Sisterlocks

Post by Jayla » Fri Sep 07, 2018 6:31 pm

Does anyone here know anything about sisterlocks? If so, share what you know below! It can be anything, from different locking patterns to retightenings, diy or by a consultant/trainee, cost, personal experience or experience of someone you know, anything! I really want to get sisterlocks and want to make sure I am as informed as possible.

Don’t know what sisterlocks are? A quick Google search of the term will immediately bring up pictures. I might even post some favorites later.



**I understand that these are “permanent” like other type a locs and that this isn’t a lighthearted decision. I’ve been interested and researching them for about a year and am certain this is something I want to do with my hair. This isn’t a decision I’m making because I don’t like my loose natural hair; rather, I just love sisterlocks so much and have taken the time to know the ins and outs of the style.

Here are some photos. I tried to get a range in terms of where the people were in their journey: one with “mature” locks (bottom), one who had them freshly established for the first time (top), and one in between (middle). Sisterlocks can grow long and healthy (with proper care, of course) and can be colored!
