My New Natural Journey

Before Sisterlocs

Happy 2018! My name is Yolanda. I am a proud wife and mother of two boys. I live near Houston, TX. I am a HRIS analyst by day and hair junkie by night. I have been subscribed to Going-Natural.com since February 24, 2008 (I still have my email from this date with my login credentials). Back then, there were no YouTube videos, Instagram or Pinterest.

There were not many forums or sites truly dedicated to natural hair care. I was looking for any site that would be helpful in my hair care journey. I first subscribed to Nappturality.com. I was excited to find another online resource with Going-Natural.com. Besides the hair care tips, I would look forward to seeing the contestants on America’s Next Natural Model.

I first went natural in 2002, but I wore my hair straight. I permed my hair after the birth of my first son in 2004.

   
Relaxed Hair

My second natural hair care journey began in January 2008. I had dry scalp and it could no longer take the chemical burns. My last perm resulted in red patches on my scalp. I thought someone set my scalp on fire. My hair also thinned out due to my PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) condition. 

 
Unhealthy Short Relaxed Hair

I cut off my perm for the last time. I had no idea how to style the 4 inches of natural hair, but I was free from the chemicals.

In my 10 years of being natural, I have tried every rod set, braid out, bantu knot and numerous other styles natural hair offered. I felt like I had mastered the natural hair game.

Natural Hair Styles

At 39, I gave birth to my second son. Time was now a luxury and I needed an on-the-go easy hairstyle. I was ready to embark on a new journey – Sisterlocks. I had stalked YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest and Sisterlocks.com for years. I have always loved locs but did not have the courage to get them- until now. In September 2017, I decided to take a leap of faith and scheduled a consultation. On December 3, 2017, 409 Sisterlocks were born.
