Instant locs Pros and Cons

Instant Locs are dreadlocks that are created "quickly" using the Crochet Method, which is a technique for making fully locked dreadlocks. Sometimes, this method is referred to as "Instant Dreads" or "Instant Dreadlocks."Instant locs are created by dividing the head into precise equal sections, backcombing the hair in each piece, and then weaving the hair by using a mini crochet needle and a clever latch-hook. The procedure is quick and easy, and you can shower your hair right after it is completed.

"Conventional" locs are started with comb coils or interlocking, but considering the texture and preferred outcome, "instant locs" can also be started with twists, plaits, or a crochet needle (this technique can cause some breakage to the hair if not executed well. Always consult with an expert and see if their final styles look good). The most prudent course of action is to make a choice depending on your budget and lifestyle. If you have a lot of activity and shower your hair often, comb coils may be the most difficult to take care of. Interlocking, particularly sister/micro locs, can be rather costly.

To prepare your hair for dreads, avoid using any non-natural hair products or conditioners for at least a month before your session. You should rinse your hair with a naturally derived herbal shampoo for at least a week to aid in the removal of chemicals that may have accumulated in your hair.

In spite of the fact that locs tend to accumulate pollutants and debris more quickly than loose hair, over-washing can dry out your scalp and cause peeling, irritation, breakage, and thinning locks. It is recommended to rinse the early locs once every 1-2 weeks and allow them to grow before washing. The removal of early dreadlocks can be accomplished with the proper approach, but as the dreadlocks become more and more rooted over time, it becomes increasingly difficult to remove them.
