Hey Gang!

This video is #3 of the 3 part series on shampooing and conditioning long locks, dreadlocks and natural hair.  If you’re doing any type of clarifying shampoo first, you will be thoroughly washing away all of your natural oils.  Well, those oils will need to be replaced.  Now the natural oil that your scalp produces (sebum) will work to help condition the hair closest to the scalp, but if you have any length to your locks or if your locks are color-treated, the rest of you locks will become very dry over time.  Since I and my clients have always “dry conditioned” our locks and use lock-friendly products, dryness is not really an issue.  Healthy locks are clean, supple and have a naturally soft sheen when well moisturized. 

As always, if you’re currently using products that you absolutely love and are working for you, then by all means continue to use them.  But if dryness continues to be an issue for you, then try a few of the Soul Purpose products along with the Healthylocks Conditioning Mist.  I highly recommend them.  Enjoy the video!

Have A Great Hair Day!

Hey Gang,

Let me introduce you to “Lisa”.  Lisa has been a client of mine for the past 7 months.  I first met Lisa at one of my natural hair seminars that she attended with her aunt.  Although her aunt immediately became one of my loyal and appreciated clients, Lisa however, waited to begin her lock journey for 2 more years!  So I knew she was ready when she came to me for her Sisterlocks.  Lisa’s hair texture was very soft, wavy, and dense, and it produced a head full of endless beautiful natural coils.  It was 3-4 inches on top and almost 3 inches on the sides and back. 

Lisa is one of those “perfect clients”.  She was very dilligent with her hair care in between retightening sessions.  We had one set back though.  During a shampoo, she accidentally grabbed a moisturing shampoo and  most of her locks became extremely loose and many unraveled completely.  What normally would’ve taken me 3 hours to complete her grooming, took me almost 6 hours! 

Because of the softness and looser curl pattern of Lisa’s natural texture, she was on a “shorter” re-tightening schedule until her locks settled.  She’s currently on a 4 week schedule and the goal is 6 weeks.

Although 7 months has passed, Lisa’s hair has not begun to lock yet.  They are more settled though, and make for a great transitional style while waiting for her hair to lock.  I don’t encourage any additional styling or manipulation.  This is hair that you can just tousle and go!  Lisa absolutely loves her Sisterlocks and cares for them meticulously in between her visits with me…and it shows!

This was a spur of the minute video.  Lisa is one of those clients that I thought would never be open to sharing on video.  I asked, and to my surprise, she said, yes!  The lighting wasn’t all that great and the video has an orange hue, but the the content is amazing!  I’m forever grateful to Lisa for allowing me to document this part of her Sisterlocks journey and sharing with all of you!  Enjoy!  Thanks Lisa!
