How Can You Create Locs?
How you start your locs is up to you, but there are a few different ways to do it.
1. Comb Coils: One method shown in the photo above is called comb coils, which is when you use a small-tooth comb to twist small sections of the hair until they form coils.
2. Palm Rolling: Palm rolling is when your stylist takes the hair in small sections and rolls it in their palms to help it tighten and lock up.
3. Braids or Two-Strand Twists: If you have longer hair, you can start your loc journey by braiding or two-strand twisting the hair, but keep in mind that it may take six months to a year for the braiding pattern to fully disappear if this is the method you choose.
4. Organic/Freeform: This is when you stop detangling your hair altogether and let your hair lock up naturally, with little manipulation.
