On today I started this little one’s Sisterlocks. This beauty’s hair type is considered a 4C..Tightly coiled hair, rough cuticle, great spring-back properties and is considered the best for locking. The length of her hair is roughly between five and six inches long, because of the tightness of her curl pattern it can shrink down to half that length after combing out. Mom and daughter are looking forward to the future when the LOC method for maintaining her hair will be a thing in the past. LOC is an acronym for…Liquid to loosen the hair, mainly water ~ Cream to untangle ~ Oil to seal the moisture in. Other benefits of the Sisterlocks lifestyle are no more tears when combing the hair out, just more time to enjoy each other and the hair itself. We started this morning at 9:30am, took an hour for lunch along with a couple of small breaks here and there. My little client busied herself with movies, books and snacks. We finished up for today at around 4:30p.m. All together we averaged approx six hours total locking time. The journey continues on tomorrow swing back by and see our progress.

Helping young girls feel good about themselves and giving them a healthy “hair image”….PRICELESS!
