Many states have imposed orders to close non-essential businesses. This includes beauty salons and barber shops. As an independent business owner, you should follow the rules imposed by your state. If you're exempt and choose to remain in business, please follow health and safety guidelines to remain healthy and not contract or spread the disease. This is a personal decision and Sisterlocks does not advise, either way. Whatever you do, operate in your comfort level and be safe.
For Clients who may be forced to miss appointments, don't despair. Sisterlocks are resilient and a few weeks beyond your normally scheduled appointment, will usually be OK. For various reasons, Military deployment, illness or times of financial distress, we've had Clients who have reported going several months without a re-tightening. This would be extreme and regularly scheduled appointments are recommended to maintain the integrity of your Sisterlocks.
With that said, there's nothing regular or normal about the times we're facing! I've never faced a "safe at home" order or been advised to keep a six foot distance from other people. Going to the supermarket feels like something out of a Sci-fi movie! I appreciate the precautions taken but it's foreign to me on so many levels.
Precautions are necessary. You must also take precautions to maintain your locks between retightening appoints:
- Keep your hair clean, conditioned and SEPARATED. Normally, we advise separating locks after a shampoo or anytime you fully immerse your hair with water. As the hair grows out and you miss a retightening, separate your hair a few times a week.
- Opt for styles that don't stress the hair at the roots. Freestyle, roller sets or loose braid outs will provide a long lasting style that will last from shampoo to shampoo. Pinning it up in a bun may protect your hair and keep it out of the way.
Family, don't forget how fabulous and resilient you are during these tumultuous times. And remember, your Sisterlocks are just as fabulous and resilient as you!
