Frizz is an inevitable occurrence with faux locs, so a lot of women allow a small amount of frizz to make their locs look more natural. However, sleeping on your locs, manipulating them daily, and other things can cause a bunch of unwanted frizz.
To eliminate frizz, you can clip it with scissors, singe it off with a lighter, or roll it back into your hair with a locking hair gel like the ones from Jamaican Mango and Lime or Carol’s Daughter.
If your faux locs are crocheted in, burning an cutting are both a great method to rid your hair of frizz. If your locs were installed like singles, then you may want to be careful with burning or clipping so you don’t damage any of your real hair.
Keep in mind that it’s impossible to eliminate all frizz from your faux locs, so before you go crazy trying to snip every little fly away, remember that it’s okay to have a little bit of frizz on your locs.
Resealing the ends
Resealing the ends of your hair is something you’ll have to do at least every week if you plan on keeping your locs in for more than a month. Faux locs tend to stick to each other and they sometimes unravel after you pull them apart or run your fingers through it.
To keep your locs from unraveling completely, you’ll need to take a lighter and burn the ends, blow on the hair so it’s not too hot, and then roll it between your palms; this should keep it sealed for quite some time.
If you are not fond of using any type of fire on your hair, you can roll locking wax or gel on your ends or dip them into boiling water. If you’re going to use the boiling water method keep in mind that it won’t turn out like it should if you burned your ends immediately before.
Maintaining Edges and Baby Hair
Most women leave their edges and baby hair out when they get faux locs either so they can style them however they want, to avoid tension on their edges, or both. If you plan on leaving your edges out, make sure you have a great hair gel, edge control, and a toothbrush so you can style them how you normally would.
The only downside of using the product on your edges and baby hair is that product can get caught in the locs around your hairline and cause a lot of yucky buildup so be mindful of how much product you use and make sure you soften it with oil or wash it out afterward.
