If you’ve ever wondered whether or not using a latch hook to tighten your locs was damaging and could pull your hair out, please allow me to dispel that myth and ease your mind! [Read more…] about Will A Latch Hook Damage Your Hair?Blessings & Warmest Regards,
Today I will answer another question from one of my Bradelocz subscribers…
“Can Bradlocz be taken down and what is the average time it takes to put them in?” – Shelle
Question 1: Can Bradelocz be taken down?
I figure this question is asked because of the “permanency” of Bradelocz, or locs in general.
But the answer is, yes, they can!
In fact, most types of locs can be taken down.
I’ve taken Bradelocz down… twice! Once on my eldest daughter, and once on myself. And while it’s most definitely a very tedious process, even more so the longer you’ve been locked; it’s not an impossible feat!
Also, depending on the length of your hair and the time you’ve had them in, you may have to cut some of the length to make it a little easier. My locs had been in almost 10 years when I decided to take them down.
Question 2: What’s the average time it takes to put Bradelocz in?
This is going to depend on a number of factors:
- The length of your hair when starting out – the longer your hair is, the longer it may take to install the braids/plaits for Bradelocz.
- The size you choose to put in. The Bradelocz ebook has a sizing chart that will guide you on making 3 different sizes. The one you choose will also play a role – the smaller the loc size, the longer it may take. The larger, the shorter amount of time it may take.
- Your hair density (the amount of hairs per square inch of your head) as well as your head size. Not to be funny here, but it’s true! If the circumference of your head is on the larger side, then that may also make the installation of your Bradelocz take longer.
Well, it has now been 6 months since I started my NEW Bradelocz journey! My last update was at 3 months.
I was just sitting here feeling my locs and I notice that they are locking up MUCH faster than they did the first go ’round. I can only attribute it to the fact that my hair was and still is in “locking mode” after I removed the first set, during the short interim where I wore my hair loose (this was evident whenever I attempted to wear a 2-strand twist style…they would start to lock up on me) and now…my hair hasn’t forgotten what it had been “trained” to do for 9 whole years!

It’s been a little while since my last post because I’ve been so busy with other facets of business…but I wanted to give a brief update and share with you how my new set of Bradelocz are progressing. [Read more…] about My 3 Month-Old BradeloczBlessings & Warmest Regards,
Inside: Discover how to start braidlocs – starter locs done with braids, plus advice on what to do before you begin and after you’re finished.
Starting braidlocs isn’t hard to do at all, provided you know how to braid/plait, or know someone else who can do it for you.
I successfully started my own braidlocs (or as I like to call ’em, Bradelocz), and so have many others.
Today, I’m going to share how you can easily start your very own set of beautiful locs, starting with basic braids and be on your way to a journey of freedom with braidlocs!
