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.
We all have busy schedules with work, kids, events etc. Keeping my locs looking fresh after my salon visit by myself almost impossible. Taking 3-5 hours out of our busy day just doesn’t seem realistic and the reality is many of us stretch our in-between salon visits to the max. But think about it, we feel our best when our hair done. So, how do we keep our hair on fleek with our busy schedules?
The answer is simple – change it up and improvise. You came to the right place today because I have the solutions to help all you busy ladies.
