Hi guys! I’m back with another hair review to kick off 2018 the right way! We all know there real new year starts in February, January was a trial month 😉. Today’s review is on the new “Bobbi Boss Bomba Faux Locs Soul Goddess 20” “. If you’ve been here before you know I absolutely adore the original Bobbi Boss Bomba Dreadlocks Soul 20”!
I loved the original so much that I absolutely had to try them. The goddess style is very “on-trend” right now and i am obsessed! The texture is the same as the original but the ends of this one are curly to give it the “goddess” style. I got my Bobbi Boss Bomba Faux Locs Soul at beauty depot online and they retail for $7.29 per pack.

For my install I used 7 packs of the hair in the colour #1, with about 15 strands each, using both the individual and original crochet methods. As always my hair was done by Tess, I did 2 rows of individual crochet in the front just to give that natural look then the regular crochet method in the back for fullness.
After installation I cut the curly ends of the hair a little bit, because it felt like there was a little too much curl and not enough locs for me personally but that’s no big deal. As expected the hair was not heavy at all, super soft and just amazing. I loved it instantly.
You should expect to see some sheen on the hair immediately after installation. I have noticed that all these synthetic hairstyles always have some level of sheen to them straight out the pack. Ignore it, with a few days of wear it goes away completely so don’t be worried.
This hairstyle, like most of my protective styles has been relatively easy. At night I use a super large satin bonnet and shake it out in the morning to get all the hair back in place. Since I work out a lot washing my hair is always necessary. As with my past experience with the original Bomba Dreadlocks Soul, I washed my hair with this style however, because the end of this hair are “free” and not loc’d, you have you be extra careful when washing to avoid annoying tangles because this hair does tangle pretty easily (don’t say I didn’t warn you!).
When I felt super lazy, I must confess, I would use dry shampoo if I didn’t feel up to dealing with potential tangles a traditional wash would bring.
The curly “goddess” ends of the hair got ridiculously tangled after a while so I cut off even more. Being unable to separate the strands was absolutely annoying so you will notice the hair is shorter on me than it is on others. I could have ignored it but just knowing they were tangled was honestly a bother.
The photos below show how a few of the strands got matted together & how others strands tangled & formed knots.
You can do everything with this style once your crochet is done well. I didn’t do many styles, I like my hair down or in a ponytail (great for workouts). However, it can be put into a high bun & top knot. I really can’t think of anything I couldn’t have done if I really wanted to. The only thing I did to really style my hair was use some of my favourite argan oil hair spray to keep it looking fresh whenever it started to look a little dull and in need of a little refreshing.
I had these faux locs in for a complete 2 months. With the original Bomba Dreadlocks Soul I took those locs out, washed & reused them with no problems. However, these locs definitely aren’t reusable. The matting of the curls caused me to have to cut a lot of strands to get them out. Those that did not have to be cut look very “pulled” and messy so I wouldn’t reuse those either.
I really did enjoy this style how it looks on me & I would definitely repurchase these locs to achieve the goddess look. I hope I’ve answered all your questions but if I haven’t leave me a comment below & I will definitely get back to you!
Until next time my loves,
