How to take care of your locs


First things first, find an experienced loctician. A professional is best-qualified  to give you personalised advice for your hair texture. They'll guide you to grow your perfect style and recommend products that will work best for your desired outcome.

Your daily routine should include using moisture-infusing hair sprays, sealed with a light hair oil. Wash and condition your hair weekly and massage your scalp to encourage growth. Visit your salon every three weeks for a deep conditioning treatment and scalp base.

A pre-poo of a mix of apple cider vinegar and baking soda can help remove lint on the hair or residue that heavy products often leave on hair.

Avoid causing unnecessary friction on the hairline with harsh brushes and head wraps. Be gentle with this type of hair and rather use a wet cloth to flatten the edges. Also, stay away from pulling your hair too tightly when twisting!
