Ways to Grow Dreadlocks - Interlocks or Latch-hook Locks

Ways to Grow Dreadlocks - Interlocks or Latch-hook Dreadlocks
Latch-hooking has become a popular maintenance method for Dreadlocks.  Latch-hooking, once mastered, is an easy way to maintain most dreadlocks styles. 

Unfortunately the process by which to use the tool is usually attempted by most people via word-of-mouth instruction resulting in improper use of the tool and technique.

In the words of the Latch-hook Instructional E-Book...
  • You no longer have to worry about your freshly retightened roots coming undone
  • If you are actively working out or swimming, you won't have to worry about getting your hair wet in the pool or shower.
  • Go ahead...rinse your scalp after that vigorous work-out!
The latch-hooking technique has become very popular. To learn how to do this technique Buy "How to Retighten Your Locs Using the Latchin' Technique" E-Book.
