Lulutress Boho Locs Review & Maintenance

Happy 2023 everyone!

I hope the new year is treating you all well. I know it’s February and I’m late to the party, but I'm finally back with a review of the Lulutress Bohemian (goddess) Locs. 

You can watch the full review on Youtube here: 



Let’s talk a little bit about the product. The Lulutress bohemian locs are pre-made and pre-looped.

They are a soft loc with loose curly strands through them. So if you've done or seen bohemian braids before, you would know that those are the braids that have like curls coming out of them. These are the loc version of that.

I stock these in my store in a few different colours.

They come in a 20 inch length so depending on your height for me it comes about three quarter way down my back.

 This is the second time I'm wearing the goddess locs, and the colour that I choose this time is the 1B27. At this point I've had these locks on for the last four weeks and they’re nearing the end of life.



Like all crochet hair, the boho locs are really easy to install.

I use my generic cornrow pattern for installing my crochet. It is my go to for basically all my styles. It usually takes me about an hour and 1/2 to cornrow my head. I’m getting faster nowadays.

The locs are pre looped. This basically means that they have a loop that you can put your crochet needle through. This makes them super easy to install, no fiddling around.

So it takes me about an hour to install my whole head. So yeah so that's 2 1/2 hours to have a whole head of crochet.


How much do you need for a full head?


The locs come in a pack of three bundles and each bundle has nine locks each so a pack of these has 27 locks. I only use about 3 1/2 packs for my head.

But my head is small to medium and my hair is not that thick. So depending on the fullness of your hair, I'd say between 3 to 5 packs for full head.

I personally find that if I go over 3 1/2 packs then I really start to get a bit of that poofy look and I mean it still looks nice but it makes it a bit less comfortable for me to sleep. So I just stick to about three 3 1/2 packs.




Pros and Cons:

So getting into the pros and cons of this style I'm going to do a comparison to the others locs that I've installed before. The Lulutress butterfly locs. I installed these last year and wore them for about 2 months.


  1. Of course the fast install. As far as installation I'd say that the bohemian are much easier to install, just because the butterfly locs are much chunkier so I find them a little bit more fiddly and therefore they take me longer to install.

  1. It's definitely a very pretty style. I really like the softness of the goddess look.


  1. It's also quite lightweight but honestly I found all the Lulutress crochet to be lightweight. They are made of Kanekalon. I would only say just be careful about how much you install because the more you install, the puffier it will be.  

  1. As far as durability, they last me at least 4 to five weeks but also fine that's a matter of preference some people can wear it longer with care.



Now, as for the cons. I basically have one.

It is definitely higher maintenance than the butterfly locs. And that is of course because  it's bohemian.  These curly bits tend to tangle and it's the same with bohemian braids. You will get tangling. So you have to be prepared to maintain them by detangling. You can just do it once or twice a week and I'll take you through my detangling process as well. So because of the tangling, it doesn't last as long as the butterfly locs.



The main product that you need for detangling is conditioner. You can use any.

The one that I like to use is the Garnier Fructis Smoothing Macadamia Hair Food. I really like the texture of this product on my crochet. It’s not too heavy and it doesn’t leave a residue.

 I pair this up with a product to reduce frizz. My usual go-to is the Ganier Fructis Sleek and Shine.

 I’ve featured these two products before but I’m going to introduce you guys to a new addition to my detangling routine.And that is the Aussie Miracle Curls Curl refresher.

Now, in spite of the name, this product is not made in Australia. It’s American and I had to order it from there. I decided to try it after I saw a video on Instagram. I saw a lady use this product to spray down and detangle her wigs and I was curious how well it would work on crochet.

The product is a slick spray, and I wouldn’t say it’s a miracle product, but it definitely makes it easier for me to separate my tangles.

 If you don’t have a similar product you can spray a little water, just a little to help your detangling.



So, to detangle, I first spray my Aussie evenly through my hair, starting in sections. Then I do my leave in macadamia hair food and lastly the Sleek and shine. At this point, the hair is quite easy to gently separate.

 After I’m done detangling the whole head, I just go in and cut all the loose ends and the bits that are have tangled too much. And that's it.


I hope you give these goddess locs a try. They are a really beautiful style. Let me know if you have any questions or comments :)
