BOHO LOCS® is the crochet loc brand everyone is talking about! Known for their innovative and fresh styles and colour combinations. The brand has quickly built a reputation for both the quality of their hair and customer service.BOHO LOCS® are handmade crochet faux locs, with each loc having its own unique waves, twists and curls. The locs are very natural looking with a low sheen and lustre for a beautiful and believable result!BOHO LOCS® are made from the highest quality Japanese synthetic Kanekelon hair.
MERMAID LOCS® are a combination of locs and waves. A pack of MERMAID LOCS® will contain on average 100 locs and 40 strands of our mermaid loc wavy hair. The result is a stunning combination of locs and waves that turns heads.
Ditch the guessing game - one pack of any of our Boho styles is all you’ll need for a full-head install! We make our packs with a finished look in mind, and include enough locs for touch-ups and replacements.
All our styles (with the exception of the Empress collection) are pre-looped for a quick and easy crochet installation!
At this time no, we don’t sell smaller or individual packs. One packs is more than enough for an install and you will likely have hair left over for touch ups if needed!

A typical install will take on average 2 hours, around the time it takes to watch a movie.
Due to the handmade nature of our locs and each loc being unique in it’s wave and curl pattern we do not recommend them for individual crochet installation. We recommend installing traditional crochet in the back, and individual crochet in the front with double wrapping to keep it secure (tutorial videos are sent after purchase)

We create these with longevity at the front of our minds. You can wear your locs for up to 12 weeks at a time!
Yes if you want to! Most customers will reuse some of their locs a second time. Talk about getting the most bang for your buck, right?
Unless you’re mud wrestling on the daily (hey, we don’t judge - what you do in your own personal time is your business), it’s not necessary to wash them, but if you do then use cold water. We don’t recommend washing the Mermaid Locs at all.
Yes! It’s totally ok to swim in the BOHO GODDESS locs, but we don’t recommend swimming in the Mermaid Locs.

Introducing Boho Empress Locs
Welcome to the world of Boho Empress!
Get to know our first ever skinny loc style and undoubtedly the most natural-looking locs collection to date! This guide will cover all you need to know- from what comes with your pack, how to install , and more.
All About Boho Empress Locs
These lightweight and really real loc-like faux locs style have been highly requested and you know here at Boho Locs, when you ask, we listen.
So, here's a few things you need to know ahead of launch...
What you'll get in your pack
For everyone that purchases our Empress locs, you'll receive not one but TWO packs of hair. As these locs are naturally thinner in style, you will likely use between one pack and a half, to one and two-thirds of the two packs.
All packs will also come with a FREE pack of hair ties for you to decorate and style your locs as you like!
Check out our video below for answers to more of your FAQ's.
Top 5 Differences between our Goddess Locs & the Empress locs
1. The look and feel
They are thinner than our Goddess Locs and are closer to real locs in size and appearance
2. You will receive TWO packs
Instead of the one pack as you would with our other styles, it's completely up to you how much you use depending on how full you feel comfortable in!
3. Our Empress Locs come in 3 different lengths! 👀👀
That's right! Our Empress Locs come in a Short n Sweet 16 inches, the Classic Long of 20-22 inches and Empress Deluxe of 26 inches! So you can rock whichever length best suits your style. 🔥🔥
4. The cornrow base
Empress Locs has a different technique to our Goddess Locs. Instead of leaving individuals out at the front, with Empress the base is ALL cornrow!
You'll need between 12-14 cornrows going back. One thin cornrow will be the one to go all the way around the back of the head and link up with the rest of the plaits, whilst about every two-three cornrows will merge into one canerow (depending on your head shape). This will happen about 2inches back into the smaller cornrows before merging.
5. Finally - the Empress Locs are not pre-looped
Being so thin, if you crocheted individually this would take a super long time!
Therefore we need to create our own loops - which can be done easily by following the below steps:
Fold the loc in half at the middle of the loc
Pull the folded side through the cornrow braid with the crochet needle - creating your own loop!
Pull the ends through the loop and tie and remember not to pull too hard!
Watch more in our install video below as we show you in detail.

Styling Your Empress Locs
You can style your Empress Locs however you like! Whether half-up-half-down, in a high bun - the choices are just as diverse as your Goddess Locs.
Stretching Your Empress Locs
Yes, you can! That's right, you can stretch your Empressess Locs using the same method as our Goddess Locs.
Using a hair-dryer to blow heat on your locs, simply run your fingers through to the specific area, stretching out the locs.

General Care Tips
Remember to keep your hair nourished whilst rocking the Empress Locs by spraying a scalp refresher or applying oil to your roots
You can also wash your locs, be sure to rinse them well if applying any product, but we dont recommend sleeping in the locs damp
If your skin is sensitive to synthetic hair we always recommend doing a ACV (Apple, Cidre, Vinegar) rinse before installing the hair
Remember not to cornrow the hair too tight and not to loop the locs too tight - we don't want any scalp tension !
We hope you enjoy your Empress Locs and can't wait to see you slay in them!
