That’s right! I’ve counted in excess of 100 individual strands of cottony coils on my head. I have been locking, also known as dreadlocking, for 12 years now.
Over these years I’ve tried tons of styles and trends with my locs. One of my favorite was Petal Locs. I would wear that nonstop today if it did not take so long to style, though my stylist is phenomenal! In the last two years I began a style known as Loc Knots. I’d wear that style free of rubber bands, and once I took the style out it was two styles in one as I could wear my hair spirally and wavy for weeks following!
Tool for Locs
Which brings me to the reason you stopped to read this post, Wrap -A-Loc. I occasionally browsed other ladies on YouTube who style their locs and discovered the Wrap a Loc technology. It could produce styles like the Loc Knots and so much more! I had tried using pipe cleaners and had great results, except for the metal sticking in my scalp. You would not like that either!
Wrap-A-Loc are light-weight, pliable, rubber-like coated tools that are similar to miniature foam curlers without the foam outer. After locking for 12 years my hair reaches to my derrière. Sometimes, I want a change of length and want all that hair out of my face! Watch my personal YouTube Video Below to get a better understanding.
I decided to fashion my hair in circles, similar to the Petal Locs, but with a coiling of the hair instead of actual time-consuming, individual loops. Unlike the pipe cleaner, Wrap-A-Loc rods did not prick my scalp. They were not too dense for my posture, neck, or usual activity. I am still learning the facets of fashioning these rods which bend every which way and hold the hair as desired. I will rate the experience from start to finish on a scale of 1-10 as a 9.8!
I haven’t a clue as to how I will apply them in my next style. It was an investment, but since I plan on dying with my locs as a preferred style, it was well worth the money!
