3 Reasons for Wearing Free Formed Dreadlocks

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.

    • Hey. The Rastafarians completely freeform their hair. They wear tams to tighten their locs, and their hair is still considered freeform. This is a really good method. Your locs may have some fuzz, but the fuzz will be closer to the loc. The tam makes your locs tight and will help incorporate the new growth without putting a strain on the root system. Wool works the best. Cotton is next, and then comes hemp. Make sure you buy a tam that fits. Where it as much as possible. It’s especially good to sleep in it. If your hair is wet, don’t put it on until your hair has thoroughly dried. Good luck!
