Sisterlocks™ is offered as a 3-visit package:

Professional home environment

First Visit: The Consultation

You should arrive with clean, air-dried hair in its natural state. DO NOT APPLY ANYTHING TO YOUR HAIR… no oil, conditioner, moisturizer, no hair products at all. During the Consultation we will discuss your personal hair care history, lifestyle, and styling preferences in order to determine if Sisterlocks™ is right for you. We will discuss how to maintain and care for your Sisterlocks™, and I will answer any questions you may have.

Several sample locks will be placed in your hair, and you will be asked to wash it at least twice before your Locking Session. This will assist me in determining the correct lock size & pattern, how well the locks will hold, settling-in time, etc.

At the conclusion of your consultation you will be quoted a price for the establishment of your Sisterlocks™. Pricing is dependent upon hair length, density, and size of head. The Locking Session will then be scheduled for 3 – 4 weeks after the Consultation. A deposit is required to hold your appointment for your Locking Session and will be applied towards the total cost of the 3-Visit Package.

 

Second Visit: The Locking Session

Please arrive for your Locking Session with hair clean, air-dried, and free from any oils, conditioners, moisturizers, or grease. I schedule these sessions over a 2 to 3-day period, so wear comfortable clothing, bring a good book, a tablet, DVDs, and lots of patience. I will provide the snacks, a large selection of movies, free Wi-Fi, and a comfortable atmosphere. At the end of this session you will be given a Starter Kit containing Sisterlocks™ starter shampoo, rubber bands, and a tip sheet on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle in. And oh yeah… you’ll also have a full head of beautiful Sisterlocks™ and a whole new attitude!

Before you leave we will schedule your follow-up visit for 3 – 4 weeks after the Locking Session. It’s very important that you keep this appointment and all appointments that we schedule in the future, as good timely maintenance is the key to gorgeous healthy Sisterlocks™ over time.

Third Visit: The Follow-Up

The Follow-Up visit should be scheduled no more than 4 weeks after the Locking Session… preferably 3 weeks after, during which time you will have washed your hair at least twice. At this time I will examine your locks to monitor their integrity. I will retighten them and give you an estimate as to how long it will take for your locks to settle in. Please note: If this Follow-Up visit does not take place within 4 weeks of your locking session, or if you come to this visit with product in your hair or otherwise having not followed proper maintenance instructions, you will be charged a full Retightening fee. You will then receive your free retightening at a later date.

Ongoing Maintenance

Once you have made the investment in getting Sisterlocks™ you will want to protect that investment. Sisterlocks™ are LOW maintenance, not NO maintenance. It is very important to the development of your newly-formed Sisterlocks™ to get regular retightenings in order to incorporate the new growth and monitor the progress of your locks. Four-week intervals are recommended to start. As your locks mature, I will be able to determine how often you will need to come in for retightenings. The average time between visits is 4-8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of hair growth.

Hairline Retightening

Retightening of the first 2 rows around the hairline.

Grooming

In a Grooming session I will assess each lock individually and trim loose hairs that are escaping the locks and creating a fuzzy appearance. Note that Grooming isn’t a necessary service; but many clients like a more neat and manicured look to their locks as opposed to a fuzzy look. A perfect example can be found on my personal site where I have been cataloging my Sisterlocks™ journey. You can clearly see the difference before and after Grooming.

Repairs

Occasionally you may find that your locks aren’t as uniform as they should be. This could represent as a lump in the lock, a thin area in the lock, etc., and could be caused by many factors — including medications you may be taking at the time. I will address these as I find them during your Retightening sessions. However, if there is a case where — for whatever reason — there are lots of repairs needed, we can schedule a separate Repair session just for this purpose.

Styling

I currently offer several types of roller sets and simple lock styling without rollers.
