Colourful Locs – Inspiration and How To’s

‘If you want to spice up the look of your locs, adding some colour will give you that extra oomph. Here are some looks to inspire your colourful transformation:

How to Colour Locs

It might seem difficult to add colour to your locs, but the process is much easier than you would expect.

Bleaching and Colouring Locs

If you want a long-term change for your locs, bleaching and colouring your hair is the best option. Nurse Poizon Ivy has a great tutorial on how to do this yourself:

Colouring Locs With Hair Wax

For a less permanent solution, hair wax is a great solution. The most important thing to remember when using hair wax is that you should ensure that it is thoroughly dried before you’ve moved on.

It can be quite tough to remove from your locs, and you don’t want any residue left in your hair, so you should make sure that you thoroughly wash the wax out. It may take a couple of washes, and an apple cider vinegar rinse should get rid of any residual wax.

Hair chalk is another useful non-permanent solution. While you don’t see many people using it as much as hair wax to colour their locs, hair chalk may result in a bit less residue being left in after you’ve washed it out.
