For the past year or so, I’ve been stalking this product called “Locsoc”. I’m sure many of you are familiar with these styling caps. From my understanding, they were originally designed for people with locs, but have been growing in popularity among the loose natural hair community as a way to style and protect our hair as well.
A locsoc is basically just a piece of fabric in the shape of a tube. It has an elastic band on the end to keep it in place around your head. There are tons of styles you can do with your locsoc and it comes in probably hundreds of colors and designs.
I bought five locsocs. Four regular locsocs in various colors and designs and one extra long locsoc.
Each locsoc costs $12, although when I bought them, they were having a sale so I only paid $9 each for them, which I feel is very reasonable. So far they’ve proven to be very versatile. I wear them to sleep to protect my hair at night. I wear them around the house to keep my hair out of my face, and I’ve been experimenting with different styles. So far my favorite style is just to wear the locsoc as a headband. Read the rest of this entry
