Faux locs especially have started to gain traction in the beauty industry as a viable style that you can wear in any social or professional setting. A faux style is beneficial for a variety of reasons. First, these locs are perfect for the woman that wants to give her natural hair a break. Often, hair is heat styled or treated with chemicals. While that creates the desired look, it can often wear down and damage your hair. These locs work as a protective style. Allowing your natural fibers to recover and repair themselves without you having to sacrifice any of the style options that you want. Protecting your natural hair is important for anyone and needs to be a priority for anyone serious about style. A faux style is also great for the woman that wants to have locs, but is unsure of how they will look.
