Phyllis Johnson – Your Video Locktician

Hey Healthy Lockers!

To make a long story short…

Free Shipping For the next 72 hours on All Accessories and Shampoo Bars.  This includes loc ties, ear abstracts, loc jewelry, dvds and again – shampoo bars.  Sorry gang.  No mists and no oils are included in the free shipping promotion.  I’m still replenishing from the last sale.  If you include mists or oils, shipping will be calculated based on the mists and oils and not any of the other items.

Here’s the long story…

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year.  I love the colors, the textures, my jeans, my wraps, big sweaters, the crisp weather and best of all my lovely locs as they blow in the wind.  But what I absolutely love best about my locs, is I still get compliments just about everywhere I go…from how great they look, to how wonderful they smell, to

how soft they feel, to the beautiful adornments that I wear in them.  I’ve had my locs for over 14 years now and I never tire of them.  Strangers are intrigued when I share with them how long I’ve been growing them and that my loc jewelry has been in my hair for many many years.

October has always been a month that brings new ideas, life changes and fresh creativity for me.  27 years ago, I began my law enforcement career in October.  6 years later, in October, I got married.  Two years after that, I was a new mother – again in October.  And now retired, doing this hair thing and making products, videos, jewelry etc, I’ve finally accepted the

fact that I am blessed with the gift of creativity and a business acumen and personality that allows me to share it with others.  I can’t count how many times I have stepped away from my work, stared at it in amazement and said, “I can’t believe I just made that!”

I never went to professional school for hair.  I didn’t grow up with artist tools and craft kits.  Heck, I was a tomboy who participated and excelled in sports.  Even today I prefer ESPN, women’s rugby or a good true crime show over Atlanta Housewives and Scandal.  It was a rare occasion to see me with a doll.  No particular crafting skills were passed down to me from my mother or grandmother.  They were busy working long hard hours providing a roof over our heads and food on the table.  But yet, I bend and manipulate wire, that turn into the most interesting earrings and jewelry.  I create shampoo bars that people would rather look at instead of use, and I’ve learned how to create an income from the things I absolutely love to make and do.   My goodness – I learned how to make the earrings and the shampoo bars within the last year!

I am blessed and I’m truly appreciative of all of you.  Thank you for trusting enough to try my products, referring them to others and returning again and again to purchase them.  I am forever grateful.

Phyllis’ Loc Journey

Hey gang. 

Although I’m good at documenting my client’s loc journey through photos and videos, I realized that I have just a few pictures to document my own.  In response to your continual requests to see photos of my loc journey, I spent most of the day looking for photos of my hair and was able to pull together a small collection from over a 10 year period. 

I’m happy to be able to share these with you.

“When Can I Style My New Sisterlocks?”

This post is in response to a question I received from a reader with newly installed Sisterlocks.  She wanted to know if she could start roller setting her new locks.  I decided to make a post and respond to her question here so that more readers can benefit from the answer I gave her.  You can read it below.

*************************************************

Hi Darlene.  The only time I ” roller set” the Sisterlocks is after the initial installation and only if the locks are straight.  Some of my clients have very coily,  highly textured hair and require no roller setting after the initial installation.  I then encourage my clients not to do too much additional styling during the first several months so that the locks have a chance to settle. 

Over the next several weeks your new Sisterlocks will change in their appearance.  They will loosen and “draw up” giving a shorter appearance to your locks.  Your hair will become more full and your parts will be less noticeable (until your next re-tightening).  Your locks may develop little spirally ringlets on the very tips and overall your locks will be more “fluffy”.  This is normal.  But, if you continuously style, by roller setting, plaiting, twisting, pulling it  back, or any type of additional styling, you may be stressing the locks and hindering the locking process.   It’s best to leave your new Sisterlocks alone doing the least amount of styling as possible.  When you’re manipulating your new Sisterlocks to obtain a style, you’re pulling and stretching at the lock that should be in a natural “contracting” stage, which is a stage that occurs before the hair starts to mesh together to lock.

So in a nutshell…less is more when it comes to your new Sisterlocks.  Enjoy them at this stage and allow them to develop so that you will have healthy, uniform and consistent looking Sisterlocks down the road.

Just a little side note…hair that is highly textured, kinky and coily – You know, the good ol’ “nappy” hair, can withstand more styling early on than hair that is smoother and softer in texture.  I have a few clients that have been able to curl and style their hair from day one.  I also have one client that comes to mind who suffers from major slippage because of the smooth, silky texture of her hair.  Click here to read her story

It has been my experience, however,  that the more you  manipulate your new Sisterlocks, the more slippage, unraveling and stretching of the locks will occur and you don’t want your locktician upset with you, especially when she’s already in you head for hours:)  Great question, Darlene.  Have a great hair day!

MamaSita Twists Promo Video -“Sexy” Part 3 of 4

Two quick and easy sexy styles.

Hey HealthyLockers! Here’s the first video in the series of 4 showing the results of the MamaSita Twists. Just a little history…I have Sister Locks (over 400) and they’ve been in since May of 2000.

I have so much to share with you, but let’s get on to the videos! Click on the picture below. Enjoy! Have A Great Hair Day!
