How to Create The Curls with Clips or Bobby Pins
Here is the process for those who want to read instead of watch. You start by dampening your locs with some water. Section off your hair into parts, take a piece of hair, place your finger above the root, but not all the way down at the root. Wrap the hair around your finger as if you were applying rollers. Take the hair with your thumb, wrap it around, and set it on top of itself. It is better demonstrated in the video, so please watch. Hold the hair in place as you pull your finger out, then clip it or use bobby pins to keep it in place.
