Have A Great Hair Day. Hope to see ya this weekend.
I’m going to enjoy sharing this post with you.You’re about to meet one of my newest Sisterlocks client, Felecia.Felecia, a very attractive woman, has been plagued with pre-mature graying of her hair since she could remember.Because of it, the people who don’t know her assume that she is much older than she actually is.And when going to a salon to get her hair done, they would always give her, “old fashion” styles.Felecia shared with me that she has always permed and dyed her hair and was a very regular customer at the traditional beauty salons.So like most of us prior to locking, Felecia had a regular routine of perming and coloring her hair, which translates into many hours in the salon, dry damaged hair and lots of money spent on a style that’s only going to last until the next humid or rainy day. Permanent black dye was the only dye that would give complete coverage of her gray, but as her gray hair grew in, Felecia says that within a week and a half, you could see the conspicuous line of demarcation, which was literally “white going to black”.Felecia, who works in a professional office atmosphere and who is very active in her church, chuckles as she recalls how her hair looked and was perceived when she was not only growing out her perm, but also growing out of her black dye.She literally had black hair on top of a halo of white new growth, which she confidently wore in a straight afro. (Interesting.I wish I had a picture of that.)Also, as we get older, we desire to take better care of ourselves and Felecia realized that all of that chemical processing so often, needed to stop.
It’s funny when sisters decide that they’ve finally had enough hair drama.For most of us, once you decide to go natural, you become very determined about your hair and how you will deal with “non-naturals”.People closest to you can’t understand for the life of them why anyone would come out in public with their hair like this…
I have to give it to Felecia.She did her homework and actually interviewed two Sisterlocks consultants before finding me on YouTube.On the day of her consultation, she rang my door bell, and as I opened the front door, I was greeted by THREE people –Felecia and her two adult, natural-haired daughters.The younger of the two had natural twists, which she maintained herself and she was just as excited as her mother.The older one, however, who was more guarded and serious, had a head full of beautiful thick traditional locs that cascaded down her back.She had been growing them for over 8 years.During the actual consultation that lasted approximately 3 hours, they peppered me with lots of great questions in between the many questions that I had for Felecia along with watching videos, viewing pictures and asking her about her current hair regimen and her lifestyle.
By the end of the consultation, everyone was relaxed and confident that they had received thorough and accurate info about locked hair and Sisterlocks.It was during this time that I turned to the eldest daughter, smiled and asked, “Did I pass your test?”They all chuckled and agreed that I knew my craft and admitted they wanted to make sure that Felecia (their mother) wasn’t going to be talked into anything and that the person installing her Sisterlocks knew what she was doing – we’ve all heard of the horror stories.
That was funny to me and I occasionally tease Felecia how she came to her consultation with her “posse” and “both barrels loaded”.But at the same time, I had to convey and re-iterate to Felecia that her locking process would definitely be challenging because of the smooth and straight texture of her hair.She would probably experience a lot of slippage, plus she still had a few inches on top that were permed that she wasn’t ready to get rid of. All my experience with gray hair confirms that gray hair has a mind of its own and will almost always work itself outside of the loc.So I really wanted to prepare her for whatever technique she chose for locking. Her process would be a lot longer.Felecia’s hair won’t even resemble locs until close to 2 years in.It will look more like a bushy afro until then.
I will continue to document Felecia’s journey, so visit often.I love the challenging heads.You learn a lot from them.Enjoy the video and wishing everyone a great hair day!

This is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry for my locs. I just wanted to give you an upclose view of it’s intricacy. This design is hand made especially for the Sisterlocks. It’s called the "Tiny Cobra" and is available for order. Check out the video.
Boy, I haven’t posted in over 4 months! Had to deal with challenges that literally put everything on the back burner, including my businesses and blogs. That’s life though. I’m thankful, blessed and I’m still here. Excited about being here too. Have lots of great stuff and video footage to share with you.
The new format of my site is the first one. I’ve been feverishly learning everything I can about about building a better blog. You’ll find that this format will be easier for you to find info and to navigate. Some things still need to be formatted and a whole bunch of content has to be added, but it appears to be working OK. Let me know if you experience any glitches.
Ok going to bed now. It’s 5:20 am and I haven’t been to bed yet. Good night….I mean – Good morning!
To get compliments everywhere you go and to enhance your beautiful locks…Go to the home page and click on the tab that’s titled “Jewelry & Adornments” to see the collection of hand made jewelry.

Hey Gang. Because of the state that our economy is in, many of you have an immediate financial need or have become more open to alternative ways to making money other than your 9-5. I’ve received many emails and phone calls in these last several months requesting information about how to start a natural hair business or how to make money with the products that I use. I’ve helped hundreds of people generate money from home and continue to do so everyday. This is why it’s difficult for me to post more often. So I’ve decided to do a series of videos that will directly address these questions and provide the resources to help those of you who are looking for ways to generate additional income. If you want this information quickly, contact me through my other sites.
Go to http://www.SoulPurposeDiva.com – to learn more about the products that I use. Check it out. The beauty about incorporating these products into my natural hair business, is that I’ve been able to generate more money than I could ever make just doing hair in my local market. Marketing these products have literally taken my little home-based business, in the tiny state of Delaware, and exposed it on a national and international level…and I can share with you how to do the same. In the meantime, take advantage of my ‘Economic Stimulus Sale’ and stock up on your favorite Soul Purpose products!
If you’re interested in getting these products at wholesale, contact me today. Make it a great day and I’ll talk to you soon. Phyllis – Your Video Locktician
The lock jewelry has been a hit, so I apologize if it’s taking longer than usual to respond to your post here on the site and on YouTube (been busy making jewelry). I have to get these instructional videos out too. So I’m making a small inventory of the jewelry so that I can focus on the finishing touches of my instructional DVD’s, which are way overdue.
I can’t really accommodate the special requests at this time, but please continue to write or email me with your requests or suggestions. I draw inspiration from them and may be able to accommodate several of them in the near future. As I mentioned before, this initial jewelry showing is a test to see what may become popular and then I’ll build from there. Right now the “Tiny 10” set is leading in popularity, with the lock slides “snakes” and the “Trio” sets coming in a close second.
You can now view a video on how to attach the jewelry to your locks or hair and when you receive your order, you’ll also get an instructional sheet with great photos on how to attach the jewelry. The video can be found on the same page where the jewelry is located…(click on the blue link on the right that has the word “Jewelry” in it). It’s going to be under the category of PAGES.
That’s it for now. It’s 2 am and I have to get to bed. I’ll be in touch soon. I’ve got soooo much to share!
