Palm Rolling vs. Interlocking: Which Is Best?

The Great Debate—Palm rolling vs Interlocking. Is one better than the other? Which one locs hair faster? Will my hair be damaged from switching? The list goes on with questions circulating amongst the natural hair community about palm rolling vs interlocking. Whether you’ve arrived here for reasons of repair, longevity, or just curiosity, I’ll share with you the advantages and disadvantages of each technique to help you decide what’s best for your hair.

Palm Rolling vs Interlocking

The Difference Between Palm Rolling and Interlocking

What is Palm Rolling?
Palm rolling is a maintenance technique in which the palms of your hands roll (or twist) the hair into a circular formation. This technique is mainly used on traditional and semi freeform locs.

What is Interlocking?
Interlocking is a maintenance technique in which the end of the loc is pulled through the root to tighten the nugrowth to the scalp. This technique can be achieved with a tool or with fingers; and it is commonly used in the Sisterlocks™ and micro locs hair locking systems.

Loc Maintenance with Interlocking

Fundamentally, the two techniques— palm rolling and interlocking— are very different, but let’s explore the advantages and disadvantages of each technique to help you understand which method would be best for your hair.

Advantages of Palm-Rolling

Time-Saving. On average, a Loctician can complete your palm-roll maintenance within 45 minutes-1 1/2 hours, whereas interlocking maintenance can take upwards of 3-4 hours when professionally maintained.

Simple. By using your hands to cultivate the locs, the palm-roll maintenance is simple enough to be done on your own. However, any professional Loctician will tell you there are specific angles that help prevent unraveling, clip organization will keep your maintenance in longer, and maintaining the parting system is not easily replicated at home without training.

Advantages of Interlocking

Longer Lasting Maintenance. The time that you wait between maintenance sessions is considerably different when you maintain your locs with interlocking. On average, you’ll have your locs maintained every eight weeks, compared to once a month with palm-rolling.

For all hair textures. Interlocking is a technique that can be used to start and maintain any texture of hair because it prevents the hair from unraveling and encourages the hair to stay in place to begin the locking process.




Disadvantages of Palm Rolling

Over manipulation. With too much retwisting / palm-rolling you can drastically thin out your locs or even trigger baldness in an attempt to “keep your locs neat”.

Unraveling. Often times with DIY Loc Maintenance, not protecting your hair at home, or while working out can cause your locs to unravel at the roots.

Disadvantages of Interlocking

Smaller locs. Interlocking is better suited for smaller locs, both in size and density. What this means is that it is very rare to see thicker sets of locs that are maintained with interlocking.

Potentially Damaging. There is a specific technique that is used with interlocking and when it is not executed proficiently it can produce holes in the locs which can lead to breakage and thinning. Also, if the correct amount of tension is not used, this can cause locs to thin at the roots or trigger traction alopecia.

So, is palm-rolling better than interlocking? In my professional opinion, I don’t think so; rather I believe that the maintenance technique is dependent upon the expertise of the individual executing it. If you’re not trained on interlocking techniques, you can cause irreversible damage, but you can also create problems with improper palm-rolling. I encourage you to consider your lifestyle, budget, and accessibility to a professional when determining which method would be best suited for your hair.  Seeking advice from a Professional, if only through a consultation, and asking very detailed about concerns you may have will allow you to be proactive (instead of reactive) with healthy hair care.

Next week, I’ll be sharing the answer to another common question “Can You Switch Between Palm Rolling and Interlocking?“.

In the comments, share which method you use to maintain your locs and add any more advantages (or disadvantages) that you can think of!

Thanks a million

I’m glad you enjoyed the article! Come by again next week 🙂

I have interlocks as a male and I thanks for the information honestly. Helped me out a lot

Just starting my locs. My hair is very fine and very curly. But when wet go completely straight. Big problem when trying to loc.
Any suggestions on best way to get started?

Heddalynn

I am in the process of creating a course for people with soft, fine hair that want to get locs which will be available in the NuGrowth Academy. In the meantime, you can reference an article I posted a few months ago, “The 7 Methods for Starting Locs“.

Dear Mrs. Renè, i would realy like to change my natural hair into the sisterlocks style. Do you know anybody in Germany who could help me through my journey?

