The Art of the Retwist


Palm rolling is one of the most widely used retwisting techniques, but there are various other methods that I can advise on. I will choose the best technique based on your hair type and style. Some of my clients in Thornton Heath and the surrounding areas find they have a particular favourite and stick to it, but the choice is yours! Below I’ve provided some valuable information about the popular palm rolling method. Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Palm Rolling


The palm rolling technique involves twisting the hair between the palms of your hands into a circular structure, starting from the tip and working up towards the roots. It helps to tighten and compress knots in locs as well as helping to lock-in loose hair on the surface of the dread. This retwisting technique is best used for traditional and semi freeform locs.


The main advantages for palm rolling include:


• Fast and effective maintenance that can often be carried out in under an hour

• Helps to compress and tighten knots in your locs and remove frizz

• Preventative maintenance for stopping lumps and clumps from appearing


Why Use a Loctician for Retwisting?


Although some men and women may try palm rolling and retwisting at home, it is best performed by a professional loctician. If you are not trained in the right techniques, such as which angles to roll to prevent unravelling or where to place clips for the best results, you can cause irreversible damage to your locs. My retwist services will ensure your locs are well-maintained and hold for longer.


The top benefits of using my services:


• The promotion of healthy and well-maintained locs

• Flexible wash, retwist and style appointments available

• Natural Jamaican Castor Oil offered to condition hair and scalp

• Competitive prices and card payments accepted


Most of my clients visit my salon in Thornton Heath for retwists every 4 to 6 weeks to keep their locs in good condition. Especially if you are new to loc styles, it is best for an experienced loctician to guide you through the maintenance process to achieve long-lasting results. Carrying out retwists yourself can also become tiring and tedious, so why not come in and relax at my comfortable salon instead, whilst I do it for you!


I strive to provide same-day appointments, but pre-booking is highly recommended.
