....and I can't remember who sent this to me but I am forever grateful. Ms. Lumina sent it to me. Giiiiirl, I will love you forever! How simple is this? I played around with a few locs just to see how it would take and it worked perfectly. This is 10x better than palm rolling. My only concern is the pattern of my locs. Will I have locs that look funny because half of the loc is palm rolled and the other half is interlocked or latched? Hmmm.....
Boy, I tell you. There is SO much loc knowledge on YouTube. It's amazing.
Lawd, I dun found another vid from the gorgeous Ms. Butterfli
When she said "I tend to latch more when it's warmer because I sweat more," I knew that latching was for me. I sweat ALL the time. Makes me wonder why I didn't interlock in the first place. I just made my own latching tool. More details about that coming soon.
I found yet ANOTHER video. This "loc latching" thing has taken up a great deal of my day but I'm not complaining because the things I am learning are exciting me to no end. The question I had about going from palm rolling to interlocking was answered in this video.
I really think I'm going to start latching from now on. I just have to figure out how many rotations I am going to do. Latching just makes sense! Especially with my working out everyday and dealing with slipping palm-rolled locs.
