What is Interlocking/Latch Hooking/Root Flipping?

Interlocking is a maintenance method which involves flipping the dreadlock through the root in order to tighten the root.

This method is most effective with thin African American dreadlocks and is discouraged for all other hair types because it creates more of a braid than a dreadlock and it also makes the dreadlock weak for certain hair types. You can read our indepth article on Interlocking Dreads HERE.
