Hairloss is a sensitive issue and it can be quite a traumatic experience for sufferers, especially if large areas of hair (locs) are missing amidst areas where there is quite a bit of coverage. Aside from using the existing hair to try to hide patches - which can often be impossible if the hair loss is at the crown or on your edges - loc wearers have limited styling options other than wearing hats and scarves/headwraps. Or so we used to think...
Since I began my own journey into the world of hairloss I have discovered a number of female entrepreneurs who are providing this much needed service to locked sisters in the US and UK. (I've even heard of one in Barbados but have yet to track her down...)
On this note - I'd like to introduce Precious Stallworth, proprietor of Naptapestry Hair Studio.
Naptapestry specializes in Sisterlocks, Brotherlocks, Traditional locs, loc maintenance, loc styling, hair care, and Loc repair. Precious' trademarked line of prosthetic loc units are known as Creation Integration™ Locs : "a prosthetic loc integration unit designed to create maximum coverage for those with density challenges".
The Creation Integration™ unit is custom designed to meet the individual's need (specific hair loss/ thinning pattern, head size and shape, hair color, and length)". During your consultation they will discuss your individual needs and work with you to create a plan to maximize both the overall look of your hair and its growth potential."
