We will be adding more FAQ over time and if you have a question that is not here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org thank you
Can I purchase the tutorial and then teach someone else? No, you have purchased this tutorial to learn the process, to maintain your own dreads or start a small business, therefore you are not able to teach or share the information. Please refer to the confidentiality contract you signed . Here
How long will it take me before I get quicker at the process? This depends on how many hours you put into your practice, however you will get there and we find most lokkticians are starting to take clients within the first three months.

Can I pay off the course over time and can i start the training before I have finsihed paying for the course. Yes we have a payment plan you can download Here with a minimum payment of $50/week;/
Do I need to purchase LokkStokk if i'm running a business and saying i'm using the SistaSystem? Yes you will need to have all stock on hand should you wish to use the branding SistaSystem and appear on our pages as stockists and trained lokkticians, If you do not use the product we will assume you are not using the sistasystem and you will not appear on our pages or be advertised on our social media.
What is the difference between the SistaSystem and the Crochet method as they both use a hook? They do both use the same tool, however the process is vastly different. The difference in the two processes is many, with the most obvious being the SistaSystem has no loss of length, no hair breakage and is largely pain free. Where as the crochet method is very painful, always creates breakage at the root and damages the lokk causing weak spots and broken lokks. The SistaSystem is a gentle process that weaves and binds the hair into a tight cylindrical rope which over the next few months, naturally, expands to the size of the ,base-work created, where as the crochet method is reliant on harsh backcombing and teasing to create a instant size, which will eventually develop into a bulbous end.
Im having trouble dreading with tape on. This is something we hear all th e time, and often lokkticians will take off the tape to try to pursue the process quicker, however, you will be doing yourself a very big disfavour doing this, as you will damage your digits and then have to relearn the process, thus slowing down your ability to lokk the hair quicker.
