I’m back and I see you are too!! Welcome!!
Today, Mia is 3 weeks into her sisterlock journey. She has enjoyed her locs thus far and glad that she has them. Mia said that she enjoys her locs because she does not have to get her hair washed every 2 weeks lol.. She is having some slippage in the nape area. Her hair is also very frizzy. I expected the frizziness, so we will see if it decreases after her first wash. It may be because I am putting her hair in a pineapple at night. I will start having her wear her bonnet at night without doing the pineapple method.
Mia’s first wash will be this weekend, no later than next weekend. She is not having any dry scalp issue at this time. Mia will be going in three more weeks for her first re-tightening. Our sisterlock practitioner (Keondra) will have some work to do lol.. Mia said that she has gotten a lot of great reception at school. She does not have any friends that are natural or with locs. I am so excited that she has had such a great experience while on her loc journey. We am so proud of Mia for embracing her natural self, especially in an environment where she stands out more than most.
I am very surprise that she is having slippage because her hair is very coarse. I tried to compare her hair journey to mine and it is obviously different. It is true that everyone’s journey is their own and no two are alike. This is the beauty of a loc journey. Purple Butterfly Squad is inspired by this exact notion that we are all UNIQUE beautiful BUTTERFLIES!!
- Do you have child(ern) with locs or natural hair? How has their experience been so far?
