With Sisterlocks The Kitchen Is Now a Breeze!


Remember the days when it was time to get the kitchen done? As most know the kitchen, located at the nape of the neck is where natural hair wearers experience the most discomfort. In the kitchen area the hair is normally a tighter curl pattern and tends to form small knots that tend to tangle together, this area can be very painful when trying to comb out even with the use of various styling aides. Whether it was my mom combing my kitchen out with a regular comb with hair grease followed by a hot comb to straighten it further, or a midweek touch up, I dreaded it each time, there was nothing nice about getting my kitchen done…Well, with Sisterlocks  it’s a different story, the hair is gently placed in an environment with an instrument specifically designed to establish Sisterlocks, this allows the hair to do what it wants to do naturally which is to coil and curl. Once the Sisterlocks have been established the maintenance is not  painful and does not cause undue and unnecessary stress on the hair or the hair follicles henceforth no more tears, burns or grease and  working in the kitchen is simply a breeze… What are your memories of your kitchen?

The Journey Continues…


This little seven yr. old will be more than happy when we’re done.  Today she shared that she won’t miss having to wet her hair in the shower then condition it and let mommy pick it out. She can hardly wait.  Today we locked for 5 1/2 hrs.  Eleven hours total. One more day left. Stretching out the time with little peeps is the only way to go….Daydreaming about tomorrow 🙂PhotoGrid_1439509997331

4C Type Hair + Sisterlocks = Beautiful!

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.
