So, if you're at all on Youtube you will have noticed the latest loc style rage: coiled locs. What's great about the style is that it actually works for short, medium and long locs! I took one look (okay, I watched about five vids) and knew I had to try it.

The loc tut originated with Fauryn78:



I like the way the style turned out and my hubby loved it, too. I know it looks a little different because I have less locs but I like it! I used Oyin Handmade Shine and Define and Burnt Sugar. Loved the shine!






I slept with the hairpins and this morning those coils stayed intact after I removed the pins. We'll see how long I can stretch the style. I'm looking forward to the curls!

I LUV the style! Your hair looks so shiny, really nice! Cannot wait to see how it looks when you take it down. You need to Vlog this on here!

Questions though: is this the Oyin from your last purchase? And did you wash first?

Thanks Tasha! I'm not quite ready for vlogging ;)

The Oyin products are from my last purchase. I applied the Shine and Define to the entire loc and then I palmrolled with the Burnt Sugar. I didn't wash first. Just came home Friday evening and decided to give it try.

Cute style. It's great to be able to get two styles in one. (We had such a good time at the meetup. I really enjoyed it.)

Thanks! The meetup is tempting me to try to set one up for my area.

Your hair looks great! I love doing a bantu knot out on my hair.

Your hair looks soooo good. I began trying this a couple of weeks ago, but my hair looked so dry. I was just trying something different. I will try again with some product to see if it makes a difference.

Thanks Foxylocs! I can say without a doubt the Oyin products made all the difference. My locs were looking a little limp before I tried the style.

Hey Mama! I'm back!! So excited to come back and see how much you're hair has grown! OMG! It looks amazing. I love the style! I think I might even try it on my hair after my current style wears out. Keep up the good work!

So glad to see you around again Cheri :) Thanks so much for the kind words!

How is the -do holding up? Have you taken it down?

i_amEatingRight said...

I took the 'do down Monday morning. A little too funky for work :) The curls were. . .weak. I think my hair is too short to curl instead my locs were wild and wavy! I have some pics to post later this weekend.

Hope you have a great weekend!
