Q:What are Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™?
A:Sisterlocks™ are uniform locks that allow you to style and manage your hair without relaxers, gels or waxes like those used in traditional hair locking methods. When properly maintained, the result is a neat, manicured and easily styled locked hair. The small size and parting grid form 400 locks and up.

Q:What should I expect from a Sisterlocks™ Consultant?
A:You should expect to receive your Initial Consultation, Locking Session, First Follow Up visit, and Customer Starter Kit as a package. Expect to be educated during your Initial Consultation, and test locks to be installed.Your consultant should give you an idea of what to expect as your locks mature, then be available to celebrate every phase of your development.
Q:How long does my hair need to be to start my Sisterlocks™?
A:Sisterlocks™ can be installed with just 1½ inches of natural unprocessed hair, I suggest that clients have 2 inches or longer of virgin hair and may begin with 1½ inches with relaxed hair. I recommend that if you are transitioning from a relaxer to Sisterlocks that you do not trim the relaxer off prior to the installation.
Q:Is my hair type right for Sisterlocks™?
A:All hair with a curl or wave pattern is the right type for Sisterlocks™. Sisterlocks™ has developed several “locking patterns”, one of which is just right for your hair type.
Q:How long does the Establishment take?
A:Depending on your hair length the installation process can take 18 to 24 hours (which is spread out over 2 consecutive days). You should not schedule anything on the day of your installation as the time might vary.
Q:Can you take Sisterlocks™ out?
A:Yes, though the procedure is tedious. 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:I suffer from alopecia or thin hair; will Sisterlocks™ cause further damage?
A:No, Sisterlocks™ should never cause pain or leave your scalp feeling tight .The process is gentler on our hair and scalp. In many cases the thickness and/or density of your hair improves. Over time as your locks fully develop and grow, your styling options will increase. You must comply with your dermatologist recommendations and treatment plan.
Q:Can you get Sisterlocks™ on relaxed hair?
A:Yes, you can as long as you have at least 2″ inches of new growth. Your locking process will take longer due to permed hair never locking. Over a period of time the premed ends should be trimmed off.
Q:Will you be able to get Sisterlocks™ Colored?
A:It is advised that you color your hair prior to your locking session and not again until your hair has settled or is completely locked.
