ORGANIC, FREEFORM, CULTIVATED AND WTF???
Organic Locs - are sometimes known as "Marley Dreadlocks" after the famous Rastafarian, Bob Marley. They are locs started and maintained completely without manipulation. Hair is washed and left alone. No combing, no separating, no softening products, no interference. This method will create locs of different sizes and shapes, since the hair is not manipulated in any way other than washing. It is a method preferred by Rastafarians. -VIA nappturality.com
Freeform Locs - These locs are started by simply washing your hair and leaving it alone to bud on its own. Buds are the characteristic "balls" and "folds" that form on sections of hair when shed hair is not combed out. Once the locs begin to form buds, the buds may be gently separated by hand until the desired thickness is achieved. -VIA nappturality.com
Cultivated Locs - are locs started with any method other than freeform or organic. They can be started with two strand twists, braids, comb twists, single twists or palm rolls and all methods require maintenance when starting off. These can be started either by a loctician in a salon or by yourself quite easily. There are degrees of cultivation, meaning you can have a high degree of maintenance/cultivation or low degree to start your locs. It all depends on the process you choose and the look you want. If you want your locs tight to the scalp, you will have to dedicate some time to separate and re-tighten the locs at the base. If you don't mind the fuzzy base look, you don't have to manipulate as much. It's up to you. -VIA nappturality.com
