Me, Myself & I

Most of you know that I celebrated my five year loc'versary by getting my locks layered.  I wasn't really nervous about it, but the end result did take some getting used to.  Above, three looks:  Braidout, Caruso Steam Roller Set, Soft Spike Curler set.

The Pros of the layered cut:
  • My head feels much lighter.  Although Sisterlocks don't pull, I did have a lot of density which was very hot in the summer and took additional washing and drying time.
  • The cut is a little more age appropriate for a 50 year old woman
  • I wear my hair down more often
  • The bangs and layers keep the hair from falling into my face
  • My high pony's fall perfectly, rather than being weighed down
The Cons of the layered cut:

  • I kind of miss my "signature" density

  • I had to learn new ways to style my hair

  • Pulling hair back can be a challenge because of the bangs and layers

  • The cut did away with my highlighted ends causing my hair to look darker.

    Overall, I'm happy with the cut and bangs.  Now I have another 5 years to let them grow back!

    I love your locks! They look beautiful.

    I don't have locks, yet. I will get my Sisterlocks in the next month or so. What kinds of questions should I ask my consultant? Any tips?
