Sista System Online Tutorial Courses

Hello and thank you for taking an interest in our online tutorials.

With the online tutorial package, you can  purchase the full tutorial package, which is designed as a training course for those interested in opening their own dreadlock salon. 

Should you choose this full tutorial package, you will also be invited to enrol in a module course,  which takes you through the many aspects of dreads scalp care, products, trouble shooting as well as how to open and start a small business. You will also be granted access to the fantastic wholesale agreement offered by our sister company, LokkStokk & Apparel, which is also a very good money earner. 


Once enrolled  You will receive:

The Lokktician’s starter kit contains:

1 x Hairdressing scissors

1 x Hairdressing thinning scissors

1 x Tailcomb

1 x Synthetic hair

1 x Protective tape

2 x Thumb protector

2 x weaver hooks

This Lokktician’s starter kit package is sent to you within a week so you have all the equipment you need to begin practise, and to make dreads. 

1. the Sista system Part one:

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, or you can always book in with the Sista System for a more hands on experience.  These sessions can be booked with any Sista System representative, so don't hesitate to enquire. 

Upon completion of this first tutorial, you will be proficient at the method to serve the purposes of home and casual maintenance. This will not give you the extra training necessary to take on clients of your own, but you will be able to take your dread matters (or those of your friends or significant others) into your own hands. Bear in mind, maintaining your own dreads can be difficult but with time and practise you will have all the skills you need. The tutorial is entirely online, and you are able to access it as many times as you need, to get you on your way (individual use only). 

2. 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. This is an admittedly vast field and there is a lot to learn in this area, but is invaluable when it comes to answering frequent questions like  "why don’t you use wax?". The product serves as the second aspect to The Sista Systems two parts and it is imperative to understand in order to treat conditions more effectively, as well as  making sure your clients are well informed and looked after.

LokkStokk is an ethical business, based in Victoria, Australia. It is a vegan collective that uses all recycled packaging in its natural process. Ownership of the complete tutorial package 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.

 If you purchase the complete tutorial package, we include 5 of each Product to kick start your business.

5 x LokkUp 250ml

5 x Bloke Block

5 x Dread Bomb

5 x Xfoliate

5 x pre Dread 

5 x post Dread 


3. 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 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. You will also gain further access to information manuals once you are enrolled in the course. These manuals can be downloaded and used as a reference tool, at your discretion.

We include a de waxing serum

steel tooth comb

4. Full Dreads:

The final stop on this journey is certainly a concept in of itself, and this tutorial will serve as your informational lifeline when attempting to master the task of creating full dreads, from scratch. 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 finest matchstick 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. 

Because of the high concept nature of this particular system, we suggest you do onsite training with us at weirdsistas, this course includes a four hour onsite training module with a lokktician, with further onsite hands on training available for an extra cost.  . This will allow you to shadow a trained lokktician, to really see in motion how the process works and practice your own skills at the same time. These onsite sessions must be booked in advance with any Sista System representative.

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

All students, upon successful completion of the full course, 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.
