Show & Tell: Realistic Crochet Faux Locs

Finally, here’s the tutorial out about my Faux Locs Crochet Braids. This served as a great protective style for my natural hair! I absolutely loved how natural they looked when I had them installed. Most people couldn’t tell that they were crochet braids! I used 6 packs of Janet Collection Mambo Faux Locs Crochet Braids in 18 inch and color 1B.

Products Used:

  • Crochet Hook
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Janet Collection Synthetic Hair Crochet Braids 2X Havana Mambo Faux Locs 18″ in 1B (I used 6 1/2 packs)

  1. Just in time!! I was thinking of either getting crochet faux locs or a vixen sew-in. I think I’m going with the locs so I won’t have to put much heat on my hair.. especially in the summer and since I just dyed it jet black. Thanks for the post!

  2. So I saw this post awhile back and decided to do this style. I’ve been rocking these faux locs for two months now and I love it! They have held up so very well and I’ve received tons of compliments. I’m about to take them out next weekend but I would definitely do this style again. Thanks for posting!!

  3. I just got my faux locs done on yesterday and I love them!!! Thanks for the tip on the brand of hair and for sharing!!! I have the Jane Collection, but I got the color 350 or lighter brown in the hair. Its not heavy. Thanks again!!!

  4. I had this done with 6 packs today. Lovely and beautiful. You inspired me to have them done. One question though – how do you stop the tips from unraveling? Thanks.

  5. I just got these in the 14 inch for fall! This is my first time with crochet locs and I am absolutely clueless on how to style it! How did you do the style you have in the video? Do you also have any other ideas for how to style?
