Do Soft Locs Protect Your Hair?

Updated: May 23, 2023

First let’s define the difference between soft locs and faux locs. Faux locs are any form of braids that are made from synthetic hair, instead of just using a person’s natural strands. The locs are braided or crochet into one’s regular hair.

Soft locs, also known as butterfly locs, are a distinct style of faux braids. Pre-formed crochet locs are crocheted into your natural locs. This wrapping technique is what helps the soft locs maintain their smooth flexibility. Once the crocheted locs are put in, each loc is wrapped with a hair extension.

About Soft Locs

Soft locs protect your natural hair because they encompass the strands in the locs. This protects it from heat, dryness, and breakage. These locs don’t cause as much tension on your head because they are more agile than typical faux locs.

The fibers used for soft locs are also lighter weight than regular faux locs. Using light-weight fibers prevents hair breakage and scalp damage.

Our Products

Our Nu Locs and Butterfly Locs are perfect for soft braids. We love using the spring twist braiding method because they mimic the look at natural hair and are easy to maintain.
