Lock Loops: So Easy, A Nappy Headed Black Girl Could Do It
I have never claimed to be a hairstylist. As you may remember from my previous post, if it doesn’t involve a ponytail or a headband, I can’t be bothered.
So when I came across a Lock Loops video on YouTube, I took note. No twisting, braiding or pinning. Just roll, pull through and go. Could I handle that? Indeed!
The Lock Loops cost $9.95 per package of 30; I bought two. They’re essentially a slimmer version of traditional sponge rollers but without the hard edges.
I was sure to just lightly spritz each section of hair before rolling. The package warns against over wetting due to longer drying time, so they’re not recommended on freshly washed and dripping hair.
Here are the vitals:
- 42 Lock Loops used
- 56 minutes total
- No holding products or gel…just extra virgin olive oil and water

I rolled a different number of dreads per Lock Loop depending on their size. As y’all know, I’m a freeformer so my dreads are not uniform. I’d say I used three per roller on average, but sometimes two or even four.
These rollers were comfortable to sleep in and stayed “locked” all night. I left them in until about 1:30 the following afternoon and this was the outcome:
I was very pleased with my handiwork 😀
I’m actually not a big fan of curls on me but these were so simple and comfortable that I think I may use them again.
For simplicity, price and comfort, I give Lock Loops
1/2 out of 5 nappy fros.
