I have known about pipe cleaner curls for awhile now but I’ve only recently decided to try them out for myself. I went to Michaels and bought a pack of 100 pipe cleaners for $2.99. I had thought that one pack would be enough but I really should have gotten another smaller pack. I wrapped each loc on it’s own individual pipe cleaner but near the end I had to combine four locs on one because I ran out .. guess that’s what I get for not remembering the exact number of locs I have 🙂
To my surprise, it was actually pretty comfortable sleeping on them and as you can see I had a head full. Y’all like my favorite robe? LOL..when I’m not in something stylish.. I’m in that thing… sorry just being real 🙂 So anyway, the next day I take them out. I did not re-twist my locs prior to rolling them and I think that was the reason I found taking the pipe cleaners out a little frustrating because the ends would get tangled into the loose hairs at the roots but once I got a routine down on taking them out I was good! 🙂
Well, I’m thinking for this being my first attempt at making pipe cleaner curls….I’m pretty happy with the results! Will this make me put away my loc loops?…hmmm..I don’t think so because sometimes I actually want a looser curl. For those days I want a more tighter curl I won’t hesitate to reach for the pipe cleaners 🙂
That’s my post folks. Y’all take care. PEACE!
