    Default Ends that wont loc

    Hello its been a long while since i posted anything here

    Ive been loced for around 7 years and im having an issues with some ends that wont loc it only seems to be the ones around my front hair line. I feel like my hair grows pretty slow (especially for 7 years) but most of my locs are mature but i have about 3 on the sides of my head that the ends wont loc. I try to twist it and then it just falls out. I had this issues at the start with the locs in the back of my head but those are fine now

    thanks for any and all help

    I suggest you get a small crochet hook (I say the super thin ones that are a couple of milimeters wide) at a craft store or any store with a craft section then

    - push the crochet through the lock from top to bottom starting not too far above the lose ends
    - grab the loose tip and pull it up into the loc.

    Be careful as you pull the crochet up and out of your loc because the hook will certainly get caught into your loc as you. You could end up damaging the hairs and weaken the tip to the point that it falls off.

    When you'll be done, you will end up fat tips but they should thighten over time.

    HTH.
