My Faux Locs

 Hey there guys!

I'm coming here today to share with you my new protective style.

These are DIYs which were installed about a week go.
The method I used is Senegalese twists + wrapping said twists.
I used 4 packs of kanekalon for both the twists and the wrapping as they are quite big.
It took quite some time to execute this style. I started on Tuesday afternoon and ended on Wednesday afternoon with the obvious breaks for sleeping, eating, a little tv watching etc etc.


I had a tough time with it because the wrapping part was not as effortless as it seemed on the net and sealing the loc was no easy feat. I don't know if it's the hair I used or what, but I probably wouldn't do this style again. Plus I did them a little too tight... I'm hoping for the best come takedown time lol

I must say that I was in love with this style on the girls I saw prior to my install and I thought I would love having them, but I'm just like meh...

I like it in a bun and pretty much no other way lol. So that's how I've been rocking it.
I do like that they are low maintenance and not too heavy though.

As with my other long-term protective styles, I'm aiming for 3 weeks. I think I'll make it.

Ps. One of my inspirations...
