Sisterlocks FAQ

Sisterlocks FAQ

Q: What is Sisterlocks?

A: Sisterlocks is a natural hair management system that allows women 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: Can I get Sisterlocks if I have relaxed hair?

A: Yes. Though the transition will take more time, your hair care professional who is trained in Sisterlocks techniques can help you make that transition. Your styling options will increase as your natural texture grows out.

Q: Do I need to have 'fine' hair for Sisterlocks to work?

A: Not at all! In fact, the coarse, thick 'nappy' hair is best for Sisterlocks. Your natural abundant texture adds body and makes styling easier.

Q: Can Sisterlocks be taken out?

A: Technically, yes, though the procedure is so tedious, you will not want to get Sisterlocks with that intention. Anyway, once you discover the range of freedom with Sisterlocks, you won't want to go back! Finally, there is a way of celebrating the natural beauty of our hair with Sisterlocks!

Q: How long does it take to do Sisterlocks?

A: The initial locking process takes about two thirds as long as getting extensions of comparable size. For medium length hair this means about eight to twelve hours (maybe longer!). The beauty of Sisterlocks is that tightening them as your hair grows out is extremely simple, since there are no extensions to remove and re-set.
