HISTORY

The Loc Soc was created out of necessity in 1995 while working in my fashion design studio, as a means of protecting my locks from dust as well as the hazards inherent in an environment with heavy machinery.  Although originally created as a protective garment, it was soon apparent that the LOC SOC could serve multiple purposes. I realized that the LOC SOC was the perfect night cap to keep all of the locks together thus eliminating the likelihood of rolling over and pulling on them which causes stress and damage. 

Also, the LOC SOC alleviated the concern of waking up and having to remove lint that seemed to magically find its way into the locks.  The LOC SOC worked wonderfully while taking a shower, and also helped to keep my locks out of my plate while eating.  The possibilities for the LOC SOC seemed endless and soon after creating  the LOC SOC, I decided to use them as accessory items in a fashion show for a model that had locks, and the rest as they say was history.  At the fashion show, the response was tremendous and the use of the LOC SOC to make a fashion statement was realized.  We immediately began to experiment with different colors and fabrics and now the LOC SOC is available in hundreds of 500 colors and prints.

The standard Loc Soc is made of a Lycra (Knit) fabric, is 16 inches long and fits comfortably on the head of most adults.  We are continually trying to improve the Loc Soc and have begun to experiment with a plethora of fabrics.  Everything from stretch denim to Loc Soc's with leather on them.  The evolution of the Loc Soc is never ending so look for the new and exciting variations to come.  And remember, with the Loc Soc as a part of your daily wardrobe, you are sure to turn heads.
