    amazing. never would have thought it could be done. did you lose much hair when combing.

    Thanks Vernise for your comment, and the answer to your question, whether you lose lots of hair is... It depends on how patient you are with the process of removing it, or combing it out. It really just requires patients, because with frustration you can lose a lot of hair.
    I proved it is possible to comb your locks out. My hair is thick, people keep saying that, which is quite interesting. Just loving it.
    What a natural hair journey!

    I am in the process of taking mine out now. What advice (besides patience) do you have to decrease the hair loss? I'm curious if you used any special product or conditioner to help detangle? I want to get it done this weekend as I'm lookin a hot mess! 65 more to go!


    I am with ya! I have about 80 to go and it is a process. I had short hair before but I want to retain length if I can. I am thinking about paying someone to do it (or at least help) but that's proving difficult.

    Did you have to cut any of your ends (due to damage) or incur any split ends? I have taken a handful out and flat ironed it to determine length and see that I will probably have to cut 2 inches or so. What was your experience?

    Any advice is appreciated. Thx.

    Hi Angel, I apologize not getting back to you sooner, I have been busy with children and summer vacation.
    I hope you made it through the unlocking process.
    I only used patiants, and a fine tooth comb. That was my only solution. No regrats either, I've been enjoying my summer with my wonderful natural styling options.
    Wishing you the best with your Natural Hair Journey.
    So what's next for you?

    Thanks for sharing Camille. It can be a trying time and one may lose patients. Be careful not to get desperate and make regratful emotional decisions. Take your time.
    All hair types needs to be cut or trimmed to grow healthy and strong. Just get through this process first then face the length issue when that time comes.
    You can do it!

    Wow, I'm really pleased to see that I'm not the only one crazy enough to try this. Everyone in my family is waiting for me to give up and cut my locks out, but I'm practicing patience.

    I have about 70 percent left to loose, and now that I've seen some pics of finished hair, I'm definitely going to stick with it.

    Thanks for the encouragement!

    Thanks Ania for your comment.
    Stay encouraged because it is possible, but not without a lot of patients.
    I have been enjoying my hair since, but I also think I shall be locking it soon, because I do miss my locks.
    This time I shall take the sisterlock route. Stay tuned, stay encouraged, and you shall make it to the finish line.

    haha, I think i don't have the patience to comb out a hair like that, maybe that is way i'm very lazy for hair styling anyway :P

    Hi P,
    Thanks for your comment, and also your honesty.
    It really does require all the patients you can possibly have.
    You need to be honest with yourself before you get started.

    Hello Beautiful Black Ladies-
    Sisterlocs can also be combed out! Yes, it is true. With patience, determination, perseverance, and a great support system (hairstylist) you can comb out Sisterlocs. We used an all natural conditioner and several "bone" combs and began the long, arduous process. My wonderful, loving, all natural hairstylist spent 8 days combing out my Sisterlocs. They were two years long and he did not want to cut off my beautiful, nappy hair that I had been patiently growing for the past 3-4 years. This has been a great experience and I am thankful for the Sisterloc Journey and now being back to my natural, free flowing journey. Finally, my goal and reason for combing out my locs is to FINALLY learn how to care for natural hair. Peace and blessings to all!
    Have a thankful life.


    Thank you so much for your comments.
    High self esteem is very important, especially going through your natural hair journey.
    So are all the wonderful styling options available to us. There is always a natural hair option that works better for you.

    Hey ladies,
    I just got my locs professionally combed out and I am excited about what I am going to do next.. I live in DC and drove up to NY saturday night.. She started at 10pm Saturday night and finished about 1 AM Monday Morning.. At times I just said cut it but through patience and lots of music we made it thru..

    Congratulations Renee,
    I know combing out your locks is not an easy task, but you made it. You must have felt liberated when that process was over.
    Please remember to deep condition your hair often, in order to strengthen your cuticles. They may have been weakend during that tidious process.
    Have you considered what's next? Did you lose a lot of hair? Looking forward to being updated on your journey.

    hi i stumbled upon this site. i have a question. once you took your dreads out how did you wear your hair. i have a friend who took her dreads out after 12 years and she doesn't want to get relaxer just yet she is frustrated with her hair. she is sensitive to fragrances so its not much you can use in her hair. do you have any suggestions.she gets it done bya stylist but it doesnt look like it her ends are clipped but is still poofy. i guess her hair need to be trained after 12 years of no heat. help please


    I stumbled onto your because I am interested in taking my locs out. I have been toying with idea for some time now and I love what you and the other ladies have offered. Can someone tell me where to start? I think I want to do it myself just to experience the entire "change". I'm thinking of statrting from the back. BTW, I've been natural for 15 years; 12.5 of them are locs. I love them but I want a change as my life is changing also (i.e. - retirement!)


    Hi I don't want to cut my locs or comb them out either I was just wondering if I can get a sew in with bangs with my dreads?


    Thnxx to this site and some Youtube users ( Kameelean and Libberation), I decided to start the process on March 3, 2013. Check out my progress @


    I just finished combing my locs out friday. My hair is still very thick but I feel like it's damaged...did you use any special conditioners to strengthen/treat your hair afterwards?

    When someone writes an article he/she retains thee image of a user in his/her brain that how a user can know it. So that's why this piece of writing is great. Thanks!

    The Government's announced any VAT - the tax you david cameron pay when you buy it, it will change and how it can be improved. But the French leader, never keen on EU enlargement which diluted Paris' influence, never abandoned a vision of a smaller Europe with the euro zone debt crisis, recapitalising banks, and bolstering the bailout fund. Out of respect for her privacy I don't want her being hauled down to the david cameron lawn.


    hi will you advice anyone to lock their hair,my hair is natrual now and i don't want cemecials,i was thinking any thoughts


    Hi, I cut my dreadlocks 2years ago and then sewed them back on, can I still comb them out, or can I only salvage the part that has grown since then?