My locs are about a month old and I’m considering getting them interlocked.. I play basketball 4-5 days a week and I have a physically demanding job. I feel like with my lifestyle its best to get my hair interlocked so I can worry less about my hair unraveling at the roots. Thanks for this, it was a big help. Do you have a specific method you recommend using to interlock? I’ve seen a couple of youtube videos but they all pretty much had different techniques. One guy in particular, Chris McDread, seems very knowledgable and he suggests the 9-12-3 method when interlocking.. Do you have a specific technique that I can advise my loctician to use?

Thanks for your time

I am so glad that this article helped you; you definitely sound like you’re a great candidate for interlocking. If your Loctician does not understand or know how to properly interlock hair, I would NOT use them for that service. You can do a lot of damage if you’re not knowledgeable about the technique.

I use the interlock method to maintain my locs. I only maintain my hair every 2-3 months, and may do a light retwist in the 2 weeks before my interlocking to gather loose hairs together. After 6 years, my roots are strong, my hair is mid-back length, and where a few loc roots have thinned, I have combined them with success. I love my hair!

Thank you so much for sharing your experience! I love when people can share positive experiences with interlocking because I think interlocking gets a bad connotation by people that don’t understand it.

I have very very thick 4c hair and I chose to Interlock thick dreads. Most ppl tell me they can’t tell they Interlocked. With my thick locs I have as many on one side of my head as most ppl have on their entire head. I have been locked for 9 years and I love it

I visited a loctician today and your article helped clarify exactly what I needed to know. Thanks

Yay! I’m so glad that it helped you make the right decision!

I started my locs after retiring from the Navy and love it. My hair hated chemicals and has grown so much better now that I’m natural. I have thin hair on top, so my locs are small, and I tend to palm roll, but I have also used the interlock method. I do exercise and swim in the summers so my roots loosen and are shaggy so I interlock to hold the look better for a longer period of time. I palm roll in between interlock sessions to keep the look neat as possible. My roots are strong and I haven’t seen any problems in doing both. I just use which ever works best in the situation. As you said in the article, interlocking works better if you need to shampoo often. I trim my locs to stay just past shoulder length due to my thin top, but it’s thickening up and starting to fill in so I may let it go a bit longer. Yay! I only use water, tee tree oil and black castor oil on my hair now and it has worked wonders.
Thank you for your articles and good luck with your new set of locs.

Phyllis Gilchrist

I maintain my Husband s locks and I actually mix the methods. I palm roll the front and interlock the back. This helps keep the front really neat for his conservative workplace.

Thank you for sharing your experience! It is true you can mix or alternate the methods to meet your needs.

I have a question about budding….when the locks begin to bud, is there anything special that needs to be done? For instance, when retwisting locs using the palm rolling method, does the whole loc need to be manipulated or just the New growth?

The entire loc should be maintained, not just the roots.

Thank you for this great article ! I have been palmrolling for the past two years and I recently started to interlock to keep them from unravelling since I workout more. Do you think it’s a good idea to combine both techniques ?

I’m glad you enjoyed it! Please take a look at the follow-up article “Switching Between Palm-Rolling & Interlocking Without Causing Damage” or if you prefer to know specifically about how it is affecting your locs, please visit NuGrowthSalon.com to setup a “Virtual Consultation”.

Good morning! I am 6 1/2 weeks into my loc journey and I am having problems due to my hair texture being about 3c/4a in some areas. I didn’t realize how slippery/soft my hair was until I began this journey. Anyway, I’m having a big problem with UNRAVELING IN THE MIDDLE of my locs, not at the root or end but the middle. The two strand twists have separated themselves from each other but are still connected by the root and ends. My hair/root holds well after a retwist though! Some are budding little by little while others are being disobedient untwisting in the middle. How does that even happen and how do I combat that? Help!!!!! >.<

Omg looove this article so much. I get so many negative comments from people that think they know it all about the different methods of locking our hair. I’m very active and tend to sweat a lot fairly easy so I chose the interlocking method. I watched all kinds of videos and practiced and researched it before I even started mine. I’m over 5 years in now and loving it. I get so many compliments on my hair from more people than not. I love my interlocking journey. I also interlock my brothers hair because he plays basketball regularly. We haven’t experienced any thinning or breakage at all. Thank you! I am glad I just found your site.

