Sisterlock and Locked Hair Testimonies

These are video testimonies from the DFW Sisterlock Gathering this past weekend (10-15-06). The sound is not good because the Cheesecake factory was packed that afternoon and the only place we could get interviews done (it was raining outside) was in the hallway leading to the bathroom! (LOL). Each lady genuinely shares why she's locked or natural.

We've come to find that it's more about becoming natural than focusing on any particular style or method to wear your nappy hair! Of course since it's a Sisterlock gathering, most of the women talk about why they love Sisterlocks. Each video can only be found here, on the Locked Hair Blog Exchange, or possibly on each ladies blogs, if they have one. You will not find their testimonies in a search on google video because I uploaded them as "unlisted" in a search on google. My photos from the event are in my fotki. Your comments are welcome and please forward this blog post to your family and friends who are curious about going natural and especially about the dynamic versitility of wearing your hair locked! Enjoy!!
























The next DFW Sisterlocks Gathering will be in Waco, Tx at Beatnix Coffeehouse on Sunday February 18th from 2-5pm. The pre-paid cost is $17 which includes dinner and tea catered by Blaneks Catering of Waco. If you'd like to attend, please email me off line at sweetiepp03-bloggin at yahoo.com

Fantastic job on the video interviews. I couldn't hear audio on some of them. Did I do something wrong?

Bravo, Bravo! What an awesome presentation! I also had trouble hearing all of the audio in sequence however, to get around that I would leave the post and come back to it and pick up where I left off. It took me about 3 trys to hear all of the presentations but I heard them all and they were wonderful. It was nice to put voices with some of the familiar faces. Fantastic job!

Thanks ladies for checking out the videos. I need to do an updated video collection so you can see how much each lady's locs have grown. I know mine has grown since this was shot. Blessings...

Thank you so much for this post. I began my Sisterlock journey 3/24/2010 and love it so far. I love these blogs as they provide information for someone like myself who is just starting out. I can't wait to attend some Sisterlock gatherings to meet others.
