Human hair is easier than mannequin hair!

Hi everyone! I've just completed my first full retightening on fellow SL trainee Cheryl Grant Samms. Whoot whoot! We're both very pleased with the results, and have decided to retighten each others hair, to increase our speed as certified trainees.
I gather my first time was a little like breaking in new shoes. The first times a little snug, but it gets easier each step you take. I learned that you have to be mindful of how you're sitting or standing as you retighten. You feel it in your arms, shoulders and back if you're in one position too long. I had to take a few moments to stretch. Other than that, it was awesome. I felt quite accomplished when I was done! Lucky for me she has low density, it would have taken me two or three times as long if she had had high density. Good luck to Cheryl who's scheduled to retighten mine in a few weeks. She has her work cut out for her because my hair is definitely on the dense side of things. Here are some pictures we took during the process.

**To anyone planning to take the training, working on a human head is much easier than a mannequin head!

Hello Lovelies! Guess who took the sisterlocks class? Me! Yaaay! I'm now available to install and retighten them in the Boston area. I've learned so much about black hair. Even after so many years of wearing my hair natural, there was so much that I didn't understand about our different hair textures, curl patterns, density etc. I didn't realize how beneficial this class would be to me. I also now understand the importance of proper maintenance, and how neglecting this effects our hair overtime. I am a believer of the sister lock products. I have started using them, and am already seeing results (less shedding). Other products are formulated to detangle our hair--->NOT what we want to do. This actually disrupts our hair ESPECIALLY before it locks. This causes the locking process to take much longer. Sisterlock products clean and treat hair while allowing the hair to remain in its natural form. Try them for yourself!

Here are some pictures of me and my fellow sl classmates after class.

finally...a post :)

Hello all! Its been a long while since I've posted anything new. Anywhoo, April 26, 2010 will make it my 2nd sister lock anniversary! Yaaaaaay! I took this pic over the weekend and thought I'd share it with ya'll. Cute huh? Incase you were wondering how I styled you go.
1.Part a big square section in the front of your head
2.Tie an elastic close to the end of that square section
3.Hold it straight up in the air and lean it to one side
4.Push it into itself while rolling it back to one side
5.Use a few hair pins to keep it in place
6.Next I took two pieces from each side of my head
7.Bring them together, roll them in towards your scalp
8.Use a few pins to hold it in place, and your done!

Two natures beat within my breast,

The one is cursed, the other is blessed.

The one I love, the other I hate,

The one I feed will dominate!
