Butterfly locs are a variant of faux locs achieved using the crotchet. The wavy hair is looped into a braid using a crotchet needle and then loosely wrapped to give it a distressed/unraveled look. Butterfly locs are a beautiful, protective hairstyle that has become one of the hottest African ponytails.
One good thing about the hairdo is that you can use any type of wavy hair such as freetress water wave braiding hair to achieve the style, and when done, it can last for 2 to 3 months or more with proper maintenance in place. Read also: 5 Natural Ways To Detox Your Hair
Faux locs can be heavy and lead to breakage if moisture is not sealed in before the installation and maintained throughout their wear, so it is important that you moisturize and keep your hair hydrated for as long as you carry the style. The process takes long hours to complete but this largely depends on length, style, method and other factors.
