Lock Extensions Introduction
I was asked would I add lock extensions to my own microlocks. I without a doubt would NOT add them to my my locks at my current stage. I am over 14 months into my lock journey, and prayerfully past the baby locks stage. The human hair extensions are lighter in weight than synthetic fibers, but I am not going to spend the time nor money to enhance my styling options when the time to have considered it was from day one, but the Sisterlocks organization does not condone lock extensions. (Sorry for the run-on sentence here.)
My question for the future is this - if a person's face does not support the baby locks phase and they work in a corporate office, is wearing a wig during the baby dreadlock phase better than lock extensions? In my opinion, the wigs cause temporary traction thinning around the perimeter of the head where the wig is resting. I would recommend the human hair lock extensions over the wig. That's just my personal opinion. Of course, my yarn unit worked during the cold months.
Another blogger at junglebarbie.blogspot.com also started her beautiful locks with lock extensions, but I believe a different type of hair was used to extend her locks. Learn more from her video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jkpdmOw1MGI
