The Ricki Lake Show in Los Angles, California is working on a show titles “Good Hair” and contacted me because they saw the video of Isabella who I interviewed a number of times. The video basically tells the story.

No. Sisterlocks’ small size really are the perfect style for thin-haired naturals.
As noted on my natural hair website, “Fragile, thin natural hair has flourished in Sisterlocks. If the hair is not cared for properly, it will break, regardless if you have Sisterlocks, traditional locs or loose hair.
In today’s society, Black hair has become synonymous to the word “damage”. I, as a black woman, can attest to this because I’ve experienced it, as did so many other sisters. Before I went natural, my hair was relaxed since the age of 5. Every month, I would burn my skin and scalp, leaving me with bald spots at the nape of my neck, for head, and the crown of my head. My junior year of high school, my hair could not sustain its self any longer and it began to fall out. It was getting shorter and shorter. When I got to college, my short hair cut inspired by Rihanna began to look like a birds nest due to the over processing and my beautiful new growth was hiding underneath it.
As a kid I never had much say over what was done to my hair so just as my grandma had done with my mom, my mom decided to perm my hair to make it more “manageable”. I hated getting my hair permed
As a kid I never had much say over what was done to my hair so just as my grandma had done with my mom, my mom decided to perm my hair to make it more “manageable”. I hated getting my hair permed, the smell burned my nose hairs and I just felt like it didn’t make sense that some white cream could straighten my hair. As I got older I would detest perms but my mom would always do them anyway. My aunt was my saving grace. She was a cosmetologist and ran something like a facial spa out of her house.
For years I have used glue for weave purposes. I went to a dermo dr. and he prescribed a shampoo.
Needless to say it did not work. But he did tell me that my bulb was damaged from pulling the
tracks out of my head instead of removing them properly. My hair has never grown back fully
I did the big chop in August of 2007 and I’ve been wearing my hair natural ever since. Until my hair grew out, I had been wearing weaves and my hair came out really bad around the front sides and my nape area last year which was of my own doing from not taking out my weaves correctly.
