Long locks, short locs, medium sized locks they come in all different shapes and sizes. Each set is different in their own special way. When I first discovered Sisterlocks I was so excited! I wanted my Sisterlocks to be just like Dr Cornwell’s locks, long flowing and beautiful. Little did I know that my locks would have their own very unique look, feel and style and be every bit as beautiful. Just as no two sets of fingerprints are identical no two heads of locks are identical, they can be very similar but not identical. Differences in hair density, texture and length play a huge role in the outcome of your Sisterlocks and woe unto me if I forget how they’re maintained. You and your consultant are partners on this journey of caring for your locks. I encourage my clients to love every stage of the journey. Starting out for some may be a love hate relationship but as your locks evolve you fall more in love with them. As your locks evolve embrace them, your Sisterlocks journey is just that “yours,” you may compare notes but never compare locks. Your lock journey is unique to you. As the lyrics to an oldie advises…”Love the one you’re with” My advice to you is to …Love the locks you have, embrace them and enjoy the journey.
