Obtain your Sisterlocks Starter Kit which contains:
  • 1 Starter Shampoo

1. Use Sisterlock starter shampoo as this helps with the locking process

2. No other products to be used in your hair 'ONLY WATER'

3. Braid and band hair before washing

4. Let braids semi-dry before loosing out after wash

5. Do not over manipulate your hair

6. Cover your hair at night (Don't use cotton)

7. Do not use wigs, braids or weaves in your hair

8. Expect scalp itching: 

  • Use 15-15 drops of witch hazel to 100 ml water
  • 1 teaspoon of glycerin to 95 ml water

9. Have patience 

After the locks are put in, follow your Consultant's instructions to make your transition go as smoothly as possible. Be conscientious about your follow-up visits!!! As your natural hair grows out, it will be retightened regularly, and your relaxed ends monitored. 

Take pride in your natural hair, Sisterlocks will make it easy for you to discover over time the Natural beauty of your wonderful hair. As your locks grow, your styling options will increase. Don't be surprised if your self-confidence increases as well. Now begin celebrating the beauty and versatility of your natural hair with Sisterlocks, the new way to be you!!!

Settling into your Sisterlocks may take from one to six months or more!

This is because it takes a certain amount of time for your locks to find their 'home'. Expect some slippage of the locks during this time, especially if you are transitioning from relaxed hair. 

  • Ask Questions
  • Be Patient
  • Follow Your Consultant's Instructions


  1. Having patience is key. You will frustrate yourself if your compare your locs with that of others. So patient and allow your locs to do its thing in time.

  2. I started my locs earlier this year and I still have a long way to go.

  3. Yes Johnny...(according to Karla)...patience is the key!!!

  4. I really like that starters are supplied with a kit and dos and donts!
