Pipe Curls

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! 🙂

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!
