3ABN - Sisterlocks Intro

We survived 2006 Spring Break after taking ten youth from our church on a trip to 3ABN in Illinois to tape a teen talk show called "Teen Pathways." My husband and I are one of the hosts and we have a 501 3c youth ministry, Maranatha Youth Ministries ........yes, we are constantly on the go! ("I know, our website needs a face lift and updating.) This was my first appearance with my Sisterlocks and the producers were trying to figure out exactly what I had done to my hair. Needless to say, by the time I left they knew all about sisterlocks! Group picture is our youth group on set with the producer, camera crew, audio crew and make-up artist. Pictured left, my son and I on set. (He's looking so cool because this was the first time since turning 13 this year that he could participate on the teen show.) The Lord truly blessed the shows as everyone shared personal touching life experiences.

Back to sisterlocks, when I returned I/we were all exhausted and I needed a hair lift to get my energy going. Gigi originally had me scheduled for next week and she was able to move me to today. I went in and she gave me a wonderful repair session and new do. I was on a high when I left and we took some really cute pictures that my camera lost, ugh, I'll never be able to get those back but for now here is what Mrs. Wonderful did to me!

When Gigi learned that I worked out three times a week and was rinsing my hair after each workout, I got the hands on the hip move...... My sides and front are no where close to being locked so Gigi put me on a new regimen:

For the next three months:
  • After each work out, use 50/50 Sea Breeze/distilled water mixture and Creme of Nature scalp cleanser to cleanse my scalp
  • Only wash every other week so that my hair concentrates on locking
  • Do not even think about rinsing my hair
  • Continue braiding & banding my sides and fronts as my back is totally locked Posted by Picasa

LaChanda! Gurl, I know how you felt after seeing GiGi. I was originally scheduled for next week and she got me in this week as well. Your do is to die for! Too, too cute. She gave you good advice about not rinsing your hair and I'm going to copy that recipe and use it myself. I don't rinse after working out, never have. So her recipe sounds like a good advice for us both. I got a trim this week and gurl, you can't tell me I ain't cute...hehehe....Loved seeing pictures of your family - I didn't even know you had a son! Gurl you look so good. Beautiful family - just beautiful! Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.

Let me chime in and say that your family is indeed beautiful. I also see that your lovely niece was on the trip. Tell her hello from me.

Now that new do is too cute! What did she do in the back? What is involved in your repair sessions?

Can't wait to see you guys on Sunday!

Tra said...

I have one more question (lol)...with the mix that Gigi recommnded...are you appling it with a spray bottle directly to your scalp or what?

Thanks in advance,

Thanks all for the kind words.

TRA, to answer your questions:
1. What did she do in the back? It is french rolled in the back and really tight and cute. My hubby really like it.

2. What is involved in your repair sessions? Gigi tightened my losse ends and I had a lot of slippage on the sides and front so she put new locks back in.

3. Are you appling it with a spray bottle directly to your scalp or what? Yes, she directed me to mix the Sea Breeze and distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz on my scalp then wipe with a lent free cotton balls.

Looking forward to the gathering on Sunday!!!!
