Just finished my consult! The price is 140. I had to pay 20 today for the deposit which will be taken off of the 140. She does use gel but not a lot; I think she uses Joi gel. She assessed my hair and std that my hair was good to go for locs. I told her I wanted them small and at least 200 (I was going to do 250, but that's just too much for me) and she std no problem. She std she considers the size of the head and the density of the hair. The interesting thing is, I will go to her every 2 wks until my hair buds and then every 3wks and then once the locs are formed it will be every 6wks. Every 2wks she will do a gentle spray wash and retwist. She retwist with a homemade oil that she sells. She offers 3 different oils. As far as her disposition, she seems really sweet and authentic. I also like that my scalp will be getting cleaned every 2 wks and retwisted. As far as cons, the price is a little high. I was thinking it would only be 100. Another con was that she was almost 30 mins late.
