Gigglz: How long did you want sisterlocks before actually getting them installed?
I’ve wanted Sisterlocks for years. Before I started my traditional locks 7 years ago I met a woman with Sisterlocks that she got installed in another state. I was not able to find anyone in Houston who did them so I went traditional. 7 years later, here I am!!!
Gigglz: How long were you natural before getting sisterlocks?
I was natural 1 ½ years before traditionally locking and I wore traditional locks for 7 years before I decided to get sisterlocks.
Gigglz: How many consultations did you have before deciding on one, and did price play a part in your decision (honestly)?
I had 3 phone consultations with 2 consultants and 1 trainee, but I only did 1 actual consultation. The consultant I went with was actually more expensive than the others, so I guess price did not play a part.
Gigglz: What made you choose your consultant?
There were so many signs pointing me to my consultant. I got a really good vibe from her through our phone conversation. She even told me how to take down my traditional locks so that I could save more length. I got her number from the Sisterlock website, then when I talked to a lady at my church about her SLs I discovered it was the same consultant! After talking on the phone and scheduling the consultation I met another one of her clients in the grocery store when I was compelled to ask her if she had sisterlocks. To top it all off, she lives less than 10 minutes away!
Gigglz: How many hours did it take?
17.5 hours in one day!
Gigglz: What was your initial reaction to them?
I loved them from test locks all the way to install! I guess because I have wanted them for so long, I didn’t care what they looked like in the beginning because I knew their potential, but I was absolutely satisfied the moment they were all in. I was fascinated with the parts!
Gigglz: Do you see any disadvantages to sisterlocks?
Nope! I am a pretty committed person. I mean, I wore traditional locks for 7 years. So I was cool with committing to sisterlocks. I prefer sisterlocks to traditionals because I will be able to style them more.
Gigglz: What products do you use and how often do you use them?
I’m one month SL’d so I am only using water spritz and the SL starter shampoo.
Gigglz: What hair accessories do you wear?
None right now…..I am soooo low maintenance
Gigglz: What do you wear to protect your hair at night?
I wear a satin bonnet, and it seems to be working out nicely
Gigglz: How do you feel about your SL's today?
I am absolutely in LOVE!!!!! I play in my hair often, because I am excited about how small they are. I have been able to put curls in my hair (thanks for the lock loop tips) and I don’t have any complaints.
