Video Tutorials in more detail.
1. Part one: The Sista System This is a one hour video, explaining the fundamentals of maintenance. The Sista Sytem's creators take you through every element of the dreading process, including the coveted hand action that they use to weave the lokks without breakage or loss of length and without the use of wax or other nasty chemicals. This first tutorial was created with beginners in mind. It shows every complex action, from every angle, and it is encouraged that you stop and start the video at your own leisure and pace. Some time and patience is important here, as this is a complex set of actions that you must perform simultaneously. It is helpful if you have a willing friend or participant to practise on. Upon completion of this first tutorial, you will be proficient at the method, however your speeds will need to improve so practice is the answer,
2. Part Two: Products and how they work This tutorial goes through all the products supplied by LokkStokk & Apparel, used extensively in the SistaSystem. This tutorial will take you through exactly how and why each product works. LokkStokk is an ethical business, based in Victoria, Australia. It is vegan and uses all recycled packaging in its natural process. Once you have completed your course, LSA will give you access to our wholesale agreement, which gives you the opportunity to sell Lokkstokk products in your own store. This concept alone is a completely viable way to make a living.
We include in Course two package only : 1 x LokkUp 250ml 1 x Bloke Block 1 x Dread Bomb 1 x Xfoliate 1 x pre Dread 1 x post Dread
3. Part Three - Problem Solving and Troubleshooting:
How do I take out wax? How do I finish off ends? How do I consult on scalp conditions such as dandruff? How do I bulk out thin dreads? How do I attach extensions? These are but a select few of the very frequent asked questions and issues you will run into, as a practising lokktician. This tutorial will elaborate on the skills already learned in part 1, and it will also allow you to gain necessary information on troubleshooting and how to cope with the day to day problems that you may face. It will deepen your understanding of the regular issues you will encounter as well as furthering your mastery of the system itself.
4 .Part Four - Full Dreads: If you've ever seen Weirdsista dreads, or seen a sista at work, you may have noticed a very specific pattern to the dreads themselves. This is no accident, and is completely by design. The distinct "flower of life" pattern is one of our greatest accomplishments, in which we use a unique geometry and a trained eye for sizing to create the smallest size, all the way to the thickest dreads you could ever want. Understanding why we implement this method, why someone might benefit from it and exactly how we execute it with precision, will take any dreadlocks you create to the worlds stage and you along with it, as a professional. This process is integral if you intend to make lokks from scratch, and will allow you to create perfect lokks every time, to the exact dimensions specified by your client. It also removes the risk of problems occurring later on, in the dreads life.
We hope this has explained all you need to know about the courses, but if you have any further questions or enquiries, we are always happy to help out. feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org All students completing course two, will be invited to take part in our lead process, which will see you and your business advertised in all sista system web presence and social media.
