The Two-Strand Twist Method
This is probably the most common loc start-up method.
|The hair is parted/sectioned off as desired. With each section, you will divide the hair into 2 strands and twist them from the roots right down to the end of he hair (like rope). Some loc-ers start this same process by braiding the hair at the roots to keep them tight, and then twisting.|
|This is a method that is very easily done at home with little-to-no cost involved. It looks very neat right after completion, gives you an almost loc-like look very quickly and withstands coming undone throughout washing and styling.||If you choose to braid the roots, you will probably be able to tell the difference between where your locs were braided vs. where they were twisted-although probably only up close.|
