Consultations are typically around 1 hour in length. We'll discuss the Sisterlocks hair locking process and your past hair styling habits to best assess the right plan for your hair.
During this time, you will receive a cluster of sample locks (pictured below) to help determine your natural hair texture and which locking pattern is best suited for you. Sample locks will be in groups of around 8-12
To prep for your consultation, your hair should be:
If you are transitioning from chemically processed hair to natural hair, at least 1.5” - 2” of new growth is necessary. note: you do not need to cut off your relaxed hair
If you have recently relaxed your hair or are between braiding appointments, you will need to reschedule the consultation. Additionally, if you are suffering from any scalp conditions that require medical treatment, for health code reasons please reschedule when the condition has improved.
