How to: Faux Locks with Brazilian Wool

So, i went and got the Brazilian wool hair which to my surprise, is not made of Brazilian hair but 100% acrylic yarn. Not sure where it’s made but my gut tells me it’s from China. And me being a DIY kind of a person who wants to try things out almost every time, I availed myself to the opportunity. I have never done faux locks before. The closest I got was some African threading that looked like faux locks especially after washing them. But the intended look was mini African threading. I recorded some footage for that as well. Check it out here.

I love these locks like wow! I have never been in love with a hairstyle like this. I might just have permanent locks done. I’m joking. I could never have permanent locks with the way I like changing my hairstyles time and again. Sometimes I feel like there is not enough months in a year to do all the beautiful styles I love. N’ways, I’m enjoying these while they last.

For these, I used 5 packs of Brazilian wool hair and I got the pack of 12 for R150 which is affordable if you ask me. I also used Nashe Organics Shea-Argan Leave in conditioner to moisturise my hair and the Umera Whipped Shea butter to seal moisture. It took me 10 hours to complete the style and that’s too much for me but I am so loving the locks it was all worth it. I braided my hair with the wool for about 5 centimeters and then started wrapping from the base of the braid. Why am I telling you all this? It’s all in the video so go ahead and watch it. Don’t forget to subscribe if you’re not subscribed already. Give it a thumbs up if you like it and comment, share it with friends and family, on your whatsapp groups and Facebook groups. I will appreciate that a million.

Oh, here are some pics. I took so many still frames on this one and I can’t decide on which ones to leave out because they all look so cute. Love you lots. Thanks for watching or for just reading this far. I appreciate you.

wow beautiful protective hair style!!! so can you also wash it? and what do you apply for a hairline and which spray do you use.

Eve 22 August 2017 - 10:12

For my hairline, I apply eco styler gel to smooth the edges. When the gel starts to get old, then I wash it out and condition the hairline only. I didn’t wash my hair the duration of this style. I just treated my scalp and my edges. I did a video on how I maintained my hair https://youtu.be/dJF8jxOK9p4

Good evening Ma, I did the same faux locs with Brazilian wool but I can’t move my head let alone to style it in a bun because its too tight on my scalp even after it was dip in hot water, so how did you get about Yours? Thanks

I did not make mine too tight so I could style them very well. Next time, tell your stylist not to do them too tight and if you are in Gauteng, come on over to Natural Moisture Hair Studio and we will do your protective styling without pulling your hair.

Hi, I love these so much. Im transitioning to natural from my relaxed hair. How much does it cost to get them done at your hair studio and how long?

Eve 28 August 2017 - 17:59

It will take about 4 hours to do and will cost R500 including a wash and treatment but will not include the hair or wool.

Hiyaa!!!! I just did this. N I’m loving it. But I think the fresh hair is too stiff for my liking. How can I soften it

Evenes Ruth Mafupa 26 February 2018 - 16:31

It gets softer as it gets older

I’ve always had a problem with braids and my scalp i.e. my scalp just breaks out the next day. To which i realized its the chemicals in the hair that react badly with my scalp, so i have to dip it in hot water and vinegar and dry it before adding it on. Is the Brazilian wool easier on the scalp or will i have to go through the same routine?

Evenes Ruth Mafupa 29 May 2018 - 12:35

Hi. It will be best to rinse the Brazilian wool as well because just in case your scalp may react to the chemicals used to dye the wool.
