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.

Locs & Lilla Rose


I discovered Lilla Rose hair jewelry many years back. As a wearer of Sisterlocks I was always on the lookout for hair accessories that were locs friendly. While at a local street fair I discovered the perfect accessory for my hair, the flexi clip. I immediately fell in love with the flexi hair clip. Not only was the clip beautiful but it was also very comfortable. The clip is made using piano wire which allows for ease in placement and removal. Piano wire is very flexible which allows for movement to accommodate various densities of hair   The pin is attached so there’s no chance of loosing it. The amazing flexi comes in seven different sizes, mini to mega.. The mega flexi was created specifically for large amounts of hair. Big locs…No worries we’ve got you covered. In addition to the flexi there are hair bands, sticks, bobbies, u-pins and more. Lilla Rose hair accessories work! Treat yourself to Lilla Rose today💜🌷

KISS Keep It Simple Styles


As a wearer of Sisterlocks I’ve found over the years that less is best when styling my hair.  As a Sisterlocks consultant I encourage my clients to do the same. Sisterlocks is a natural hair care system that allows you to experience the freedom of your natural hair in all it’s glory with a minimum amount of maintenance. Note, I didn’t say maintenance free but in comparison to other styles it’s about as maintenance free as you’ll get.  My go to style is the full ponytail with twists on both sides.  I normally secure it with Lilla Rose hair accessories. I’ve found this line to be comfortable, beautiful and easy on the locks. The smooth edges don’t cut into the locks and because the flexi is made from piano wire it’s extremely flexible and adjustable. Our flexis come in seven different sizes ranging from mini to mega and works well in most hair types. Remember to keep it simple ladies.

Protect your Locks…


With colder temperatures we’re inclined to wear shawls sweaters and hats to keep warm. Be mindful of winter wear that sheds excessively, many of the fibers can become embedded in locked hairstyles. Protect your locks by wearing satin lined caps or scarves with a low pile (yarn count). Lilla Rose hair jewelry also helps keep our locks up and safe from winter wear that has looser fibers. Stay warm.

Micro Sisterlocks TM…Oh My!!! They Are Lovley!


PhotoGrid_1441232468787

Micros definitely create the fullest look with Sisterlocks, when a Sister with micros walks in the room all heads turn in her direction. Micros are amazingly beautiful and easy to style, the tiny locks lend themselves to a myriad of styles. Up-dos, free styles and braid outs all look stunning with micros. Although they create the fullest look with Sisterlocks and style beautifully there are some cautions…Micros cost more because they take a lot more time to put in and maintain. Your regular appointments take much longer than for someone with average-size Sisterlocks and please don’t miss an appointment, if you do prepare to be in the chair much longer. When I think about retightening  micros I have flashbacks of my  Pre-Sisterlocks days where I would arrive at the salon on time for my appointments and not leave until hours later.  Grooming and maintenance are also more involved as well.  Finally, last but not least micros are more fragile and more prone to breakage than average-sized Sisterlocks. If you’re considering micro Sisterlocks keep the above information in mind and my best to you. Oh My!!! They are lovely, aren’t they?
