Loc Retwist near you
Whatever loc stage journey you are in, maintaining the locs is an integral step in the overall appearance and health of your locs. The technique that is used by your loctician to maintain the locs is significant to your loc formation. Loc retwist is a great technique for this. It should be done at least every 6-8 weeks and consistency is essential for this step. New hair grows every 4-6 weeks and it is essential for the hair to be retwisted regularly and not just occasionally.
Loc retwist is not an easy task as it requires the locs to be retwisted from the root all the way to the ends. This is also a perfect time for a loctician to assess the health of your hair and make any necessary adjustments and repair any damaged loc. Loc retwist involves the locs being washed, preferably with a clarifying shampoo until your scalp and strands are clean. Hair is conditioned to hydrate the locs, once rinsed the hair is dried and the locs are retwisted. This can be using a comb or using the palm of your hands (palm rolling) to ensure the locs are retwisted, well maintained, and will hold for longer.
