Ever wanted to try loc’s, but just not sure or afraid of the commitment? Don’t fret! You can always try temporary loc extensions on your natural hair. It serves as a great protective hairstyle, if you’re in need of a break, or just in the mood to try something new! Check out the video below for my step by step tutorial on how to achieve this look.

Before beginning:
Make sure you deep condition your hair before starting this protective hairstyle, also lock in the moisture with a sealant. (any oil of your choice)
What you will need:
(4) Packs of Kanekolon Hair (to braid)
(3-4) Packs of Marley Braid Hair (to wrap)
a lighter
and lots of patience!

How long does this hairstyle take?
Approximately 12-14 hours. I broke it up into 3 days and started out the locs into this ring-like pattern around my head and just wore it into a bun until I was done.
Night Routine:
Sleep with a satin pillowcase
or
wrap locs into a ponytail or bun and wrap with a scarf

Daily Maintenance:
Spritz roots with water for moisture
