This is the first time I have tried crotchet locs. I will say at first I did not love the hair on me, as I am not use to locs. I love locs and love seeing them on others but felt different about it on me.
First impression: At first glancce the hair lives up to its name Afri-Naptural as it has a nappy natural look. The appearance is thick and coily.
Pros: Thick and coily (real loc appearance), easy to curl, easy to install (as it is prelooped), flame retardant, each curl had a different pattern (which is true to actual, natural locs)
Cons: I wish the loop was slightly bigger for faster easier install, and that there were more than 24 strands in each pack of hair, length of the hair is too long for those who like shorter lenghts like me, depending on how you want the curl pattern *each curl is tighter or slightly looser (not too visible to the naked eye once installed), more of a wavy pattern than a curly pattern
Overall impression: After curling each strand with the perm rods I appreciated the new look. The curl tendency of the hair allows versatility for any curl pattern. I am sure I can keep this in for 3 months with maintence. Kept recieving compliments of looking exotic, and tropical, and agreed ! great summer look! it is hot and us natural girls need an easy protective style, why not switch it up with some locs and bejewel it while you are at it, with shells, beads or the hair cuffs !!
