Tips On Transitioning Into Sisterlocks With Protective Hairstyles


20190522_095710Instead of focusing on the usual protective hairstyles like weaves and wigs, why not try these following styles…

  • WASH-AND-GOS: This style can be done several ways, but the most basic way to accomplish this style is to wash and condition your hair and detangle it thoroughly before styling. Once done, a moisturizing conditioner or leave-in or moisturizer can be used depending on your preference. A styler or gel can be layered on top for added hold if necessary. To ensure that you keep your hair healthy while it is styled, make sure you moisturize your hair as much as it needs it.
  • TWIST/BRAID OUTS: This style can be done on freshly cleansed hair or dry hair that has been stretched for added length and volume. After moisturizing, apply your styler of choice and separate your hair into sections and twist or braid it. For added interest, you could put the ends of your hair or the entire length itself on rollers. Once your hair is completely dry, or after some time has passed, unravel and separate the twists gently to hide the parts and increase the volume. The best part about these styles is that you do not need to rewet your hair to restyle. To make the hair pliable enough to detangle, you can either spray it with water or add a good detangling product, then add a styler if necessary and restyle. Also, to maintain your hair’s health, make sure you moisturize and seal your hair, especially at the ends.
  • Wrap it Up! Experiment with hair wraps, there are many tutorials available that will keep you looking fabulous as you prepare to make that transition to Sisterlocks.

Locks Loops/Soft Spikes


 Lock Loops and Soft Spikes curlers are great styling tools, the results are beautiful, the curlers are quite similar with one notable exception, the Lock Loops have ridges that hold the curler in place. To use I dampen my hair slightly with water, roll the hair onto the curlers and let dry. For tighter curls use smaller amounts of hair and leave the curlers in longer. Lock Loops and Soft Spikes work well with short to medium length hair.

Be a “Diva” about your health as well as your hair…


Many of us are divas about our hair but not our health. As a Sisterlocks consultant many of my clients leave with a minimum of two appointments on my books. The dates are entered into our calendars and alarms are set to make sure they’re not missed. Very seldom are they missed. At Locs of Luv emphasis is placed on providing an environment where it’s relaxed and stress free. We purposely have no TV. How intentional are you as it relates to setting aside your chill time? If you have a favorite place to relax please share in the comment section below. Let’s be divas about our health as well as our hair. Breathe and relax you can do this, your health depends on it.
