Faux locs. Tem­po­rary locs. Loc exten­sions. By now, you’ve seen them all over Insta­gram on some of hottest nat­ur­al hair per­son­al­i­ties. My first intro­duc­tion to this style was through Saleemah Cartwright founder of Hydrather­ma Nat­u­rals Hair Care who paved the way with a unique take on pro­tec­tive styling and ver­sa­til­i­ty. Before long,the locs look-alike took on numer­ous tech­niques, with var­i­ous mate­ri­als and hair types includ­ing mar­ley hair, yarn and bulk kanekelon braid hair.

The style can range from funky, glam­orous, to straight up hottttt. If you’re plan­ning on rock­ing faux locs this fall, here are a few style tuto­ri­als that will have peo­ple break­ing their necks to check you out.

I love locs. I swear they are my new obses­sion!!


I real­ly like done­do. She’s one of my favorite youtu­bers.

Me too it seems she stopped mak­ing videos though :(


I bought nat­u­ral­ly dyed, wool yarn — feels amaz­ing — from a local farm and am going with bold col­or.

YTer Shey “DIY Ombre Faux Locs” and a gor­geous pic of a woman with vivid blue locs and smokin’ cat eye make-up was enough to encour­age me.


I thought wool yarn would lock with your hair? Be care­ful if that’s not your inten­tion!


Faux locs give me life! I wore them back in April for two months and when I took them out I was shocked to find that my hair grew two inch­es. I have them in now and plan to keep them till Decem­ber to see how much inch­es I can grow. Bsl here I come!


I real­ly, real­ly wan­na try faux locs, but the time, man. THE TIME! You’re doing your head over twice. Put the braids in, then wrap them. Will some­one come and install them on my head over­nite while I sleep please? lol


What I do is twist my hair first, wear it like that for a week, and then do a Fri­day Sat­ur­day Sun­day install for the locs. No one can real­ly tell the dif­fer­ence if you start with the front

I am shine struck. I was wowed by Donedo’s locs. There’s so many things you can do with locs. It’s addict­ing.
