Loc into Your Natural Style

Do's & Don'ts

DO
After your installation, you will need to shampoo with the Sisterlocks™ Getting Started Shampoo. This shampoo is especially formulated to assist in the locking process. Never skip this step or you CAN prolong your locking process. Sisterlocks™ Getting Started Shampoo, is also great for those problem locks that don't seem to want to lock. There is never a set time that you will stop using the Sisterlocks™ Getting Started Shampoo. Everyone's hair texture is different, and individual locking times are different too so continue to use the Sisterlocks™ Getting Started Shampoo until locks are COMPLETELY locked...

DON'T
Use cheap shampoos or other hair products (even after your hair is completely locked). Please do not shampoo with anything you get your hands on.  Most Sisterlocks™ wearers have spent $500 & upward on having their locks installed so please be cautious of what you put in your hair. If you are not using the Sisterlocks™ line of products, please research and purchase a professional line of hair care products, that will keep your locks well moisturized.

DO
Use or invest in proper styling tools. Pipe cleaners are used for cleaning pipes and have a wire inside which may cause damage to your locs if not used carefully. Avoid application of heat directly to your locs and be mindful that hair types are different and some techiques can weaken, break or cause excessive frizziness. There are many styling tools on the market (lock loops, wrap-a-loc, perm rods w/end papers) all are favorable.

DON'T
Excessively manipulate your Sisterlocks™. This is very important in the beginning stages. Excessive manipulation (of your locs) WILL prolong the locking process. Sisterlocks™ will need to settle in the beginning stages, in order that they take on their locking form. Certain styling practices should wait until locks are in the latter part of the settling stage. You should not (in the beginning stages) overly TOUCH or RAKE through locs with your fingers.. We call this " Hands in Locs" syndrome... Sisterlocks™ start the locking process from the tip/end of the lock...up to the root/scalp....Any excessive touching/raking through the locks with your fingers, CAN prolong the process. Instead...just place your locks in the position you choose to style it in.

 

DO
Hair color looks beautiful on Sisterlocks™. However permanent color should only applied well before installation or after locs have been completely locked. Semi-permanent color on the other hand, should be safe to use, as long as the locs have passed the encasing stage.  Note: Applying any hair color (even semi-permanent color) in the beginning stages, can prolong the locking process. It is always best to wait until locs are mature. Permanent color should ONLY be applied by a lic. professional colorist. If applied by a non-professional, you run the risk of locks opening and at worst breakage. It is worth going to a professional, if using permanent color, to keep locs healthy and looking good.

 

DON'T

Try everything that you see on youtube. There is an abundance of videos which will give you styling and maintenance tips but everything is NOT good for everybody. That 2 minute clip of a self-applied home color looks nice, but you won't see the follow-up when that person wakes up with her hair on the pillow. Nor will you see the loc damage as a result of a DIY home made tool.


 

DO

YOUR RESEARCH!!! There is much information available via the internet in regards to Siserlocks. Sisterlock consultants (trainee or certified) who are in good standing are listed on the Sisterlocks website. Fees can vary however all operators are REQUIRED to offer a "package price" of at least 3 visits (consultation, installation and retight). As well one should receive an official starter kit when beginning the Sisterlock journey.

 

DON'T
Neglect your Sisterlocks™! Cover your locks up at night or before bed, even if just lounging around on the couch.  Lint is almost impossible to take out of Sisterlocks™. So the only way to prevent locks from getting lint is to ALWAYS cover them, before you start to relax for the evening.  Braid outs, twist outs, roller sets, spiral sets, cornrows are all fine, when wanting to style locs as long as they are not pulled too tight.Tension on Sisterlocks™ are one of the leading causes for our locs to thin and break....NEVER sleep with hard rollers. This is very important for the health of your locks.  Greasy products WILL clog hair follicles, get trapped inside and attract dirt to your locks. If you are looking for healthy, growing locks then keep them clean by shampooing at least once every two weeks (weekly if you exercise regularly) and hydrate your locks between shampoos.
