Its been almost 7 months since Ive been to the salon. I was on a spiritual journey and during that time going to the salon wasnt important.
I experienced matting this time around after I washed my locs. If not properly moisturized they can even break off at the root. Using a good moisturizing cream made specifically for locs will help with this, and if you know you are prone to breakage you can help by supplementing your nutrition.
While part of loc maintenance is the retwist, frequent twisting is not recommended as this tends to cause thinning and breakage. I recommend a retwist every 6-8 weeks, but because everyone’s hair is different…Do You! Make personal recommendations based on what will work best for you and your hair.
The common mistakes that are made with locs include: improper partings, weak foundations, poor product choices, and too much manipulation. Of these common mistakes, poor product choices are the most detrimental because they can lead to scalp issues, build-up, breakage, and thinning of locs. Did you know that product mistakes made in the beginning or early stages of your loc journey can take years to manifest into devastating problems, some of which require the damage to be cut out.Think about all those years of growth thrown away. Literally.
My goal is to help you keep your locs strong , long , healthly and flourishing
