I have come to the realization that it is the back of my head that stands between my Sisterlocks installation date and my waning patience. The pictures below give the appearance of my hair being pretty much one length all over, but the top of my hair is almost three times the length of the back and twice the length of the sides. I do a “hair pick check” once a week just to see how much my hair has grown. One thing is perfectly clear…my hair is super thick, and closest to the scalp, it’s super coily. I’m hopeful that the awkward (and often unsightly) spacing of the grid pattern I have of my locks will not be a huge concern.

Hi! My name is Andi, and I welcome you to take this journey with me from the decision-making process to installation to the day-to-day reflections about my lifestyle transition to Sisterlocks. An educator by trade, coupled with a natural desire to candidly share through writing, this blog will offer you many visual stories, close-ups and personal revelations, and uninhibited reflections about my health, in general, and my hair, in particular. I am so very excited about how this particular natural hair transition, and I hope that my journey inspires you, in impactful ways, to consider a lifestyle transition that will help you grow into a rich, more colorful, self-aware woman.
