These are designed for the unique demands of heavy, abundant hair: braids, locks, dreads, and sisterlocks, or even just masses of glorious thick hair! These can bundle and lift your most awesome hair!
Scupt and adorn your hair with these loc ties! These loc ties are Spellstone designs by Alex Morgan, and are hand carved of domestic water buffalo horn.
Each amber loc tie is uniquely streaked with color because it is made of natural red water buffalo horn. No two are identical, because the water buffaloes grew them that way! The black horn ties are glossy black, from black water buffaloes.
The loc ties are about 4 1/2" wide, and arch about 1 1/2" high, about depending on design. They come with a long elastic cord that you can adjust to exactly fit your locks. Each one has a blessing implicit in the design.

|Water buffaloes are domestic farm animals across Asia. They are loved as a working member of the family and valued as a tractor or family car. Water buffalos are never killed or harmed to just harvest their horns. When a farmer's water buffalo dies at the end of a long and productive life, all parts, including the horns, are harvested and put to good use so nothing is ever wasted.|
