Keep It Simple Styles adorned with Lilla Rose hair jewely…Ready for the weekend!
I’m back! All is well, so much has transpired since I last blogged. Locs of Luv is doing great! We have two Certified Sisterlocks Consultants on board and one Sisterlocks Trainee in the house. Our Sisterlocks trainee, Rachel Thomas, my daughter took the Sisterlocks training two years ago, currently she has several clients and has completed her first solo establishment of Sisterlocks. Rachel is currently being mentored at Locs of Luv. If you or know of anyone that would like to start their Sisterlocks journey please consider giving Rachel the opportunity. You can see her work on her FB page Locs 2 Luv. As this year quickly draws to a close I’m thankful for having been afforded the opportunity to support so many of you with your respective hair journeys. I wish you all a safe and happy holiday.

With colder temperatures we’re inclined to wear shawls sweaters and hats to keep warm. Be mindful of winter wear that sheds exessively, many of the fibers can become embedded in the locks. Protect your locks by wearing satin lined caps or scarves with a low pile (yarn count). Lilla Rose hair jewelry also helps keep our locks up and safe from winter wear that has looser fibers. Stay warm.
Please accept our heartfelt wishes to all for a wonderful new year. Peace, love, joy and prosperity! Cathy Thomas, Certified Sisterlocks Consultant, Owner and Operator of Locs of Luv, Independent Lilla Rose Stylist http://www.lillarose.biz/cathythomas
Two ties, three ties we all scream for ties. These beautiful “Tied Loc Styles“ are held in place with Lilla Rose hair jewelry. An XL flexi is used for both. The Flexis come in seven different sizes ranging from mini to mega. They don’t cut into the hair or cause undo tension, you can wear them all day…pinky promise! http://www.lillarose.biz/cathythomas
I so miss our times together, life has been busy to say the least and I’ve not taken the time to blog. Will do better, pinky promise! The most recent exciting thing that has happened was that Locs of Luv celebrated its 4th Year Anniversary in its current location and not a peep was made! Shame, shame, shame!!! Enough of the lamenting already. I thank God for keeping the doors open another year, I thank him for all of the clients that have entrusted me with caring for their beautuful heads of hair, thank you for being here to read my blogs. Here’s to prayerfully another great year! Happy 4th Year Anniversary to Locs of Luv! The roses are for you!
Welcome home to Sisterlocks! It was indeed a joyous occasion to see so many sisters and brothers come together in one place. The bond that existed there was heartwarming and refreshing. Sisters and brothers came from all over the United States and abroad. It was truly a time of celebration. I offer much gratitude to Dr. JoAnne Cornwell, originator of this great hair movement. If you’re considering Sisterlocks for your next hair style, keep in mind that’s it’s not just another hairstyle but a lifestyle. It’s one that will liberate you on many levels.

In the flow of keeping styles simple after retightenings here’s what two of my clients styled out of the door with today. A little twist here and there, a few bobbi pins coupled with beautiful hair jewelry and they’re all smiles with cute styles.

Keeping styles simple after retightenings are key in not compromising your locks or your fragile hairline. After you’ve had your locks retightened the last thing you want to experience is a style where you can’t smile for fear of your locks snapping at the roots. Actually, we should be mindful of the tension on our locks at all times. Our hairline and locks are compromised when we repetitively wear styles where the locks are unduly stressed. A couple of weeks after your retighten when your locks have loosened up some, more elaborate styles can be experienced. Bobbi Pins with smooth ends as well as hair jewelry with smooth edges complement our locked hairstyles. Part with your hair jewelry that has sharp edges and teeth that can weaken your locks over time. Keep in mind your stylist can’t read your mind when she’s styling your hair, be sure to let her know if the style is too tight or if bobby pins or hair jewelry is causing you discomfort. Be kind, gentle and loving towards your locks…K.I.S.S. by Cathy
