Loc Extensions

The answers below really only apply to my specific technique. To inquire about having me style your hair fill out the form here and I’ll get back to you soon.

Do you style men’s hair?

Yes, I style men’s hair regularly.

What’s the difference between temporary and permanent?

The difference is with temporary locs I take measures to prevent your hair from locing with the extension hair, whereas with permanent locs I encourage your hair to loc with the extension hair.

What kind of hair do you use?

I use 100% human afro-kinky hair.

How long does it last?

With my method of loc extensions  it can last for as long as you want to keep them in. Some of my clients intend to keep it in for two years before taking it down, whereas other clients plan to take them out in four to six months. Both of these approaches will be successful. They are designed to last forever if you so chose.

How often can I wash my locs?

You can wash whenever the mood strikes you. I like to refer to locs as a zero maintenance hair style, all of the hard work is done by me and all of the enjoyment is done by you.

How long does it take?

It varies depending on the length that you chose but it is an all-day process.

How long does my hair need to be for locs

Ideally your hair should be at least two to three inches.

Will it damage my hair?

No, as a matter of fact it will help your hair thrive and grow. Loc extensions are one of the best protective styles for Afro hair imaginable.

Is it okay if I have relaxed hair?

Having relaxed hair is not an issue at all. I can, and have, installed loc extensions in relaxed hair, but ideally there should be some new growth.

Is it hard to remove the temporary locs?

No it is not, especially considering that I don’t use glues or adhesives of any kind.

My hair is thinning/falling out, is it okay for me to get loc extensions or crochet braids?

It is my personal belief that if you are experiencing hair loss, thinning or balding, you need to address the root cause of that issue before getting extensions. There is nothing wrong with having naturally fine hair, but I don’t want to put undue stress on weakened follicles.
