This morning, I made another homemade loc tie. This one ended up much smaller than I anticipated and was a bit challenging to use for a loc puff. But I managed to get those pipe cleaner curls up into that loc tie.
It is very easy to make your own loc ties and very inexpensive. I estimate I spent less than $4 a piece on materials for loc ties. I’ve researched loc ties, and they can cost $15 to $20 or more. Of course, professional loc ties have a professional flair that I certainly cannot imitate. However, my homemade loc ties do the trick and cost a whole lot less.
