Reasons Why You Should Get Sisterlocks
Hairstyles come and go, and over the decades we have seen lots of hairstyles come and go. Natural hair is no exception. The kicker with natural hair is that going natural often means a change of lifestyle and not just a simple hairdo. Luckily, when you embrace natural hair, there are a variety of natural hairstyles that you can choose to wear. One that gives you freedom due to their versatility is Sisterlocks.
Before deciding to install Sisterlocks, it is important to know that:
- They can be expensive to fix and maintain.
- They will bring a change in your lifestyle. For instance, if you were used to using combs, you will no longer need them. Also, how you washed your hair and the products you used will also change.
- It is a journey. Embrace it. You will have to be patient and understand that your hair will go through various stages to achieve the full benefits of Sisterlocks.
Six reasons why you should get Sisterlocks
They are versatile
Sisterlocks are the most versatile locking method available. They give you many styling options depending on your preference. For instance, if you want them to look bigger, you can use the two strand twisting method. Also, if you have curly ones, you can flat iron them to make them straight. Due to their small size that mimics individual hair strands, you can style them in any way you want.
They look neat
From far away, Sisterlocks looks like tiny braids. If you have thin hair, after installing Sisterlocks, they will give you a full head look whereby your scalp will hardly show. However, this is only possible once your Sisterlocks are past the baby stage.
Sisterlocks always looks groomed. Due to the small size of the locks, the white bulb (which is the shedding hair that is trapped in your locks) is not visible. Therefore, you will not need to dye your hair regularly to cover the white bulbs.
No products are used during retightening
During retightening, no locking product or beeswax is added to your Sisterlocks. Therefore, you will not have problems with product build up in your hair which would cause you discomfort in the future.
They give you the freedom
Do you always wish to feel the cool breeze flowing through your hair? How about dancing in the rain without worrying about water or wind? Well, Sisterlocks will give you this freedom!
They require some maintenance
Retightening is done every 4-6 weeks. Therefore, you can go through the entire time without doing anything to your hair. All you need to do is shampoo with a residue-free shampoo, rinse thoroughly, and squeeze the excess water out of your Sisterlocks.
Do not rub them as it will make them frizzy. Then separate using fingers to prevent tangling and spray hair oil carefully along the line. Massage oil into your scalp gently taking care not to scrub the locks themselves.
Sisterlocks make thin hair look fuller giving it a gorgeous look. With Sisterlocks, bad hair days may become a thing of the past.
