Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ are offered as a package of 3 visits, including a Consultation, the Locking Session and a Follow-Up Visit.
First Visit: The Consultation
During this session, you will discuss with your Consultant or Trainee, your personal hair care history, your styling preferences and your lifestyle in order to determine if Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ 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 the both of you, to ensure you get your Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ done in the most suitable way. Your package price should be quoted during the consultation.
Second Visit: The Locking Session
Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 10 to 15 hours per day or even longer in some cases. the average Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ customer will leave this session with an average of 400 locks or more,™ and a whole new attitude! A “Starter Kit” is provided. It 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 visit before leaving on the last day of your installation. Good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks™/Brotherlocks™ over time. The remainder of your package price usually is paid during the first (1st) day of the 2-day session (if hair is longer can be 3 days or more).
Third Visit: Follow-Up
You will need to schedule your follow-up visit after at least two shampoos, which is usually within a month (1 month or 4 weeks) from the time you first get your locks put in. I will monitor the integrity of your locks, tighten them up 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! The fee for this visit will be included in your Package price.
Ongoing Follow-Up Visits
It is recommended 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 or trainee can determine how often you will need to come in for re-tightening. The average time between visits is 4 – 8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of hair growth.
