I've been told a few times that when my locks finally grow up that they will look like traditional locks. My come back to that comment is, "I really would like to have Lisa Bonet's locks."
So why didn't I go for a free form locks? I'm a punk. It takes some big balls to do them. Why did I get Sisterlocks? I tried twists and braids. They unraveled hideously. When I read about Sisterlocks and the unique interwoven pattern, and that I could shampoo whenever, I knew that was what I needed.
Why did I get locks? Because one day my hair would look like this. My eyebrows looked so good!
The next day it would look like this.
If I wanted my hair to look like this (pic above) everyday, then I would have to no-poo and put heavy grease on it. It became too much work to detangle and my hair was breaking off. Aww. Sad day. In an effort to save my hair, I decided to lock. In short, I did it because I like my hair. I didn't do it for looks. I did it to stay natural and to rid myself of detangling.
