7 Locitude #LocInspiration Hair Styles for Short Locs.

Hello Loc Heads, This one is obviously for fellow loc heads in the awkward phase of their locs. The awkward phase is usually sometime around Day 1 - Year 2; when your head is full of scalp after a fresh re-twist and your locs seem too scanty, when your hair unravels after a fresh re-twist before you say can say Jack Robinson; when you think water is your worst enemy because it's preventing your locs from forming; when you are having a bad hair day and you feel like - Oh God if only I could get my hair into a ponytail it would do. I can go on and on... but instead I present you with 7 Style Ideas for short locs. #LocInspiration no. 1: Loc loops or Loc petals. Reminds me of a cropped hair cut, this style looks classy and elegant. Can be worn to an event. It's also neat and can help with a more serious/subtle look. #LocInspiration no. 2: Pinned Up side. Even though it is just pinning up one side of your locs, it always make a difference. A touch Style. You can use ha

To Free Form, Semi Free Form or not.

Hiya, My Locs would reach the 6 year mark this year and as you may imagine I'm getting a bit bored (Yes, I get bored too). This time I'm not thinking to cut them, I have considered colour but not sure I want to commit to being 100% diligent with the silk bonnet, daily moisturising and fear that my locs may thin out from the colour in another year or three. This time I'm thinking to Free Form or should I say Semi Free form or Not. Ladene Clark If you don't already know, Free Form is a method of getting locs by doing nothing to your hair. You stop combing it and the hair mats itself. I'm of the opinion that this is the one true state of locs and they are beautiful. I retwisted my locs over 8 weeks ago, March 28th to be specific, in an attempt to Semi Free form; which means I stopped retwisting I just wash, condition and oil them. Then I try separating them at the roots so that I maintain existing loc strands and here's my observation so far.

Hair How To: Loc Loops/Petals in 4 easy steps.

Hello, #TGIF #ItsTheWeekendBaby #PhotoShootModeActivated #Locitude #HairHowTo #LocsAndAttitude #LocWorkshop #ComingSoon #OkReadBelow. I'm obviously excited, payments for my shipment on brand new dada products stock has finally gone through (It is not easy to be a Nigerian #That'sAll), now waiting for the products to get here. I hope it doesn't take forever. I found this FREE accounting app called waves app, which is helping keep my spend together. I usually get excited when I learn new stuff, so yaaaayi. Seems this hobby is becoming a business sooner than I imagined. Sorry back to the Loc loop Tutorial... Step 1: Select two strands of locs close to each other. (You can use only one strand of loc only or 3-4 depending on how thick your locs are) Step 2: Take the ends of your strands, fold them towards the roots making a loop Step 3: Fasten the base of the loop with a tiny rubber band. Make sure it's not too tight. Step 4: Style to your taste
