    Post Sister Loc Chronicles: My Next Natural hair journey

    Hey everyone,

    I have to say that I am so glad to be back on Nappturality. I have been natural for about 8 years and I have been had my hair in so many styles, cuts and protective hairstyles over the years. I have always loved how locks looked and a few years ago, I meant someone who had sister locks. I FELL IN LOVE with them, absolutely in love with them. This past week, I was on a cruise with a group of friends and family. One of my friends transitioned to sister locks and they looked SO cute!!!! (I was low-key jealous of her.......) We got to talking about natural hair, the challenges we've both had because of thinning hair....etc. I told her that I didn't even think about it when my hair started showing more and more thinning. She told me that I could still get it and that she researched it for a year before committing and it's helped her hair ALOT. (It's not going to take me that long to decide.....) but she is really encouraging me to do it. My fear, is that if I get sister locks, the thinning area will be more pronounced. Now call it vain, (and maybe I am) but I know I will be uncomfortable if my scalp is very noticeable.

    So I am going to get input and do a consultation with a professional. I believe that's a good start and I can go from there! I will post a recent picture of me.

    As always, keep it nappalicious!!!

    Nice picture

    I also considered sisterlocks because I have thin hair and I felt that the small size of sisterlocks would help to avoid the scalpy look. In the end I decided upon micro braidlocs because I like to do my hair myself.

    Good luck on your hair journey!

    1st loc journey: braidlocs (7 yrs)
    2nd loc journey: sisterlocks (2.5 yrs still going)

    I love both journey's for different reasons.
    If concerned about thinning, get braids or interlocks installed, maintain with a loose 2pt rotation that allow the roots to stay fairly puffy/loose at the roots. Then get ready because your hair will grow like crazy and new hair often emerges from quasi dormant follicles. #locon
    If you aren't learning, then you aren't growin.
