It is so cold outside!!! Protect your Locs!!!

Posted on 8 January, 2014 at 11:59 Comments comments (117)
With historical low temperatures everywhere....it is so important to protect your locs.  The colder the season, the drier your scalp will be.  For people who battle with dry scalp, the cold weather could mean an itchy and inflamed scalp.  Here are a few tips to help get through the cold weather:
 
  • Wash your hair but don't overdo it.  You can get away with excessive washing in the warmer months but over washing your hair removes the natural moisturizers from the your scalp.  Be careful.
 
  • Limit the use of hot water and shampoos; meaning I know it feels great when you wash your haair in hot water but in the winter months go with the luke warm water and shorter shampooing time to help prevent drying of the scalp.
 
  • Avoid putting the heat on "HELL" in your home and car.  I know I know it is so cold and we are tropical birds.  However heat above 78 degrees depletes moisture in the air and adds to a dry scalp.
 
  • Last but not least, don't stop exercising and drinkning water.  A healthy you equals healthy locs.
 
Hope this helps.  Stay warm!!!

Sisterlocks Consultants

Posted on 24 December, 2013 at 9:42 Comments comments (18)
I always tell potential clients that not all Sisterlocks Consultants will work out for everyone.  It could be a scheduling conflict.  It could be personality differences.  It could the space in which you will be receiving services.  Whatever the reason, it is important to find a Sisterlocks Consultant that you are comfortbale with and that you trust will guide you along this journey.  Afterall, you will be with this person initially for 15-20 hours and then every 6-8 weeks there after.  Not to mention the financial commitment.  So I say to all the natural beauties out there who are considering Sisterlocks, if you don't feel comfortable with the first Consultant you meet, schedule another Consultation with a different Consultant.  I also know that not all Consultants give free consultations but if you are serious about Sisterlocks, it is well worth your time, your energy and your money to find someone you trust and who will be with you throughout your Sisterlocks journey.  Many blessings to all during this holiday season.  Be safe and enjoy the time spent with your families.

New Year Resolutions are always about getting healthy.  Well don't forget to include getting your hair healthy as well.  If you are considering making some life style changes and natural hair is on your mind....consider Sisterlocks.  I just recently celebrated my 7th year with Sisterlocks and I have never looked back.  I don't worry about my hair in the gym either.  Get healthy in the New Year and work it out with Sisterlocks!!!!!! You won't regret it and this is definitiely a New Year Resolution that you won't break.   Many blessings.

7 Years and Counting

Posted on 10 December, 2013 at 12:01 Comments comments (20)
Last Friday, December 6, 2013 I celebrated 7 years of Sisterlocks and being natural.  Time sure flies when you are having fun.  I look back at where I had been and where I am going.  My journey has been such an amazing journey.  Now as a Certified Sisterlocks Consultant, I share this gift with others.  I want to give thanks and praise to Jehovah God first and foremost for allowing Dr. C. to share her gift with the world.  I also give thanks and praise to all of my clients.  I have met some amazing women throughout my journey and without Sisterlocks, their friendship would not exist.  As this year marked the 20th Anniversary for Sisterlocks, I smile and look forward to the next 20 years.  It only gets better from here.  Tell me about your journey and for those who are dreaming about Sisterlocks, Joy Page once said, " Dream and give yourself permission to envision a You that you choose to be. 

Keeping up with the pace

I have been asked time and time again, how do I keep up with this schedule of mines????  I work full time and then come home and do Sisterlocks.  My Sisterlocks business is truly a part-time job but it's my baby.  I don't consider it work.  I love it and I truly enjoy it.  I have found my passion in life.  I was given this wonderful gift and it is truly an honor and pleasure to share this gift with others.
 
Sincerely,
 
Keeping up and loving it!

September 2013

Posted on 30 September, 2013 at 15:29 Comments comments (10)
I just wanted to reflect on the month of September for S2S.  Things are definitely going in the right direction.  Four new beautiful clients this month.  Thank you all for putting your hair in our hands.  It's been crazy.  Milestone for S2S...blessed with ability to add 9 new appointment times to our calendar for the month of October.  As we expand, we will continue to add more appointments.
 
Sisterlocks is such a blessing in so many ways.  We have been able to form long lasting friendships with so many unique individuals.  We love our clients.  Each and everyone brings their own uniqueness to S2S.  We have laughed, we have cried, we have explored, we have discovered, we have apologized, we have hugged....we have realized the beauty within.
 
Thank you again.

The Price For Sisterlocks Is Too Much!!!

Posted on 23 September, 2013 at 16:16 Comments comments (21)
I strongly disagree.  I have heard this statement many times and I am sure that I will continue to hear it.  I look at Sisterlocks as an investment.  Sisterlocks is something that I wanted.  Therefore, I saved up for it.  It didn't matter how much it cost because I WANTED IT.  People are looking at the cost of Sisterlocks with tunnel vision; only seeing the cost of the inital install.  But once you take those blinders off and look at the big picture, 9 times out of 10, Sisterlocks is less expensive and less time consuming than whatever you are currently doing with your natural hair.
 
Take it from a person who was in the salon every other week and getting a touch up every six weeks and getting scalp treatments inbetween my touch ups, don't forget my color and tips, not mention the amount of product I had accumulated over the course of a year.  But the reason why I considered Sisterlocks has not even been stated....time.  I spent countless hours in the salon every other Saturday.  My schedule just could not tolerate that anymore.
 
Yes I spent 20 hours getting my Sisterlocks installed but I now only spend 3 hours every six weeks on my Sisterlocks.  This is truly priceless.  Forget about the money, my time is valuable and Sisterlocks allows me to spend more time doing whatever it is I want to do and less time worrying about my hair.
 
With all the weaves, braids, twist, wigs, leave-in conditioners......nothing compares to Sisterlocks.
