Mom...Now...Sis

I am proud to introduce my biological sister, "G", the latest of my family to cross over to natural freedom.   She came to visit me and receive her birthday present from Big Sis - Sisterlocks!  

My sister has worn wigs for seven years.  Like many African American women, she suffered hair damage and loss from, what we now know are harmful chemicals.  Wearing wigs simply became a way of life for her.  And while she truly sported them and they were attractive, it wasn't her hair.  On a trip home I discovered she had a full head of beautiful, natural hair with only limited reminants of the damage.

This is how she looked when she arrived in Oklahoma.
And this is how she left Oklahoma - sporting her own head of beautiful, natural Sisterlocks.


Pics of her installation follow.  Hair styled by spritzing with water, braiding and rolling ends for a krinkly look.  She had her hair dyed this beautiful color by a professional colorist two weeks prior to locking.  As the color begins to wear off and her locks mature, she'll have a beautiful two-tone look.  I'm so proud of her for celebrating her natural beauty.  Afterall, she's BlaqKofi's sister!

Me, Mom, now "G".  We know and believe that God will heal lil sis, T and then all of the women in Blaq's immediate family will be walking natural testimonies!

The wig was ok, but it was hiding her face....all you saw was wig in comparison. She looks so much softer with the Sisterlocks. Very pretty!

Her locks look lovely! How exciting!

I cannot wait to get mine. It's looking like it won't be until November, and it feels like it's going to be an eternity until then!

Oh my God you did and excellent job! I think the Sisterlocks suits her. Congrats to her and her locks, and congrats to you for the opportunity to free someone special!

OMG I wish and pray that my niece and mother converts over. It hurts me to see how our young black sisters long for identity only to be hidden by weave. I love my hair and I have never been able to say that before now. I love her hair and yours

I am 9 months SLocked and would like to dye my hair. I am DIYer and wanted to know is it OK for me to dye on my own or should I go back to my consultant?
