'Any type of hair can do locs but the length of time it takes for the hair to become blended properly varies from person to person’ explains Deborah. There are three different ways you can start your locs, these are:
- Comb twisting
- Hand-pressed twisting
- Instant locs
For comb twisting and hand pressed twists you’ll need to wait 2 to 3 months before you can wash them. They may also look rough in the beginning and while Deborah can speed up the process by blending the hair with a locs machine, patience is key. As you start your locs make sure you don’t overtwist or interlock them as this can weaken the hair.
