Sisterlocks...The Movement!

The story of Sisterlocks is a simple one. Created in 1993 by Dr. JoAnne Cornwell, this revolutionary technique promotes healthy hair. Many women are finding this hairstyle is more than that- it's a lifestyle...even a "movement" The locks offer women the ease and flexibility to style their hair without feeling like they cannot have an active lifestyle, which is the worry most women with relaxers have.

See, I have short hair that I wear in a modified mohawk. I also have a relaxer. My biggest challenge - having my hair stay straight or at least look straight while sticking to my self imposed bootcamp workout plan. Any woman who has a relaxer can attest to the challege of trying to keep their hair looking fresh after sweating for 45 minutes 5 times a week. A hairstyle that is suppose to last 2-3 weeks, quickly loses its luster in about 7 days. So as I contemplate the idea of going this route, I prepare to leave for my 9AM hair appointment to get my relaxer touched up. Let's see how long my style stays this month.
