Some of you may recall that when I first started losing my hair I contacted a lovely lady (Gerrylocs) in the US who was both understanding and sensitive to my situation. She wasn't able to help me in the end due to the extend of my hair loss but I will never forget how gently and sensitively she handled me. I hoped that I would be like that with my own clients - she really left a mark on me! (Check out her work - isn't she awesome?)
A fellow UK blogger has been dealing with her own hair issue (thinning) and has published a few posts on suitable hair pieces for (Sister)locked women. Her latest post talks about a loc bridge - you gotta click on the link to really see what she's on about.
I like the concept... I've been thinking (for what seems like forever) about how to make a full cap wig of locs. I was gonna rope in a locked colleague, do several (bazillion) afro-kinky twists and attach them to a weave cap but I hadn't quite figured out how (to attach them) maybe I can incorporate this yarn string idea.
Since January I've made 3 or 4 'straight haired' wigs, so I'm pretty good at it but the loc wig needs a lot of thought because it has just got to be 'right' cos I don't wanna be looking like this:
