Did You Do Your Homework?​

The best Sisterlocks® Consultants LOVE dealing with clients who are well informed! Take a tour through these documents to help ensure you'll be making the right choices as you embark on your Sisterlocks® journey.

Sisterlocks® policy is to encourage clients to gather as much information as possible BEFORE having Sisterlocks® done. Sisterlocks® is not a fad, or a short-term hairdo, so you will want to get a good idea of the commitment you will be making.

Sisterlocks® is a trademark company founded in 1993 by Dr. JoAnne Cornwell. The Home Office is in San Diego, California, and there are trained practitioners and Certified Training Associates in over 30 other states. Take the time to learn as much as you need to know about the real Sisterlocks®. Make sure you understand what you can expect from a competent, ethical practitioner. An informed client is the best assurance of satisfaction! Don't accept less than you deserve!

Sisterlocks® is offered as a package of 3 visits:

First Visit:  The Consultation

Second Visit: The Locking Session

Third Visit: Follow-up

We recommend that you schedule your first few re-tightening visits at 4-6 week intervals. This way the progress of your locks can be monitored. As your locks mature, your Consultant will be able to determine how often you will need to come in for retightenings on a regular basis. The average time between visits is 4-8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of growth.

Frequently Ask Questions: 

There are a few questions and answers that just about every new or future Sisterlocks® candidate client should ask, and even more importantly, you should be seeking definitive answers. 


What are Sisterlocks®?

Sisterlocks® is a natural hair management system that allows women with tightly textured hair to take advantage of a wide range of today's hairstyles without having to alter the natural texture of their hair.


Do I have to have 'fine' hair for Sisterlocks® to work on me?

Not at all! In fact, the coarse, thick 'nappy' hair is best for Sisterlocks®. Your natural abundant texture adds body and makes styling easier.


Can I get Sisterlocks® if I have relaxed hair?

Yes. Though the transition will take more time, your hair care professional who is trained in Sisterlocks® techniques can help you make that transition. Your styling options will increase as your natural texture grows out.


Does this mean that once I get Sisterlocks®, I can still change hairstyles?

Yes! Sisterlocks® is a lot less limiting than extensions because it is your natural hair. You can curl it, braid it, wear a ponytail, cut it, spray or mousse it, wear bangs and parts - You name it!a story and let your users know a little more about you.


How long does it take to do Sisterlocks®?

The initial locking process takes about two thirds as long as getting extensions of comparable size. For medium length hair this means about eight to twelve hours (maybe longer!). The beauty of Sisterlocks® is that tightening them as your hair grows out is extremely simple, since there are no extensions to remove and re-set.


Will Sisterlocks® cause my hair to break or thin?

Just the opposite! Sisterlocks® is a gentle technique that requires no chemicals, no excessive tightening, and causes no damaging abrasion to the hair or scalp. You will find  that with regular care, your locks will grow and grow, and your styling options will increase.


Can I do the Sisterlocks® myself? 

This is not advised. Not all hair types require the same locking technique. Your hair care professional is the best trained to give you locks that will be best suited to  you. Also, many hair care professionals are trained to give you cuts, styles and  grooming tips that will ensure the lasting beauty of your locks.


Can Sisterlocks® be taken out of my hair once they are installed in my hair?

Technically, yes, though the procedure is so tedious, you will not want to get Sisterlocks® with that intention. Anyway, once you discover the range of freedom with Sisterlocks®, you won't want to go back! Finally, there is a way of celebrating the natural beauty of our hair with Sisterlocks®!
