So Ive been think about gettin locs for about three years now but all the while I was still relaxing my hair. My last relaxer was in december and since January i have been rocking kinky twist. My hair is about 2 1/2 inches at the longest point and an inch at it shortest (i had a short cut for the last three years), So my questions are how long should I wait before i get locked and will I have to have my hair cut first??? Help a sista out!

You can check out Sisterlocks...I've read that those can be installed on permed hair.  I've also heard that locks can be started with small braids even if the hair is permed.  Sisterlocks can be expensive but is worth it for those that don't want to cut their hair.  With the small braids, you'll want to decide how handle your new growth...will you do-it-yourself or go to a loctician?  Will you retwist the new growth or palmroll or latch it?? 

Do some research and decide what's best for you and for your hair.
 
But the short answer is yes, you can start locks with permed hair, it'll most likely take extra patience and extra care to get where you want to be though.  Also, you'll lprobably end up cutting off the relaxed ends down the road as your hair grows.
