Hey Goodies!

I finally got around to filming and editing this for you all; I wanted it to be as informational and as thorough as possible. I recommend watching it all the way through as I not only give the steps to self retightening your hair, but as well as helpful tips to ensure you do it correctly!

Also, I often get the question of how long it takes to retighten my hair or my mom’s since she has 1000+ sisterlocks. I decided to film a video filled with tips on how I do it so fast. Follow these steps to achieve a faster self retightening time!

Nappy Link Tool

I use the “micro” size Nappy Lock Tool found on this link when I am tightening.

I hope you all enjoy 🙂

EarthSistas in nature; what could be better inspiration? Momentary strolls that were reflective, imaginative, provocative and creative leading to some revealing moments in which beauty both inside and out are exposed. And with this exposure… through this unveiling… there is a serenity. There is a euphoric communion with nature that is liberating. And whether she’s a country girl or urbanista, all of the earthSistas seem to find a moment of peace that, like their beauty, is inside and out.
