Are you up to try butterfly locks? Do you want a DIY method for this style? If yes, then you are in the right place. I will tell you how to make your desired hair locs in 4 easy steps.
Different methods and ways are used to create butterfly locs. Instead of using pre-looped distressed crochet hair to put the locs into cornrows, use the procedures below for a more natural look.
Wash hair with good shampoo and conditioner
It may be tempting to skip a wash before you put your hair up for protection. However, remember that this is your last chance to care for and treat it before storing it away correctly.You’ll be astonished by the results when you remove your butterfly locs and discover that your hair is in terrific health. In the long term, it will be worthwhile.
Your natural hair should be braided.
Create single braids with your natural hair by dividing them into sections according to the size of your desired locs. Make sure that all of your parts are clean for a more defined look. A well-moisturized hairstyle is also essential. Hair Milk Nourishing & Conditioning Shine Pudding is a great product to use while braiding to keep your hair strong and healthy for the duration of the style. This is also the point at which you can add Marley braiding hair for more length and thickness if you have thinner or shorter hair (or want a fuller look).
Wrap your hair in a ponytail
Even if you’ve never done any braiding before, butterfly locs are relatively easy to make. There are two ways to insert water wave hair into a braid.
- You can use a crochet needle
- You can start braiding the water wave hair and then wrap it over your natural braid.
For a more natural-looking hairstyle, fluff the water wave hair with your fingers before starting. Begin by wrapping tightly and gradual. To achieve the unkempt look, continue wrapping your hair around your thumb in an irregular pattern as you go down the length of your hair. Create more loops for a fluffier butterfly locs hairstyle.
Seal the butterfly locs
Once you’ve achieved the length of your desired loc, you can seal the loc by wrapping the hair around your finger as if you were making a knot. Cut off the excess hair if necessary. You can continue to cover the hair around the loc secure it if it’s longer than your natural hair.
This style is effortless DIY. You don’t need to be an excellent hair stylist to do this job.
You can handle things even if you are binger level. What I say about this hairstyle is “it’s beautiful being messy”. It means this style is more relaxed when it’s messy.
