I love single strand flat twists.  They are difficult to do incorrectly.  If they come undone while working, you don’t have to start over!  You can simply start where you left off.

To achieve a large loc puff, I used a panty hose pony tail holder.  I snipped off the legs on an old pair of black panty hose.  Then I cut off the desired thickness for a pony tail holder.  As locs thicken, regular hair ties break.  (I’ve already snapped several).  Panty hose stretch very nicely and give short locs more body in a pony tail.
