I am going to shoot myself in the foot because I should have done this 4-6 months ago!
I finally bought some long duck-billed clips for my retwisting my locs now that they are thicker and longer…..
The BEST thing I have used !!!
This seems a little much, I know. But I have been using smaller clips on my locs, which allows me to only put 2 locs in at a time. When I retwisted my hair on Monday, I used my new long duck-billed clips. I was able to put at least 4-5 locs in one clip! Surprisingly, this sped up my retwist time a bit and just felt easier overall!
I know some of you may be wondering “well, why didn’t you buy those when you first started?” My only answer is, impatience. I wanted to do my first retwist and I didn’t want to wait to find the long clips, so I bought some shorter ones. They actually served their purpose and they were great; however, now that my locs are getting a little thicker and longer, I want to speed up the time that I take retwisting. I was also tired of using close to 70-something clips! By me using those and just slipping the locs into one clip saves on the amount of clips I use, and the time!
I recommend that if your hair is thick enough and long enough, use duck-billed clips!
