Questions commonly asked and answered

Loc-Key™ TOOL FAQs

We do not give instructions on how to start your locs only very basic instructions on how to retighten them. We recommend that you consult a professional loctician to install your locs.

We provide instructions for a basic tool locking method. However, if you already have Locs and they were not started with a tool, we recommend you seek professional advice. Switching from one locking method to another can cause weakness on the Loc if the hair is not properly prepared at root level.

The Loc-Key™ tool is excellent for any hair type. However, we have found that tightly textured hair locks quickest and works best when forming Locs without the addition of products.

How your Locs are installed is down to personal choice. It is possible to start your Locs using braids, twists, palm rolling etc. We recommend installation by a professional loctician as, in our opinion, this will give you the best foundation prior to self maintaining. The Loc-Key™ tool is also great for people who know how to lock or have been instructed in the process.
