Another Free Style Loc Updo

Things You’ll Need:
* Styling Gel ( I used Pure Aloe Vera)
* large rubber bands
* Large straight pins

Instructions:

1. Section hair into 3 sections (you should be able to make 3 pony tails (1) on the top of your head, (1) in the midle, and (1) in the back)

2. Gather the pony tail together- pulling all the locs straight down- take 1-2 locs and wrap them around the pony tail ( you are using the locs to make a pony tail holder) secure the ends with a small straight hair pin or tuck loose pieces into the pony tail. ** You can also use a rubber band or a pony tail holder to make a pony tail and wrap the locs around the rubber band to hide it-if desired**

3. After the pony tail is secured- take the ends (loose locs) and gather them together, put a rubber band around the end ( if some of the locs fall out of the pony tail – its OK-you can secure them later)

4. take the pony tail and roll it under- secure with a couple of hair pins ( I used (1) on each side and (1) in the middle) to create a “bun”

5. Continue Steps 2-4 on each pony tail

6. Apply a little Aloe Vera gel to your edges to control any fly-aways

7. Wrap hair at night with a satin scarf/bonnet, and oil scalp as needed

**Note**
This style took 15-20 minutes to complete.
