What are Sisterlocks?

Sisterlocks are tiny uniform locks that are the result of a precision parting grid, and the use of a specialized tool that places the hair into its locking formation. The Sisterlocks method does not require the use of waxes or jells. The small size and parting grid form a lock that is easily styled.

I learned at a forum not too long ago that, you can actually treat sisterlocks like they're straight hair. Being that they're so much smaller than regular locks. You can do almost any hair style!
They grow the same as any other hair.

When I saw this lady with them, I thought she had micro braids at first. She said that she gets that alot, people thinking her hair is weave. It was in fact hers, and they were very long, and gorgeous!

How long does hair need to be to start Sisterlocks?
In general, Sisterlocks can be started with 1 1/2 inches of natural unprocessed hair. Where shorter hair can be caught in a locking pattern, 1 1/2 inches will ensure the first stages of locking will be easier to manage during your home care.

Are Sisterlocks permanent?
During the first 6 months of development, Sisterlocks can be removed. Removal will likely take more time, and be more costly than your Initial Locking Session. Most consultants will not lock your hair if removal is a great concern. You should be sure that the Sisterlocks method is right for you.

Is my hair type right for Sisterlocks?
All hair with a curl or wave pattern is the right type for Sisterlocks. Sisterlocks has developed  several "locking patterns", one of which is just right for your hair type.

    I had sisterlocks for over six years and unfortunately I have suffered traction alopecia. It may be less likely with sisterlocks but it does occur. I did NOT pull my hair back frequently. I usually wore my locks loose. However, my hair has always been rather sparse along the edges and I did have thinning of locks but did not realize the impact. I have since cut my locks off and wear my hair in an afro. I would recommend anyone with locks to monitor their hair espcially for thinning locks. Also, let the loctician know that you would like to be alerted if they notice any thinning. Several of my locs have fallen out and several are very thin now.
