Step 1: Call Microlocs at 901.832-5035 to schedule your consultation. During this session you and your Consultant will discuss your personal hair care history, your styling preferences and your lifestyle in order to determine if Sisterlocks is right for you. You will also have "TEST LOCKS" put in your hair to see if they will hold, check sizes, amount of scalp showing, settling-in time, etc. This consultation is essential for both you and your Consultant to ensure you get your Sisterlocks done in the most suitable way.
Step 2: This step involves the installation of your Sisterlocks (TM). Bring a good book because the locking process can take from 10-20 hours or even longer in some cases. Your consultant may split this into two sessions depending on the amount of hair and scalp size. The average Sisterlocks customer will leave this session with an average of 400 locks and a whole new attitude! Your Consultant will provide you with a "Starter Kit" that includes the proper shampoo for starting your locks, tiny rubber bands and "tip sheets" on grooming and shampooing as your locks settle in. Be sure to schedule your follow-up visit before you leave. Good maintenance is the key to gorgeous Sisterlocks over time.

Step 3: You will need to schedule your follow-up visit after at least two shampooings, which is usually within one month from the time you first get your locks put in. Your Consultant will monitor the integrity of your locks, tighten them up and give you an idea of how long the settling-in process is likely to take. You can also begin discussing styling tips for the 'total look' that's right for you! We recommend that you schedule your first few re-tightening visits at 4-6 week intervals. This way the progress of your locks can be monitored. As your locks mature, your Consultant will be able to determine how often you will need to come in for retightenings on a regular basis. The average time between visits is 4-8 weeks, depending on the hair type and rate of growth.
