Locs Under a Microscope

What's Inside of Locs - CURLYNUGROWTH.com

Do you ever wonder— What are locs made of? What’s going on inside of this bundle of hair? Personally, I was curious about what the internal matrix of my locs looked like, so I decided to put my locs under a microscope. As a hair nerd, looking into my locs under a microscope was uber fascinating (over 20 minutes of ohhs and ahhs) but I condensed this video into a few minutes of the more interesting things I discovered inside of my locs.


Locs Under a Microscope

In the video, I saw the aftermath of the color damage from bleaching my locs, lots of split ends, the reason you should never trim the frizz from your locs, and a few random “things”— I even found some gold, lol! But most importantly, I was able to see what the architecture of a loc looks like on the inside! After you watch the video, a few articles that I suggest you check out are:
