THE LOCTYTE TOOL
The LocTyte Tool
… A new professionAl tool for interlocking dreadlocks
Give your thumbs and fingers a rest with the LocTyte Tool, a professional hair tool for interlocking dreadlocks. This technique tightens up the new-growth and locks the hair permanently at the roots. Swimming and shampooing will no longer be a problem because the locs will not unravel. Say good bye to product build-up. You will no longer need lots of gels, creams, or waxes to secure the locs from unraveling. The LocTyte Tool should be used in place of all those homemade hooks, latch hooks, crochet needles, and paper clips that can cause breakage, thinning to the locs and pain to your clients.
