Goddess locs is a hairstyle particularly popular among the black folks and honestly, I think it’s simply gorgeous.


It’s a hairstyle trend that has been on for a while now and I don’t think its going away so fast anytime soon.

Sometime in the middle of the week, I called my friend Okwy, and asked her if she could send me the number of someone to fix my hair.

After a couple of attempts to get in touch with the lady, we both basically gave up.

Especially because my mind started processing different things.

  1. I would have to pay for her transport to and from my house (hey, don’t judge me! 😋)
  2. I would have to pay a little extra for the work itself.
  3. (Probably the most important reason I gave up) I’d be confined to a spot for  longer than I’m comfortable with.

With those in mind I decided to just get my hair done myself and more importantly at my own pace.

Believe it or not, I shot the beginning and the end of this video 2 weeks apart. Lol. 😆

Now, I’ve had goddess locs done in the past.

Just that at the time, I didn’t even know what it was called and after a few days, I hated it.

I hated it because, it got terribly rough, it unraveled way too quickly and easily.

What was most annoying was I spent about N17,000 (approx. $54) on making my hair.

It didn’t last even up to 4 weeks! 😡


cheap and easy goddess locs


This time I got thinking, there has got to be a less expensive way to achieve the same result.

Well, guess what? I did this one for less and with an even better result!

In the process, I also figured out a few tricks to make it work without a needle or a hook and ways to make my goddess locs last longer.

I also figured out a way to fold my long hair without any sort of sewing.

The one and maybe only downside to making this yourself is, it sure does take more time.

If someone was fixing your hair and needed to be done and move on to other things, they would do it faster.

Perhaps the “rush” is why the first one I had done at the hair salon didn’t last…or not?


At the end of the day, I spent……wait for it…. N1800 (approx. $6)! BOOM!

It’s absolutely one of my favourite hairstyles right now and I’ll definitely be making this again.
