    Default HELP 3 weeks in and I've already lost a SL!!

    I washed my hair on Wednesday with the SL starter shampoo and today one came out. How do I stop this before it becomes a trend?

    Are you braiding? banding? I hated it but you absolutely must with starter Sisterlocks. I did not use the shampoo..but the simple force of the water will make your lock slip-the shampoo can't stop that. There's just less slip than with a detangling shampoo.

    Also, don't freak out. it will stop. Watch month 3 they will start doing something totally different. In the meantime, braid, then secure by banding to counter slippage/bunching.
