So, what has it been like with Sisterlocks?
Sisterlocks are expensive. The installation can be expensive (but no different than what you would pay for braid installation, hair tracks and some wigs)... Even more, you should get them retightened every five to six weeks. If not, you may risk damaging your hair and or your retightening price may increase). In contrast, my hair does better when I have help caring for it. It has always done better when stylists are involved.
It reminds me of when I first went natural... The fact is, Mississippi tends to be behind on trends so I have gotten a lot of questions asking "what are they", "if I plan to keep them", etc. Why the hell will I pay all of this money and sit in a chair for nearly 20 hours to get them removed?! Even more irritating, a lot of women with locs don't like them. They're too small and require too much upkeep for them. The reality is that these are more versatile (you can curl or flat iron them).
