During this session, we will discuss your personal hair care history, your styling preferences and your lifestyle in order to determine if Sisterlocks is right for you. You will also have “Test Locks” put in your hair which will allow me to asses how they will hold, check sizes, amount of scalp showing, settling-in time, etc. This consultation is essential for both you and me, as your Consultant, to ensure you get your Sisterlocks done in the most suitable way. I will also give you a firm Sisterlocks price based on the length and density of your hair.

Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 10-20 hours or even longer in some cases, depending on the length and density of your hair. The average Sisterlocks customer will leave this session with around 400 locks and a whole new attitude about their natural hair journey! I will provide you with a Sisterlocks Starter Kit that includes the proper Sisterlocks shampoo for starting your locks, tiny rubber bands for bundling your hair when you wash it, and “tip sheets” on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle in, using Sisterlocks hair products. We will schedule your follow-up visit before you leave as good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks hair over time.

You will need to schedule your follow-up visit for around 3 or 4 weeks from the time you first get your locs put in. I will check how your Sisterlocks are progressing, tighten them up and give you an idea of how long the settling-in process is likely to take. I’ll remind you about using the Sisterlocks shampoo to keep your investment in great condition and free from oil and link build-up. We can now begin to talk more about your natural hair care routine and Sisterlocks hairstyles and tips for getting the look that’s right for you!
