Mizani Lacers are soft foam styling tools that are used to create texture, not only on locs but loose natural hair, braids, twists and relaxed hair. The unique design of the Lacers in a loop allow you to use it several different ways. One of my favorite ways to use the Mizani Lacers is to create loose curls on thick locs.

What I love about the Mizani Lacers is that for thinner/soft hair like mine, the Mizani Lacers actually give you a lot of volume at the root to make your locs look even more full! I’ll show you how I use the Mizani Lacers and only water to create these voluminous loose curls on thick locs that last for weeks in my latest Youtube video:
