Sisterlocks are a style of dreadlocks pioneered by JoAnne Cornwell in San Diego, California in 1993. These very thin locks are styled with a tool similar to a crochet hook. As your roots grow out, you can return to your sisterlocks stylist to have them retwisted. Taking proper care of your body can help nourish your hair and promote growth.
Things You'll Need
Wash your hair once a week with a stimulating shampoo designed to promote hair growth. Mint shampoos like peppermint castile soap provide a tingling feeling as they stimulate the scalp. Another option is to add a few drops of peppermint oil to a bottle of your favorite shampoo.
Massage your scalp regularly with coconut oil or shea butter. Not only does the oil help moisturize dry hair, massaging can help stimulate the scalp.
Eat a diet rich in vitamins that promote hair growth, or take a hair-growth supplement.. According to Dr. George Obiyoka at the Vitamins-Nutrition website, these vitamins include biotin, B-6, folic acid, inositol, sulfur, silica, magnesium and zinc.
Avoid stress, alcohol and cigarette smoking, which can inhibit hair growth.
Have your Sisterlocks maintained by a licensed stylist every six weeks.
