5 Things To Keep In Mind While Caring For Your Locs
Don’t worry, be happy!
Dreadlocks are an expression of beauty with liberty. Freeform, sister locks or twisted, whatever form your locks maybe, they require a great deal of care and maintenance. So here are a few things to keep in mind if you’re planning to get ‘em dreads.
1. Disciplined Dreads
Nah, no stress, your dreads won’t have you waking up in the wee hours of the morning. Not that dreadful! Just put a healthy hair regimen in place. This includes wearing a scarf before sleeping to retain the moisture and protect your hair from damage.
2. A Thorough Wash And Dry
This may be in contrast with the age-old delusion of not washing your locs. But of course, you don’t need to wash it immediately after their formation. We recommend you do so weekly, after a month has passed. The hair vines tell us that ProfectiV Mega Growth Stimulation Shampoo is great for when you decide on a wash. It does not leave any residue and that’s a plus for hair growth.
Be sure however to dry it completely. You don’t want to ward off people with the damp odour from your locs.
3. Moisturize Away
Admit it, c’mon! Your locs are always thirsty. Treat them with a spray of water at intervals, especially on days when the sun gets to them, to quench them with the moisture they crave. If you want to nurture you dreads, Dr.Miracles Follicle Healer Energizing System Hydrating Oil will lend smoothness to their texture. Just rub it in your palm and apply it gently over your locs.
Sure re-twisted locs are great eye-candy! But an addiction can cause more harm than good. Excessive re-twisting causes hair breakage and weakens the roots. Patience is key. Let it take its course and grow naturally.
