Curly Baby Dreadlocks:
Below is a picture of a gorgeous curly hairstyle of beginning locks – commonly known as baby locks. This style on multi-textured hair type of 2C/3A hair texture. The hair was parted in medium sized sections and two-strand-twisted. Over time the hair has begun to lock as you can see from the root downwards.
What’s beautiful about these lock twists are the defined curls at the ends of the hair. If you have defined curls and are considering locking, you may consider lightly combing the ends of the hair to ensure the curl pattern remains as the lock matures.
Over time locks can lose the curl pattern on the end. But if you want the curl to remain, lightly comb the ends after washing locks to ensure curls maintain the defined curl pattern. The combed ends will remain unlocked while higher up the lock will still be locked. The loose hairs at the bottom will allow the curl pattern to remain while adding some extra character to your lovely locks.
In this picture you can see beautiful mature locks started on tight curls with texture started on 3b/4a hair texture. If you look at the bottom of the locks you can see the two-strand-twist pattern still visible. These locks were started with two-strand-twists as well but the locks are more mature. These locks are several years old. You can see the curl pattern still visible at the end of some of the locks.
Locks are retightened but the ends are not combed out after each wash so the curl pattern on the end of each lock is much less visible on these mature dreadlocks. If you are starting locks think about your hair texture and the particular look you’d like to accomplish. If you want bud type ends, do not comb the ends upon each wash session. Simply re-twist the locks and let the lock do it’s own thing as this individual has done. Nevertheless, these locks are absolutely beautiful and neatly done. The wrapped knot is a nice touch too!
Try out some new looks with your locks. Try wraps, twists, up-dos, straight or curled locks for a new look.
Here is another photo of a man sporting nicely maintained dreadlocks on type 1 type 2 hair (see hair types here). This hair texture is closer to Caucasian hair. Dreadlocks can still be done on this hair type. However, locs look best on hair that is curly.
As you can see, this young man has naturally wavy and curly hair with some straight hair in certain areas. Although his hair is not as tightly curled as the men above, his dreadlocks are still maintaining the lock.
Locs started with this hair texture is usually teased to enhance the texture to add more thickness to the hair so that the hair can loc much easier. Then the hair is twisted.
Hair usually requires a locing product like wax or a pomade to keep each lock in place since the hair is naturally silkier and requires some assistance to maintain the loc formation.
The unique, relaxed style of this particular look adds a casual twist as the hair is tied up again in a loose knot to keep the hair off of the face.
