All you need to know about Twist Faux loc braids with photos

This is a protective style that can last up to three months.  It is basically a two step process that consists of braiding or twisting the hair and then wrapping it. Because you must first twist/braid your extensions and THEN twist, the process will take longer than your typical extensions. It will also require more hair, thus making them both more expensive and heavy.

This style is a bit complex and you won't expect a naive stylist to professionally do it. It  can be accomplished using yarn, kanekalon braiding hair, or synthetic marley hair. The cheapest option is kanekalon hair. 
To install, first start with stretched hair.  You can either add braid or twist extensions. Please keep in mind that you don’t want to install them too tight. Because of the weight of the faux locs, it may cause unnecessary tension on the scalp. 

 After the twists/braids are installed, you can wrap each twist/braid with the hair. (This is the most time consuming step of the process.)  Upon completion of your locs,you can burn the ends to prevent them from unraveling.  The entire process can take 10+ hours.Because your hair is tucked underneath the locs, you should not have issues with your own hair frizzing. But since your hair is tucked away, you should take extra care to properly cleanse and moisturize your hair.