Thanks so much for sharing your experience (and your brother’s)! I’m happy interlocking has allowed you to continue your active lifestyle! xo

Hi Jocelyn,

I have interlocks and I’ve been thinking about getting rid of my locks, it’s been 8 awesome years but I want a change.
Can you comb out interlocks or do I have to cut them off?

Hi Karen! You can definitely comb them out!

seriously? how? especially if they are very long like back length?

Hi Jocelyn,

I’m very happy to have found your blog! I started my locos with two-strand twists back in November 2016, and recently realized I was doing everything wrong (like washing my hair with my locs loose) so they haven’t really loced yet. I wanted to stick with semi-freeform because I want thicker locs, and because I have sensitive edges with breakage I’m trying to repair, and felt interlocking would be more stress on them.

My question is whether or not you feel I should stay away from interlocking, and if so, how can I keep my locs from unraveling when I’m active.

Hi Denise! I’d love to help you! Schedule a virtual consultation at your convenience so we chat get you on the right path!

Hello, I really enjoyed this article. I was just wondering if interlocking shorten the loc? I have only been at this for a month now and I don’t believe I got the palm rolling down just yet.

Thanks for checking out the article! Interlocking elongates that hair but in the beginning stages of locking, you will experience “shrinkage” with both methods.

If you need help with Palm-Rolling at home and what to be sure you’re cultivating your locs properly, I have an online class for you: http://bit.ly/retwistathome

Thank u very much for this article. I’ve had my hair hair loc’d for almost six years now and I luv it. I’ve always had it palm rolled but now I tend to be more active. Also hormones are getting funny. So I was debating on whether to start interlocking and if it would cause damage. But now I’m more informed. I usually don’t get my hair done til 2-3 months anyway. Can’t wait to try interlocking method. Thanks so much again.

Hi Jocelyn,
Well I finally did it. That is decided to loc my 4c hair. For years I would not imagine it, but as I got older (50s), I began to gradually succumb to the idea. January of this year I finally took the plunge at age 58. However, it has been quite a journey so far. At the beginning I have been to several beauticians. The first I thought did a pretty good job but cost bit much, that was palm roll. She told me to come back in two months.

Well in March, I decided to go a cheaper route with the suggestion of my sister who told me to get it done cheaper at a salon school. That was a complete disaster, my hair was looked like buckwheat. The very next day I went to different salon and had my hair done by a very young girl in in her early 20s, that too was a disaster. Some of my locs were tiny and some was huge, it was terrible, I also think my hair was not still locking at that time. I called the owner of the salon and they agreed for me to come back in and have a more experience person do it. Well I came back in and another different women started my locs all over again from scratch. She palm rolled most of my hair and interlocked the back, I believe the very last row to be exact. It probably would not had been so bad but she used a lot of hair to interloc with which made those locs in the back look horrible. I did not realize that until much later, otherwise I would of came back yet again. At this point I was so disgusted and just wanted to take everything out and call it quits.

I stuck it out for another two months and decided to go to yet another new salon in May. This beautician noticed the interlocking in back of my hair and told me that the previous salon should of waited until I began locking before doing the interlock and that she should of used much less hair to do it, no surprise. She than began to continue my locs by simply using the palm roll, at this point.

In June I continued with the same beautician and she decided then to interloc all of my hair at this point. Last to date, I seen her just before July 4 and I told her that I still do not like how the back of my hair is, specifically, that last row where the original interloc had so much hair on each loc. She then wanted me to have her take out all my locs and start completely over from scratch. She said she that the parts that I have in my hair that the last girl did would not be showing when she do it, and my small bald spot I have in the middle of my hair from a hot comb burn I experienced over 10 years ago, she can create the locs to cover it.

I am confused what to do. My sister is telling me that I should just go to a certified Loctician. Can you help me with my decision? I live in the Atlanta area, do you know of any good Locticians in that area? How do I know if a person is truly a certified Loctician? If I should have my hair taken out and done completely over again, I want it done by the right person that will do it properly and maintain properly. I do not like having my hair done constantly, nor getting under a dryer, so I think Interlocking may be better for me, but I also read that if not done properly it can lead to baldness. This is why I need your expertise in this area.

