Soft locs and distressed locs are a hot hairstyle right now. And it is easy to see why. One reason is because they are absolutely gorgeous. Soft locs give you a bohemian vibe that is sexy and carefree. The second reason people love this style is because it is less tension on your natural hair than the traditional faux loc hairstyles. Third, you can achieve a similar look of faux locs in half the time and its a great protective style for natural hair.

What are soft and distressed faux locs?

If you are new to this hairstyle, let me explain what soft locs are. Unlike faux locs which are traditionally stiff and hard, these locs are soft. To do this hairstyle you use crochet locs and passion twist hair as wrapping hair. The wrapping hair is used to cover up your natural hair. The results are softer locs that give your movement and flexibility right away.

How do I install soft locs?

There are 3 main ways to install these beautiful locs.

  1. Unraveling the crochet loc and using it to wrap around the base of your natural hair. This results in a smoother soft loc look.
  2. Another option for the “distressed loc” look. Is to wrap the spring twist hair around the base of the crochet loc until you reach the end of your natural hair.
  3. Last option is to wrap passion twist around the crochet loc and your natural hair from roots to the ends of the loc. This will give you a more dramatic distressed faux loc look.
