Sisterlocks may be seen as a fad or just another new hair style by some, but others see it as neither of these things. It is a journey that takes you from one look to another in a sort of hair, body, mind and spirit ride. This freedom and naturalness is a right-of-passage for the woman that wants that natural look. As the locks grow there is a certain awareness that comes out of the wearer.
There is a certain look of casual elegance that comes with wearing the loose flowing curls which are the sign of sisterlocks. Sisterlocks can be worn in an up-do or long and loose. The ‘do is made up of 300-500 strands of the wearer’s own hair that is first parted and then woven into tiny patterns with a tool that looks something like a crochet hook.
Just when you think your sisterlocks cannot be more fabulous they are. Be very easy with your hair coloring as the locks are very fragile. You should make sure that your colorist has experience with sisterlocks and choose a color that will not strip your hair. A lot of finger combing will shape it up. As sisterlocks grow the more versatile they become. With sisterlocks you can see that a style does not have to be complicated to be beautiful. A shoulder length sisterlocks style has a freestyle flow and can be worn to any event in style and elegance.
You can wear your sisterlocks simply or in casual elegance depending on what you will be doing and where you may be going. When you add volume to the sisterlocks or reshape them around the face you will have an elegant evening look. You will look breathtaking and feel exhilarated as you feel free and natural.
Because of their fragility be careful when you wash your hair. If you make several large braids to secure the locks you can squeeze shampoo into each braid. Rinse your hair the same way. Wash your hair only about twice a week so your hair will not be stripped of its natural oils. Washing your hair less regularly will replenish the natural oils in the hair. Because your sisterlocks are tight there is more of a dead skin cell build up. Using witch hazel and a clean cotton pad clean you scalp regularly, even under the locks.
Be sure to schedule retightening sessions with your hair style professional. As you know, it takes hours to tighten the locks so schedule appointments early. If you retighten regularly you will not have to have them redone. Your stylist will tell you when your next retightening session should be.
