The Wonders Of Black Hair: Stylist Finds Way To Create Instant Locs

August 27, 2015  |  

I’ve been Black all my life, born with and have had vast experience with Black hair; and yet, it never ceases to amaze me.

The capabilities of Black hair are infinite.

Stylist Kris McDred, lives and works in Dubai, has just discovered another one. As a loc-ed lady, I know that the months it takes for your hair to lock can be extremely annoying. While you might expect your hair to be fully formed into perfectly coiffed locs, that is just not the reality of the situation, or it wasn’t for me. And many others. For six months, I walked around with fuzzy, two-strand twists I couldn’t wash on my own. My hair was such a mess that a full year after I’d begun the process, my younger cousin just realized what I was trying to do.

But McDred claims to have discovered a technique that claims to bypass that awkward, “I-don’t-like-my-locs” phase altogether.

He uses a rattail comb, a crochet hook and a bit of molding gel. Then he interlocks the remaining strands afterward.

Yes, it probably is as difficult as it sounds. McDred said that it takes some time to master the technique but the results are quite impressive and they just might help somebody not give up before they even get started on their loc journey.

You can watch McDred in action in the video below;

Does the ability to skip this awkward phase change your thinking about possibly getting locs? Do you believe there’s value in the process of allowing your hair to grow and lock naturally, on its own?
