Invisible locs

TikTok is a never ending source of inspiration for protective hairstyles – and invisible locs are the latest style to meet the approval of the textured hair community on the platform. But what exactly are invisible locs, and why are they causing such a sensation?

What are invisible locs?

At first, you might mistake invisible locs for faux locs, but there’s an important distinction between the two styles.

Faux locs involve using pre-made loc extensions that mimic the appearance of real locs. They are typically braided or twisted into your natural hair, creating the illusion of genuine locs without the long-term commitment.

On the other hand, invisible locs are an entirely different thing. While they may look like locs from a distance, they aren’t locs at all! Instead, they are a twist on twists. This style combines the aesthetic of dreadlocks with the versatility of twists, resulting in a unique, low-commitment look that you can change when you fancy something different.

What makes this style even more captivating is its adaptability. You can customize the size and length of your Invisible Locs to suit your preferences. Whether you prefer a chic, short bob or luxurious, flowing locks, this trend can be tailored to fit your vision.

What are the benefits of wearing invisible locs?

They’re low maintenance

Unlike traditional locs that require regular maintenance and upkeep, invisible locs are relatively low-maintenance. You won’t need to spend hours retwisting or palm-rolling your locs, making this style perfect for busy lifestyles.

They’re versatile

Invisible locs offer the best of both worlds – the unique aesthetics of locs and the versatility of twists. You can experiment with various styles, from updos to braids, and even embellish them with accessories to make your look even more unique.

Temporary commitment

One of the biggest advantages of invisible locs is that they offer a temporary commitment. If you ever decide to switch up your hairstyle, it’s easy to do so without the hassle of undoing traditional locs.

Perfect for all curl patterns

Whatever your pattern, invisible locs can be adapted to work with any hair type, making it an inclusive and accessible style for everyone.
