New Hairstyle Exploding Across Nation
Have you loc’d up? Not your car, or your home, but your hair? Loc’ing (pronounced locking) is the newest craze when it comes to hair and is exploding in popularity across the nation.
The term loc’ing is derived from word dreadlock however other than the similarity in the name, dreadlocks is a lifestyle whereas locs are a hairstyle. Also, dreadlocks take months to develop whereas loc’s generally only take one or two visits to the hairdresser. Locs can be achieved on many different textures as well methods.
Sister locking is a common form of interlocking which is taking a cluster of hair and putting it in a formation that is conducive for loc’ing. Interlocking is the method used by Jeannee Carr who became interested in locs about 4 years ago when she received some of her own. Carr has since opened her own business in Lynnwood where she installs Sisterlocks. The Sister locking style is not only a prominent way to loc your hair but it has many benefits as well. It does not require any wax or gel to complete which is rare in the world of hair styling. Also, they aren’t as permanent as other techniques although most people who have them installed don’t intend to wear their hair any other way.
Loc’ing can take anywhere from 8-40 hours and will need maintenance every 6-8 weeks however the maintenance doesn’t take nearly as long as the initial installation. One of the most important things about wearing loc’s is that you can maintain a healthy and natural look that is low maintenance. With extensions and weaves being so popular these things are rare to attain and loc’s don’t need to be taken down to only be put back in the next day. A lot of people who receive loc installations describe their reaction as freeing as they no longer have to spend countless hours on their hair. Carr hasn’t regretted her loc’s and neither will you once you experience their results.
