Goddess Faux Locs

55 Creative Ideas with Goddess Faux Locs

Goddess faux locs are one of the protective styles that women around the world love to wear.

Some prefer wearing their locs during hot summer months. It is not a surprise. Their bohemian vibes are perfect for beach parties and swimming in the sea. You don’t have to worry that your hair might be damaged – it will grow beneath while you always have your hairstyle done!

What Are Goddess Faux Locs?

First, let’s get the basics of goddess faux locs.

Traditionally locs are created with human hair. They are lighter and look more like authentic, natural locs. Faux locs, on the other hand, are made with synthetic hair and are a bit heavier. Usually, faux locs have a shiny, silkier look.

The difference between faux locs and goddess faux locs is that faux locs are sealed at the ends primarily by burning, and the goddess locs are not sealed, and they have open and often wavy ends.
