Washing Your Locs Between Salon Appointments

What you’ll need:


Use a residue-free product to clean your locks. The frequency with which you wash your locks will depend on your lifestyle. If you’re more active than most, then you’ll need to consider washing your hair more often to reduce the build-up that sweat can produce on your scalp. If you’re less active, your dreadlock maintenance routine shouldn’t have to include washing your
hair more than weekly.

After the hair is saturated with water, pour shampoo on the scalp and continue down the length of the locs. Massage the entire scalp and scrub the locs for several minutes (if they are long enough). Rinse well and repeat.

Much debated in the dreadlocks community, conditioning your hair restores your locks from the root and can correct surface damage. After your final shampoo, condition your locs and cover with a plastic cap for 5 minutes. Rinse very well.

Moisturize the hair and scalp with a nourishing loc butter, be sure to evenly distribute the product.

Retwist and style as usual.