I also believe that I am not maintaining my locs properly, I use coconut oil and shea butter and rub both on my palms then rub them in my hair twice a week. I think I kind of mess my locs up by rubbing so briskly and my new growth begins to look untidy too from it. I thought of just using a spray bottle with oils and some water, like I used to, this way I would not have to rub. Please tell me what to do. Thanks so much for your help and assistance.

Sorry to hear that you’re having such a bad experience with an otherwise simplistic journey. I have recommendations in the ATL area but they’re professionals and not “cheap”
So if you’re ready to invest in your hair feel free to send me an email and I can give you their information

Also you should NEVER put shea butter in your locs! Ever!

Thank you Jocelyn for your reply about my locs. Yes, I am very much interested in finding a reputable Loctician in my area. I actually live in Snellville Ga, however, I can easily commute to Atlanta which is about 30 minutes away. If I can have my hair done before the start of school next week, that will be great. Thanks again.

Hello Jocelyn,

I have been enjoying both your YouTube channel and this website. I’m learning a lot!

My baby locs are almost a month old, and because I’m so active I think interlocking will suit me. I have two questions.

I started my locs with two-strand twists. How soon can I start interlocking?

And secondly, I have seen that one can use a 2, 3 or even 4 point turn while interlocking. Is it possible to just snake the loc through its root once and leave it be? Or will that unravel?

Thank you!

I enjoyed this article my husband for years has been asking me to dread my hair. However I didn’t necessarily like the look of traditional dreads then I came across the sisterlocks and I love them. Yet, that price is something to deal with! My appearance interlocking seems to have the same look at Sisterlocks, is there a difference?

My hair is interlocked and it only takes 1 1/2 hours- 2 hours for my appointment. That includes washing, maintenance, and styling… I couldn’t sit for 3-4 hours!

You said the locs can be combed out? I thought they were permanent and had to be cut off! I want locs but didn’t get them because I was afraid that if I wanted change, I’d have to cut my hair off?
Thanks for the information!

Yes, you can comb out locs… I’ve personally done so twice. First set I combed out my Sisterlocks after two years, second set were traditional locs after 3 years…

What would u say is better interlocking or jamaican lime gel twisting

I presently have back length virgin hair (when stretched). My hair is thick and a 4c type, I tend to twist it easily and it stays together. Im going for locks in few days cos I don’t have the time anymore to wash my hair let alone plait it myself. I’ve always plait my own hair. I’m I better off with palm rolling or interlocks?

I do want medium sized locks but also want it thick and full, I don’t want any risk of thinning etc.
I’ve checked all the methods but unsure if my hair can stay in place with palm rolling or rather if it will give me the type of result I want as opposed to interlocks?

I maintain my boyfriend locs for him. I think interlocking will help his hair a lot. He sweats out his retwist very frequently do to his job and i do his hair about every one to two months. I have heard different things on interlocking on dry or wet hair. Can you tell me if it makes a difference if i interlock his hair wet vs. doing it dry?

This article was so informative and helpful. Thanks for shating this with us..
I hope I can make it to the big celebration 6/25…

This article is really helpful, I will be loc’d for a month by 2nd April. I started with comb coils but I’m not really sure if I want to continue with palm rolling. Will I be able to comb out my locs later on if I interloc?

Hello

I was going to start locs with two strand twist My hair dresser said I don’t need to start with two strand twist, I shld interlock instead, as my hair is ok, what does this mean, thought both ways were ok to start, my hair is about 7inc long while twisted, semi thick back and to, thinner at sides

I’m bout to start mine and don’t really know what to do or what to get because I want them small and able to still see my perfect scalp and I don’t want them looking crappy how often should I get it done and what should I get

I Like How You Break it Down.Thank You.

I’m glad it was helpful! Thank you for reading and commenting.

I have a question. What about starting your locs by braiding ? Is it possible to do so? Is there a disadvantage to this?

I started my locs with 2 strand twist. After 1 month I decided to interlock because my hair is so soft. 10 days after my 1st interlock/2nd wash I noticed a lot of me locs had almost 3/4 inch of new growth. My hair does not grow that fast. Is this an indication of unraveling? Should I interlock them now or wait until 6/8 weeks? I’m afraid of thinning my roots and causing issues before my hair evens locs.

