Hair Diary: Crown Roll

I was attempting to create a dutch crown braid with my Sisterlocks and it just was not working out… *sad face*. My Sisterlocks were too thick to braid around my head and connect them to recreate the look so I improvised!

Instead of braiding my hair, I just rolled all my Sisterlocks around my head and secured them with, can you believe it, 3 bobby pins!

I really liked the style and even wore it to the Salon the next morning. People were really intrigued by the style and were curious how I got it to stay, I just said "tuck & roll, tuck & roll", LOL!

Have you tried any styles lately that didn't work out and you improvised to make it your own?

My DIY Sisterlocks Retightening Experience

So I had my last retightening a few weeks ago and before this retightening I had the sudden urge to try to retighten my hair myself. Keep in mind I hadn't had my hair retightened in almost 8 weeks, 2 weeks over my norm, and there was definitely a mini afro situation going on in my head. The short version of the story, I took one Sisterlock from the front and did the pattern I thought was best for my hair. After only 2-3 minutes I saw scalp, yay! It definitely wasn't as bad as I though it'd be.

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to be a Guest Speaker at the T.A.N.G.L.E.S. "Natural Hair Journey: Where Do I Go From Here?" event [HERE]. If you've never heard of T.A.N.G.L.E.S., it is a Natural Hair student organization started at Howard University and T.A.N.G.L.E.S. stands for "Transitioners and Naturals, Growing, Learning and Educating Students".
