Question by leogurl1801: Hello I Live on Long Island NY and I want to get locs done to my hair I dont want dreds because dreds are ?
organically grown hair meaning their unkept i want Locs groomed and kept nice and clean please someone help me find a salon that does Locs around my area Ill go as far as BK for someone that can do a fab job thank you in advance

Best answer:

Answer by Nonya B
Actually locs and dreads are the same thing. “Locs” is just the politically correct term for dreads. There can be organically grown locs but you are right I don’t recommend this method becuase some end up different sizes and they are rarely clean.

1. Here are some good sites for you:
They are located in Brooklyn and specialize in natural hair.
And they start locs and maintain them for people:
Starter Locs – $ 90.00
(regularly $ 105.00)

2. If you are interested in sisterlocks, khamit does them. Sisterlocks are really cute and I might do them one day, They’re like tiny locs-

3. You can also find a sisterlock technician in your area:
There aren’t any in Long Island I guess, but there are a few in New York.

4. There’s also knottyboy.com. But I don’t really like their method od dread starting, it includes wax and other stuff that can build up in dreads and it seems like more of a white people who want dreads site. There’s nothing wrong with that per se but I find most white people with dreads act like dreads were never a “Black thing”. The last article there explains my feelings exactly:
But knotty boy does give you kits to make dread yourself.

5. And plus if you are like me and are cheap you know you can maintain and start locs by yourself? Lots of people at sites like nappturality.com and naturallycurly.,com who can tell you how. This is a post straight from a 4A thread on naturallycurly.com.

{{{{1. you can start your locs and maintain them by yourself. you can start them with 2-strand twists, palm-rolled coils, braids, or freeform from an afro. however you choose to start them, make sure the base of the loc is about the thickness of a pencil. if they are too thin, you’ll experience breakage down the road. if they are too thick, it will take longer for them to matt and loc and the individual locs will be heavier as they mature, which can cause stress on your scalp years down the road.

2. you do not have to forgo cleansing your scalp to form locs. your scalp should be shampooed 1-2 times a week just to keep sebum and perspiration washed away. don’t worry about coils or twists unraveling. redo the ones that become undone or just leave them alone and let them loc that way.

3. choose a residue-free shampoo. you won’t want to use conditioning shampoos that leave your hair coated, nor will you want to use leave-in conditioners, as they attract lint and dirt, which will embed in the locs and make them dirty and difficult to get totally clean. your focus should be on cleansing your scalp. a light, natural oil smoothed throughout your locs should be an adequate conditioner. avoid wax, shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, pretty much anything that is solid at room temperature. it will create a nasty buildup within your locs that will never come out, no matter how much clarifying you do. trust me, i’ve seen it, and what you’ll end up with are clean-looking locs on the outside, but nasty ooze from product buildup on the inside of each loc, which will make them feel heavy in time. clean locs should feel light and spongy, regardless of texture.

4. some people have good results with liquid castile soap as a shampoo. just be mindful to dilute really well because these soaps can leave residue if you aren’t careful.

5. personally, i would use a nonsoap cleansing method like a baking soda paste with a couple of drops of oil added and rubbed into the scalp, then rinsed away. or green clay, which is a good skin cleanser and will wash away easily under a steady stream of water.

6. buy a nice scarf (satin, cotton, silk, whatever) to keep your hair wrapped at night or when you are lounging around or in windy weather when dust is blowing around to prevent lint and debris from becoming trapped in your locs, as you won’t be able to brush or comb or even pick out debris as easily as you would with loose hair.

7. be patient with the formation of your locs. if you have multiple textures on your head, as many people do, you may notice that parts of your head will loc faster than others. everyone goes through an awkward stage of locing in the beginning. you can use scarves, head wraps, etc., to get through those periods.

8. your locs can be manicured, meaning, you will want to keep all fuzziness at bay by twisting your newgrowth regularly, showing evenly parted sections on your scalp. or you may want semi freeform, where you simply gently pull apart your locs after a fresh shampoo to discourage the fuzzies from matting and connecting locs. or you may want to have organic locs, in which you will let your hair do what it will do, creating spaghetti thin locs in some places, and fat ones in other areas. most people don’t wear organic locs, especially if they plan to work in
