Nunatural Sisterlock Journey

I finally was able to view one of my clients YouTube Sisterlock Journey Vid's
and I absolutely love the videos. These videos are great and are helpful
to someone who is looking at getting Sisterlocks or already locked.
She just had her 4th retightening and I'm sure she will be uploading a
video to show her progress. She has 577 locks and we actually broke a
record by finishing under 4hrs! :-)

Newly Sisterlocked

Ms. E began her Sisterlock journey this past weekend. She is very excited and she loves her new locks. Ms. E requested large Sisterlocks all over to shorten her Retightening sessions even though she was surprised that she still has plenty of locks. She is looking forward to the different stages that her locks will go through. Enjoy your Sisterlocks Ms. E!

Can I get Sisterlocks with Alopecia?

I have found that Sisterlocks does help with Alopecia. Many AA women who have experienced hair damage and loss from microbraid extensions, relaxers, etc. find that their hair recovers when they stop braiding or relaxing and start locking their hair. Now there are some that start experiencing alopecia when they have locks but this can be due to too tight re-tightenings or styles that pull the locks too much. Also the alopecia could be a internal problem ie thyroid disease, stress.

I have been told that Castor Oil works great with helping the process of hair growth. This product can be purchased at any Beauty Supply Store. I had a client swear by Wild Hair Grow Oil which can be bought at a Beauty Supply Store. Also a product called Emu oil helps with hair growth too. Now these products were used before Sisterlocks were installed. It is not recommended to use these products with a new installation because products can cause slippage. If client wants to use a product to help with the alopecia make sure client only uses it on the affected spot.

I welcome any comments or suggestion on Alopecia!
