There are two main ways to install butterfly locs - the Braid and Wrap Method or the Crochet Method. It’s up to you which one you use, but start out by braiding your natural hair. Part it based on how big you want your locs and braid into single braids with neat parts. If you’re adding marley braiding hair, this is the time to do it.
Braid and Wrap Method: use a crochet needle to insert the water wave hair at the root of your braid, or start braiding the water wave hair at the root of your natural braid, and then wrap over it. Fluff the water wave hair up for a more natural look. Wrap your braids firmly at first, and then wrap more loosely in order to get the relaxed butterfly hair look. As you continue to wrap down the length of your hair, wrap over your thumb in no particular pattern to create loops. The more loops, the flufflier your butterfly locs will look.
Crochet Method: this can be quicker than the Braid and Wrap method. You simply slide the crochet hook with hair through the base of your braided hair while the latch is closed. Once the hook is halfway through, open the latch of the needle and hook it to your hair, then close the latch and pull back through your braid - no wrapping needed.
You don’t need to dip butterfly locs in hot water. The loops and wrapping take care of this for you, and because it’s a more relaxed style it doesn’t need to look perfect.
