Dreadlock Extensions / Faux Locs
Dreadlock Extensions West Palm Beach
Dreadlocks extensions are an easy way to try dreadlocks. Whether you want a temporary style or want to transition to permanent dreads, dreadlock extensions can provide you with the option of having longer locs immediately. At Onyx Natural Hair Salon our main dreadlock extension stylist has been a master trainer for over 10 years. Here are a few tips and FYI’s to help you along the way.
Crochet Braid Dreadlocks – Temporary
For a temporary style it is better to use crochet braided loc extensions and not “permanent” loc extensions. Crochet braided locs can last anywhere from 4-10 weeks and are relatively quick to install and take-down. Crochet braids can vary in price but usually cost between $125- $160 dollars. We recommend a salon wash or scalp cleansing until you are ready to remove your braids.
Permanent Dreadlock Extensions
Permanent dreadlock extensions / faux locs can last up to 2 years. However, you must get your hair and budding dreadlocks maintained every 3-5 weeks. Permanent loc extensions are very versatile and can be done on natural hair, short hair, chemically treated hair and other hair types. The cost is the biggest factor when deciding to go this route. Loc extensions can be very expensive because of the lengthy process and cost of the hair used. Depending on the length and size desired by the client, it can take 10-24 hrs to be completed and cost between $400 – $800 dollars. Dreadlocks extensions can also be done on pre-existing locs. When deciding to get permanent loc extensions we recommend using a trained professional. Loc extensions can cause damage to the hair and poor locs if not done correctly the first time around.
