I've have spent four years in a relationship with Sisterlocks. I have not regretted one day. Since my sister Maryee came home with her new locs, resulting in my mouth flying open in awe, I was instantly "moved" to join the Sisterlock revolution. I abandoned the traditional approach I had utilized. I had worn locks that I cultivated and maintained myself, but I have to say that the Sisterlock method changed my entire perspective on locking, dreadlocks, and natural hair.
I am grateful that Dr. Cornwell created a business and a lifestyle "adjuster" that both transformed/(s) lives and affected/(s) so much positive change for the greater good.
Dr. Cornwell states, " You will see that Sisterlocks is much more than a hair care system. It's more like a movement, and it is really powerful! We welcome everyone who has positive energy to share, to join in this movement! ENJOY!"
As a former locked head, it was not the fact that Sisterlocks was just any other way to lock your hair, it was the entire notion of creating a method where uniformity and integrity were placed in the forefront by way of how one approached the process of cultivating/sowing the locks, relationship and information was mandated up front, and thoughtfulness, respect for decision-making, accountability, and personal responsibility were not afterthoughts.
My consultant wanted to be clear that I understood what I was getting into, and that the process I would be going through was established on sound business principles and a sound business philosophy. She wanted me to be sure that I was ready to make a commitment both financially and aesthetically, a long term commitment. I am sure she dreaded(s) seeing a first time client, but she courageously braved(s) the storm of questions about "short-cuts", "whys nots", and "how comes" with dignity and grace.
Did I want it to be easier, quicker, more economical/inexpensive? Sure. But because I ultimately submitted to the procedure, I am all the better for it. I humbled myself and submitted. I saved the money necessary to go through the process. I waited the period of time I was asked to so as to be on the other side both grateful and having tremendous respect for my consultant and the Sisterlock method and family. So after four years, I remain ever so happy I made this choice. I have no regrets.
Understanding and realizing there are other approaches and methods men and women are choosing everyday to manage their hair, I am in no way suggesting that other methods have no merit. I am simply celebrating my four year anniversary by saying "thank you" little seedling for growing into the grand fruit producer that you are.
I love my Sisterlocks.
