Hair Lacers set on Relaxed hair
My client has relaxed hair that reaches about bra strap length. She is on the Paul Mitchell relaxer system about every 3 months. She wanted a spiral look. I decided to offer her the hair lacers set because the flexi-rods are too bulky. I can wrap the hair around the lacers, and bobby pin the ends onto the lacers. The hair lacers fit nicely under the platform dryer as well. I also used a lot of setting lotion and foam to coat her hair to protect against the spongy material of the lacers. I did not see any more strands of hair than what the flexi-rods collect so the lacers seem to be safe for all hair types. Dreadlocks, natural hair, or relaxed hair are all welcomed.
With the high humidity that we have been having, my client decided to leave the spiral curls in tact to pull apart later in the week. Removal of the hair lacers once the hair is dry is easier when implementing the technique that I was taught in my Mizani natural hair class last month. Hair by Benita Blocker.
April 2015 Update: My same client repeated this look again and allowed me to pull them apart. Here's the finished look using Nairobi Foam to wet set it.
