Sisterlocks & Road Trips…

PhotoGrid_14506551911661450661736097My most favorite time to retighten my Sisterlocks is when I’m traveling. Whether I’m traveling abroad or in the good old  USA I make sure to retighten my Sisterlocks. My most memorable times have been while traveling in Zimbabwe,  during all three of my visits there I’ve made sure I retightened my locks. The beautiful landscape helped the time to go by faster. It takes approximately six to seven hours to complete my entire head so I pace myself, I normally work at two hour intervals or until my arms get tired. I start in the back, the locks in the back are larger than the front so I can knock those out quicker.  Finishing in a day is a feat that I seldom undertake.The longer I wait the longer it takes to get the job done. Sounds familiar…Right??? I use my pointer finger to gauge  when its  time to retighten my locks, for some this might be too much new growth. Some  may be wondering how I retighten my locks without a mirror, at first  it was really awkward  but practice overtime increased my comfort level and speed. I’ll never forget the time I joined two locks together while traveling home from Arizona. I was new to this whole business of retightening my locks so I freaked out a bit, fortunately I was able to untangle them once I got home to my mirror.  If you ever accidentally  combine your locks don’t panic, they can usually be untangled with a little work.  I just arrived home from a road trip, my goal is to  finish my entire head before 2016, I’m halfway there, wish me well!  Till next time be blessed.

  1. Are you using the sisterlock tool to retighten? I’m going to take the retightening class in March I was just curious.

  2. Yes, I’m using the Sisterlocks hook tool. My best to you in learning to retighten your locks. When I first learned to retighten my locks I received two tools, the hook tool and the clip tool. The home office only provides the clip tool now for those who take the class.
