Faux Locs is a hairstyle that can achieve dreads without permanent commitment. It’s a protective hairstyle and a great alternative to hair braiding. Faux locs give you a diva-like appearance, which is incredibly easy to maintain. This technique is also popular due to the negligible damage it causes to the hair.

Faux locs are known as ‘commitment-free’ dreads due to their low maintenance. This method has risen in popularity, being a protective hairstyle that thoroughly covers the natural hair. Faux locs are preferred by individuals who want to achieve natural hair and dreads without any permanent commitment.

In this technique, the dreadlocks are the hair extensions used rather than your natural hair. This is why faux locs create dreads without the need to set the hair backward into permanent dreads.

Faux locs are an incredibly low-maintenance style and an excellent proxy for hair braiding.


At Elite Braids, we’re experts in creating a natural look with faux locs and dreads. Our hair stylists braid your hair into boxes, after which they’re wrapped in extensions to achieve a dreaded look. Using this method, you can add your desired hair length and wear a flawless faux locs dread look.

Elite Braids salons in Houston can create any style with faux locs dread, including bohemian locs, butterfly locks, goddess locs, and goddess locs, along with starter loc and loc touch-up services.

We ensure that none of your hair is damaged due to breakage caused by the dreads by applying conditioners and hair masks prior to the treatment. The treatment time for faux locs dreads is 5-9 hours, depending on the length and volume of the locs.

Two women braided my hair in box braids and they did an awesome job at the Westheimer location. They were very professional, took their time and did an all around awesome job. They held a great conversation and time flew by. I will definitely be a returning customer and recommend them.

I got the Bohemian Goddess Locs! I love the style but absolutely hate the human hair that was used. Within 2 days of my hair being done it was already looking very tangled and nappy... not the locs but the human hair that was used. For the price of the hair it should be better quality. And I can’t comb it without it shredding really bad.... kind of disappointed how bad the human hair is getting by the day.... BUT other than the hair I would recommend!
