Dr. Kari Williams started a frenzy when she debuted her latest creation on actress, Megan Good.
I instantly fell in love as the pics made rounds all over the internet. I decided to go in search of how to achieve the style and the hair needed for the style.
I watched various videos about this style and tried to recreate it accordingly, but in the end I relied on the technique I’ve used before and my own ingenuity. Below I share the hair I used, where to get it, my review of them.
CB Nourishing Hair Pomade (uhhmazing! + on sale this week!)
1 pack Wet n’ wavy New Star Human Hair Blend hair sold by Cowgirl Hair.
4 packs Nafy Collection Bomb Twist Hair sold by Hattache and LHboutique.
*Synthetic hair tends to be a little darker than it’s human hair counterpart color, that’s why I used a #2 for the Nafy hair.
Please note that because my hair is waist length and because of my technique, I did not need to use more than 1 pack of the wet n’ wavy hair and I needed to use 4 packs of the Nafy bomb twist hair for wrapping.
1. Wash the bulk hair: Before installing I place the hair in a bucket with cold water and some Johnson & Johnson’s All Over Baby Wash since I have so much of that + no need to used fancy shampoo since all I need is the chemicals washed off.
To dry the hair quickly, I placed one bundle at a time in a pillow case, tied it up real good and ran it through my dryer on a low setting. While it worked well for me, do this at your own risk!
My Review of Nafy Collection Bomb Twist Hair and Star Brand Hair
I wanted to use human hair, but the costs were a prohibitive for me. Instead, I did my best to find alternatives that would be gentle on my hair and would look almost identical to the hair used Dr. Kari’s kit. See what she uses in pic below.
During my research I found some good alternatives. The hair I chose looks like this below:
The wet n’ wavy hair is not 100% human, however it feels fabulous and I was able to use my hot rollers several times on them to create curls.
The Nafy Collection Bomb twist hair is really nice and soft and really long (like 48). It is not as kinky as marley hair, and not as bulky, but the look of Dr. Kari’s locs lend to a silky type, and less bulky kind of hair like this one.
Alternative Hair For This Style
For on an all in one kit that includes a bunch of hair bundles (perfect for hair that is shorter than mine), hair holders and other things to complete the style try CurlRefinary.com’s gold goddess locs kit here. Because let’s be honest, buying form a bunch of vendors and waiting for everything to come in can be annoying.
TIP: You can always by human hair on wefts and simply cut them off.
Next time I share about my Goddess Faux Locs, I’ll show you how I clean them and how I maintain them- from the wavy ends, to the grown out roots.
