Small plastic needles for Loc Tightening
After experimenting with the tapestry needles, I found that the plastic sewing needle would have been better for my smaller front locs.
Overall, I love these plastic needles for tightening of locs. One still has to be careful not to stitch up an adjacent loc, but there is NO spring clip like the Sisterlocks clip tool that will snap the loc off.
The spring load on the Sisterlocks clip tool has snapped my hair completely off at the hands of a certified Sisterlocks consultant. It was a starter lock around my hairline. Hairline hair is always more fragile anyway, but I remember the consultant apologizing about the breakage and continued on using the clip tool through the rest of my hair.
As far as any type of hook tool, one still has to be careful about not adjoining an adjacent loc.
I am pleased that one of my readers mentioned that these plastic needles exist so that I am able to formally share this loc tightening option with you.
For the record, the Sisterlocks clip tool is probably one of the shortest in length as far as loc tightening tools available.
I will continue to add to my collection of loc tightening tools as I grow more loc clientele.
