By Terez Howard My sister (who proudly proclaims her addiction to “the creamy crack”) was recently complimenting my hair. She has been impressed by the way my locs have progressed over the past year.
By Terez Howard Apple cider vinegar has a long list of benefits to one’s health and appearance. It can be a conditioner, cleanser and germ killer for your natural hair. Apple cider vinegar actually helps to balance your hair’s pH level. But the reason I like apple cider vinegar is to remove any product build-up […]

I took the official Sisterlocks Retightening Class about a month ago. I’m proud to say that I completed retightening my entire head for the first time on my By Terez Howard.
It’s official. My Sisterlocks turned 1 year old on Oct. 29, 2011. See what I learned during this past year at my Sisterlocks blog. Check out my Youtube video, which shows my SISTERLOCKS JOURNEY, hair styles and growth over the past year.
