Curling sisterlocks is hardly a tea party, especially if you do not have the right tools. However, it could just as well be a fun and stylish way to add flavor to your looks or to try something new. So, if you are wondering how to curl your locs or what works best for sisterlocks, keep reading!
How Loc Curlers Work
Loc curlers are light, foam-textured hair curling tools. These come in packs of 4, 6, and 8. They are flexible, heat resistant, and easy to use. You don't have to worry about getting snags in your hair or applying heat to achieve juicy curls.
The number of curlers you'll need depends on how tight you want your curls or how much volume your locs have. On average, 5 to 10 packs should do.
The curlers are designed like heart-shaped keys. Each curler opens up in the middle like a clamp. So, you insert a small section of your hair and roll them up from the tips to the root or halfway. Then you seal the curler by fixing the thin edge in the heart-shaped hole.
The design of the curler helps to keep your locs secure, so you can keep them overnight or as long as you like. Leaving the curlers in for extended periods helps your hair stay curled longer.
You can use these curlers on damp or dry hair, depending on your preferred look. Using them on damp/wet hair results in more defined curls and a compact finish. If you want to give your hair a voluminous look, use the curlers on dry locs. You'll need to fluff them lightly with your fingers, and there you have it.
Hear from TestiMonet:
Monet has dark brown locs of medium length. She's had some of the locs near the front dyed with a soft golden color. Now, your locs don't have to be as long as Monet's to have lovely curls. These foam loc curlers work for natural 4C hair as well as locs. And they produce beautiful curls, as you can see on Monet.
This was her first attempt, and it was a great adventure! Here's how she did it. She took out small sections and rolled them up. Then, she fluffed them out with her fingers without separating the locs completely. The result is a beautiful bounce of curly sisterlocks that frames her face, and elevates her look. If you like, you can curl just the ends of your hair. That would go nicely with dyed tips. Or just them curl down to the roots like Monet.
Ultimately, your hairstyle is what you make it, and you can't go wrong with these curlers.
Tips to Get A Great Loc Curling Experience
- Wash your locs with the Loc Bombs beforehand so your locs are flexible.
- For thinner curls, use more loc curlers. Only a few packs will do if you want large loose curls.
- Make sure your hair is completely dry when taking the curlers out.
- Enjoy your snag-free curls.
If you are like Monet and looking for cute options to style your locs, this is definitely for you. There is truly no limit to how creative you can get with these. Feel free to try them out, and rock your locs with a twist!
