Todays post is a hair review on the Bobbi Boss Bae Locs! If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know I wore this hairstyle for almost a month. These locs were released on April 18th online at Beauty Depot & of course I got them that night. The locs are thicker than their other existing styles, the Bobbi Boss Bomba Dreadlock Soul (discontinued but still available until sold out) & the Bobbi Boss Nu Locs. I’ve included a picture of all 3 locs side by side for size comparison.
This loc style is meant to mimic the popular “boho” style of locs with accent strands. Each pack of this hair comes with two, festival ready, accent locs. The accents on the locs are multicoloured strands of yarn. I ordered 7 packs & used 6.5 packs for my install. The bright colours were bit much for me, I only ended up keeping about 5 of those strands n in my hair. Tess did my hair in 2 rows of individual crochet & the rest of my hair in the traditional style of crochet. Each pack retails for $6.29 for 12” packs & $7.29 for 20” packs. The photo below is of me on the night the hair was installed. You can see these locs had minimal shine as compared to the other faux locs I have tried.
Caring for Bae Locs
As always with faux locs, handling this style was easy. I used my super large satin bonnet at night & in the morning I would shake my head to get the hair to fall back in place then style as I see fit for the day. With this hairstyle I only washed my hair once because of how soft these locs are I’m not sure they would survive a second wash. I did however use my TRESemmé Fresh Start Dry Shampoo when I found it necessary.
The locs strands because of their soft nature did get a little bit fuzzy but it wasn’t anything ridiculous. Quite frankly, the fuzziness makes them look better to me.
I didn’t have any serious tangling issues with these locs, surprisingly. I expected to have some because of how soft they are but to my surprise I didn’t have any that I had to use my scissors to cut free.
Styling Bae Locs
For this style I opted for the 12″ version rather than my usual 20″ so I was a bit limited in style options. I wore these locs down or in a ponytail. Top knots were also achievable but I didn’t wear it that way much. I used my go-to side part to get my signature “flip over” for volume on top. For edge control I used ORS Olive Oil Edge Control or CURLS Blueberry Bliss Curl Control Paste.
Taking down this hair was relatively easy. As much as I enjoy the look of individual crochet faux locs, I hate the take down. Taking them out is a little more tedious. These locs can be washed (gently) & use a second time however since I have half a pack unused I would replace some of the locs that look a bit unraveled for the next install.
I absolutely ADORE these locs! Honestly, I never thought I would love them, I had second thoughts about getting the 12″ over the 20″ but I’m so glad I stepped out my comfort zone & did it. These short locs framed my face perfectly & their thickness gave me the body & volume I love to have with my hairstyles. I 100% recommend this style to anyone who was considering them. This hairstyle will have you looking like the ultimate BAE! 😍
These locs definitely deliver on being the best faux loc look I have ever tried. That being said, if you’re anything like me & love thick (slightly messy) locs over thin (super neat) ones, Bobbi Boss Bae locs are for you! The accent strands are easily removable so if you’re not here for the colours that’s an easy fix.
I hope you enjoyed reading this post, let me know in the comments if you’ve ever tried a more natural looking crochet faux loc because I would love to know if any other crochet style can beat this one!
Until next time my loves,
