Locs are absolutely stunning ropes of hairÂ that can be pinned, curled, twirled and hung for your wedding day. Locs are hair that have grown together and matted over time. Hair is twisted or formed to wrap around itself, creating a rope. There are a few types of locs:
1. Sisterlocs: These locks are small, like the size of micro braids.Â The greatest thing about them are that you donâ€™t have to cut off all of your relaxed hair in order to start Sisterlocks. Nappylocs is a trademarked interlocking method that uses a tool to maintain the new growth. This method can be done on your own as the kit comes with a book, DVD and tool to help you get started and learn to maintain your locs.
2. Freeform Locs:Â Free Form locks are also known as dreadlocks, organic locks or neglected locks. Simply let your hair grow out for as long as you like, however you like.
3. Genie Locs: These locs are created with yarn.Â Hair is braided just like you would for braid extensions and the yarn is braided onto the hair. It can also be twisted. Once the hair has been braided to the desired length, the braids can be knotted and burned at the ends or wrapped with more yarn to create a smooth appearance and eliminate the appearance of braids.
