New Style

Hello everyone!

As you all have seen in previous photos, one of my favorite loc styles is CURLS. I have always achieved this style by putting my hair into bantu knots and then wearing a bantu knot-out.

As my locs have gotten longer I've been wanting more of a "spiral" look. I have read several posts on blogger and nappturality stating that the best way to achieve this look is to use pipe cleaners.



I had been planning on picking some up, but had pushed it to the bottom of my list of things to do. Well, a couple of weeks ago I was strolling through Family Dollar and spotted some for 1.00 so I had to go ahead and buy some.

You can use whatever products you normally use to style your locs. Also, be sure your locs are wet before you curl them and let them fully dry before you take the pipe cleaners out.

Here is a tutorial:



Mine are various colors so it may be easier to see...
Here's how I wrapped mine:








Here is the result:




The curls are kind of tight, I personally like my hair better as the curls fall; and that's exactly what happened as the days went on...

Happy curling! :)
