When looking for a long-term protective hairstyle, faux locs are one of the best ways to look at the traditional locs without the time commitment. If you want to try faux locs, you might fall into the two distinct camps. Some might be looking for something new and or different, while others might really want real locs but want to see how they will look and feel.
You can either install them on individual braids or twist using yarn to twist or braid it into your hair, then wrap it up with faux hair. Or use the crochet method to install already made faux locs.
This video features the latter, as you will see. It is a simple, easy faux locs tutorial for any beginner to follow along. We have other video tutorials on the site that will assist you if you find this challenging.
