What Are Butterfly Locs? 

Butterfly locs, also known as distressed locs, are a temporary locs hairstyle in which a piece of wavy hair is crocheted into the root of a braided hair. Then the wavy hair is wrapped around the braids loosely with some gaps by the side, hence the name distressed locs.

What Hair To Use For Butterfly Locs.

It depends on your budget and it also depends on the method you use. We have two butterfly locs methods. Which are

1. Wrap Butterfly locs method.

2. Crochet butterfly locs method .

But I selected different hair types that are all perfect for butterfly locs. You can check them out below:

For Wrap Butterfly Locs Method

For the braided hair: Some people prefer to add synthetic hair to the braids to make the locs thicker. Depends on your choice.

  1. Cuban twist hair 
  2. Expression twisted up spring afro twist

For wrapping: You need wavy, curly hair. I would suggest.

  1. Freetress water wave braiding crochet hair
  2. Sensational lulutress crochet braid water wave 
  3. Dorsanee passion twists water wave crochet braiding hair 

For Crotchet Butterfly Locs Method

The Crotchet method involves hair that has already been loc’d no need for wrapping and all. What you need to do is crochet it into the root of your hair using a crochet needle.

The best hair types I would suggest for this technique includes: 

  1. Xtrend pre-twisted passion twist crochet hair
  2. Janet collection: Nala tress butterfly locs
  3. Toyotress butterfly locs crochet hair
