Have you ever considered trying out Bohemian goddess locs? The Bohemian goddess locs hairstyle is a variation of traditional locs, with added curly or wavy extensions for a more textured and voluminous look.
It’s a versatile style that can be worn in various lengths and colors, making it perfect for those who want to switch up their look without sacrificing their natural hair.
Let’s explore the beauty of Bohemian Goddess locs on Black women. We’ll discuss the different styles, how to care for your faux or real locs, and how to accessorize them to enhance your look.
Why Should I Choose Bohemian Goddess Locs as a Protective Style?
Bohemian goddess locs are a great protective hairstyle because they are a low-maintenance and versatile option that can protect your natural hair from damage caused by styling and environmental factors.
How Long Can I Keep Bohemian Goddess Locs in?
The length of time you can keep these locs in depends on various factors, such as the quality of the hair extensions used, what you do on a day-to-day, and your hair growth rate.
Typically, these locs can last for 4 to 8 weeks with proper care. However, it is recommended that you take them out after 6 to 8 weeks to avoid potential damage to your natural hair.
What Type of Hair Do You Use For This Style?
Bohemian goddess locs are typically created using synthetic hair extensions that have a natural, curly texture. These synthetic types of hair are inexpensive and come in various colors and lengths to suit different preferences.
The style and method of Goddess locs you choose will determine the type of hair you’ll need. But regardless of the installation method you choose, you will need regular braiding hair extensions and passion twists or Marley twist hair packs. If you want something faster, you can use crotchet faux loc hair pieces.
Can you recommend a Butterfly Locs Tutorial?
If you’d rather do your own butterfly locs at home or you need to share a quick tutorial with your hair stylist, then I recommend this tutorial by DopeaxxPana where she shares three different methods you can choose from.
How Do I Keep the Bohemian Goddess Locs From Frizzing?
To moisturize your hair without causing frizz, I recommend moisturizing your hair with a leave-in conditioner spray so you don’t have to rub your hair to apply the product.
Are These Locs Safe to Get Wet?
Bohemian goddess locs are designed to withstand some exposure to water. However, excessive exposure to water or moisture can cause the extensions to become frizzy, which may cause your style to look old and unkept.
