How To Revamp Your Old Braids To A Whole New Look!
Braids looking old and dusty?! Don’t worry I’m here to help, don’t take out your braids, instead give them a wash and cut them to your desired length.
1
Use any edge control to gather all the loose bits of hair at the root of your braid.
2
Take a small tooth comb and comb that edge control in.
3
You need some crotchet hair, I used the Model Model hair in style Deep Twist Bulk. One strand will do just make sure to separate it out.
4
Now here’s the tricky part...you want to feed the crotchet hair into your braid but make sure that it’s equal on both sides.
5
Once you’ve done that you can start wrapping the hair around your braid. Wrap tightly around the base so it gathers all the new growth you have.
6
To get the butterfly/soft locs effect wrap the hair loosely in some parts. I use my finger as a guide to see how loose I want it.
7
For the ends I fold the end of my braid up and wrap tightly to secure. Make sure that it’s tight to avoid it loosening over time.
8
To make it look extra distressed I take half a piece of the hair and wrap it around the middle of the loc.
9
Keep wrapping till the hair is finished and you will have yourself a successful soft loc.

How did I do? I think I revamped my hair perfectly. Let me know if you try it out! I’d love to see.
