Some of the key pros of faux locs include:
Low Maintenance: Unlike traditional locs, faux locs are low maintenance, which means you can spend less time and money on hair care. This is a convenient option for busy individuals.
Versatility: Faux locs can be styled in many different ways, allowing you to switch up your look easily. From braids to twists, there are many styles you can achieve with faux locs. With a wide range of styles, colors and lengths to choose from, faux locs can be easily customized to match any outfit or occasion.
Protective Style: Faux locs provide a protective barrier for your natural hair, which can help prevent breakage and promote growth. They can help protect your natural hair from harsh weather conditions, chemicals, and heat damage.
Longevity: Faux locs can last anywhere from 2 to 4 months, which is longer than most protective styles. This makes it a great option for those who want a long-lasting hairstyle without the commitment of permanent locs.
Low Damage: Faux locs are less damaging to your hair compared to other extensions and braids, making it a great option for those who want to maintain healthy hair.
Creative expression: Whether you want to make a bold fashion statement or keep it simple and chic, faux locs offer a unique way to express your personal style.
No commitment: With faux locs, you have the freedom to switch up your style or return to your natural hair whenever you like, without any long-term commitment.
Hair growth: By protecting the natural hair, faux locs can promote hair growth and reduce the risk of damage.
The cons of faux locs include:
Styling time: Faux locs can take several hours to install, which can be a significant time investment for those who are busy.
Discomfort: Some people may experience itching, scratching, headaches, and discomfort when wearing faux locs, especially if they are not properly installed. At Tendrils and Twigs, we don't braid tight and we have products that alleviate itching.
Removal: Removing faux locs on your own can be a challenge, cause damage, and it is very possible to cut your own hair off during removal. At Tendrils and Twigs, we offer faux loc removal services.
Finding a stylist: Not all stylists are professional and skilled in creating beautiful and well-installed faux locs. It's important to do research and find a stylist who has experience and positive reviews to ensure a successful faux locs experience.
Care and Maintenance
Taking care of faux locs at home is important to ensure that they maintain their appearance and longevity. Here are some tips on how to care for faux locs:
Don't forget about your scalp: Keeping the scalp and hair moisturized will help prevent tangles, matting and dryness. Use a light oil or mist on a leave-in conditioner to hydrate your faux locs.
Handle with care: When detangling the curls of your faux locs, handle them gently to avoid unraveling or damaging the hair. Use a wide-tooth comb or your fingers to detangle any knots, and always start from the ends and work your way up.
Protect your locs: To keep your faux locs looking their best, try to avoid sleeping on rough surfaces, such as cotton pillowcases, which can cause matting and tangling. Instead, use a satin or silk pillowcase or wrap your hair in a satin or silk scarf to protect it while you sleep.
Shampoo carefully: When shampooing your faux locs, use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo, and avoid rubbing the hair too vigorously. Rinse thoroughly to remove all shampoo and conditioner, and let your locs air dry or gently blot with a towel. We recommend diluting the shampoo in a bottle with water first instead of applying it concentrated onto the hair.
By following these tips, you can help extend the life of your faux locs and keep them looking fabulous!
Faux locs are a great investment considering the time of wear and ease of styling. When broken down, the average cost is $100-$150 per month. Some spend that much on hair products alone! Lets explore some pricing
