I've had my sisterlocks for 7 years now and despite all of the issues: postpartum hair-loss, sketch hair stylists, DIY hair color failures, and my own consistency with self-maintaining, I still think it is the best hair decision I have ever made!

I really love my hair! I have to repeat the sentiments form my 6th hair anniversary:

You don't know what it means to be a brown girl that loves her hair as is. To be free of relaxers that never agreed with me. To be free of curl defining this and hair straightening that. As much as I love seeing a girl with a great blow-out or a fierce twist-out, I felt like I was comparing my hair to others and feeling inadequate. Hair, for many of us, is one of the first ways we express our personal style, culture, and self.
