FAQ

Starter locs

 

What is our locking method?

We invented a unique method for loc maintenance that does not use any hair product. This method has only practiced by our family for over 40 years. Even though there are many methods for maintaining locs, we have discovered that this is not conducive to hair growth. Our method is tried and tested, and is exceptional for locs and the growth of your hair without pulling it.  We don’t use any grease or wax, hook needle, rubber bands, no palm rolling, no twisting, no braiding, no interlocking and no pulling. This is because it doesn’t help your hair to grow.

We offer a hair analysis to examine the condition of your hair and scalp. We use a microscope in order to look at the hair and scalp in detail and are able to offer personal advice on treatments.

 

 

Deep Cleaning Scalp Scrub

 

After the advice, you will need the Deep Cleaning Scalp Scrub (DCS). The scrub is needed if you suffer from hair loss, a flaky or itchy scalp or other hair and scalp disorders. With the scrub we remove blockages, dirt and any kind of scalp build up. This is a great treatment for reactivating your hair follicles to grow stronger, healthier hair.

 

 

DCS Treatment (Deep Cleaning Scalp Treatment)

 

If we advise the treatment you will be treated for a total of 28 days. You will need to return to the salon every 14 days for a treatment. You can purchase the products in the salon prior to your appointment.

 

What can I expect after the DCS treatment?

Eight weeks after the full treatment (after 28 days) we recommend to repeat the treatment in order to stimulate the hair and keep it healthy.  You can book the whole treatment again and let us do it, or you only book a scrub treatment and a hair analysis at the end of the treatment.
