Many thanks! I was looking at LCLF analysis today. I am going to try to compare what the 2 offer vs price.

Do you know if the samples of hair are supposed to be shed hairs (caught during the course of the day) or should they be from brush or comb? And do they have to be all collected on the same day? Sorry for all the questions. I could ask the merchants!!!

AFAIK Live Curly Live Free is fairly basic, and I suspect it's a manual/ visual inspection because someone on here said hers was done on her head!

Komaza Care ask for one session's worth of clean shed hair from washing, so no product residues. Goosefootprints has guidance on the Etsy page but I think it doesn't matter you can cut if you prefer, unless you specially want her to look at your shed hair/ root area. I do and will, I feel I am naturally shedding too many hairs with pointy tips (are they breakage or worn or short terminal length?).

I wouldn't use old combed hair only fairly 'fresh', hair dries out over time and that could give false readings for elasticity and porosity.

Thanks again! I appreciate your sharing your opinions/knowledge of the processes. I want to get some roots analyzed too.
