Soft Locs

Bored of having a passive lifestyle? Do you want a hairstyle that is very low maintenance? Do you actually miss feeling these criss-cross stitches but with SOFTER braids? Well then, don't wait any longer to know about the soft locs service that Feminine Attractions offers in Houston!

Soft locs are normally very long at 30 to 36 inches. They are perfect for clients who love to have an active lifestyle. The term is used to describe locs that are soft, as they are pre-made crochet faux locs used with wrapping hair to achieve the style. Then, the crochet locs are unraveled and used to wrap around your natural hair, which results in having a smoother soft loc look!

Soft locs are really great for protective styling because they are low maintenance. You don't need to constantly style your natural hair as long as you have these locs in. They also require low manipulation, and this has to do with the growth of your hair and its length retention because your hair will be left alone. Adding to this, when installing these locs, your hair will be protected from heat and breakage from combing and brushing. On the other hand, soft locs can cause tension at the root of your hair, but that isn't a big deal as long as you're working with your hairstylist and deciding on a size and length of extensions that won't break off your hair! So, if you want to braid a soft loc right away and on the spot, then here are the techniques shared by our professional hairstylists! At first, our stylist would always start by cleansing the hair, because doing so means that you can have the braid in for so much longer since you might not need to wash your braid soon, so your natural hair needs to be moisturized and cleansed very well. Then, our hairstylist would use the crochet needle to crochet the loc into the braid, and wrap below the loop and not on the root to avoid tension to the scalp. The stylist will then start on wrapping, once you will have a flat foundation at the base, the hair crochet will be grabbed through and wrapped until your hair is covered completely. Once the length is achieved, your hair will be sealed with a lighter and there it is!! You are ready to sway with your soft locs!

Soft Locs

Now, after finishing this part and installing the smooth soft locs. Our qualified hairstylists will never let you leave before making sure that you know exactly how to take care of your twisted braids. As it is said, it is a very low maintenance protective style. Our stylists will help you maintain your soft locs with a few easy steps. Cleanse them by rinsing the sculp once every two weeks with solution products to keep your sculp's pH balanced. You can hydrate the hair beneath by applying oil to the scalp that will seal in moisture and nourish new growth when the locs start to weigh on your roots. You need to use a satin bonnet at night to prevent tangling to your crochet locs. It is also recommended to finger detangle your locs to prevent them from sticking together. You can also use scissors to cut any stray hair and get to put them back together.

Soft Locs

As we have mentioned, locs require a lot of attention and care to properly maintain them and keep your hair healthy.

01.Cover your hair in the shower: use a cloth and showercap to cover your hair when you shower to make your twists last longer. Avoid using an all plastic cap because it will cause your hair to curl up from the steam in the showercap. Washing your hair frequently means that you will have to retwist your hair more often. To maintain your locs for as long as possible, avoid hot showers to avoid exposing your hair to steam, and get a hair bonnet or silk scarf to cover your head beneath a showercap.
02.Always use a hair scarf when you go to bed: tie your hair with a scarf during the night or simply use a bonnet to protect your hair.
03.Always make sure your hair is completely dry: take your time drying your hair. You should first dry the back of your head and the outer layers of your locs. To make sure your hair is completely dry, squeeze your locs.
04.Cover your hair from the rain: naturally curly hair tends to retwist when exposed to water, including rainwater. Simply take an umbrella with you and cover your head using a silk scarf to protect your hair.
05.Moisturize: use gels and creams to keep your hair healthy and vitalized.
