Loc Styles (Curls)

Here’s how I started: I washed my locs, towel dried them, and while it still was damp, I put it in little knots.
(The are videos on how to do the knots or using pipe cleaners for getting curls on the bottom of the page.)

Or you can use perm rods and wrap around the rod while the locs are still a little moist. Make sure you put the rubber part across the end of the loc when you finish rolling. This will keep the rod from rolling.

I knotted my locs by two (by twisting them). I took out the knots, but did not unravel the loc twsits and I had tights curls. You may want to unravel a couple of them if they are too tight.

It’s all in a matter of pinning up the curls. (It isn’t the greatest one I’ve done, but I really wanted to get it out there. You get the idea!)

Headbands
Try use 2 or 3 headbands in the same color palette or if you want to be colorful, mix it up!

Quick and Easy
Use a clip to hold the curls and you’re out the door!

  2. Hello!

    Thanks for your blog, it’s wonderful. I have a question. A friend of mine washed my locs and palm rolled them into loc knots, I took them out and the curls stayed magnificently for a while–now I’m ready to wash again (this will be the first time washing on my own) and was wondering how do I ensure that my locs come out straight this time? will they? I do have clips so should I clip my hair all the way down as I let them dry? Thanks and I appreciate your response!
