1. No more dealing with buildup
With dreadlocks that are formed through twisting with gels or creams there is always the concern of product buildup. With free formed locks since you do not have to put anything on your roots, all of these concerns are eliminated.
2. Even easier maintenance
While you still will have the basic routine of cleansing your hair, conditioning it, and moisturizing it your routine will be even easier since you will be leaving out the twisting of your roots. Wash your hair and go without worrying about anything else.
3. The variation of the loc sizes looks pretty cool
The different shapes and sizes that your locs take on form a unique look. With free formed locs you have a beautiful earthy style, without working too hard to do it.
Although your locs may be thicker using the free formed method, this does not have to limit the creativity of your hair styling. You hair can be curled naturally by using bantu knots or braiding your hair up to create a curly or wavy look. From elegant updos to long curly flowing hairstyles free formed locs look amazing.
You can choose to either start your locs off by free forming or you can choose to semi-free form. Semi- free forming is when you start your locs off by using the twisting method or an interlocking method and then you simply stop using these methods to tighten your roots. This way you have control over the sizeof your locs while also getting the benefit of a free formed look. With semi free forming you also reduce tension from re-twisiting and greatly reduce the risk of breakage and thinning.
