I went to a sisterlock consultation last week and was quoted $850. I was willing to spend $500 bc i plan to hv locs forever once i get them and figured I've spent more than that over the years on my hair getting braids, buying products and whatnot and will be saving more in the long run with locs once i get them. But even that's too much not to mention $850, then there's the $70 retightning fee every 4 weeks fee. The loctician said I've very dense hair and it would take hours to finish, which's why they're expensive. She said she typically charges $1000 or higher
. I'm now considering interlocking method for my starter locks, not just because they're cheaper, lol, but bc it seems you can avoid the chicken head look with this method and bc it gives you the loc'd look quicker. I hope this would be a good method for my 4c hair. I've been doing a process of elimination in choosing the right starter for myself and have now narrowed it down to interlocks, tho I'm a anxious about how they will turn out. I'm going to get someone to do them then be doing the retightning myself.
These youtubers started theirs with interlocks.
My length should be about hers but she's 4b.
She also started hers with interlocks and they're coming along well.
