I am often asked whether it necessary for clients to cut off their relaxed hair in order to have Sisterlocks(TM) installed.
The answer is that it depends on client preference. As long as there is 1 1/2 inches of virgin hair then Sisterlocks(TM can be installed.
Here is Gardenia, she had been growing out the relaxer for 6 months prior to her installation.
There is still quite a bit of relaxer in her hair.
She had a damaged hair line with hair loss visible at her temples.
Gardenia can roll her hair on rollers or rods (with out any bristles or teeth) so that the different textures are less visible. Over time she may decide whether she wants to cut these ends off or not.
I will keep you updated on Gardenias progress 4 weeks post installation.
See you next time