I am going to assume that you’re interlocking your hair yourself… What happened is known as slippage and it is very common when you start locs with twists then try switch to interlocking. Hopefully, you are aware that interlocking will produce a thinner loc than what you see with your hair in the twists, so when looking at your roots they will appear to be “thin”, but they (hopefully) will not be thin to the point of breaking off.

Less than an inch of nugrowth is no cause to do another interlocking session right now, wait the 6 weeks and then correct the issue, but make sure that your tension is correct.

If you need help with DIY interlocking, I would highly recommend the “Interlocking Fundamentals” workshop for you.

Hello my hair is very soft. Im 8wks into my locs. I started my locs with plaits. I’ve interlocked once. I was wondering if I can change not to palm rolling but simply put some locking gel on my nugrowth and just twist until they lock up.. My ends are already budding

I started palm rolling couple months ago. Last weekend my friend interlocked my hair. Is there a way to switch back to palm rolling?

My dread is interlock but only last for one week or two week .am worried ,is there anything to do

I’m about to begin my loc journey and I need help with the best method to start with. Although my hair dresser advised two strand twist, but am yet to fully understand how to maintain it and also will i be required to interlock my hair after the two strand twist cause my hair has breakage at the edges, and I want to good starting locs.

Blessings! I’ve been interlock for 5 months now and my lifestyle is very active, so my loctician advised me to interlock . I have very thick and tight coils (4 a or c ) . I wash and oil once a week . I worry about thinning also because of the horror stories of interlocking. My loctician uses the two -point rotation. I read in comments that locs eventually grow to be thin , but that isn’t what I want . I want them to be thick . Their thick now but wondering would the grow to be thin ? I started them medium. Can I semi freeform with interlocking 3x a year and still have healthy locs ? Thanks much ! Blessings!

How do I stop my edges from breaking with interlocks?

Start my locs journey in June2019. I’m doing a lot of research so that my hair stay healthy. My hair is soft and fine. My stylist started my locs. When I went back after 3 months she started the palm rolling. I think this is best for my hair because my hair actually stayed lock even when I sweat in my hair. However my edges need more training. Interlocking might be the answer but not sure don’t want any pulling of my fine hair. Thanks for your knowledge in this matter…

Hi Jocelyn – Thanks for this informative article. I’ve been getting my hair palm rolled for 13 years because I heard that interlocking was damaging to one’s locs. I have seen the light! This is just what I need. I fit all the criteria For interlocking. Thank you again.

Great explanation!! I was debating on switching to interlocking but I’ve had my love for almost 3 years and they’re far from thin. Palm rolling it is lol.

Glad I could help, good teamwork!

Thank you sooo much for this information. It was so help, I’m thinking about getting locs and been trying to read all the information I can about how and what I should do. Thanks sooo much!!!

Thank you for reading! Best of luck on your upcoming loc journey!

Will they thicken up over time?

I have 4 C hair and I am ready to start my loc journey. I have thought about the two strand twist but someone told me it was a waste of time. I also was interested in coils or interlocking I’m yrying to see what’s the best for my hair because my edges have experienced some thinning.

Hi! This really clears up a lot of my questions; thanks for the clarity! I wanted to ask if there’s anything on the site that I should peruse if I wanted to know more about which method is best for my hair type??

I’m glad you found clarity with the article! I would not necessarily categorize locs by hair type, they are more dependent on your type of lifestyle. Check out the “7 Methods to Start Locs: Drawbacks & What to Expect” for more information about the different methods.

Hello! Thanks for the great info. I’m about 2.5 months into my journey, I started with 2 strand twists. A lot of them are starting to bud and lock which is making me very happy, I chose to start interlocking recently, however I noticed that the interlocked hair is super thin, I was just wondering if this is going to thicken up a bit. I know it won’t be the size as the twists or as thick as it would with palm rolling, I just want it to thicken up SOME at least. I have thick 4c hair and 122 locs. Thank you!

I just got locs and as my loctician was doing then I realised he used the interlock method. I really wanted slightly thicker locs but my hair looks dense but light when touched so I guess that’s why he did them this way. I was worried about the consequences of this method but I think I can make this work. Great article, I’m really informed now.

