DO I DIP BUTTERFLY LOCS? … Hot water dipping butterfly locs is not an approved sealing method because the distressed locs tend to unravel easier than other faux loc stylings.
Faux locs are no more damaging than any other hairstyle that adds hair to your own hair with too much tension on the scalp. … If you already have damaged hair then adding that extra hair may not be a good idea and that goes double for thinning edges as that extra tension will only make your edges worse.
This can happen if you have run out of the hair, or the braid underneath is too thick or wrapping loosely. If your faux locs is unravelling at the roots, then you must wrap the Cuban/Marley at least six times before proceeding to cover the rest of your braid.
