I would like to apologize to my readers for referring to my sisterlocks as micros in the beginning, since that is not the whole truth. The reason I refer to them as such was solely based on when I entered the picture, and me trying to figure out what my locks size were since it was not as common. I later found out that I had "traditional" Sisterlocks, which wasn't that much different from any others "traditional" Sisterlocks.
When I was researching sisterlocks, the size that I
had was very common, but when I actually entered the picture, I notice a lot of
individual I ran into had much bigger locks. So I started calling my
sisterlocks "micros sisterlocks". I tried for many months to figure out what my actually size was and I finally stop referring to my sisterlocks as micro, when I went to the
sisterlocks explosion, and asked the creator herself what my size was.
I came to understand now, that it is hard to explain the
size of sisterlocks, because consultants are taught to install a range of size
that are done not only to make your sisterlocks stylable, but also fuller. The
Sisterlocks methods also has to consider the thickness of one’s hair, texture,
etc. I have thick full hair, just like my daughter, so the micros were not
really needed on the edge to have my sisterlocks looking like it is currently.
I don't know if my sizes are even offered anymore (many
consultant refuse to do it). I do know this though, my consultant is the only one that
I know of personally that still does this size, and that is her niche. But as I
stated above, micros are not needed on the edge to have your sisterlocks
looking like mines.
By the way, this is what I know about my size. I have micros
only on the very edge of my head (like maybe three to four rows) then the locks
go from mostly standard small to medium. You properly are shocked at this
statement, but that is the truth. I don't know what the sizes of others
sisterlocker are, and I won't be able to tell you either, since I have not been
trained to tell the difference.
As for what to ask about "sizing" when getting a
consultantation....I told my consultant I wanted my locks to look like hers, since I
like full hair, and I simply trusted her to do it like hers. I
hope I have answered all your questions regarding my sisterlocks size and wish everyone the best in choosing what is best for them.
