How To: Loc Knots on Sisterlocks

7:24 PM

Loc Knots are another way to create beautiful curls, and at the same time have a unique style for a couple of days. This works well with long locks, but I was able to create the Loc Knots on my current length as well. Below are the step by step instructions. Note: This will take between 1-2 hours to do, so make sure you have a good movie to watch.

Material Needed
Spray Bottle or Setting Lotion (Optional)
Rubberband (Optional)

Step 1: Spray your locks until your locks are damp. You can also do this after you have washed your hair, but I highly recommend letting your locks air dry  a bit before doing this.

Note: You don't want your locks to be dripping wet. It will take forever to dry, and it can also introduce mildew and add additional stress to the locks which is totally unnecessary.
Step 2: You going to do a simple twist from the root to the tip of your locks. Do not do these twists to tight, especially if you are against tight hair style.

Note: If you have thicker locks, you can skip creating twists and just go to Step 3.

Step 3: You going to then bend your twist up about 3-4 inch (more if your locks are longer than mine, and less if your locks are shorter).You will have to remember to keep your finger in the hoop/bend area you just created. Then you going to wrap the twist you created in Step 2 in a downward motion and around those bended locks you just created.
Step 4: Once you have done wrapping your locks going downward, you going to stick the end of your locks through the hoop you created in step 3. You may or may not need a rubber band to keep them secure.
