How long does my hair have to be to start dreds?
We recommend at least
two inches of growth, may vary depending on your hair texture.
If I have a relaxer/ texturizer can I get comb/coiled twist?
no, because the natural (unrelaxed) coils in the hair enable the hair to twist. Because relaxers loosen the natural
coil, it prevents the hairs' ability to twist. However, the new growth can be twisted.
What's the difference between dreds & comb/coiled twists?
