Deciding to transition to locs is a big decision, just ask anyone who has started that journey. One way to have a taste of the locs lifestyle, without making the total commitment is faux loc extensions. Tish Summers from Shear Diva Designz used loc extensions to create this long ponytail using the interlocking locs method. To give this ponytail a more natural look, Tish decided to use goddess-like extensions. She also used different types of gold jewelry and nylon accessories throughout the hairstyle. Tish used an interlocking method to install the extensions. This allows her client to go longer periods of time between salon visits also. Then she finished off the look by creating a flirty side ponytail to give the hairstyle a nice edgy look.
Long Ponytail Using Interlocking Locks
This ponytail is not only designed to be beautiful. Tish Summers from Shear Diva Designz made sure to create a hairstyle that would last also. She did this by choosing to use an interlocking locs technique to apply the hair extensions, rather than just palm rolling them. An interlocking technique is a longer process, but the results are a longer-lasting hairstyle for the client. To make this long hairstyle one step further, Tish decided to add curls at the end of the extensions to create goddess locs. Finishing off the look, Tish added pieces of gold jewelry and some gold nylon string in strategic places throughout the hairstyle as accents.
An important thing to remember when having faux locs installed is to ensure that they are not applied so tightly as to create scalp damage. That’s why you should always trust hair installations to a professional hairstylist like Tish Summers.
Taking Care of Faux Locs
By definition, loc is designed to be carefree and low maintenance. That being said, there are some things that Tish Summers suggests her clients do at home, between salon visits, to keep their locs looking salon fresh, and to keep their hair underneath healthy. The first thing she recommends is a consistent shampoo routine that will thoroughly cleanse the scalp. The client should run their fingers through their hair and pull apart the locs, as well as use some type of moisturizer every day.
These simple steps should ensure that your long ponytail using the interlocking locs method looks just as good as the day they left the salon. It should also keep your hair healthy as well.
