3 Years Locked

Wow...Can't believe it has been a whole 3 years since I locked my hair. I never thought I would make it this far. As I told you all in my last post that with three years comes change for me. The change took a lot of thought because I have become very attached to my hair over the past three years....but.....I decided it was time to do away with the sister locks so they are now gone:( I thought I would miss them but I believe this change is for the best as my hair was starting to thin in the crown. For a girl who already has thin hair, this was hard to look at everyday. This area has always been a problem and stress area for me as a child and as an adult with a perm. I hope you all aren't too disappointed but it had to be done. I will however continue blogging about my new and exciting hair journey and I hope that you all will continue to follow and support. I took pictures of the thinning area. I think that the sisterlocks simply put too much tension on this weak area over time and I was tired of continuously trying to cover it up.

I will post pictures soon of the changed me, although I love it, I am still trying to get used to it.

Lock on wit yo bad self!


  1. So did u cut them off? Pics! Pics! Pics!

  2. It looks like you've combined maybe? Oh the suspense!! I second Mrs. Honey, pics!!

  3. There is no fun in covering up your thinning area when you want to sport your locs in all their beauty. I'm glad that you're doing what is best for you and your hair. Good for you for addressing this issue early instead of waiting for something worse to happen.

  4. dewdrop,
    You are so correct about no fun to cover up although it really wasn't that hard to hide. The picture makes it look a lot worse for some reason. Yes, had to address it early as so many of our fellow lockers are suffering from great hair loss. I believe that the micro locks had just taken a toll on my already thin hair. But its OK, they were fun while they lasted. By the way, your hair is still looking awsome!
