A loc bridge intergrated into sisterlocks


I've tried to enhance the pics so you can see the piece in my locs.





For some reason, the white bits are highlighted with the flash on camera. In real life it's in keeping with the rest of my locs and shows up as just a sprinkling of grey.





This is the actual loc link. As you can see it looks dark brown, not really grey.











So I added the loc bridge/link to my locs. (It's a length of thin yarn, maybe 10in, with locs hanging from it.)This is the result. You can see coloured and greyish locs intermingled with dark brown locs. They are part of the bridge. It has 25 -30 locs on it. It's very easy to put in. It goes from temple to temple in a semi circle across the crown and has 3 points where you can attach by twisting your own loc with a loc on the link. I'm testing it out. So far it seems to be staying put. I've tried to find a solution that will add fullness to locs that can easily be put in or taken out. I very happy with this bc it means I can use it whenever I want and just leave it out other days and I can do it myself without waiting for someone to thread my locs through. ( a bit like an instant weave thingy). In conclusion, for those who want or need more locs, this is one of many options for you. After the Chris Rock movie, human hair is erm a little repulsive, so I used synthetic hair and yarn. We gotta move with the times eh.

Good job - you know I follow these 'bridge' posts closely :)
I like the concept... recently I've been thinking about how to make a full cap wig of locs, maybe I can incorporate this yarn string concept. Thanks for the idea!

You and I think alike! I've also given some thought to a loc wig. Even a lace front one. Let's just say, if I could acquire an inexpensive afro texture LF wig that's long enough, I would attempt to loc the hair. Esp now that I found out you don't necessarily have to glue the front down. Ideas ideas....
