Faux locs are the perfect protective style, for adults and children. The way to achieve this look is different for everyone, which makes it ideal because you don’t have to follow a specific set of guidelines. The idea behind faux locs are simple, but it takes time and efforts. Especially, if you are doing it on a child’s hair which can be testy. For most, you’d need infinite patience in order to get it done.
To achieve faux locs on adult, you can use synthetic hair for a nice and smooth look. At first, you might want to use faux locs to find out whether permanent locs will work for you or not. It’s a great way to begin your natural loc journey.
I really like this style. Though it takes time and effort, the result is well worth it. I’m glad to post this detailed tutorial here for anyone who’s trying to achieve the same thing.
Faux Locs Protective Styling on Children:
To say this little girl and her hairstyle is beautiful is an understatement. When you look at the amazing result, I’m sure, you will come to the same conclusion. Most kids aren’t as well behave like this cute little girl on the video. These photos are from Chocolatehairvanillacare.com. I absolutely love the creativity over there, and I get a lot of natural hair care tips for my daughter’s hair from there as well.
As parents, you have to weight the pros vs. cons. For me, the pros far out weight the cons in doing this style. I do my daughter’s hair each week; by doing this style, I can go longer without touching her hair. Plus, by doing it with yarn it helps from having to use synthetics on your child’s hair. Synthetic hair can cause hair to stress.
