We just got back from a wonderful week in the sun in Florida at Grayton beach. The kids made sandcastles, swam, fished, kayaked and generally had a wonderful time. My Sisterlocks went through a massive assault of chlorine, sand and seawater but seem to be holding up. Wish you were here...

For a while I've been contemplating cutting my Sisterlocks short or even starting again. Why? A bit of frustration with its current length and general dissatisfaction with the way its responding to color and self retightenings. Seeing recently-installed clients Miss A (pictured with me in the top photo) and Jabreka(bottom photos) rocking their short Sisterlocks with pride, gives me added incentive. Jabreka actually got herself a fade cut in between her follow-up retightening and first retightening. Hey presto! I was like...wait a minute? You've shaved off hours of my careful work? However her new look is fierce although we needed a 7 hr session to reinstall all the unravelling.
Hmm....check back and see what I decide to do.
Psst: Our next Atlanta Sisterlocks Meetup is on coloring Sisterlocks. Don't miss it.

Here we are at our fourth meetup June 28th which was a summer brunch. We really had a great time. There were plenty of Sisterlocks in all stages of development from new, new born babies(4 days old Sisterlocks) to 4 plus years. There were also a number of ladies interested in Sisterlocks in attendance so we had a lot of questions and first-hand sharing. Thanks for all who made it. A big thanks to Sophia and Aajiliah for all their help. Looking forward to the next one soon. Check Ayo's blog and Sophia's blog for more photos. We had about 15 ladies attending in all.