Love the blog. I’m new to the loc community. Have you heard of Starter loc method to interlock at the roots and instant loc the ends? With having those locs how often can I was My hair and what to wash with? Thanks

That’s possible. You should wash your hair as often as you want, but do not wait longer than 3-4 weeks. And you should always use a clarifying shampoo at minimum. I share more specific product recommendations in the “Shampoo & Deep Cleansing Guide“.

I started out this year (February) with a “professional” install of sisterlocs on my 9-12inch 3C hair. They were certified, but the results had me questioning their ability. I faced several challenges through the install (slippage, bunching between sessions) as well as an asymmetric grid; despite following all instructions to the letter. This, along with the significant sum spent, and a refusal to teach me any self-care led me to leave the loctician.

I love this style but need to learn (along with my husband) how to care for it successfully on my own, and am more than happy to pay appropriately to learn from an experienced professional.

My key questions are as follows:
– Is interlocking, given my hair type and the loc sizes ever going to be a successful mid-maintenance hairstyle for me?
– Should I increase my loc size? Switch to palm rolling?
– What does appropriate regular retightening look like?
How do I do common “repairs”?

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Peace Mae,

Thanks fir this article! I played a big part in my decision to interlock. Last night I started my interlock journey! My stylist and I didn’t realize how much my hair had grown. I just went natural 3 years ago and had been doing coils/ two strand twists. I know it’s the beginning but I feel excited already!

Peace Crystal,

The beginning of a natural journey is an exciting time, happy to hear the article assisted with your decision. Thank you for your support

I’m on my third set of locs – I started one set with a professional, but took them down because I wasn’t quite ready, plus my loctician moved away. The second set I started with extensions, and kept them in for a couple of years. I combed them out and my hair underneath the loc extension (I used the wrap method) had NOT loced. I kept my bushy fro for a few weeks, then remembered how much I didn’t like having to set / twist / maintain my hair a couple of times a week to keep it looking the way I wanted. I started another set of locs with coils, then just maintained the coils with palm rolling.

I’m now interlocking, because my loose curl in the front will NOT stay twisted, and I don’t like the extremely fuzzy look. I work in corporate America while I’m building a business of my own, so my natural frizz is frowned upon. I don’t interloc unless I’ve got at least 2 inches of new growth, and palm roll in between. Tools are essential – I’ve found really good interlock tools (no latchhook for me!) and I love them.

Thanks for this article – I’m going to keep doing what works for me and my hair, and I thank you so much for the information!

Thank you for the insights on both techniques. I wore sisterlocs for 5 years because my curly #4c just would not love. I cut them all off two years ago yearning to start traditional pics using palm rolling. Had my grid done, then covid lockdown happen. I never went back and was only able to grow my locs by interlocking. Now I would like to begin palm rolling. I am patient, can you help me start?

Sure! I invite you to join the Loc Goals Club so that I can support you along your DIY loc journey!

Thanks for this article for it has given me the answers to the questions on my mind. I’m about to join the Loc community

I want to lock my hair but I’m trying to decide what type of locks would be the best for my type of hair

Good morning, I have been completely natural for over 5 years,, I have been wanting to get locs for a while now, what would be the best way to start, rolling or interlocking? My hair is shoulder lengths, not thick and curls when wet, I loved the article and plan on following you for more info

Hello,

I love your website I find it very helpful. I have a question. I find that when I wait 3 months to interlock, I tend to get this bulge or bubble between the last interlock and the new interlock. Is it because I’ve waited too long to interlock? Thanks in advance for replying.

Peace Diane! I appreciate you reading my blog and adding me into your journey! And yes you are correct, the short answer is because it has been too long been grooming sessions which causes that bulging.

Hello again Jocelyn,

Thank you so much for responding to my comment and concern. Take care.

I started my dreads March of 2021 and it’s close to my 1 year mark and I chose the interlocking method to use because I always heard it’s great with any hair type and my loctician does a great job sometimes my hair fuzzes out after a few weeks whst can I do to stop this??

Happy almost first locversary! Frizz is apart of the process and definitely something to embrace vs get rid of. If you’re able, come to the Q&A With a Loctician live and we can discuss more about what the frizz means!

I really like two strand I know it will loc but I would like to keep that two strand look will interlocking help me keep this look

you can start with two strands, but start smaller than what you initially see so that as the locs mature they will end up that size when you twists two (mature) locs together.
