Goddess locs are a protective hairstyle using a silkier type of hair and have loose curly ends as opposed to regular faux locs that just have a blunt end. Many stylists use the waterfall method during installation. This involves pulling pieces of hair from the loc to create a worn but polished look. It can take anywhere from 5-12 hours to complete this style depending upon your stylist. You can also do this at home, and while it may take a while, let’s just say they are totally worth the wait! The best part is, you can wear this style for 6-8 weeks at a time.
