    Default Considering Combining Locs

    Hi,
    Since I have been self-retightening my locs, I realized how incredibly small some of them are. I am considering combining some. Has anyone combined their locs? If so, what was your experience?

    Yes, I've done it with both sets of locs. I had a set several years ago I had for five years, I combined them as time went on. My current set I've had since 2015 and about six-eight months in I combined them all. Since they were relatively new, I just two strand twisted them together and put black rubber bands on the ends. As time went on they began to mesh and I snipped the rubber bands off.

    A few in the back refused to mesh all the way to the ends so I have a few two headed dragons. They weren't noticeable at all; of course I know they're there. In fact, now they're meshed to withing 1-1.5 inches to the tip, that's where it's forked now. I say continue to research and go for it!

    Thank you! I have started to combine a few by two- strand twisting. Thanks for the idea about snipping the rubber bands. I'm probably down to 450 locs. I will continue to combine!
