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.
Locs Under a Microscope
As a hair nerd, looking into my locs under a microscope was really fascinating (over 20 minutes of ohhs and ahhs), but I condensed the video into a few minutes. I figured you would be the more interested in the things I discovered inside of my locs. In the video, you will see 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”. Would you believe 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:

Have you ever wanted to see what your locs look like under a microscope? What do you think you would see?
