- How long did it take to put them in? and
- How much did they cost?
I tell them that with my 2 inches of new growth, it took two 7-hour days, but I quickly tell them that retightenings take only two to four hours.

When I talk about cost, I emphasize that the initial package price includes two months worth of services offered in a package of three visits! The three visits should include:
- A Consultation where your Consultant will gather information from you about your hair care history; Share information with you about the care and maintenance of Sisterlocks. During this visit, she will put a number of Sample Locs in your hair, using different locking patterns, which she will monitor between the time of your consultation and your locking session.
- The initial Locking Session, where your Consultant will do the entire Sisterlocks procedure. Some consultants schedule two shorter sessions for this depending upon the length of your hair. You will also be given your sisterlocks care kit at this visit.
- Your first "Follow-up Session" which is your first check-in and minor re-tightening after 2-3 shampoos or about 3-4 weeks. (Remember, all this should be included in your Package Price!)
Everyones locs are unique!
Sisterlocks certification is your assurance that an individual has not only been properly trained in the techniques, but has gone on to demonstrate their proficiency in several important areas like, proper lock sizing, adequate consultations, long-term maintenance, and more.
Make sure that your loctician can be found on the sisterlocks website in the certified consultant section or in the registered trainee section.
Finally, if you live in the Atlanta area anywhere near Tucker, I highly recommend my loctician, Cia, of Kinky Awakenings!
