Protecting your locs at night is very important, especially if you want to retain moisture and prevent lint from getting trapped in your locs. One of the most common ways to protect your hair at night is with a satin bonnet, but how many men with locs will wear a satin bonnet? Or how many women have really long locs that don't fit into a satin bonnet? The Loc Soc and/or Dreadsock seek to solve that problem.
I've had a Loc Soc since I first got my Sisterlocks in 2010, but as my Sisterlocks got longer, they started to stick out the Loc Soc and I noticed more and more lint in my hair. I also brought TB an XL Loc Soc and his locs always hung out of the bottom, leaving lint in his tips. Then, I stumbled upon the Dreadsock and ordered us both one immediately! TB has since given up completely on the Loc Soc and wears the Dreadsock, or Loc Bag as he calls it, faithfully. I still wear my Loc Soc because my Sisterlocks aren't quite long enough to fit comfortably in the Dreadsock (they clump in one area), but I'll grow into it.
