Petal Locs HairstyleAchieving a short sassy look with longer locs is possible. If you are always yearning to try out some of the trendy short hairstyles for locs, but your dreads are on the longer side, there are a few tricks that you can do to wear your hair short, temporarily.

When I just started my dreads, I kind of liked the short messy look sometimes, but still wanted my hair to grow longer so I could do those cute hairstyles that required a good amount of length.

Fast forward to over 3 years of growing my locs, I sometimes wish to have shorter hairstyles, not necessarily short hair, so one day I decided to give my locs a short makeover with the popular petal hairstyle.

Keep Your Long Locs  Short With the Petal Hairstyle

Don’t worry about losing your beautiful head of locs if you decide to get this hairstyle done. There is a little trick to achieving this look without cutting a strand of your loc. All you need is a few small black elastic bands and you’re good to go.

The technique that is used for the petal locs hairstyle, is simply bending a strand of loc or a few at a time. If you have smaller locs, you may need to bend multiple locs at a time, then secure them with elastic bands.

If you do them the right way, the elastic bands won’t show. Make sure that you secure them near the roots of your locs. Another thing, if your hair is super long, you can bend your locs multiple times to get the desired length of your loops.

The good thing about this petal locs hairstyle, is that I still got to massage my scalp with my castor oil without pulling out the style.

This locs style is perfect for special occasions like weddings, receptions, parties, etc. If you cover your hair at nights, this hairstyle can last for 1-2 weeks, until you’re ready for a wash. To keep them hydrated and bouncy, spritz some water mixed with natural essential oils.
