2. Butterfly Locs: A Bold Statement

You can’t go wrong with this one a crotchet hairstyles because the older they get the better they look, they’re like regular faux locs in the sense that your hair is completely protected because it’s wrapped by the synthetic fiber so it’s not left exposed to the elements so there’s no damage done to your hair. The length and size depends on you and how you want it . To ensure the hairstyle lasts at least 4-6 weeks it’s recommended to wear a silk or satin bonnet before bed. Synthetic hair also draws the moisture out of natural hair so it’s advisable to have a spray bottle with jojoba oil and water to spritz the locs and to replenish the natural hair under them.

1. Invisible Locs: A Natural Summer Style

This hairstyle is my absolute favorite because it’s meant to imitate dreadlocks as well as Senegalese twist. It’s a twofer. I’m obsessed with this look and that is why it’s my number 1. It’s a trending hairstyle on TikTok and such a fun take on twists. They can be styled as a half updo, middle part ,side part, pushed back,tied up and so many other ways. It’s also a protective hairstyle so you don’t have to worry about your hair because it doesn’t strain it at all. To maintain this hairstyle I recommend wrapping your hair at night and applying hair oil, castor oil or sheen spray and some mousse here and there just to touch up on maintenance in case the hairs start to look frayed. The mousse also revives the gel that is applied to the root of the hair.


We hope that this article has given you some inspiration for your next summer hairstyle. Whether you’re looking for a low-maintenance style or something more intricate, there are plenty of lock hairstyles to choose from.

Remember to take care of your locks during the summer months by keeping them hydrated and protected from the sun. You can do this by using a leave-in conditioner, wearing a hat, or using a UV protectant spray.

If you’re not sure which lock hairstyle is right for you, consider consulting with a hairstylist. They can help you find a style that complements your face shape, hair type, and personal style.
