Releasing Your Locs

There seems to be a number of sisters and maybe some brothers out there who are interested in having their Locs combed out.  I posted on my facebook page a request for anyone who does this service or knows of others who do, to let me know.  So far, only one salon owner has responded, Nyota Starr of ‘Hair Today Hair Tomorrow’.  The only salon that has responded is located in Oakland, CA.  I will grow this list as I hear of others who offer this service.  Here is the info.

In the meantime, if you decide to comb out your own Locs keep these tips in mind:

  • Take your time this is not a process can be rushed
  • Use a fine tooth comb or needle for the combing out process
  • Use plenty of conditioner to keep the hair moist through out the process
  • Realize that it can take day or weeks to complete the process

    hi i am trying to transition from a relaxer to a natural. would you recommend 2 strand twist. also i had highlights which somewhat thinned the top of my hair. she i still get twist but make stylist don’t go to thin


    • Dee,
      Two strand twist is an option for transitioning. Though I find that most women do not like the look of Two Strand Twist on permed hair. It has no body or fullness. I would need to see your hair to say for certain. If you don’t live in the area, you can email a photo to me at
