    Default What is the best way to curl locs?

    Greetings,

    Using the curling tong does not work for me, neither does plaiting it for a week and putting the hair in hot water?

    I would like a nice curly style?
    Help please?

    Soft foam rollers work for me. But my go to for curly styles is to bantu knot my hair. The smaller the sections knotted, the curlier the hair. For loose curls I go with larger sections.

    Hope that helps.

    Have you tried using pipe cleaners?

    Also, regarding braiding, why would you put your braids (plaits) in hot water? I'm only asking because I'm not used to that method. I have, however, had success with braiding my locs overnight and taking out the braids the next morning.

    I suggest a rod set or pipe cleaners.

    I really like using lockloops because they are comfortable to sleep in.

    I like locloops with plain water in a spray bottle. Going to sleep with them has been a dream. And the curls are not bad either.
