The Sisterlocks TM Package
Authorized Consultants offer Sisterlocks as a package of 3 visits:
First Visit: The Consultation
During this session you and your Consultant 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 to see if they will hold, check sizes, amount of scalp showing, settling-in time, etc. This consultation is essential for both you and your Consultant to ensure you get your Sisterlocks done in the most suitable way.
Second Visit: The Locking Session
Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 18 to 25 hours or even longer in some cases (spread out over 2 or 3 day sessions). The average Sisterlocks' customer will leave this session with over 450 locks and a whole new attitude! Your Consultant will provide you with a "Starter Kit" that includes the proper shampoo for starting your locks, tiny rubber bands and "tip sheets" on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle-in. Be sure to schedule your follow-up before you leave. Good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks over time.
Third Visit: Follow-up
You will need to schedule your follow-up visit within about a month from the time you first get your locks installed, and after you've had time to shampoo them a couple of times. Your consultant will monitor the integrity of your locks, tighten them and give you an idea of how long the settling-in process is likely to take. You can also begin discussing styling tips for the "total look" that's right for you!
Ongoing Follow-up Visits (additional cost)
We recommend that you schedule your first few re-tightening visits at 4-6 week intervals. This way, the progress of your locks can be monitored. As your locks mature, your Consultant will be able to determine how often you will need to come in for re-tightenings. The average time between visits is 6-8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of the hair growth.
It is my recommendation after your initial install and 3 week followup, to have every new Sisterlock Client come in every 4 weeks until a frequency time frame is established. Based on how your locks are settling, your growth time and length of appointment we will come up with the frequency that works for both of us.
