Starting and maintaining healthy locs can be a rewarding journey, but it can also be a challenge if you are not properly informed. Here are some tips to help you start and maintain healthy locs.

Prepare your hair: Before starting your locs, make sure your hair is healthy and well-moisturized. This will ensure that your locs will form and mature properly. If your hair is unhealthy consider waiting a few months so that you can properly treat your hair with a series of pre-shampoo and hot oil treatments to nourish your hair. 

Choose the right method: There are several methods for starting locs, including two-strand twists, comb coils, interlocking, braids, and instant locs (crochet method). Choose the method that works best for you and your hair type.

Use the right products: It is important to use products that are specially formulated for locs. These products will help to keep your locs hydrated, nourished, and free of buildup. Avoid using products with sulfates, phthalates, parabens, PEGs, waxes, mineral oils and other toxic chemicals as they can cause buildup and weigh down your locs.

Be patient: Locs take time to form and mature. Be patient and allow your locs to grow at their own pace. Avoid wearing tight styles or manipulating your locs too frequently, as this can cause damage and slow down the maturing process. Your locs thrive when they are simply left alone to flourish.

Properly clean your locs: Regular washing is important to keep your locs clean and healthy. Use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo, and avoid over-shampooing, as this can strip your locs of natural oils. Use a Rosewater Mistas a leave-in conditioner to keep your locs hydrated. Apply a light oil to your scalp after your wash to prevent dryness. 

Protect your locs at night: Invest in a satin pillowcase or a silk/satin bonnet to protect your locs from friction and breakage. 

Regularly look at your locs: Be sure to take a look at your locs at least once a week to remove any debris or lint that is on the surface of your locs. Avoid digging in your locs to get lint and debris out as this will cause thinning for sure!

Seek professional care: If you are unable to care for your locs yourself, consider visiting a licensed loctician for regular maintenance and advice. They can help to keep your locs healthy and provide you with tips and advice for maintaining healthy locs.  However, my recommendation is trying your best to care for your own crown! 

By following these tips, you can start and maintain healthy locs that are beautiful, nourished, and free of damage, buildup and lint.  Peace and blessings on your loc journey!

All you'll need

I love these Loclicious products. I first became aware of this company through a YouTuber who purchased their faux locs. I brought them and was very satisfied with my purchase. A few years later I decided to actually lock my own hair and wanted to try out their products for loc'd hair. I love the products. I only use their products on my locs. I wish the sizes were bigger however, because I go through them at least the shampoo, and that Loclicious Hydrating Rose water whoo Chile, it's a wrap. I don't let nobody touch that. Got my locs light and luxurious. NO BUILD UP. This company lives up to it's product. The smell is so pleasant. You will not be disappointed.
