Did you know that there are some hair geniuses out there who can reattach your original locs if you decide to cut them off?! I know right! That sounds CRAZY but apparently it is possible. Actually, it is similar to applying loc extensions. I learned about this when I recently inquired on FaceBook about new loc styles that could mimic a short hair cut. I love technology because in a matter of hours I had helpful responses. Kinky Curly Island Gurl (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Kinky-Curly-Island-Gurl/232006620146085?sk=wall) told me to check out Loc’d and Lov’n It, another FaceBook page (http://www.facebook.com/locdandlovinit).
I learned that it’s possible to do all kinds of things with my locs, for example folding the locs and twisting them around themselves to shorten them, using pipe cleaners to roll them (similar to a straw set I guess). This is amazing and I’m now on a hunt for a day or two when I can have the time to experiment. I will post any helpful pictures I take as I experiment. Thanks Kinky Curly Island Gurl and Loc’d and Lov’n It!
Also, here is a loc reattachment tutorial if you’re interested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hIvT5XoegZM. There are some creative folks out there! J
