Defined how-to

Hi beauties:

I'm sure that if you have locs and are ceative with your locs, you have seen many Youtube videos or photos of loc'd pipe cleaner curls. Well this post is no different.

Pipe cleaners are the most cost-effective and efficient way of curling locs as they can be purchased from any art & craft store for $3 or less. I purchased 2 packs of 50 and use just about all of them to curl my locs.

Here's a step-by-step pictorial of how I curl my locs using pipe cleaners. If you've curled your locs using pipe cleaners, leave me a comment with a link to your Youtube page or blog post about your curls.

Step 1: Wash hair (or have damp hair)

Step 2: (Optional)
Add product to your hair. I grease my scalp with Dax Kocatah Coconut Oil & Tar Oil mixed with Argan Oil (below) or Black Jamaican Castor Oil

I also spray on the Hask Placenta Olive Oil Leave-In Conditioner

Step 3: After massaging all products in my hair, I start 2 strand wrapping my locs are the pipe cleaners

Step 4: Wrapped all locs on pipe cleaners and leave in until hair dries completely (usually overnight)

Step 5: Pull out pipe cleaners

Step 6: Separate curls and style as desired

View from the back. Nice tight curls :)

your locs look fantastic! this is pretty much the routine i follow when i want my sisterlocks to be very curly. i keep a spray bottle on hand to keep my locs damp because they dry so quickly. the only products i use is an eeov + 100% virgin cold-pressed coconut oil mixture to lightly oil my scalp & seal in the moisture, water, end papers & pipe cleaners. i sit under the dryer for about 2 hrs (of & on) to insure that they are thoroughly dry & it helps my set to last until i wash the curls out & the curls have lasted up to 4 wks & i still had to work them out during the shampooing. i did keep my scalp clean w/hairseptic during those 4 wks.
