You will need a crochet tool and experience with braiding hair.


  1. Before anything else, go ahead and wash your head, scalp, and natural hair to get rid of any build-up and prepare for the cleanest base design.
  2. Once your hair has adequately dried, you will need to manage your hair up into either a cornrow or box braid design that will adequately hold each crochet hair loc. If you choose a cornrow design, you should make sure the braiding patterns are nice and flat while still feeling comfortable. 
  3. Each Nu locs crochet hair extension is installed individually. Grab your crochet Needle or latch hook device and stick the hook underneath a cornrow braid or at the bottom of one of your box braids. It’s better to start near the rear of the head and work your way forward. 
  4. Once the hook has completely clear through the hair, go ahead and place one of the nu locs premade loops over and then pull the entire crochet braiding hair back through the entry point. Loop the nu loc and pull it tight for a completed installment of one loc
  5. If you are doing this with box braids, you will need to unravel the nu loc slightly and place the hook through the center. Then you will attach the hook to your braid and pull it through the loc to finish the design. 
  6. Repeat steps 3 through 5 until you have completely installed all the locs.
