How funny is that I recently had two transfer clients with mature Sisterlocks come to me with breakage issues. So we talked about their hair regime and come to find out that both of their previous Consultants told them no oils and conditioners can be put into your hair. Well this is partly true.....when you have new Sisterlocks!!!! When your Sisterlocks are mature and especially if you are coloring your locks, you are going to need to get some moisture and oil into those locks. Sisterlocks has two wonderful products just for this called Moisture Treatment and Reconstructor that works wonderfully for our locks. Our hair produces its own natural oils but when your locks are long...the natural oils ability to travel the entire length of the lock becomes less and less as your hair grows. So in short, new Sisterlocks; no product except Starter Shampoo. Mature Sisterlocks; you will need product to help maintain your locks. Hope this helps.
