What causes shedding when I color my Sisterlocks?

Posted on 14 July, 2014 at 14:11 Comments comments (165)
You have probably heard that if you must color, color your hair before you are installed.  Well personally, I think the most important issue is not timing but results....Know that if you color before or during the initial locking staging, this will prolong the locking process.  Even worse, color is damaging to our hair...open or locked.  With Sisterlocks, it causes shedding of the locks from the tip up.  This is inevitable.  It doesn't matter what brand you use.  Even the Herbatints and Naturtints of the world which are less harmful causes shedding.
 
When you color your locks, the products softens your hair.  Not to mention the conditioning you will need afterwards to treat colored hair.  This softening causes the ends of your beautiful locks which were once solidified to open back up.  What can you do????  Go back to the Sisterlocks Starter Shampoo to try to close those buds.  I say if you must color.....color.  But know that it is damaging.

Should I Cut my Damaged Hair Before an Installation

This question was posed to me by a potential client who's hair has lost it's natural curl pattern due to heat damage.  Her hair is completely natural but bone straight.  As the new growth grows in, it becomes obvious that the hair has been damaged because of the two totally different textures and no there is not any relaxer on the ends.
 
When you have heat damage or product damage that may have changed your natural curl pattern, it is not necessary to cut the damage hair before your install with Sisterlocks.  However, the maintenance will be more labor intensive because you will need to set your hair often.  If you don't set your hair, your new set of Sisterlocks will just hang straight.  Most new Sisterlocks have curly tips due the one's natural curl pattern but when no natural curl pattern exist, you will need to style a little more.
 
I say no big deal at all.  It is a personal preference.  I just want to put it out there for those natural beauties that like their hair straight all the time.....DAMAGING!!!!  Be careful and give your hair a break from time to time.

What products do I use for my natural hair??

Hello all,
 
So much for posting weekly lol...but I never stop thinking about natural hair especially Sisterlocks.  So I have been having a lot of discussions about products as of late.  Also I just recently became a distributor of Sisterlocks products, which are truly the best products for our Sisterlocks (plug).  However, when it comes to open natural hair, not all natural products work for all hair types.  It is best to know your hair type(s) which will save you time, energy and money when you purchase product.  By knowing your hair type, you prevent becoming a product junkie (meaning buying product and using it once or twice only to put it in the cabinet or under the sink never to be touched again).
 
Stop wasting money on unnecessary product.  Do research about your natural hair and create a regiment that works best for your life style and hair.  The hair car industry is a $7 billion dollar industry....with people of color manufacturing less than 10% while contributing to 90% of the revenue to this industry.  See what I mean (balance)???  Let's be smart about the products we use in our natural hair.  Let's change the way we treat our natural hair by changing the way we purchase product.
