Q: What is Sisterlocks™?
A: Sisterlocks™ is a hairlocking technique which simply creates a stable woven framework in a lock of hair within which the natural interlocking process can take place. This allows people with tightly textured hair to take advantage of a wide range of today’s hairstyles without having to alter the natural texture of their hair.
Q: Once I get Sisterlocks™, will I still be able to change hairstyles?
A: Yes! Sisterlocks™ is a lot less limiting than extensions because it is your natural hair. You can curl it, braid it, wear a ponytail, cut it, spray or mousse it, wear bangs and parts – You name it!
Q: How long does it take to do?
A: The initial locking process takes about 2/3 as long as getting extensions of comparable size. Other factors that will affect the length of the initial locking session are: hair length, density, condition, size of head and lock size desired.
Q: Will Sisterlocks™ cause my hair to break or thin?
A: Absolutely not! Just the opposite! Sisterlocks™ is a gentle technique that requires no chemicals, no excessive tightening, and causes no damaging abrasion to the hair or scalp. You will find that with regular care, your locks will grow and grow, and your styling options will increase.
Q: Can I get Sisterlocks™ if I have relaxed hair?
A: Yes you can, and.I can help you make that transition. Your styling options will increase as your natural texture grow.
Q: Can you put my Sisterlocks™ in so that there won’t be any parting?
A: The answer to that one is no. With a fresh head of Sisterlocks™ you are going to see some parting. Even if the client has very thick hair, there will still be some parting.
Q: How long will it take for the parts to fill in?
A: It depends on the rate that your hair grows. Usually within the first three weeks or after your first shampoo you will notice your parts filling in. Thinner hair takes a little while longer.
Q: What about coloring the Sisterlocks™?
A: I don’t recommend coloring before your Sisterlocks™ are installed. You should wait until the locks are settled in or well on their way. If you color your hair before your hair is locked you will run into trouble trying to touch up your color while your locks are settling.
