Butterfly Locs, Everything You Need To Know
The distressed butterfly locs is the new very similar style of the protective style stapled Loc. This Loc is a different type than distressed due to its unique signature of curly style in the hair that distinguished it, by the way, distressed Loc is a bohemian cousin of faux loc that becomes famous a few years ago.
Dependence on the types of Hair:
Now to make a loc given is depend on the natural hairs of the person by which it can be decided that it can be the loc or not and another mystery which should be solved about the length of loc if that is longer than the natural loc or not. Water wave hair in roughly 6 to 8 packs in 22 to 28 inches that will make the new dashing look of hair in the shape of butterfly loc. Filler hair is the second necessary thing if the loc is longer than our original hair. If we want to give some length to the simply we should braid the mar lay hair with our natural hair it’s another method to increase the length of our hair. If someone wants her hair bulky then the stylist makes the 40 to 50 loc.
How to make the Butterfly locs?
There are many methods to make this type of loc but firstly the most used method is hair soaking in apple cider vinegar rinse divided into two parts; one in the water suffices and another is vinegar. Firstly it is soaked and then it is rinsed thoroughly. If someone has a sensitive scalp in the head it avoids itching.
Using a Braid and Wrap Technique:
Getting Butterfly Locs can be accomplished in a variety of ways, depending on your skill level, patience, and available time. The beauty of this hairstyle is that it doesn’t require you to be an expert braider in order to achieve a stunning look. Longer lengths may require more time, but most people can complete this style in 3-6 hours.
Here are some steps to make the butterfly loc by using the braid and wrap technique.
Begin by plaiting or braiding your hair:
Braid or twist your hair in a parting pattern of your choice. To keep the parts in order, apply Shine and Jam or another type of edge control. It’s up to you whether or not you want to use rubber bands.
Prepare your Water Wave hairs:
You can do this step as you go, or you can do it all at once. Simply separate two strands of water wave hair. The finished product should be light and fluffy but still, hold together well.
Make a base for your braid out of the Water Wave hair:
Make a slit in your braid near your scalp with the crochet needle. Close the needle’s hook and pull the completely separate water wave hair through it only halfway. About three-quarters of the water wave hair should be on one side before you begin wrapping. If you’ve ever done a faux loc, you’ll recognize this as the beginning of the box braid extension that goes underneath the faux loc.
Wrapping butterfly locs:
Now that you’ve got the shorter strand of water wave hair in your grasp, you can use your braid to secure it. The longer piece of water wave hair can then be used to wrap the braid and the shorter piece that is placed against it. For best results, wrap the root 5-6 times around the scalp. (You’ll be able to maintain a clean look for longer if you do this.) But be careful not to overstrain yourself. To make loops as you wrap, use the thumb technique.
Butterfly Locs are great because they allow you to be a little sloppy. The beauty of a loc lies in its loops and fuzziness, not in its tightness or control. Be careless as you wrap the hair. The messier these loc get, the better they look as they get older, so don’t be afraid to let them get a little frizzy.
The Thumbs-Up Method:
You can loosely wrap a portion of the water wave hair around your thumb before continuing to wrap it off two or three times. This will create distinctive loops on the loc.
Apply the Finishing Touches:
Close the butterfly locs and wrap the ends once you’ve reached the desired length. With your finger at the end of the braid, create a small loop. Then, continue wrapping your remaining hair back up the braid until you have no more water wave hair to work with. If you need a little extra hold while wrapping the final few millimeters, consider using nail glue. The loop is critical because it serves as both a decorative cap to your loc and a safety net to keep it in place. Burning the ends is not acceptable.
The stylist makes some new look of butterfly locs for the growth of the hair.
