Hair Story: Transformation

My FAVORITE hair story transformation was this now long time client of mine who came in to cut off her dreadlocks and had no idea what her hair was going to look like. She knew she was ready to let go of her former self and step into a new look, whatever it was destined to be. It was a total faith in the unknown project for both of us. She had complete faith in my intuitive sculpting process and I had complete faith in both of us. Together, we were committed to vibing high on the transformative journey.

After I cut off each dreadlock one by one, I was able to see what shape we were working with. The back was a little shorter than the front. All of the hair laid above her neck. Some was straight and some was wavy.

After a deep clarifying shampoo from Sayblee’s Lime Family and a good amount of Leave-In Conditioner, her hair began to absorb the nourishing moisture and bend. Hair does this thing when it soaks in moisture. It visibly transforms from rigid or irregular rhythms to a relaxed and calm fluid movement.

Once I could see how her hair wanted to move, I began to design her look. I established a solid perimeter line making sure both sides were even. A lot of her was short on top and made it challenging to avoid a mullet. We opted for an A-Line bob with textured layers. It was cute, sassy and wavy all over.

Her hair required a lot of nourishment to continue to heal from the tightness of the dreads. She took home a complete set of Sayblee products. After a year of treating her hair with love and regular trims, her hair grew thick and voluptuous.

What I love about this process was that she was committed to the proper care of her hair for the long term. She understood that this change was for life. It wasn’t just one quick fix. I’m blessed to have clients that make self-love a priority. It makes my job so easy!
