A Good Clarifier Shampoo will Get Rid of Residue on Sisterlocks

I'm glad to say that that the residue and film left by the got2b Guardian Angel Heat Protect N' Flatten was successful removed by my clarifier shampoo. To read more about what I'm referring to click here. I'm extremely relieved that it wasn't an issue to remove the residue from my locks. I guess the ingredient in that product can be easily washed away. I don't know if I can still recommend this product to lock wearer.  Below are the comparisons of the issues I had.

My sisterlocks are nice and clean which makes me a happy camper. Right now they are in much need of some moisturizer, because they are a little harsh to touch, but I will fix that with my moisturize spray in the morning. I could not go to bed with my sisterlocks looking like that UGH. I usually wait and review my blog post for days for correction etc. but I just had to share this, so excuse me as I no doubt have errors on this post.

  1. Your blog has inspired me. Thank you for sharing! I loved the two years 9 months posting as well. I think that I have a similar natural curl pattern as you. I am always looking for others who have similar curl patterns because many women see beautiful hair, but they have no idea that if you don't start with the same curl pattern, then you may not achieve the same finished look. I plan to go down the SisterLock journey with the mindset that my locks will look a little frizzy as they mature. If they do not frizz, then I will be soooo happy. I will have to search your blog for further questions like: 1) does the Sisterlock tool hurt? ( I am tenderheaded)
    2)Since I plan to keep my relaxed ends, I assume it will look like invisible braids. I have about 2 to 3 inches of new growth. I assume that I will roller set the ends with the sisterlocks at the roots.
    Any advice? If there are keywords to search for in your blog for these answers, then please let me know as well. Thank you in advance!

  2. Thanks for your responds. It keeps me going when I read these types of comments.

    >>> I plan to go down the SisterLock journey with the mindset that my locks will look a little frizzy as they mature. If they do not frizz, then I will be soooo happy.

    Most likely it will be frizzy in the very beginning. As time goes by, it will be less frizzy because your stray curls will start to natural wrap around its individual locks. Just keep looking at blog for daily inspiration to help your journey go smoothly

    >>> I will have to search your blog for further questions like: 1) does the Sisterlock tool hurt? ( I am tenderheaded)

    The sisterlocks tool doesn't hurt; the people who use it are usually the one responsible for the pain. If your sisterlocks retighten does happen to hurt, you need to tell your consultant right away. Also let them know you are tender headed, because wetting your hair or them spraying water on your hair should help with whatever pain you will normally experience as a tender headed person.


    >>> 2)Since I plan to keep my relaxed ends, I assume it will look like invisible braids.

    Your perm ends will not look like braids at all. Your consultant will leave your perm hair out of the interlocking pattern of sisterlocks. Most women who decided to keep their perm end tend to curl them or do braid out so they blend in better.

    >> I have about 2 to 3 inches of new growth. I assume that I will roller set the ends with the sisterlocks at the roots.

    You can roller set them any way you want. You can try rolling your perm end and have a curl or roll them all and have bouncy curl that will blend in nicely.

    These are really good question that have not been answered by me. You can try searching my blog for other questions you may have in the future with great result (any keywords will work). I pretty much cover a lot of items or issues on my blog, and I have my post very well organize as well. If you can't find answer to your question don't hesitate to ask, because I will always respond. Good luck and remember you will need plenty of patience for this journey, but it all worth it in the end.

  3. What clarifier did you use?

  4. The Shampoo I used was Aura Rejuvenating Shampoo, Rosemary Mint by Naturelle. Suave makes a clarifier shampoo as well. I never use it, but I will when this bottle is done.

  5. I'm using the Suave clarifier shampoo right now and I haven't got the results you got with the Aura. I'm going to try it next to see if it works for me. By the way, I hardly use any products on my hair, rinse it out well when shampooing, and cover my hair at night and still get this residue.
    I guess it will have to get dye or something.

  6. Oh wow thanks for sharing. Then I stick with this shampoo. As you can see, my shampoo clear off my residue without coloring over it.

  7. Hi there. This is just the post I needed as my locks have what seems to be a build up/ residue. Been using the sisterlocks starter shampoo mixed with a little bit of Dr. Bronners lavender soap. Still left with residue. I have done an ACV/baking soda mix and no luck. I recently used the carols daughter rosemary mint shampoo. It helped a little but not all gone. Could it be my shampoo method or choice of shampoo? I try not to agitate the locks to much while washing plus I work out so lots of sweat. My locks are 13 months old. Thanks

  8. I wouldn't recommend mixing shampoo at all since the formula that original made that shampoo may not mix well together.

    I was about to do ACV/Baking Soda wash but found my clarifying shampoo did a good enough job. The shampoo I use was Aura Rejuvenating Shampoo, Rosemary Mint by Naturelle. I wash my hair really good with it and all the residue came out. Maybe the reside that cause the issue that I had above was more easily washed out, then the residue you have on your locks.

    I suggest maybe trying out my shampoo, and if that doesn't work, just soak your hair in ACV for a while. With all the stuff you doing and will be doing to your hair, it will no doubt cause dry hair. So just try to increase your routine of moisture control and your locks should go back to normal.

  11. Hi Kreyola,

    I am in my 18th week of my journey. I have completely natural hair and I am an organic, natural remedy kind of gal. I discovered the benefits of pepperment oil today. I had mad dandruff from the first day I wash my hair with the sisterlock shampoo and it seemed so weird since I'm using no hair products or I guess maybe that could be why I am getting the borage of flakes. My locks were retightened today and I put about ten drops of pure peppermint oil in warm water with a cotton swab and completely covered every inch of my scalp with the solution. Wow, invigorating. Then I added more water to the mixture and spritzed my hair. The luster is amazing. I will do this treatment on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. I googled peppermint oil and it has crazy mad good benefits for the hair. Ph balancing, bonds the follicle to the hair shaft, clarifies the hair and promotes hair by promoting blood circulation and stimulating the scalp. Remember a few drops go along way and it is not oily at all. Peppermint is used in those expensive hair regrowth products. Thanks for your blog and many blessings!!! Oh your hair is gorgeous and you're beautiful sister.
