I’ve never quite been the protective hairstyle believer, and have only had my hair braided twice before. But this year, I decided to give faux locs a try, and I quite liked the experience.
Faux locs are a great protective style that allows you to change up your look and give your natural hair a break. And, from my experience, they’re better than box braids.
Faux locs are meant to bear a resemblance to real locs or dreadlocks. They’re often created using human hair, yarn, or synthetic braiding hair. The hair is wrapped tightly around braids or twists in a downward motion to resemble real locs.
When deciding on whether to use yarn or synthetic braiding hair, keep in mind that the type of hair or material used will affect the texture and appearance of your faux locs.
