drink plenty of water, also I have used all types of dandruff shampoos, still dry scalp. Now tell me , is it true that with sisterlocks this can last up to a year your first year ? It’s totally embarrassing sometimes to scratch. ” Excuse me , while I make it snow “. Lmao.
Well here are a few pics of my locs now
Major growth right? I know ! Lmao. I can not wait to see how long they will be August 13th 2017. I will officially be a year. I will make sure to come bk and post more. I have some major things I’ve been working on for the blog, it’s going to be fiyah!
Until next time ! Be Fabolous !
Have you guys heard about the Kat Von D Lock It Foundation? If you haven’t, shame on you! This foundation is every oily skinned person’s dream come true! The line has 30 different shades! Yes ! 30! This is a full coverage foundation, so yes it is buildable. Plus, its super matte, which is why I said it’s great for us who skin always look like we slicked on a can of oil. I went to the Sephora in my area to grab me a bottle , and to my total disdain, they were out my color. Yes! My reaction to this was totally in shock, because here you have a product line of 30 shades, and all they had in stock was literally two shades. Wow! Really?
The makeup rep that assisted me said that we could still find my shade, and he would give me a sample to try at home. I was a little bummed, but I did want to make sure I purchased the correct shade later, because at $35.oo a bottle, you’re going to want the right shade. He tried the 71 Deep on me first, and that was way too light, and then he grabbed the 78 deep which he said was perfect. To me it was a tad too dark, but he promised me it was a perfect match. Before leaving he did hand me a tiny sample which is no where near enough to put on your whole face to test it out for a day. I made a Youtube video about the trip to Sephora, and posted it once I returned home.
I have to admit that I went back on Youtube looking at more Lock It Foundation reviews . because I want to make sure that its worth me going through all the trouble of hunting down. I also checked online, and they were sold out as well. I guess alot of people need a color 78. Have any of you tried it? Did you like it? Let me know your thoughts.
How are you ? Hoping that you are Blessed and looking Fabulous! Over the weekend I installed box braids on my 5 year old daughter as a protective style. I used 3 packs of the Remi kankelon braid hair. I think I could had used 2 but my son that’s 3 started playing around and messed up the hair.
I made them large, because she’s only five and I wanted to make sure that she didn’t end up with a head of heavy braids , and look too grown for her age. Trust me , I know better. Lol.
Here’s a bit of advice for you if you have a child who cried when you just part their hair or comb it. It will be so much easier for you if you spray the section with water and then finger deranged the section.
It took me about four hours to do her hair because she kept taking breaks , but it should had only been a two hour job at the most.
I didn’t burn her ends, I decided to dip them in hot water and rod her ends. She’s so happy with her ” big girl braids” as she calls them, and I’m happy too because I don’t have to comb her hair for two weeks. Lmao. Hope this helps some moms out there that’s not sure if large box braids is appropriate for a child. She keeps them in a ponytail or two , so we are all good. Thanks for reading !
Love , Free
Hi guys ! How have you been? I know I haven’t been writing as much as usual, but it’s been so busy around here with my husband being deployed. I am excited to let you know that I did color my sisterlocks.
Yes! I know. Lmao. I’m hardheaded , but I was sure that nothing crazy would happen. I did not let my loctician know I was going to , because I was told I would have had to wait 8 months to a year to color my locs , BE has thus had to settle first. Soooooo, yeah. I got tired of the black and needed some color. I had to really decide on a color that I felt I would want to keep for at least a year because I didn’t want to keep switching colors with this Journey. I decided on my red/orange , brown and black ombré color.
I did not bleach my locs at all! You guys know how I am about using bleach , and I did use a semi parmenant color Adore. I did try the textures and tones first and it didn’t take , only had me looking crazy by the roots. Then I remembered , that color doesn’t work on my head. WOMP WOMP!
For real tho , I love my sisterlocks. This was the best decision I think I made. I was a free flowing natural for 4 years and a half , that journey had to come to an end, and it’s ok. I’m happy that I finally got my sisterlocks , and I plan on rocking the heezy out of them !
Please ! Please ! If you decide to get Sisterlocks listen to your loctician. Don’t be doing what I did , and then have the nerve to get mad at me if something happens. Lmao. I’m not the blame.
Hello my loves!
Here’s my video footage on my SisterLock install. It took three days for me to get 530 locks installed. My loctician name is Shawn, she’s the owner of All Tangled Up LLC , located in Stone Mountain GA.
I’ll be posting a video on my YouTube page going over the history of Sisterlocks, and how to take care of them soon. I hope you enjoy the video , I know I was extra but that’s because I was excited. Lol.
I have a new and exciting product that I want to review . Now it’s really not new, but it’s new to my curls. It’s the Loreal EverCurl 6 in 1 Cleansing Balm. Influenster sent me the product to review for free, and to give my honest opinion.
First off it did not have a strong fragrance , which I loved. I hate opening a product to begin sneezing like a nut. The pump in my opinion is too small, which means to get a nice amount of product you have to keep pumping continuously. The consistency is rich and creamy, which I like. It didn’t feel soapy (slippery and sticky). You get a nice small lather just to let you know it has a cleansing agent in it. Then the whole conditioning affect takes over, and you start feeling your hair softening up. Would I use the product again ? Yes! I actually want to try their other products in the EverCurl line now. You do receive a lot of product in the bottle too, so you won’t feel cheated. Try it! Then report bk to me how you liked it!
I’m so excited to bring this product review series to you all! It’s on Kinkistry Hair Extensions! They have weft hair and clip ins that is very pretty much undetectable as being extensions. This hair is so close to our own curls it’s scary! Scary Good! You can pick between three different hair types. You have Koilistics which is for hair type 3b-3c , you have the Kurlgenics which is for 3c-4a, and lastly the Kinknetics clip ins for 4b-4c hair. Now each set comes in 10-28inches . That’s pretty cool because some companies stop at 22-24 inches. The color of the hair only comes in natural which is okay, because it’s 100% virgin human hair. YES! You can dye it!
The owner whom is Angela Fite’ is very professional , and is superb in customer service. I can’t even tell you how many questions I had , and she even gave me some tips on how to use the clip ins since this is my first set. I’m so happy that I chose this company. The hair is very soft , and it looks exactly like my own hair!
Next I will be dying it , since my hair is a midnight blue mixed with another blue. I will be posting the coloring video next. Please go check out the KINKISTRY . Her prices are reasonable , it’s great quality hair , and you get your merchandise fast. If you all have any questions please feel free to email me as usual @ firstname.lastname@example.org.
