Loc Loops Again....




With a fresh retightening and a little more length to my SL's I wanted to try the technique that Salkis Re uses when she sets her hair. She pulls it into a high bun so that her curls are not tight to her scalp. My hair cannot be pulled that high as to I don't have alot of length in the back to keep the locks in the bun. Also, it saves on drying time because the hair that is pulled back is not damp at all! Now I loved the curls that the loc loops gave me the last time however they were a little too tight and I didn't feel too cute until the third day or so when they began to fall. I actually really like the way the locks look within the loops itself, I think the top picture reminds me of alien bantu knots! Even though I can't wear these babies out to work or anything like the wrap a locs I still like the way they look in a weird kind of way. Because I am keeping them in overnight I went to Walgreens with them in my hair and people were giving me odd stares, they probably thought I was "special." I didn't care at all, to me it is no different than when women wear hair scarves in thier hair to protect their perms when it rains except I think I look kinda cute! So I will post pic when my hair is taken down.

I thought that was so creative how she set her hair. I am going to set my hair on soft spikes, and see if I can attempt to do an updo. I am still in love with your new hair color!
