I strongly disagree. I have heard this statement many times and I am sure that I will continue to hear it. I look at Sisterlocks as an investment. Sisterlocks is something that I wanted. Therefore, I saved up for it. It didn't matter how much it cost because I WANTED IT. People are looking at the cost of Sisterlocks with tunnel vision; only seeing the cost of the inital install. But once you take those blinders off and look at the big picture, 9 times out of 10, Sisterlocks is less expensive and less time consuming than whatever you are currently doing with your natural hair.
Take it from a person who was in the salon every other week and getting a touch up every six weeks and getting scalp treatments inbetween my touch ups, don't forget my color and tips, not mention the amount of product I had accumulated over the course of a year. But the reason why I considered Sisterlocks has not even been stated....time. I spent countless hours in the salon every other Saturday. My schedule just could not tolerate that anymore.
Yes I spent 20 hours getting my Sisterlocks installed but I now only spend 3 hours every six weeks on my Sisterlocks. This is truly priceless. Forget about the money, my time is valuable and Sisterlocks allows me to spend more time doing whatever it is I want to do and less time worrying about my hair.
With all the weaves, braids, twist, wigs, leave-in conditioners......nothing compares to Sisterlocks.
