First Visit: The Consultation
During this session we will discuss your personal hair care history, styling preference and your lifestyle in order to determine if Sisterlocks™ is right for you. You will also have test locks put in your hair to see if they will hold, check sizes, amount of scalp showing, setting-in time, etc so please arrive at the consultation with clean, loose hair for this process. This consultation is essential to ensure that you get your Sisterlocks™ done in the most suitable way.
Second Visit: The Locking Session
Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 12 to 16 hours or even longer in some cases. The average Sisterlocks™ customer will leave this session with an average of 400 locks and a whole new attitude! After the completion of the locking process you will be provided with a starter kit that includes the proper shampoo for starting your locks, tiny rubber bands and “tip sheets” on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle in. Be sure to schedule your follow-up visit before you leave. Good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks™ over time.
Third Visit: Follow-up
You will need to schedule your follow-up visit after at least two shampooings, which is usually about 2-3 weeks after your locking session. Locd Tresses will monitor the integrity of your locks, tighten them up and give you an idea of how long the setting-in process is likely to take. You can also begin discussing styling tips for the "total look" that is right for you!
Ongoing Follow-up Visits
It is important that you schedule your first few retightening visits at 4-6 week intervals. This way the progress of your locks can be closely monitored. As your locks mature, it will be determined how often you will need to come in for retightenings. The average time between visits is 6-8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of hair growth.
