This Hair Trend Is Taking Over In 2020, Here's Everything You Need To Know


While I love a fresh set of box braids and a silk press, I've grown jaded with my normal styles and with the new year rapidly approaching, it's time to try some new sh*t. If you, too, are looking to switch up your look this season, this style may be your key to leveling your locs just in time for the holidays.

As the name suggests, microlocs are smaller versions of normally pencil-sized dreadlocks and can be started using a number of methods, including braids, interlocking, and twists. Most women opt for this option versus traditional dreadlocks because they are neater, more versatile, and even easier to maintain. Much like Sisterlocs, microlocs offer a more voluminous look upon completion.

For your locs to meet the criteria and actually be considered microlocs, they must be smaller than a pencil, leaving you with more than 100 coily locs after the style is fully installed. Although there is no established formula for installing microlocs, the style requires at least 6 to 8 hours of your time every few months, and after checking out how these naturalistas made the style work for them, it's a commitment we're willing to make.

We’ve all been there at least once (or a few times) along our dating journey. Maybe you’ve had a date or two with a potential suitor, but the spark just wasn’t there. Perhaps you convinced yourself that just “one more” date would help you overlook a non-negotiable ick. At this point in the dating cycle, you’ve probably reached the point where you must decide to either communicate “why” things won’t be moving forward or simply ghost them.
