Greetings! I am now in Week 12 of my natural hair journey. However, today, I took the first step towards my Sisterlock journey. I was referred and given a name and phone number of a Sisterlock Trainee by Theresa, a woman I met in the LockItUp group. She gave me several people to contact for Sisterlocks. I called the first person on my list (a Certified Sisterlock Consultant) yesterday, left a message, but I have not heard back from the person. So, I continued on down my list and the Sisterlock Trainee was next in line of people to call. When I initially called, no one answered so I left a message. In less than 30 minutes, I received a call back (she gets a PLUS for that). The Sisterlock Trainee was such a nice person to talk to over the phone. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and provided a wealth of information concerning her experience with Sisterlocks, Sisterlocks in general, and the process of obtaining and maintaining Sisterlocks. First impressions are DEFINITELY lasting ones to me…and she made a GOOD first impression. I was impressed!!! I explained to her that I had kinky twist braids in my hair and would be taking them down July 27th. We decided to make my initial consultation with her for July 30th. Now…you know I’m anxious…LOL…especially if you’ve been checking in and monitoring my progress. I’m ALWAYS ranting about getting my Sisterlocks. Well…I just wanted everyone to know that I’ve taken the first step towards this journey. I’m SO excited!!!
Above…is a picture of an up-do style with a kinky twist…that’s what I like to call it. Looks rather cute…if you ask me. Here are a couple of pictures of my new growth:

The back of my hair near the nape/neck area had been tapered and shaved. When my hair was braided, it was too short to braid. It has since grown out and look at it now…check out the pic below:
Well…it looks like I’m on my way and gradually moving towards having my Sisterlocks soon. I’m now anxiously awaiting my initial consultation on July 30th!!!
