Interlocking near you
The techniques used to create or maintain your locs are important for the long-term outcome of your loc as they mature. Loc interlocking is one of the many techniques that can be used to form locs. It involves either using fingers or tools. It is a very intricate process of intertwining the hair. The end of the loc is pulled through the root and looped around the hair, tightening the new growth at the root. Depending on the length of your hair it can take an average of 4-6 hours. For those who choose to get sister locks, these micro locks can take more than 24 hours to install.
Loc interlocking is ideal for all hair textures, especially for people with loose textures who are afraid the hair will unravel. Loc interlocking is able to keep the loc in place for a while. It is essential to go to a skilled loctician if you choose loc interlocking as the technique of choice. If not installed well, it is easy to cause damage during the intertwining process. Loc interlocking should have the right amount of tightness to prevent any holes in the locs which can lead to breakage and cause thickness.
