Lock Care, Styles, Color & Maintenance 
Starter Locks
NEW* LOK KAPPS by Shanti
Locking natural hair is a process ("A Journey").  When left alone - no combing or brushing - the coiled strands of the hair will grow into coiled formations that matt. The process takes time and patience - average 3-6 months.  Once "Your Lock Journey" begins, you will need to cultivate or train and guide new growth.  Well-groomed locks require regular maintenance and should be groomed every 4-6 weeks.  MWB provides specialized hair care therapy, a variety of lock style choices and grooming services for your lovely locks.  See description below. 
Created and designed by Shanti, the LOK KAPP is a fitted cap. The hair on the KAPP is either synthetic or human. Each KAPP is individually styled, cut, and colored by hand. LOK KAPPs come in various colors, lengths, and styles. They are customized to your individualized specifications.
