You can always finger detangle its your choice, For deep conditioning when applying please make sure to apply from root to the end of the hair and let it stay for a hour (minimum) or overnight (maximum). Don’t own a deep conditioner? Use one of my favourites Here. The oil is for more moisture after being covered up so long and the leave-in is for after you wash out the deep conditioner to lock in moisture.

Types of Locs 

We all have that protective style  that we go to every holiday I personally call that faux locs for me. I live for Faux locs because well I did it in the past for a living… Now alot of you might wondering what I’m talking about with Types of Locs? Well there’s numerous types see list below


Marley Locs – This type of locs is pretty much everyone’s favorite because it looks more realistic than any other its used with Hair. With the Marley locs all you need is regular expression braid below and marley hair on top. This takes about 6-8 hours depending on how long you want it or how fast your hair stylist can do it.

Yarn Locs – Yarn locs is my favorite because I don’t have to deal with all that hair mess I can just buy a roll of yarn or some person use wool. It really doesn’t matter which is being used its just the results I look out for… The yarn locs is more light weight than any other. This will take the same time has Marley locs approximately 6 -8 hours

Goddess Locs – The Goddess locs is where you see all the ladies wearing these days because they think its new but its been out for years. The hair beneath is weave mixed with Marley hair on top.. The goddess takes about 4 hours its a little easy to install mainly because it doesn’t need much fire and not a lot of hair.

  • Goddess Yarn locs is also a thing

Crochet Fauxlocs – Personally hate but people become real fan of it mainly because it doesn’t take more than 2 hours to install. The Crochet Locs comes ready made just to attach to your braids or corn rows.
