After getting a lot of nice compliments on my crochet braids, I decided to push myself a bit further and when a friend mentioned faux locs, I was like why not? However, my eagerness and enthusiasm made me overlook some important things; like time! With our combined efforts, it took us over 8 hours to finish this hair! For someone like me, that is a lot of time to spend and it was exhausting. In the future, I’d rather do this over the weekend and take my time with it.
What We Used
5 Packs of Supreme Kinky Hair (Black and Brown)
2 Packs of Noble Kinky Hair (Gold and Black)
Spray Bottle containing water and vitale leave-in conditioner
This style is also really easy to do if you put your mind to it, I’ll try to explain the steps as best I can, I used the invisible roots method.
1.) Part a small section of hair and divide that section into two
2.) Take a piece or 2 of kinky hair (depending on how thick you want the locs to be) and place it in the middle of the divided section
3.) Braid your own hair over the kinky hair lying in the middle
4.) Braid the kinky with your braided hair to whatever length you’d like it to be
5.) Take a piece of kinky hair and start wrapping over the braided hair
6.) Pass the lighter(ot any other fire source) over the tip of the wrapped hair to seal it.
I sprayed each section generously, sealed with shea butter and used the castor oil on the roots. The locs were really long, almost waist length and although it was tiring, I was pretty proud of the finished work and she has been getting nice compliments, someone even offered to pay to have hers done, Yay !(not happening ).
