Just dropping in to share some recent purchases for my locs. Firstly I decided to invest in a set of duckbill clips which differ from the double and single pronged clips I use when retwisting. I started to notice that the pronged clips would leave indentation marks where they were holding the dread in place.
Large duckbill clips don't compress my locs and can hold several locs at once which will be more comfortable overall. I also bought hair pins which are different from bobby pins and are much better for styling my plump dreadlings:
Much like the duckbill clips, the hair pins don't compress my locs so I can wear them without causing tension and eventual weak spots.
I mentioned buying ouchless bands for the recent style I've been doing. I like how they are just the right size for my locs at this stage, i.e. I only have to loop them once to get a firm hold, again, without compressing them.
Lastly, current hair shots:
